Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and we believe in caring for it correctly. Seadrop creates skincare that is designed to hydrate, protect, and revive your skin's natural barrier.
We believe in clean, high-quality concentrates that not only nourish your skin, but also support our oceans and our planet with zero-waste, biodegradable, and refillable packaging.
Seadrop brings luxurious textures that easily transform from powder to liquid for everybody's daily rituals — clean, simple, and designed for all skin types with inclusivity in mind.
When we found out that most skincare is 70-95% water, loaded with synthetic preservatives (since water breeds bacteria), and stored in single-use packaging, we were initially shocked. After realizing that the solution to cleaner, more sustainable, and all-around better skincare lies in waterless products, we decided to do something about it.
We also wanted to create nourishing products that allow your skin to function naturally – we built supportive skincare that creates the optimal environment for your skin barrier to do exactly what it’s designed to do: heal itself.
Seadrop Skincare is rooted in the belief that small changes – like switching to waterless skincare – can create a long-term ripple effect in both the health of our skin and the state of our planet. Performance comes first, and we were able to formulate products that are truly incredible and get us excited about using our skincare every day. And we wanted to make the process fun – our crushable skincare is a unique sensory experience that you won’t get tired of. Give it a try, let us know what you think, and be excited about the future of skincare. Your Seadrop is the ripple effect in the skincare industry!
When I was younger, I used to love making homemade face masks with my mom in our North Carolina kitchen. My grandmother passed recipes of sandalwood powder, Multani Mitti (also known as Fuller’s Earth clay powder), and ‘besan’ (or chickpea flour) down to my mom, and I was thrilled to test out the cooling concoctions on Saturday afternoons. As I grew up and moved to Manhattan, I forgot about the skincare recipes I made in my kitchen – I just wanted easy skincare that both worked well and was experientially fun.
Then, when I worked in the beauty industry, I discovered how most of my skincare products were 70-95% water (the same water we have on tap at home). It wasn’t until early 2021 when I realized that my grandmother was onto something – she was one of the early adopters of waterless skincare.
THE FUTURE (of skincare)
I couldn’t contain my excitement for the field and I knew I needed to bring waterless skincare to the world. After finding a cosmetic chemist (and running through many formula iterations,) we're thrilled to unveil the Hydrating Seafoam Cleanser to you. The soft-pressed, uncoated cleanser beads break apart between your fingers, and a few drops of water transform the cleanser concentrate into a luxurious lather. Given the waterless formulation, we were able to eliminate artificial preservatives (and single use plastics) across our supply chain. Since we wanted to ensure proper dosing of the cleanser beads, we intentionally formulated in tablet form (rather than loose powder form). Clinically tested, dermatologist approved, and allergen-free, our patent-pending, vegan, cruelty-free Hydrating Seafoam Cleanser bead is the first ripple in the new wave of waterless skincare. I can’t wait for you to try it!
