Fermented ingredients are finding their way into personal care - 5 highlighted ingredients

Kimchi, Kombutcha: food or skincare?

Fermentation is the conversion of a carbohydrate such as sugar into an acid or an alcohol. More specifically, fermentation can refer to the use of yeast to change sugar into alcohol or the use of bacteria to create lactic acid in certain foods. Fermentation occurs naturally in many different foods given the right conditions, and people have intentionally made use of it for many thousands of years.

Food fermentations are ancient technologies that harness microorganisms and their enzymes to improve the human diet.

Fermented foods keep better, have enhanced flavours, textures and aromas, and may also possess certain health benefits including superior digestibility.

Fermentation enhances the effectiveness of natural ingredients by improving the quality of active phytochemicals and facilitating easy absorption by skin. It mimics skin cell function to protect and improve skin's metabolism, which is required for healthy skin.

There has been an increase in patent filings related to ferments, and many big brands in the beauty industry have started incorporating ferments into their products as next-generation natural ingredients. These brands will play a major role in creating awareness among beauty enthusiasts regarding the benefits of ferments.
