Ingredient Highlight: Sea Whip Extract
What is Sea Whip Extract?
Sea Whip Extract is a natural ingredient from the marine organism Pseudopterogoria Elisabethae. Sea Whip extract is known as an extremophile; extremophiles are organisms that live in very extreme environments and can survive conditions that would kill most other organisms; for example high temperatures or high concentrations of salt in water. A renewable resource usually harvested from the Caribbean Sea, this extract is safe, effective, environmentally friendly and one of our favorite healing ingredients here at Facial Lounge!
