Seacode™ is a marine ingredient occurring naturally in non-genetically modified organisms (Non-GMO) and obtained through biotechnology for sustainable cosmetics since there is no harvesting nor extracting from nature.
Seacode™ contains Extracellular Polymeric Substances (ECPS) from Pseudoalteromonas bacteria and enhances the synthesis of essential dermal proteins: as shown in vitro, it induced the synthesis of collagen I by more than 100% in HDFa cultures. As a result, it combats fine lines and wrinkles while helping to maintain the skin’s firmness. The skin roughness reduced by 16.5% and 25.1% statistically significant results versus initial time after 1 and 4 weeks with Seacode™- respectively, which are visible in the way it improved lipstick lines, as shown the dermatological evaluation.Thanks to its anti-wrinkle effects, Seacode™ is highly recommended for all ages and skin types in formulations which are directed at rejuvenating skin.

Method of Application
Spritz onto moistened skin for easiest application and to help the serum last as long as possible. By spritzing your face first with spring water, hydrosol or a hydrating mist you will find the serum glides on easily without tugging and pulling on the skin. This is especially noticeable with the application of creams.
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
Hydrosols - Take out 1/2 oz to 1 oz in a separate spray bottle from your original container and keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator!
Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate ALL carrier oils, they will solidify in some cases. This is FINE all you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it will be liquid again!

Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Oils - These should always be refrigerated.

Ceramide Complex with aging, skin loses its youthful moisture, suppleness, and smoothness, thanks to the loss of essential ceramide molecules. Skin ceramides make up 50% of the lipids in the extracellular "cement" that binds together protective cells in the outermost skin layer, the stratum corneum. The loss of skin ceramides renders aging skin permeable to moisture, leaving skin dry, rough, and itchy; ceramide loss is also a major contributor to wrinkles.
