INCI: Saccharomyces copper ferment

What is Saccharomyces copper ferment?

Saccharomyces copper ferment is a skincare ingredient obtained from the fermentation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or brewer's yeast, in the presence of copper ions. This ingredient has gained popularity in recent years due to its multiple benefits for the skin. In this section, we will explore the various uses and benefits of Saccharomyces copper ferment. For more information please see: SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE

Use & Benefits:

Antioxidant Properties: Saccharomyces copper ferment has antioxidant properties due to its high copper content. Copper is an essential trace mineral that plays a vital role in the body's antioxidant defense system. Copper ions neutralize free radicals, which are harmful molecules that damage skin cells, causing premature aging, and other skin problems.

Anti-inflammatory Properties: Saccharomyces copper ferment has been found to have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is a natural response of the body to harmful stimuli, but when it becomes chronic, it can lead to skin damage and aging. The copper ions in Saccharomyces copper ferment help to reduce inflammation by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Skin Firming & Tightening: Saccharomyces copper ferment can improve skin firmness and elasticity. Copper plays a vital role in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin health. These proteins give the skin its firmness and elasticity, and as we age, their production decreases, leading to sagging skin. Saccharomyces copper ferment helps to boost collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

Moisturizing: Saccharomyces copper ferment helps to improve skin hydration levels. Copper ions help to maintain the skin's natural moisture barrier by stimulating the production of ceramides, which are essential lipids that help to retain moisture in the skin. This ingredient also helps to increase skin thickness and density, resulting in plumper, more hydrated skin.

Brightening & Even-Toning: Saccharomyces copper ferment has been found to have skin brightening and even-toning properties. Copper ions help to inhibit the production of melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation. By reducing melanin production, Saccharomyces copper ferment helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, resulting in brighter, more even-toned skin.
