Lemon Peel Bioferment G
As of June 2020, we have switched to a paraben-free version of Lemon Peel Bioferment. The new Lemon Peel Bioferment G is preservative-free.
Optimal skin lightening ingredients for cosmetic products will inhibit melanogenesis by tyrosinase inhibition and be of plant or natural origin. Lemon Peel Bioferment G is ideally suited to meet these requirements. It should be considered for use in skin lightening products and anti-age skin care products to ameliorate age spots and irregular skin pigmentation.
Lemon Peel Bioferment G is the result of macerating whole lemon fruit and incubating it with Lactobacillus lacti (the same bacteria used to produce many fermented food products like cheese and sour cream). This ferment is then further processed to remove the potential allergens, citral and geraniol. The resulting ferment is said to have both anti-tyrosinase and antioxidant activity.
- Skin lightener
