Our St Lucia Irish Sea Moss takes about 5 weeks until the seeds have grown to a size good enough to harvest. Everything, from the collection to the propagation, is done by hand in a way that dates back centuries.
Once St Lucia Irish Sea Moss is harvested, it is cleaned and then left to dry under the sun for 3-7 days, depending on temperature and sun availability. This process, called bleaching, allows the Sea Moss to dry and condense for long term storage and packing.
The beauty of our Wildcrafted Sea Moss is in its resilience, so it can maintain nutrients and bounce back once reconstituted.
Due to the natural fluctuations in salinity, nutrients, sunlight, and fresh water in our growing regions, there will be variations in the sea moss depending on the time of harvest. Every batch, and even every package, of sea moss is a unique representation of the natural environment and time it was harvested. For this reason there can be differences in color and size that are completely natural.
