Lydia Sarfati and Repêchage - The Original Seaweed Authority



Repêchage Pure Seaweed Filtrate



At the heart of all the Repêchage products is our rich pure, exclusive seaweed filtrate. The Repêchage Pure Filtrate of Seaweed complex is derived by a proprietary extraction method that creates a fluid containing all the rich seaweed phyto-nutrients in their most potent form.


Why Seaweed?



My personal commitment in creating the most beautiful products that are effective and produce results really came from my own personal experience with the sea.


Lydia circa 1977 at the opening of the Klisar Skin Care Center in New York City
Repêchage was born from my travels in the 1970’s. In Israel, my attention was drawn to the flavors and smells of the country’s desert vegetables and fruits. I discovered the farming community was using seaweed as a bio stimulant and fertilizer. In a dry climate, farmers were able to produce an abundance of fruits and vegetables.


After meeting with seaweed harvesters and marine biologists all over the world it became evident that seaweed was the most complete and natural source for health, beauty, and wellness, and was going to be what I focused on with skin care.


The seaweed plant has no roots so it feeds through osmosis, absorbing minerals and vitamins from the seawater. Because of its feeding process, seaweed becomes a dense concentration of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, macro elements, phytohormones and amino acids. I discovered two species, Laminaria digitata and Ascophyllum Nodosum, which were both complete sources of nutrients, containing 42 trace elements and minerals, 18 amino acids, 12 vitamins, phyto hormones, and natural anti-oxidant material such as phlorotannins, sulfated polysaccharides, fucosterol and fucoxanthins.


C-Serum, the Original Seaweed Serum



It was from this research that I created my first professional treatment, the Four Layer Facial®. Named the Facial of the Century by Cosmopolitan UK, this ground-breaking facial incorporated layer upon layer of seaweed and minerals from both the earth and the sea. The Four Layer Facial circa 1980 and the Four Layer Facial in 2015.


Top editors and clients found that nothing made skin more luminous and hydrated. One of my first at-home products was C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate. C-Serum®, short for cytoserum, is our special seaweed Laminaria Digitata filtrate, the first layer of the Four Layer Facial, and it has been my secret for perfect skin since 1980. The C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate, circa 1980 and the C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate today.


Repechage Algo Mist



10 years later, in 1990, we created Algo Mist®, a unique combination of seaweed filtrate extract, Vitamin C, Gingko Biloba, Aloe and Orange Water. Unlike other products that are pure water in a bottle, this spray hydrator helps keep skin feeling smooth and soft through-out the day. Algo Mist® Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray.


We now have scientific research on several different species of sea plants, all with unique properties influenced by the oceanic regions where they grow and formulated into over 100 different award-winning professional and consumer products.


Why Repêchage?



Repêchage means second chance, a second chance for all of us to have beautiful skin. What inspired me to call my company Repêchage were the reactions of those who first experienced the Four Layer Facial®. The results were amazing. Everyone said "Wow! My skin has never felt so wonderful! It's like being reborn!" But its original meaning came from fishermen trying once more to make a catch by casting out their nets again, to literally "re-fish" or "re-pesce," so the connection to seaweed and the sea was perfect. To me, it means that anyone that has struggled to have great skin can have a Repêchage, a second chance.


Sustainably Harvested



In the US, off the coast of Maine, Repêchage has worked with leading scientists and aquaculturists to sustainably harvest several species of nutrient-rich seaweed. It is key to source seaweed from the most pristine environments, such as off the coast of Down East Maine.


Seaweed can be wild harvested, or grown through aquaculture. For wild harvesting the harvest takes place early in the morning, during the lowest tides of the spring and summer months that accompany the new and full moons.


Seaweed drying on ropes on the Maine coast. Photo courtesy of Repêchage. Or, seaweed can be grown on ropes suspended in seawater, harvested by boat along floating lines and gathered into nets or large storage bins on harvesting boats. Crops are harvested over a period of a month or two until temperature conditions limit the growth of the crop. The seaweed is initially stored in wet chambers then dried at temperatures that minimize degradation of bioreactive compounds.


Most manufacturers of seaweed-based products use the oven drying method of processing. This method yields a product, which contains trace elements but may be deficient in vitamins and amino acids that are heat sensitive.This is where Repêchage makes all the difference. Once dried, the seaweed is packed and sent to our ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility. There, by an exclusive proprietary method, Repêchage chemists expel the intercellular fluid from the fibrous seaweed tissue while retaining the activity of the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids, processed into the pure filtrate in small artisanal batches. You know when it’s a filtrate day---the whole facility smells like a day at the beach!


The Repêchage Manufacturing Facility in New Jersey



This filtrate is then properly refrigerated and stored for six months to allow the liquid to reach its full potency. Then, it is incorporated into the Repêchage products until the next harvest arrives. Nothing is purer or more effective at helping skin look and feel smoother and softer.


Going Forward



In 2015, Charles Yarish, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Department of Marine Sciences, University of Connecticut, Stamford, became a consultant to the Repêchage Board of Directors, working with David and I to create harvesting possibilities right in here the USA. As a leading environmentalist and aquaculturist, Dr. Yarish is sharing his research with us to help create sustainable, organic seaweed harvests that can benefit both us and the ocean.


It is like coming full circle: the sea has provided us with so much, and we need to give back in return. We invite everyone to enjoy our seaweed-based products. Welcome to Repêchage! Welcome to Beauty From the Sea!

It is for this reason that we have asked Professor Charles Yarish, Ph.D., professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Connecticut in Stanford, CT to join us as a member of the Repêchage Board of Directors. Below, Dr. Yarish provides interesting insights into the many important applications of seaweed in skin care.
