Algae (Blue Lagoon)


Yes, one of the main ingredients in the miraculous water of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland is algae.  According to their researchers there are around 200 different microorganisms in the water (don’t be afraid - they’re all apparently benign or good for you) and 60% of these are new species, which may only be found in the Blue Lagoon.


It’s also one of the main reasons for that wonderful blue colour.


You can benefit from the algae just by relaxing in the water, or you can take it one step further with a self applied algae face mask from the swim up cafe, or one of the signature algae treatments.  (Or by buying Blue Lagoon products to take home and use in your own bathroom!)
