I adore Sea kelp Bioferment,what amazing stuff! Could you please put this luxurious gel in a pump pack.Every time I open my big jar I worry about airborne contaminants and of course there is the problem of people sticking fingers in my sea kelp!

We should not worry so much about airborne contaminants, unless people start sneezing inside our sea kelp jar (just kidding!). I like pumps but they are expensive and the very viscous sea kelp is likely to clog them all anyway. It is frustrating to pay for an expensive pump and see it fail after a couple of uses. For the time being we will have to live with the jars. Options: wash hands before using the bioferment, use a clean spatula or spoon.

Incidentally, I believe there is too much talk these days about killing microbes, like using soaps with added antibacterials (we are simply encouraging evolution of antibacterial resistant bacteria). Kill one bacterium and another microbe (usually a worse one) will replace it. For example, talk to women and ask what is the most common complaint after a course of antibiotics. Need to say more?

Good point it is very thick. I'd still prefer to see it in a plastic bottle with a top like the one for rosehip oil and in my case, I might be opening and closing the lid half a dozen times a day, much easier just to sqeeze a bottle.

i would definitely be a buyer of a pump or tube dispenser....i am not so much worried about contaminants as loss of efficacy of the actives every time the jar is opened and exposed to the environment...antioxidants tend to lose their potency very quickly in jar design packaging

Yes, I would also like to see a squeeze top or pump type container.

A pump would not work with sea kelp bioferment because it is too viscous.

Please remember that skin care manufacturers have a simple solution when something does not "match" a container. If a product is too viscous, they can add water to get it to flow through a pump. Of course, we would not add water to sea kelp.

If you still want to use a pump, you can do the following: dilute the sea kelp by half using water (distilled or deionized water will do). Add Germaben II (a mix of preservatives containing parabens, diazolidinyl urea and propylene glycol) to 1% final concentration and pour (using a funnel) into a pump or squeeze-top container. You can reuse an old container by washing it in the dishwasher and rinsing with some rubbing alcohol, then leave open to dry.

i also saw something on an other site devoted to packaging called a 'tottle' which is just one of those upside down flip top bottles that i am sure has a wide enough opening to allow a thick product through..not nearly as airtight but more so than opening a jar...
