I have been a regular customer of BulkActives SeaKelp. I've used it for years after washing my hair. I put a little in my hair and it makes it comb out tangles extremely easy. My hair is about to my midback. My hair is what I would call in pristine condition I think because of this. My hair is dyed so it's not like it is virgin hair.

I add this to my body lotion & use it as a hair serum. I like how it leaves your hair soft & frizz free.

BulkActives has the best price for this product and it allows me to use more of it without breaking the bank :).. ...»

Tetrasodium EDTA

About Chelators in DIY Skin Care

 "Chelators attract metal ions to prevent microorganism growth or adverse reactions with active or inactive ingredients in a formulation.  Use of chelators is especially important when metal-sensitive ingredients are used ( such as L-ascorbic acid, green tea extract etc.) It is a good idea to include a chelator in any formulation for which stability of an active is desired."  Make your own effective cosmetic treatments by Carol Demas
 

Tetrasodium EDTA

Tetrasodium EDTA, is a chelating agent often utilized in personal care products to control metal ions across a very broad pH range. In personal care products, these agents improve effectiveness, stability, hard water performance, rinsability, and shelf life of formulations. Tetrasodium EDTA can also be used to neutralize Carbomer, or raise the pH of personal care formulations.

Tetrasodium EDTA is suitable for products with a wide PH range and is recommended for products which are NOT made fresh on a weekly basis and require a longer shelf life.
