The journey....

Grupo Ensol, our team of beach cleanup experts, conducts coastal cleaning and remediation of Sargassum seaweed in Quintana Roo, Mexico. We only collect Sargassum on-shore or nearshore to avoid hurting ocean wildlife in the process. We divert as much Sargassum as possible from landfills and bring it back to our facilities to be upcycled.


We bring the seaweed back to our processing facility where we select only the freshest Sargassum for SeaBalance®. After thorough rinsing and quality control steps, we then refine the cleaned Sargassum into components that can be stored and used in our advanced biomaterial products.

Impact on people

This all-natural, upcycled emulsifier delivers a silicon-like skin feel in a wide range of personal care applications. SeaBalance® is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and non-allergenic.

Impact on planet

Our products reduce methane emissions and restore ocean health while reducing the use of fossil fuels and synthetics. It’s a win win.

Sustainability Impact

Sargassum, a seaweed that once grew in an isolated part of the Atlantic Ocean, has started to bloom out of control and overwhelm beach ecosystems across the Caribbean. It accumulates on beach ecosystems and decomposes which releases methane gas into our atmosphere, leeches heavy metals into the groundwater, hurts tourism, and blocks sea turtle babies from reaching the ocean.

Carbonwave transforms Sargassum into valuable materials, harnessing the potential of this abundant seaweed while mitigating climate change and protecting our environment.
