Yeast Ferment Extract

While there are many different yeast ferments and extracts used in skincare, this one combines with Soy Amino Acids to form a gentle, non-hydroxyacid 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 indiscriminately (like AHAs and BHA), this intelligent 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.
