FSS Sea Kelp BioFerment PBF 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. FSS Sea Kelp BioFerment PBF was designed specifically to provide the benefits associated with sea kelp.
Due to its high concentration of vitamins and minerals FSS Sea Kelp BioFerment PBF 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 FSS Sea Kelp BioFerment PBF, it can also be used to convey both a sense of luxury and tradition.
FSS Sea Kelp BioFerment PBF, 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.
