Bull Kelp Bio-Ferment is a fermented sea kelp extract that has been derived by fermentation of Sea Kelp using lactobacillus. Fermentation is one of the oldest technologies used by different peoples and cultures throughout the world for food preservation. Products such as cheese, bread, and wine have been produced, and consumed, for thousands of years by way of various fermentation techniques. Most fermentation is carried out via lactic acid bacteria (LAB) also known as lactobacilli. Fermentation acts as a preservative for foods, enabling smooth digestion, as well as increases the production of vitamins, minerals, and various other phyto-chemicals, depending upon the plant being fermented. The fermentation process converts ingredients from an inactive form to a bio-active form that our bodies can easily recognize and therefore process more efficiently.  Bull Kelp Bio-Ferment was designed specifically to provide the benefits associated with sea kelp.

 Due to its high concentration of vitamins and minerals Bull Kelp BioFerment can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care applications which are intended to deliver nutrients and providing moisturizing properties. As an added benefit this unique ingredient can be used to capitalize on trends for minerals and sea inspired ingredients in cosmetics. However, given the nature of  Bull Kelp Bio-Ferment PF, it can also be used to convey both a sense of luxury and tradition.  Bull Kelp Bio-Ferment, a natural film former, can also be used as a base or can be added to formulations for creams, toners, shampoos, lotions and other personal care products.

* This was not listed in the information supplied by the manufacturer but it is worth noting. I have very sensitive skin and put some of this gel around my eye area with no stinging or irritation. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it instantly firms the skin up around the eye and gives it a very smooth appearance, more effective than any product that is meant to do this. I mixed a bit of cocoa ferment for an eye treatment directly into the gel and it did take a bit of stirring to get is completely incorporated but it did not affect the viscosity. Five stars for this product and I plan to sell it bulk I like it so much.
