Alginate's main ingredient is kelp, a form of seaweed, so it’s completely safe to use on your skin! All BabyRice alginate is “dental grade”, meaning it can be used by dentists to make moulds in people's mouths. What’s more, our alginate conforms to British Safety Standards BS 4269 Pt.2:1991 and ISO 1563:1990.
