The huge popularity of fermented foods in recent months has led to an increased interest in the nutritional benefits of fermented products, particularly in relation to skincare.


What are fermented foods?
Fermented foods have been around for centuries and are particularly well known for their outstanding nutritional benefits. Kimchi, Sauerkraut, Miso, Kambucha and Kefir are a particularly rich source of vital nutrients such as Vitamins B, K2 and probiotics. They help optimise the immune system and also aid the body’s natural detoxification process. The beneficial bacteria in these foods are highly potent detoxifiers, capable of drawing out a wide range of toxins.


How does my skin benefit from fermented ingredients?
During the fermentation process, ingredients are slowly processed over a period of several weeks in a controlled, oxygen-free environment. This not only preserves the ingredients, but allows for harmful bacteria to be removed, and particles are broken down making them more bio-available. This means that essential nutrients, minerals and actives can be more easily absorbed deep into the skin and used to hydrate, nourish and repair, producing optimum results.


Where can I find them?
Fermented minerals such as Zinc, Magnesium, Copper and Iron can be found in our Renaissance Hand & Body Cream. This luxuriously hydrating daily hand and body treatment is packed with the very best nutrients and bio-actives to soften, nourish, rejuvenate and stimulate cell renewal.

03 Stressed Yeast Lysate increases cell respiration and the skin’s energy to stimulate new tissue growth, repair, regenerate and protect DNA. It  can be found in our Eye Wonder, Get Up & Glow and Nutri-Active Day Cream.
