Hollywood, CA(Perfect Skin Today) 5/11/12/—Repêchage, the internationally acclaimed beauty & spa brand that pioneers the latest in marine biotechnology and seaweed science to deliver skin brightening, sun care, exfoliating, anti-aging and acne solutions. Meaning “to rescue” or “second chance,” Repêchage harnesses the renewing powers of seaweed to deliver complete collections for skin care, cosmetics, body and bath.

Founder and CEO Lydia Sarfati began Repêchage as the first company to bring seaweed-based cosmetics to the U.S. market. Repêchage researchers harvest several specific seaweeds off the Brittany Coast of France, and develop every product in one 50,000 square foot facility in Secaucus, NJ – So everything is completely quality controlled, and made in the U.S.A. The rich blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants in seaweed makes it the ideal main ingredient for delivering detoxifying, oxygenating, re-balancing, hydrating, anti-aging and renewing benefits.

With summer just a few weeks away, I thought this brand would be a great highlight for any ocean-themed stories, aquatic beauty tie ins you might be working on.  I’ve included some star picks for summer below, all have which have reeled in a number of famous faces.

Repêchage Hydra Soleil® Deep Relief Tea Gel ($38/ This new lightweight cooling gel instantly nourishes and hydrates sun exposed skin. A cocktail of aloe vera, cucumber, green white and red teas PLUS a proprietary blend of EcoCert seaweeds, this gel provides hydrating anti-oxidant properties. The EcoCert blend is a natural source of 12 vitamins including B12, C, E, K and Beta Carotene, 18 amino acids, and 42 trace elements. Essential fatty acids help maintain the skin barrier while Alginic Acid – a polysaccharide – helps to lock moisture into the skin.
Repêchage Algo Mist® Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray ($15/ This moisturizing mist is formulated with a unique combination of seaweed concentrate, Vitamin C and Gingko Biloba extract to help eliminate the appearance of fine lines due to excessive dryness, air travel, sun or exposure to cold.  HGTV Star, John Giddy, swears by this refresher to ‘curb’ any dryness or dehydration on set.
Repêchage C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate ($55/ This multivitamin supplement for the skin in comprised of highly concentrated seaweed extract rich in vitamins, minerals amino acids and trace elements. Helps to prevent dehydration, fine lines and to return moisture to restore overall skin vitality.
Repêchage Sea Spa Mineral Bath Salts ($27.98/ Relax and indulge as you transform your bath into a pool of tranquility.  A potent combination of seven essential oils: Rosewood, Cucumber, Lavender, Mandarin Orange, Grapefruit, Spearmint and Peppermint combine with the finest quality Sea Salts harvested from the Mediterranean Sea to help relieve stress and soothe muscle tension. Energizing essential oils alleviate tiredness so you can get a better, more restful night sleep.
Repêchage Vita Cura™ Triple Firming Cream ($76/ This superior moisturizing cream utilizes unique patented triple firming action to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin elasticity and firmness.  The formula is enhanced with Biomimetic Messenger Pentapeptides that are patterned on a specific natural collagen fragment signaling the cells to firm the skin. 
Blonde bombshell Katherine Heigl is addicted to this miracle cream for post-sun correction (the sun (UVA rays)/environmental factors break down elastin, causing skin laxity, fine lines even infection, warranting intense, restorative hydration and collagen-rebuilding); also a savior to Heigl as a new adoptive addition to the family will most definitely be keeping the star and her husband Josh Kelley up through the night.


Repêchage offers a full range of skincare treatments and products, based on select nutrient-rich seaweed plants harvested from the coasts of Brittany in France. The treatments and products are, as envisioned, gentle, effective and beneficial for the skin with ingredients which stand the test of time and state of the art formulations defy it! We have also designed at-home care product lines, which complement our spa treatments. Our high quality collections are formulated to meet the skincare needs of each and every age group and every skin type.
