Haeckels are a brand that I have been stalking on instagram for a long time, watching their constant improvement on incredible packaging I've never seen before as well as stunning products that I know you will love as much as I do!
Now I have room in our new warehouse I am so proud to be a stockist of Haeckels and their range, inspired by Nature, packaged by nature and bringing a natural elegance to everything they create!
HAECKELS KELP BIOFERMENT
Kelp-derived Nutrient & Hydration support for your skin and scalp. Also a fantastic matt finish moisturiser.
This Kelp Bioferment is rich in fucoidan, carrageenan and algin, it also provides minerals like iodine, copper, molybdate, magnesium, and others required as cofactors in enzymatic reactions of lipid metabolism and energy conversion.
This is somewhat a miracle product of nature, the below list is just a fraction of its uses and benefits.
1. Chlorophyll-helps detoxify
2. Essential fatty acids-improve skin elasticity
3. Carbohydrates-stimulate the skin’s ability to heal
4 . Vitamin A-an antioxidant, normalizes skin cells
5. Protein/amino acids-building blocks of cells, skin conditioners
The Bioferment is made using Laminaria as substrate for fermentation. Laminaria grows off reef and along the Thanet coast about a mile out to sea. We enrich the bioferment with extra fucoxanthin and fucoidans, also extracted from Laminaria.
Fucoxanthin is a pigment present in Phaeophyta (brown algae) that may protect skin from photo-aging caused by UV.
Fucoidans are sulfated polysaccharides with structures that depend on the plant source and growing conditions. Applied to the skin, fucoidan will increase the density of collagen bundles, decrease activity of proteases (enzymes that break down dermal proteins), increase scavenging of free radicals, and increase cell proliferation. These effects would be mediated through increased expression of ß1-integrin and may also help with wound healing and act as a anti inflammatory.
HOW TO USE
Apply a few drops to face morning and evening before application of creams. If applying to scalp use after conditioner and leave in to dry naturally.

"Honesty is what drives Haeckels forward. It’s the transparency of our journey that allows our community and collaborators to connect with us. We are a self-financed tiny giant. Every member of our team plays multiple roles – formulating, making, designing, photographing, programming, planning and installing – leading to the impression of a company many times our actual size.
This wasn’t planned: it arose from a desire to share Haeckels with other people; to enthuse them about the health-giving properties of the sea; to raise awareness about natural products that are every bit as effective as chemical-derived alternatives.
Seaweed hydrates; it’s rich with valuable vitamins, minerals and amino acids; it’s anti-bacterial, skin rebuilding and anti-inflammatory; it’s all-natural, and all around us. Under licence, we harvest it by hand from the beach just steps away from our shop.
We live and learn together. Our affiliated lab carries out full assessment and stability tests, but before that our products go through an honest, real-world formulation trial. We use them ourselves, comparing, collaborating and re-examining until we discover the perfect solution.
Sharing extends to everything we do, including our concerns not only for our local coastline but oceans across the globe. Sustainability has always been part of Haeckels’ philosophy and, as we’ve developed as a brand, it has only become more and more entwined with what we do; as we branch out into new territories, we strive to implement the same care we have in our home town of Margate, and raise the same awareness about the fragility and value of the ocean."
