Sea Kelp in Skincare
Sea Kelp Bioferment (also known as sea kelp ferment) is a natural kelp extract that is obtained using traditional fermentation technology. It is a natural kelp extract that has been derived by fermentation of Sea Kelp using Lactobacillus, the same bacteria that produce yogurt, sour dough breads and sour cream, 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. In a natural process the mucilaginous intercellular material found in kelp thickens this product to a gel consistency.

Sea Kelp as Skin Care Ingredient

Sea Kelp Bioferment acts as an excellent oil-free moisturizer. It can be used in personal care products such as: creams and lotions, toners, shampoo, and hair conditioners. Sea kelp Bioferment can be used pure as a mask and even as a shaving gel.

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 an amazingly versatile product that provides nutrition and has great anti-inflammatory properties. Marine plants are very resilient as they have to survive in extreme, often-changing environments which make them very valuable in skincare. Brown algae helps prevent damage to amino acids and protects the cell’s membrane. This further protects against damage caused by free radicals, highly unstable molecules which accelerate the ageing process by attacking healthy cells and damaging collagen. The extract can also ‘re-organize’ the cell membrane to reverse cell damage and restore them to their healthy state. Sea kelp has the ability to grow up to two feet a day, making it a powerful instigator of cellular regeneration for your skin.


1. Nutrients

Sea kelp is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and calcium. In fact it contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food – 10 times more than milk.

2. Anti-Aging

The iodine content of kelp also appears to have other benefits. A 2008 study showed that the form of iodine in kelp effectively removed free radicals – chemicals that accelerate ageing – from human blood cells.

3. Hair Growth

There’s plenty of anecdotal evidence suggesting taking sea kelp supplements can boost hair growth. Whether or not it actually boosts growth, it contains nutrients involved in hair health and strength, so it may help reduce split ends and breakages.

Moisture Element in Skincare

4. Provides Moisture

If you have dry skin or suffer with flaky patches then you should also look for skincare containing Sea Kelp Extract. Due to its high iodine, mineral and antioxidant content, kelp is believed to help moisturise and soften the skin, and help it retain that moisture. Kelp also contains elements that easily penetrate the skin to remove toxins, soothe and HYDRATE the skin, and it also aids in keeping it smooth. If you suffer with breakouts then Sea Kelp is beneficial, it has anti-inflammatory properties which will help reduce the inflammation that causes red, painful breakouts.

Sea Kelp provides:

  • Chlorophyll-helps detoxify
  • Essential fatty acids-improve skin elasticity
  • Carbohydrates-stimulate the skin’s ability to heal
  • Vitamin A-an antioxidant, normalizes skin cells
  • Protein/amino acids-building blocks of cells, skin conditioners

Sea Kelp Bioferment can be used as a great nutritional active or as a skin care base for our other active ingredients. It is a perfect base for users with oily skin types as it moisturizes without supplying extra oil. It is also very effective for normal and dry skin, as it is a powerful nutritive moisturizer. From creams to serums to washes, it is the perfect active for almost any purpose.

Great thing that NAYELLE’s product contains Sea Kelp Bioferment which makes up a perfect moisturizer since concentration of vital nutrients is being used. Just imagine how healthy and glowing your skin will be if you use them regularly. Well as what they say, “There’s no other beauty than natural beauty”.
