Mineral Ferment


Mel-Co® Handcrafted from nature

According to Linus Pauling, "You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency."

Mineral ferments are obtained by fermentation of organisms in the presence of mineral ions. Mineral ferments prepared at MeL-Co® are sold under the trade name ProElement®, and are extracts of yeast fermentation in the presence of various mineral ions. Common minerals include copper, magnesium, manganese, and zinc. The INCI name for our ProElement® products is Saccharomyces/Mineral Ferment, for example ProElement® Copper has the INCI name Saccharomyces/Copper Ferment.

Minerals are essential for good health. The body utilizes over 80 minerals for maximum function, and evidence of mineral malnutrition can result in problems with our skin and hair. For example, wound healing, oxidative stress, uneven skin pigmentation, lack of hair and skin strength.

Like vitamins, minerals function as cofactors, enabling the body to perform functions including energy production, growth, and healing. All enzyme activities involve minerals for the proper utilization of vitamins and other nutrients.

The topical application of mineral salts is problematic because they do not penetrate the epidermis and do not become bio-available. ProElement® products (Saccharomyces/Mineral Ferments) readily penetrate the skin releasing the minerals for use as enzyme cofactors.

We produce a number of individual ProElement® products and custom ProElement® blends.

Whether your project requires 18 Kg, 200 Kg, or 4,000 Kg of ProElement® products, we have you covered. Contact us and see if we can produce a ProElement® for you.
