About SeaQuarius Skincare - Our Journey

Rick Fox SeaQuarius founder

The Sea was my First Love...

and the Sea was my skin's best friend when swimming in the ocean around Miami and the Florida Keys in the 1980's.  I would even bring seawater home with me to splash into my face.  The natural chemistry of the seawater healed, soothed and cleansed my skin.  It was peaceful and calming but also a thrill to be closely connected to the Sea.  I remember thinking to myself "One day I will share this special seawater with the world...."  
Fast forward more than 20 years and my father, Dick Fox, suggested the company name of SeaQuarius I quickly dismissed this name as silly.  Soon after, however, we came to realize "SeaQuarius" could be a unique identity with a meaningful story behind it.  The zodiac sign Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer.  In a similar manner as the water bearer offers this life-giving liquid we offer natural, pure and pristine seawater in our unique sea-derived skincare formulas..  Seawater is the base ingredients in the SeaQuarius Sea Clean Foaming Facial Cleanser, The Sea My Eyes Brilliance Cream, The Youthful Aging and Firming Sea Cream as well as our Pearl and Pumice Exfoliator
OK this is a few years ago but too cute for me to not leave up...

Our ocean adventures included snorkeling, water skiing, fishing, relaxing, and hanging out on and under the waves.  This interaction with natural seawater had a positive impact on my physical health plus mental outlook during these early years. The mineral-rich seawater of the Florida Keys imparted a healthy glow to my facial skin, cleared acne, and would sped up the healing of cuts and scrapes on my body.  These skin-loving sea minerals intrigued my curiosity and the connection with the sea calmed my demeanor.  Being a teenager, in the 80's, had its own challenges; the ocean was my blissful escape.

Throughout history, the Romans, Greeks, and countless Island cultures have enjoyed the results, to the skin, from natural seawater with its healing and soothing properties. We too experienced these skin benefits first hand. Often, I would fill an empty two-liter coke bottle with Gulf Stream seawater, bring it home and pour this water over my head and face.  This was part of the morning shower routine.  The results, for my facial skin, were clear. The teenage acne lessened and at the age of around seventeen, I was determined to one day, share this special seawater.  The idea was, however, shelved for a quarter of a century...

25 years later, the business finally came to life.  In 2013, after many exhaustive years of focused seawater research, testing, fine tuning, and formulating with natural seawater and after working closely with Marine Biologists, Oceanographers, and Cosmetic Chemists, we brought the Sea Clean Foaming and Purifying Facial Wash to market. Our collaborative efforts have resulted in a unique skin care product. The Sea Clean incorporates seawater along with its balanced sea mineral composition.  The Sea Clean is pure, safe, and effective for cleansing, soothing and bringing about a better complexion for your skin.

During the early years of ingredient research, I discovered the ocean has hundreds of natural, health-promoting and beautifying compounds, to offer, in addition to seawater.  Nutrients in the form of Omega fatty acids, vitamins, amino acids, polysaccharides plus additional natural compounds are extracted from specially selected seaweeds and microalgae.  These nutrients are likely to have a positive impact on your skin's health. It has been proven these concentrated extracts, deeply hydrate, and nourish all skin types. The SeaQuarius Sea Serum and our Sea Cream have high concentrations of these ocean-derived nutrients to enhance your skin's natural beauty.

Sea minerals have collected in the oceans and in seawater for millions of years.  They originate from continental runoff and these minerals have been released into ocean water through undersea volcanism and through hydrothermal vents.  Sea minerals truly represent the essence of our Earth.
