Sea Kelp Bioferment

Sea Kelp Bioferment is a natural kelp extract that has been derived by fermentation of Sea Kelp using Lactobacillus, the same bacteria that produces yogurt, sour cream and sour dough breads, among many other foods. Fermentation breaks down the cellular tissue of the kelp leaf, thereby increasing the bioavailability of the naturally occurring chemical compounds abundant in kelp. Fermentation and subsequent reduction of the kelp liquor results in the concentration of these vital nutrients. Naturally occurring algin, the mucilaginous intercellular material found in kelp thickens this product to a gel consistency.

Sea Kelp Bioferment, a natural film former, acts as an excellent oil-free moisturizer. It can be used full strength on the face and body and used as a gentle styling gel in the hair, adding bounce and shine. It can be used as a base for the addition of many of the cosmetic actives we carry or added to formulations of creams, lotions, toners, shampoos and other personal care products.

Sea Kelp Bioferment is non-ionic.  It can be added to the water phase of cosmetic formulations and heated to 75°C (167°F) without problems.  It is heat stable. Note, it is not compatible with Biguanide 20, a cationic preservative.

Our Sea Kelp Bioferment is created from Bull Kelp harvested from the Atlantic Coast of North America.  The kelp does not originate in the waters of China or Japan.

Today is my 5th order from LotionCrafter. I really like their product. One product I ordered, the next time I purchased it from Whole Foods and I notice the difference in the quality of the product. I once placed an order and decided to change it about 2 hours later. It was to late. The order had already processed. They sell good quality products and shipment is fast. I usually don't like to pay shipping but for LotionCrafter I do because I do like their product and prices. Keep up the good work.
