"I would like to add kelp powder to my emulsion body sugar scrub. The formulation contains no water, only butters & oils. I would like to use a preservative, preferably paraben free, and I know that it would be taken into the shower. What preservative would be effective against bacteria, fungus & mold - in this type of formulation with the addition of the kelp? Thank you for your help. Kimberly"

"Lovely"
COMMENTS:  Very good quality. Added to oils before adding lye solution in CP soap. The color was light at first and then came through strong during cure. Smells like seaweed at first and then it fades so that was nice.

"Great for Facials"
COMMENTS:  I mixed this with a blend of oils and sheat butter to make a lovely facial. I added a very small amount of tea tree oil. The final scent was lovely, not overly fishy at all. This powder is quite fine and mixed up well. I ended up with a smooth, thin paste when I was done. I'm excited to see what else I can add it too. I will happily buy this again when I run out.

"Works great as a facial mask! "
COMMENTS:  This is perfect for super-sensitive skin. My daughter has tried various clays and she always finds herself washing it off before the recommended time. She can use this with no problems, it nourishes, cleans and leaves the skin feeling soft and fresh. She's pregnant right now, so she can not use this, but she really looks forward to using it again.

COMMENTS:  I like the benefits of Kelp Powder but, I hate the scent of it. I try to mask it with Lemongrass essential oil or Tea Tree Oil but, it a very strong ocean smell, more like the scent of the things that wash up on the shore. Its a great product but, I wish they could do something about the scent.

"Additive for Cold Process Soaps"
COMMENTS:  I added kelp to my cold process batch with Lemongrass essential oil. The powder didn't discolor the soap - I used ¼ teaspoon, and allowed the CP bar to keep its natural color. This is a great additive for a CP bar with a strong essential oil (such as Lemongrass) to overpower any potential smell from the kelp.

"What a smell! "
COMMENTS:  Used in the hemp detergent free/low sweat base. I would add it a bit at a time as adding a teaspoonful just made a big clump. The smell is really kind of gross and fishy, but I used so little it went away and I used the sea kelp and agave fragrance oil which covers the fishy smell well.

COMMENTS:  I bought this to use in MP soap. I started a spa line, & wanted to try the kelp as it has so many vitamins & minerals. I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but I have to say the soap turned out just as I planned. Coconut milk MP soap with sea kelp made a great spa bar & the scent covered any of the kelp scent.

"Smelly"
COMMENTS:  I bought this ingredient in order to experiment with color in soap. I wanted to have a whitish bar of soap with a greenish swirl, and the fragrance I had selected for the cold process soad with fresh apple pie. Well, to my surprise I got quite another smell. Yes, this kelp does in fact smell like kelp or dead and drying out seaweed! My husband asked me what I had opened up when I added this ingredient--he smelled it from across the room. Well, I let my soap dry out in the garage rather than in the house because the smell initially persisted. But months later, the dead sea weed smell went away and we were actually able to use this pretty bar of soap.

"Great addition to soaps and mask!"
COMMENTS:  This kelp leaves your skin glowing and so refreshed looking. I add this to my face mask as well as soaps and everyone loves it. It of course does have a ocean/seaweed smell to it. It is not unpleasant but not like walking in a garden of flowers either. The amazing skin benefits outweigh the smell. I grew up at the ocean so the smell doesn't really bother me at all. The price is GREAT too!

"Wonderful Nutrition for the Skin!"
COMMENTS:  I put this in a facial masque with other powdered herbs. And, I also make a glycerin facial cleansing bar with this kelp. Wow! It does wonders for your complexion. Try adding lemon or another essential oil to help cover the scent. However, most people don't care if it has a strong scent...because the benefits your skin receive outweigh what it smells like. Try marketing your soap as 100% All-Natural with kelp and essential oil in it and watch it fly off the shelves.
