WHAT IS GALACTOMYCES?
Guess what the most popular skincare ingredient in Korea is! GALACTOMYCES!
A lot of Japanese and Korean skincare products contain Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF; PITERA), a byproduct of fermented sake. A few decades ago, Galactomyces was discovered accidentally at a sake brewery in Japan. Researchers at a skincare company found that the brewers’ hands were smooth and wrinkle-free compared to their face (their face was aging). After years of research, they finally invented Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF)!
Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate is a powerful antioxidant ingredient, extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, organic acids, yeast peptides and so on (all the beneficial compounds for the skin). Because the filtrate of fermentation directly reacts to the skin, it helps brighten up skin tone and texture when using it for a long period. It also holds water molecules in the deep layers of the skin to provide long-lasting hydration with moisture-locking capabilities. Galactomyces is a skin-balancing ingredient that helps revitalize and nourish the skin while improving the appearance of the skin, which means anti-aging. It protects the skin from harmful factors that can wreck the skin and helps remove impurities, toxins, and pollutants. Most importantly, almost every skin type (even for oily and acne-prone skin type) can benefit from using Galactomyces skincare products.
■ Reduce sebum production
: It reduces the size of pores and controls over-active sebum production. Amino acids, produced during the fermentation process, gently remove dead skin cells.
■ Improve uneven skin tone/texture
: Galactomyces enhances skin tone and improves water-oil balance to brighten the dull-looking skin. It provides long-lasting hydration for smoother skin texture.
■ Deeply hydrate the skin
: Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate deeply hydrates the skin without water to bring back the skin’s natural regeneration ability. Even oily and sensitive skin (acne-prone) can use Galactomyces products.
■ Relieve skin troubles
: It helps with clogged pores to relieve trouble scars by controlling sebum production and removing dead skin cells.
★ If your skin doesn’t like Galactomyces, it can lead to allergic reaction or itchiness.
★ For the first-time users, small rashes can occur while eliminating toxins and pollutants from your skin.
★ No for fungal acne: it may worsen the fungal acne leading to more redness or breakouts.
★ Before moving on to the Galactomyces skincare products, be sure to do a small patch test to figure out that your skin would like it.
