By now, you must have heard of the legends of fermented wheat, or read about Korean celebrities attributing a kimchi diet to their flawless complexion. So what exactly is fermentation and how does it benefit your skin?
Easier absorption into the skin
Fermentation is a natural metabolic process that breaks down ingredients’ molecular structures into smaller particles. This makes it easier for nutrients to be absorbed through skin’s multiple layers. As a result, fermented ingredients are highly effective in providing the skin with optimum nutrition and vitality.
Higher concentration of nutrients
The process of fermentation not only preserves, but also produces super-concentrated antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, probiotics, Omega-3 and beneficial enzymes as a by-product of its chemical process. These resulting nutrients are essential to the skin’s renewal mechanisms to keep skin concerns at bay.
Furthermore, common methods of extracting skincare ingredients - such as heating - can destroy some of the nutrients presence in the ingredient. Therefore, the same ingredients, extracted with or without fermentation can have greatly differing levels of potency.
Great for sensitive skin
What’s more, fermentation filters out impurities that might irritate skin. Just like fermented food can help to kill the bacteria in our gut, fermented skincare ingredients can effectively kill the bacteria on the skin to reveal spotless glowing complexion without exposing the skin to harsh chemicals.
And of course, being a natural preservation method, it is more beneficial to the skin than using chemical preservatives that might cause sensitivity or inflammation. That’s why fermentation skincare products are excellent for people with sensitive or very dry skin.
