Where is your sea moss from?

Our wild-harvested sea moss is sustainably sourced from the nutrient-rich Atlantic Ocean waters off the coast of Maine. We partner with local seaweed harvesters who hand-collect the sea moss using environmentally responsible, small-scale methods that protect the marine ecosystem. The harvesters only take what is needed, leaving plenty behind to regenerate naturally. This ensures a reliable supply of fresh, high-quality sea moss straight from the ocean to you.
