Why Kelp?

The main causes of hair and skin damage are poor nutrition and chronic illness, along with the use of harsh and synthetic chemicals. Kelp is a rich source of iodine and contains over 50 essential nutrients which include minerals calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron, vitamins A, B complex, K, and amino acids lysine, histidine, and glutamic acid. Kelp's richness is beneficial to healthy skin and hair.

Kelp Benefits for Hair & Scalp

Certain nutrients in kelp, such as iron and the essential amino acid, l-lysine, directly affect hair growth. Deficiencies in iron and l-lysine can impact hair loss in otherwise healthy individuals.

Zinc is a trace mineral that is crucial to the maintenance of normal body functioning. It also plays a role in cell reproduction, vitamin absorption and protein synthesis. Hair is made of protein, and if your body isn't making enough of it, you will see it in your brittle or thin hair. Applying zinc directly to the cuticle via BISH hair care products will introduce zinc directly to the follicle, where hair proteins are made.

One reason for hair loss is the calcification of the hair follicle. This can be caused by many things such as disease, the ageing process or a vitamin deficiency. Magnesium blocks the calcification process and introducing magnesium to the hair and scalp with BISH hair care products may slow the process of hair loss.

Kelp Benefits to the Skin & Scalp

Polygalactosides react with the protective outer surface of the skin and the Ion-ion interaction form a protective moisturizing complex, while the fucose polymers are hygroscopic and act as hydrating agents and the ursolic acid can help form a protective barrier on the skin.

They contain abundant non-essential and essential amino acids such as proline, glycine and lysine - all of these, which are found in the elastic fibers of the skin as well. These ingredients are helpful for the skin's elasticity by increasing hydration and thereby maintaining and improving the skin's elasticity. Kelp extract is a natural anti-aging ingredient.

The mineral salts and especially iodine stimulate the general metabolism and cause an increase in the osmotic exchanges thus bringing about elimination of the excess fluids. This phenomenon is made use of in the treatment of cellulite and obesity.

The Kelp extracts added to BISH products provide all of these benefits with topical application to the hair, skin and scalp.
