Im 45 years old; average looking skin for my age. Applied a small pea sized amount of Sea Kelp Bioferment to my face full strength in the am after washing my face of previous night makeup.; let face "dry". Then aplied my foundation as always. Noticed my thick, heavy foundation applied more easily and smooth. Keep in mind this is DAY TWO of me using this. TWO women at work ( separate departments) commented how wonderful my face looked! One specifically came up to me and asked what I was.. ...»

Many thanks for the Silicone DM. This product is lovely quality; it is light, silky, and leaves no residue at all. I use it in the base recipe for a mouldable polymer that I then use to make a simulated 'Amber' for bead making. At the end of this process I have a silky, translucent polymer plus the most gorgeous hands in the studio ! My thanks again, Helen.. ...»

I have a blind faith of this Pre Liposome Microemulsion, especially it is made in Japan & of Squalane & Lecithin which I am fond of. I mixed it with Palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 peptides liposome emulsion & some other water actives like Glucosamine, Niacinamide, Glutathione etc and the serum was very smooth and moisturizing. As it claims, it penetrates into the skin very well. I will mix it with oil soluble actives in my next batch. .. ...»

This is an excellent additive for increased absorption into the skin. I personally incorporate it with the ceramide lamellar crystal emulsion and multi lamellar base cream V2. The final product delivers a soothing, calming, super moisturizing liquid that penetrates the skin and helps the healing of severe skin issues such as mine (ichthyosis, keratosis). I highly recommend this formulation for those who are not getting any relief from other products and prescription topicals. My skin is finally .. ...»

I am very happy with my purchase of SKB from BulkActives. Good quality and packaged well. I use SKB in my Vitamin C serum. Will buy from them again. Can't beat the price either! .. ...»

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 also blow dry on occasion and use a straightener daily. This is my holy grail and hair products. I believe it keeps my hair "young". Their SeaK.. ...»

I add this to my body lotion & use it as a hair serum. I like how it leaves your hair soft & frizz free. I do feel that it leaves my curls bouncy without the stiffness associated with hair gels or spray. BulkActives has the best price for this product and it allows me to use more of it without breaking the bank :).. ...»

Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base
Pre Liposome Microemulsion Preparation Base, is especially suited as carrier for active ingredients in light lotions or serums. Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base is a micro-emulsion premix based on hydrogenated soybean lecithin and olive squalane. Pre Liposome Microemulsion Preparation Base forms clear to translucent preparations with excellent texture just by diluting with water. BulkActives' Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base allows to prepare clear / translucent formulations with various oily ingredients, such as oil-soluble vitamins, vegetable oils, esters, hydrocarbons and silicone oils. Larger amounts of oily ingredients can be incorporated in the product without the texture being affected by high surfactant levels. Hydrogenated soybean lecithin works as a natural emulsifier and promotes penetration of actives into the skin.  Liposomes are synthetic microscopic vesicles with an external, fully enclosed double lipid membrane of phospholipids. Liposomes are not active themselves, but function in creams as carriers of  active substances to enhance penetration into the skin's fatty layers.

Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base in skin care:

  • penetration enhancer
  • base serum/lotion
  • emulsifier

Liposome Light Moisturizing Gel (oil free)
Liposome Light Moisturizing Gel (oil free) is a light, oil free gel with a liposome structure, formulated with Sclerotium Gum and Lipo 75% phosphatidylcholine. It has been formulated especially to be used as an excellent light moisturizer, perfect for hot climates; it can readily accept up to 10% oil; AND it can accept actives which have been pre-dissolved in either water or Propanediol. Due to Liposome Light Moisturizing Gel's lipsome structure (created with the almost prohibitively expensive Lipo 75% phosphatidylcholine), it can encapsulate actives. This will require sonification, which can be easily done at home with the use of a cheap sonic cleaner and regular stirring. Liposome Light Moisturizing Gel has been custom formulated and manufactured for BulkActives by the same company which produces our Seakelp Bioferment and Multi-Lamellar creams.

Multi Lamellar Base Cream with SeaKelp Bioferment and Sclerotium Gum (No Oil and No Polymer)
In order for skin to be healthy we need a well maintained stratum corneum. A healthy stratum corneum offers protection against environmental stress and water loss.  BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream imitates the skin’s own lipid structure and enhance the skin's natural barrier function. 

BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is formulated with a new generation, European, sugar based, liquid crystals emulsifying system based on sorbitan stearate with sucrose cocoate. It is formulated specifically for DIY Skin care customers. BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream can be used as is. However, it can easily accept both water, oil, and water soluble and oil soluble powders and liquids. BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is a great carrier for active skin care ingredients. The multi lamellar structure is ideal for even and effective delivery of skin actives into the skin.

BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is exclusively and professionally formulated, manufactured and packaged for us by the same biochemist who manufactures our seakelp bioferment, pumpkin bioferment, and lemon bioferment.

NOTE: Based on customer feedback we have reformulated our multi lamellar cream, making it "greener' and even more elegant!  In this NEW formulation we have also replaced the xantham gum with Sclerotium Gum, the preservative system combines the extremely safe, yet effective, Sodium Levulinate and Sodium Anisate, with Potassium sorbate and citric acid.  This means our cream now does NOT contain parabens or phenoxyethanol.

Multi Lamellar Base Cream with SeaKelp Bioferment and Sclerotium Gum (No Oil and No Polymer): 

  • Multi-lamellar cream offers outstanding moisturization
  • skin barrier repair and maintenance
  • optimized delivery of actives

Benefits of Liquid crystal systems:

  • Improved dissolution of poorly water soluble actives .
  • Liquid crystals can protect and facilitate the transport of fragile molecules e.g. proteins
  • Controlled active release:
  • Multilayers reduce the interfacial transport of actives dissolved in oil phase
  • Active delivery can be tailored depending on the active
  • Oleosome structure may enhance delivery of oil soluble ingredients
  • Hydrosome structure may enhance delivery of water soluble actives
  • Prolonged hydration potential:
  • Up to 50% water bound up in swollen water layers.
  • This water is less prone to evaporation.
  • In-vivo tests moisturization lasts 3 times longer
  • Effective Transepidermal Water Loss (TWEL)
  • Structure similar to skin
To thicken these creams after adding actives dissolved in waters add a few drops of Gelmaker Ultra (polymer emulsifier)
