What is Fermented Skincare?

Bacteria or yeast, is introduced to a cosmetic in an anaerobic environment (without oxygen) thereby fermenting the raw ingredient. Changes made by fermentation include: boosting efficacy and facilitating skin absorption. In this article, we explore the benefits of bacteria for beauty.

Fermentation is a natural way of breaking down a substance into a simpler substance, making it more powerful. The compounds become more concentrated allowing the skin to more readily accept and absorb them. This process creates supercharged ingredients.

Fermented Skincare products have a powerful active antioxidant function, fighting free radicals and strengthening the hydrolipidic film of the skin, protecting it from external environmental aggressors like pollution, and UV rays.

Lactobacillus Bulgaricus Ferment Filtrate – This is a prebiotic derived from soy and chicory with the process of fermentation yields a cosmetic extract capable of enhancing the overall function of skin cells while increasing the antioxidant activity of Lactobacillus bulgaricus.

The Benefits of Fermentation

  1. Potent – Fermenting a plant extract produces a far more concentrated and therefore more potent cosmetic extract.
  2. Sustainable – Fermentation is a natural process with no additional external resources required to create fermented extracts.
  3. Sensitive – Cosmetic ingredients become less irritating to the skin via the fermentation process, fermented ingredients help to strengthen the skin barrier by supporting the skin’s natural acid mantle barrier function.

Bacteria for beauty the Skin Benefits of Fermented Ingredients

  • Boosting ingredient penetration into the skin
  • Increasing concentration, the fermentation process helps to concentrate an ingredient
  • Prolonged moisturising effects
  • Increased antioxidant activity
  • Improved skin texture has a silkier, and lighter skin feel with less greasiness.

Science Backed

A recent 2020 Study noted: A higher biodiversity in the skin after four weeks of treatment with a topical fermented oil. Research shows the treatment resulted in a more “beneficial” and “younger” microbial community after treatment with fermented oils.
