Why Fermented Collagen is the Ingredient Your Skin Has Been Craving

The era of harsh cleansers and abrasive scrubs is finally over. We are now embracing the age of gentle, reparative skincare, and our skin couldn't be happier.  In our pursuit to undo past skin care missteps, fermented skin care is emerging as the all-around solution for achieving healthy skin.

Sounds intimidating? The concept is actually quite simple. Just like the good bacteria in fermented foods like yogurt and kimchi promote gut health, our skin, with its own protective layer of bacteria, can also benefit from the nourishment of fermented ingredients in skin care.

So, does fermented skin care really work wonders? And how can you experience these benefits yourself? Let us walk you through it:

What Is Fermented Skin Care?

You may have heard of fermented skin care, or perhaps its sisters, ‘probiotic skin care’ and  ‘microbiome skin care.’ These buzzwords all point to the same type of product, with the aim of restoring a healthy balance of bacteria on the skin.

Unlike wine made from yeast-fermented grapes, fermented skin care doesn’t involve burying a toner underground for years. Instead, it simply means processing an ingredient using bacteria or yeast in a lab, breaking it down into a smaller size that the skin can easily absorb.

What to Look for in Fermented Skin Care

When choosing fermented skin care products, it’s important to select ones with the right hardworking ingredients.

In the case of Par Kie’s Super Collagen Moisture Dew, the star fermented component is Lactobacillus/Fermented Collagen, extracted from hydrolyzed marine collagen. This lightweight treatment essence is designed to support microbiome balance and provide a powerful dose of skin-firming free amino acids and peptides. With a skin-friendly pH level of 6, it resembles the naturally mildly acidic pH of our skin, preventing moisture loss.

Meticulously formulated in Japan, it embodies the culmination of extensive research, utilizing high-quality ingredients and refined formulations to maximize efficacy.

Let’s enjoy the benefits of fermented skin care and experience a new level of healthy skin — one that will make you feel prepped and confident with so little effort!

The Benefits of Fermented Ingredients in Skin Care

1. Skin Microbiome Support

The main goal of incorporating fermented ingredients in skin care is to maintain balance in the skin’s microbiome. The term ‘microbiome’ refers to the ecosystem of microorganisms in a specific environment. Our skin’s microbiome plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin barrier’s functions, which include protection against environmental stressors, and irritation like acne and redness.

Although most of us are born with a perfectly healthy and balanced skin microbiome, it can be disrupted by factors such as pollution, diet, stress, and the use of harsh skin care products. Fermented skin care helps to restore balance by reintroducing beneficial microorganisms, essentially rebuilding your skin’s protective barrier.

2. Efficient Ingredient Absorption

Fermented active ingredients in skin care have smaller molecules, allowing them to penetrate deeply into the skin layers. Additionally, the fermentation process concentrates the ingredient, increasing its potency.

As a lightweight liquid essence, the Super Collagen Moisture Dew embodies this benefit. It delivers deep hydration and probiotic goodness without any hassle — no cotton pads required. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types, formulated without fragrance, parabens, and dyes that can cause irritation.

How To Add Fermented Ingredients Into Your Skin Care Routine

An essence like the Super Collagen Moisture Dew should be applied after your cleaners and before any serums or thicker creams. It requires no special preparation or adjustment period. 

After cleansing, simply dispense a few drops onto your palms (as much as you think your skin needs at the moment!) and gently pat it onto your face and neck. Your pores will eagerly drink it up, getting your skin hydrated and prepped the rest of your routine and your day ahead!
