Kombucha, kimchi and other fermented foods are all the rage these days. It’s thought the fermentation process enhances health by creating more nutrient dense foods and boosting beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Now there’s word from Korea that the beauty world is looking into fermentation to create breakthrough skin care products. One study found that fermented red ginseng had greater concentrations of antioxidants compared to non-fermented ginseng. It had other cosmeceutical benefits too:
Fermented red ginseng (FRG) had dramatically improved bioavailability compared to RG, as indicated by skin permeation, intestinal permeability, and ginsenoside levels in the blood.
It’s important to stress that opinions differ on the efficacy of fermented cosmeceutical products. Not all dermatologists are convinced that ‘kombucha for the skin’ is the way forward.
But there is great interest in Korea, which so often leads the way in skin care. We’ll be keeping a close eye on what emerges.
