As kids, #seafoam days were #spa days. We would search the #shoreline to gather up handfuls of foam to collect in a #seastar -shaped bucket and proclaim to the adults in our lives the benefits of applying the ocean product to face and hair. Seafoam results from agitated #seawater forming bubbles, rustled up by wind and waves. It contains seawater, so salts, proteins, fats, dead #algae etc. The seawater near my home is also about 5% childhood bathing suits. RIP Little Mermaid tankini. Seafoam production can occur when there is more dissolved organic matter in the water, which acts as a surfactant, decreasing surface tension and allowing foam to form. That's why large seafoam formations can follow die offs of algae during algal blooms. While generally harmless, in 2007 scientists found that seabirds along the California coast were affected by a soap-like foam from an algae bloom, which removed birds' feather waterproofing, making it difficult to fly and decreasing their insulation https://t.co/sq1IwkgNMQ I'm not sure if I should tell my mother that I had her continuously apply what was mostly decomposing ocean critters to her face. But hey, in the end it can't be any odder than what #GOOP suggests, so maybe we were just misguided visionaries. #science #scicomm
