Hi everyone,

Would the sea kelp bioferment mixed with the detergent remove water proof mineral makeup and sunscreen?

I think you will have to use the no-nosense cleanser for that.

The no-nonsense cleanser is a great make-up remover, but I do use seakelp+detergent to remove my makeup (I wear mineral makeup over sunscreen every day) and it does a great job of 'taking it all off.'

I have found the SKB with decyl glucoside to be the most thorough cleanser I've been able to use on my rosacea.

Cheers!

Thanks for the replies. Do you mix the detergent into the whole container of sea kelp or mix a bit at a time? Do you transfer it to a bottle or something so you don't have to dip your hands in it each time?

Sea Kelp is expensive.  I have been using a wonderful cleanser made up of 30% sea kelp (3 teaspoons), 70% aloe vera gel (7 teaspoons - from Trader Joes) and a dash of surfactant.

This recipe is a good starting point so you don't use your entire jar of sea kelp right away.  Aloe vera gel is wonderful too !

Hello!

Just had to say that I calmed a horrible flare down using Sea Kelp mixed with Jojoba Oil/Lecithin.  I applied it with a brush, left it on for a few hours while at home (occasionally misting with Evian or rose water).  I did that two days in a row, and it was amazing.

Next time, I might try applying a tiny bit under my usual Anti-Inflammatory Cream or Restoration Cream at night before bed.

As to the Sea Kelp/detergent removing mineral make-up and sunscreen, I want to say yes (I use Bare Minerals), but I will admit that first I use a wipe-off liquid cleanser at night (it looks like water) that I get from my esthetician, then use the sea kelp/detergent as my second wash, to calm my cheeks.  You don't need a lot, just the size of a dime or nickel.  

I also just mix up 2 ounces of it at a time; I put it into a plastic squeeze bottle from Long's.  After a day or so, it liquifies, so don't worry that at first it's kind of chunky.  At least, mine is, since I keep my Sea Kelp in the fridge.
