I don't know about you, but I love to support local indie businesses who create, produce, market, and sell their products. It's so very important to continue to raise up our local entrepreneurs to continue to put money back into Maine.

I have uncovered two superheroes who are caring for our planet, more specifically our beautiful state's ocean, by "putting the environment above profits."

When I came across their local indie business and saw what they were doing, I had to share it with you.

Claire and Carly grow and harvest their own seaweed as well as botanicals straight from their own island farm in Maine. In essence, they transform seaweed/botanicals into healthcare and skincare products.

It is so enlightening when people take something ugly and turn it into something helpful and beautiful for mother nature.

Claire and Carly say on their website,

"When you purchase from Dulse & Rugosa you're not simply supporting a small indie business but a family farm, a Maine seaweed harvester and a business that puts the environment above profits.  We work for cleaner oceans and a balanced planet."

It's refreshing to see artisan products coming locally out of Goff Island, located near Acadia National Park.

Their artisan skin care is involved in several different products including haircare, healthy faces, and skin. The seaweed is transformed into shampoo bars and body scrub, to name a couple of examples.

What's even more fantastic is that this seems to not only be geared toward woman's needs. They also offer beard and scalp oil, so this duo produces products for all genders!

Seaweed is a staple in Maine and now, at least for me, it is something that can be useful to make you feel good about yourself!
