Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate
Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate is a postbiotic preservative derived from white radishes (raphanus sativus) fermented with leuconostoc kimchii; a lactic acid bacteria traditionally used to make kimchi.
Shown to have antimicrobial benefits, this multifunctional ingredient is a skin-friendly peptide released from leuconostoc kimchii bacteria during the fermentation process. It’s also an effective moisturiser (it’s a peptide, after all!). Plus, it may benefit acne prone skin by gently inhibiting growth of active bacteria at the skin’s surface.
It’s accepted by Ecocert as an ingredient in organic cosmetics and is on the whole foods acceptable premium preservative list.
