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 their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months. Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should continually be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
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 for our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
direct light and in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid Serums or Salicylic Acid Serums, as they can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens, you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items That Require Refrigeration and/or Kept in the Dark
Hydrosols - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - generally, you can refrigerate all carrier oils, although some very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out, warm it up at room temperature and it should liquefy. If not, set the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shake the bottle, which will hopefully turn into a liquid.
^There are some oils with a super long shelf life, like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil.
Refrigeration is not necessary, but it surely won't hurt.
Essential Oils - essential oils are best stored in a cool, dark place.
Co2 Extracts - these should continually be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare' butters. You can remove what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - all herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and dry location.
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - these are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls the constituents from each herb—root, trunk, leaves, and flowers.
Extracts have a shelf life of 3-5 years. They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Raw Ingredients - i.e., Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc. will all have a different shelf life.

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.
