Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate

Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate is a cutting edge, probiotic preservative derived from radishes fermented with leuconostoc kimchii; a lactic acid bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi.

Shown to have amazing antimicrobial benefits, the active 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.
