Ferment of Bioferment - what is the difference?

There is no difference! The INCI is Lactobacillus/Nereocystis luetkeana Ferment Filtrate.


It is still sea kelp fermented with Lactobacillus, although bioferment sure does sound more exciting (and 'scientific').

Sea Kelp bioFerment (also know as seakelp ferment) is a natural kelp extract that is obtained using traditional fermentation technology. The fermentation process increases the bioavailability of many chemical compounds and allows for the isolation and concentration of naturally occurring phytochemicals.

Seakelp BiofFerment can be used pure as a mask and even as a shaving gel. Sea Kelp BioFerment can be mixed with creams or diluted with distilled water to provide an incredible base for most skin care needs.
