Planet Botanicals named top 10 indie beauty brand

Planet Botanicals was named one of the Top 10 Indie Beauty Brands for its Seaweed Beauty Collection! Planet Botanicals has won awards for its skincare products including Best New Beauty Product Award at the Natural Products Expo East show. Planet Botanicals participated in the entrepreneurial 2018 Top Gun Program and was a finalist at the pitch contest in Portland held in March. The company was also selected to be in the Greenlight Maine TV program for the 4th Season.

Planet Botanicals Seaweed Beauty collection is made with hand-harvested Maine Seaweed and every product is artisan made in Westbrook, Maine. This luxurious skincare collection is 99.7% to 100% natural and made with organic highly nourishing Maine seaweed and other high potency plant-based ingredients.

 “Seaweed is one of the best ingredients for the skin”

Michele Gilfoil, Founder of Planet Botanicals

Seaweed has powerful anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits and over 50 vitamins and minerals that keep the skin healthy and looking its best. Planet Botanicals uses a proprietary blend of five types of Maine Seaweed to extract the maximum potency from the seaweed.

Michele developed the Seaweed BeautyTM Collection after infusing seaweed into a body cream to relieve her dry sensitive skin. She gave samples to friends and family and soon the word spread and people were calling non-stop to buy the “Seaweed Dream Cream”.


The Seaweed BeautyTM Collection is available at the Portland Maine Jetport as well as in 50 gift shops along the coast of Maine. Based on the success of this product line, Planet Botanicals will be expanding their Seaweed Beauty Collection and introducing eco-friendly Seaweed Shampoo Bars and Conditioner Bars. These eco-friendly shampoo and conditioner bars are plastic-free and travel and camping necessity! One shampoo bar is equivalent to 2-3 bottles of shampoo.
