* Provides nutrients and antioxidants to revitalize skin
* Stimulates collagen production

The naturally occurring process whereby water evaporates through the skin is called transepidermal water loss (TEWL). We don’t want this to happen so we layer the hydrating toner with a moisturizer to seal in the water content. Dehydration affects all skins and is the #1 most common skin condition. It is also the easiest condition to correct. Once a skin becomes dehydrated, other skin conditions develop (impacted pore debris, sluggish cell turnover, rough texture, dull color) and existing skin conditions often become worse. Moisturizers protect your skin against environmental pollution and free radical attack, which leads to aging.

Load skin with Softening Essence and let dry. Warm a dollop of cream between fingertips. Dot onto skin and then massage into dry skin of face, eyes, neck, decollete and back of hands so the organic ingredients can treat your skin without dilution. Use twice daily.

Why Fermented Ingredients are Crucial

Fermentation reduces the chances of skin irritation. Some natural raw ingredients contain toxic substances like heavy metals and pesticides that irritate the skin. The fermentation process neutralizes these substances, making the product safer, more effective, and suitable for sensitive skin types.

Discover the process fermented skin care products go through and why they are some of the best products for seeing fast and amazing results

Fermented ingredients are at the heart of our skin care. But how exactly do they benefit your skin? A few of the fermented ingredients found in cutting-edge products include rice, sea kelp, algae, black soy, olive leaf extract, gotu kola, green tea and ginseng. Some product lines feature different mineral extracts that are fermented in yeast saccharomyces such as zinc, magnesium and copper. After being converted into peptides by the yeast, the yeast is then removed and the mineral peptides can penetrate the skin, for increased product efficacy.

What does fermentation mean for products?

It means adding microorganisms like bacteria to natural ingredients. The microorganisms release enzymes that break down the molecules in the raw material, which then leads to the creation of new substances that benefit your skin.

Generally speaking, there are three benefits to fermentation:

* Fermentation helps skin absorb the product better

Normally, your skin cannot easily absorb the actives in natural ingredients. This is because the molecular size of the actives is too large. But through fermentation, microorganisms break down the molecules into smaller sizes, so your skin can easily absorb the skin-benefiting ingredients.

* Fermentation reduces the chances of skin irritation

Some natural raw ingredients contain toxic substances like heavy metals and pesticides that irritate the skin. The fermentation process neutralizes these substances, making the product safer, more effective, and suitable for sensitive skin types. On top of that, fermentation using yeast can lead to the creation of special substances that prevent the generation of harmful microorganisms, which further reduces the chances of skin damage.

* Fermentation creates new skin-benefiting substances

The fermentation process gives rise to new amino acids, organic acids and antioxidants to help hydrate and nourish the skin. In this way, natural ingredients often used in cosmetics—like milk, vegetables, and herbs—can see an increase in nutrients through fermentation.

These benefits work synergistically with one another to help your skin become healthier overall.

What the fermentation process looks like

Now that we’ve covered the benefits of fermentation, let’s take a closer look at how fermented products are made. Our Sea Rose Softening Essence is a waterless essence that contains 93% fermented ingredients, namely Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Aspergillis Ferment, Camellia Sinensis Leaf, Cladosiphon Okamuranus and Rice Ferment Filtrate, to seriously hydrate skin and bring back elasticity.

After the raw materials pass quality control, black tea is extracted and replaced with hydrating birch juice and bacteria that will start the fermentation process, like Bifidobacterium, Saccharomyces, Aspergillus, and Lactobacillus. It is then put in a dark facility at 86-159 ° F and 70-80% relative humidity to ferment for two to three days. The reason why the fermentation process takes a short time (compared to fermented foods like kimchi, for instance) is because prolonging fermentation can lead to decomposition of the ingredients.

After two to three days of fermentation, it is then filtered and enriched with rice ferment filtrate and preservatives like Ethylhexylglycerin. After another round of filtration, it is then packaged, checked for quality assurance, and then shipped out.

Bottom line:
Using fermented products is an excellent way to hydrate and nourish your skin without the worry of skin irritation (though you should always patch test, just to be sure). The vitamins and antioxidants that are created during the fermentation process can strengthen your skin barrier and improve overall skin health.
