It also contains vitamins A, B, C, D, omega-3 fatty acids, and iodine. Irish moss actually tops hyaluronic acid as a humectant, as it contains high amounts of polysaccharides called carrageenans, which form a protective yet non-occlusive film over the skin and binds to water to help retain moisture in the skin. It helps to produce collagen and heal damaged/irritated skin.
