Sodium Alginate

Sodium Alginate
The Alginates are derived from brown algae (Phaeophycota). Sodium Alginate is a natural, water-soluble polysaccharide that produces a gel consistency when hydrated. Sodium Alginate has been used in the medical field, in the food industry, and more recently in cosmetics as a skin care ingredient.

The Herbarie's Sodium Alginate has a medium high mannuronic acid content and produces a soft gel with excellent skin feel. Sodium Alginate will help to soften, hydrate, and soothe skin and leave it feeling silky and soft. To create a skin care serum or hair gel using water, infusions, distillates, water-soluble extracts, etc., add 1%-2% Sodium Alginate and allow to hydrate for 30-60 minutes.

The Herbarie's Sodium Alginate is completely natural with no chemical modification.
-Easily dispersible in room temperature water (allow 30 – 60 minutes for complete hydration)
-Compatible with a variety of emulsifiers and other skin care ingredients
-Excellent “carrier” for antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients
-Pleasant feel
-Final formula pH may need to be adjusted
