Saccharomyces ferment is a water-like substance made from fermenting and filtering yeast from the genus Saccharomyces. The benefits of fermented ingredients in skin care is similar to the benefits provided by fermented foods, which aid in the absorption and digestion of the nutrients you consume. In skin care products, microorganisms like Saccharomyces release enzymes that break down other ingredients into smaller molecules. Active ingredients in skin care products are often too large to penetrate deeply into the skin, so by breaking them down into smaller molecules, Saccharomyces ferment facilitates the absorption of these ingredients. Better absorption leads to better results.
Saccharomyces ferment is also naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and beta glucan, which all help to nourish and protect the skin. Beta glucan provides soothing properties and is an excellent ingredient for improving the look of redness and other signs of sensitive skin. In addition, fermented ingredients reduce the risk of skin irritation by neutralizing toxic substances, such as heavy metals and pesticides that may be present in trace amounts. By neutralizing toxins, saccharomyces ferment makes the product safer, more effective, and better tolerated for sensitive skin types.
