Natural Ingredients: Seaweed Kelp

Earth Smart Solutions products are formulated using naturally occurring ingredients and sustainable sources including macro and micro nutrients, enzymes, carbohydrates and amino acids.

One of the naturally occurring ingredients that we use in many of our formulations is seaweed kelp.

Ocean Organics is one of the suppliers which we source our seaweed from.

In order to truly appreciate the amazing benefits of seaweed, you need to learn about their lives as one of the hardiest plants on earth.

"Ocean Organics processes a variety of cold-water North Atlantic seaweeds — the hardiest plants on earth. The daily life cycle of these seaweeds is intensely stressful.


As the tides ebb and flow, they are alternately, at low tide, completely exposed on the rocks to which they’re attached, and at high tide, completely submerged in salt water.


In the summer they withstand air temperatures that exceed 100º F when exposed, then quickly tolerate frigid water temperatures when submerged.

In winter, air temperatures plunge below -10º F, and water temperatures dip below freezing.

They go through these cycles twice a day every day of their lives. Through these extremes, these seaweeds manage to feed themselves entirely through their foliage.

The naturally-occurring carbohydrates, polysaccharides, organic acids, amino acids, macro- and micronutrients which play key roles in boosting their stress tolerance and survival also contribute to the stress management and survival potential of plants treated with our products."

Ocean Organics uses innovative and sustainable techniques to produce seaweed-based products that are richer than others but with fewer solids and inert ingredients. The result: more beneficial ingredients for superior plant health and stress tolerance, and lower viscosity for easy mixing and application.

Seaweed absorbs nutrients directly from the ocean, making them "an incredibly rich source of every nutrient known to contribute to plant growth and health — all in perfect balance." (Source: Ocean Organics)
