What is Fulvic Acid?
Fulvic acid is a derivative of microbial degradation of humic substances (natural organic matter in soil and water). It is an acid created by the action of beneficial microbes, working on decaying plant matter in soil environment with sufficient oxygen.
Fulvic acid has over 70 minerals and is biologically very active. It's molecular weight is low, making it an ideal substance to interact with living cells.
How does fulvic acid help in terms of skin health?
Fulvic acid is one of the finest natural electrolytes. It helps with human enzyme production, hormone structures, and is necessary to utilise vitamins.

Do I need conditioner after using Humic Amino Shampoo?
No. We generally do not recommend using hair conditioner together with Humic shampoo.
Chemicals like sodium lauryl sulphate and Dioxane are two toxic chemicals that are extremely common in supermarket sold shampoos and conditioners. Conditioners coat your hair in chemicals that make your hair looks shiny because they fill in damaged parts of the hair and increase reflective surface area on hair shafts. These chemicals might also coat your scalp and fill in your pores. By using the shampoo alone, your hair will be smooth and soft enough to skip conditioner.
How does Humic Amino Shampoo improve my hair condition?
The only way to improve the health of your hair is to provide your hair with high levels of natural amino acids and supporting nutrients for a certain period of time until it gradually becomes shinier and healthier.
There is 30% of fulvic acid in Humic Amino Shampoo and fulvic acid contains an abundance of natural amino acids. Allow a 28-days cycle for Humic shampoo to work its magic. You will realise conditioner is no longer needed for silky soft hair.
Why do I feel warm when I use Humic balm cleanser?
The glycerine compound in Humic balm cleanser will warm up when you massage the balm on your face. This helps to open up skin pores and ensure all impurities could be removed.
How do I store my Humic products?
Always store your Humic products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. For face mask, ensure the zipper is fully sealed after the packet is opened. You could also leave Humic face mask in the fridge if you prefer the cooling sensation while applying a face mask.
How long does my Humic product last?
All Humic products last for 3 to 5 months depending on the frequency and volume of use. We recommend to finish the products within 5 months after opening to ensure freshness and effectiveness of the products.
Can I really use Humic mask on a daily basis?
Yes. Humic face mask is designed to be used on a daily basis. For normal skin type, just face mask alone would be enough as a night treatment. For dry skin type, apply another layer of Humic essence after removing face mask as an extensive moisture-lock treatment.
