What is it?
Saccharomyces lysate extract is a type of yeast used in cosmetics and skin care products for its ability to improve absorption, add beneficial nutrients, decrease irritation, and optimize cellular oxygen consumption.
Saccharomyces is a fungi made of many species of yeast and was originally used for brewing beer.
Thereafter, South Korea came up with a trend of using it to create fermented skin care products.
Saccharomyces Lysate Extract in Skincare
In skincare products, microorganisms like bacteria or yeast release enzymes that break down other ingredients into smaller molecules.
As active ingredients in skincare are too large to penetrate into the skin, so breaking it down will help saccharomyces lysate extract facilitate the absorption of these ingredients. This results in better absorption which brings better results.
Fermentation also increases the nutrient density, making the product's ingredients more powerful.
Fermentation process produces amino acids and peptides which helps to stimulate the skin’s cellular renewal.
