To understand the benefits that fermented ingredients can bring, we first have to understand the process of fermentation. Fermentation alters the makeup of natural compounds by breaking them down. The most common example is yeast, which is used in making bread. In fact, many fermented ingredients are already used in skincare products, such as lactic acid, which comes from fermented milk. Through the process of fermenting plant-based ingredients and whole foods, many different postbiotics that are rich in skin-friendly vitamins and acids are produced.
Benefits of Fermented Ingredients in Skincare Products
Did you know that the process of fermentation makes ingredients more potent? The enzymes secreted in the process means that your money actually goes further when you purchase skincare products that contain fermented ingredients. With more powerful ingredients, you can expect it to have a stronger effect on your skin. Another benefit of fermented ingredients is that they are more easily absorbed by your skin. As the ingredients are broken down into smaller molecules during the process, this increases their bioavailability.
In addition, the presence of fermented ingredients can work as a natural preservative in skincare. Some products of fermentation, such as lactic acid and vinegar, are created in a low pH environment. This helps to prevent the growth of pathogenic bacteria, which results in a serum or cream going off. However, we suggest that you always check the expiration date and follow the recommended use by date.

If you have sensitive skin, you may have struggled to find skincare products that do not irritate your skin.
