Blue Lagoon celebrates 30 years of bioactive beauty

Using the powerful benefits of natural sources has grown in popularity over the years, with the market for bioactive cosmetic ingredients expected to reach $2,215.96 million by 2028. The team behind the spa and Blue Lagoon product line in Iceland has been exploiting this precious resource for three years. decades.

In 1976, the Blue Lagoon took shape in the Svartsengi Resource Park on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, when geothermal seawater from underground volcanic aquifers (2,000 meters below the earth’s surface to be exact) was channeled to the surface. With local bathers and visiting tourists reporting extensive skin improvements, scientists began studying water properties in 1987, including Bárður Sigurðsson, who later became the chairman of the Blue Lagoon’s science committee. They found exceptionally high levels of silica in the geothermal seat, with immense benefits for healing psoriasis, strengthening the skin barrier, preventing collagen breakdown, and promoting collagen synthesis.

In 1992, doctor Grímur Sæmundsen founded Blue Lagoon Ltd. after intensively researching the benefits of water not only for skincare, but also for wellness and medical treatment. He took on Ása Brynjólfsdóttir, who remains the company’s director of R&D to this day, and led the development of the Blue Lagoon skincare line, which was launched after two years of development in 1995. One year previously, the Blue Lagoon Medical Clinic had opened. , offering natural treatments for psoriasis. “These 30 years of scientific journey have been amazing,” Brynjólfsdóttir told BeautyMatter. “Step by step, through our research, we deepened our knowledge of the Blue Lagoon water, its healing power and bioactive ingredients, which have been the driving force behind our innovation and sustainable development.”

Today, the company offers three lines of vegan products: BL+ luxury skincare, Derma body care for sensitive skin, and Spa offerings to recreate professional treatments at home. Although all use Blue Lagoon seawater, BL+ also targets anti-aging factors such as wrinkles, weakened skin barrier, dullness, dehydration, and lack of radiance and elasticity. “Our philosophy is to promote a minimalist regimen of highly effective, clean, and clinically proven products that can transform skin. With BL+, we are delivering the future of skincare, focusing on healthy skin and the well-being of people and the planet,” she explains.
