Soy Amino Acids

While Soy Amino Acids can have many uses in skincare, here they combine with Yeast Ferment Extract to form a non-hydroxy acid exfoliating agent. It’s created by biofermenting a proprietary strain of Saccharomyces cervesiae yeast grown on soy amino acids. This biotechnology-created yeast oligopeptide resurfaces skin efficiently without causing irritation. Rather than exfoliating cells indesriminately (like AHAs and BHA), this gentle skin renewing agent optimizes the body’s natural exfoliation systems.

Skin is constantly shedding excess dead skin cells, but sometimes this doesn’t happen at an ideal rate. This cutting-edge oligopeptide actively refines and restores visible skin texture and radiance safely. Studies from the manufacturer show equivalent exfoliation results to glycolic acid without the irritation.1 An independent clinical study proved the substantial anti-wrinkle and skin brightening effectiveness after 14 and 28 days of treatment.
