Ever wonder why most Korean women (even men) have this poreless, glass-looking skin? You can blame genetics for that, but keeping it smooth and flawless is something you can wonder about.
It’s no surprise that Korea is one of the leading countries in producing skincare products. Korean cosmetics and skincare companies continue to develop ingredients in order to address skin problems. One such solution ingredient that is gaining popularity across the beauty industry is Galactomyces. Galactomyces can be found in many Korean and Japanese products mainly because of their ability to fight bacteria and delay skin aging. Keep on reading as we unveil the wonders this ingredient can do to your skin.
What is Galactomyces
Galactomyces is a genus of fungi from a fermented sake that originated in Japan and is now being widely used in skincare. The filtration process leaves it free from bacteria and other impurities. Galactomyces are packed with amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. The discovery was accidental when visitors noticed that the old workers’ hands were wrinkle-free, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Let’s dive deeper into the reasons why you should try Galactomyces and why it's good for your skin.
A study conducted in 2015 shows that using products that contain galactomyces can reduce the size of a pore by 15.66%. Having smaller pores means fewer chances of getting acne and other common skin problems.
Help With Oily Skin
Galactomyces can help to control the production of excessive oil and lead to much smoother skin.
It Brightens Dark Spots
An essence infused with 10% galactomyces can help brighten the skin according to a 2014 study. Results show that it can decrease melanin production by 55% and reduce the appearance of dark spots by up to 60% in just 16 days.
Keeps Your Skin Hydrated
Another study conducted in Japan found that galactomyces can help strengthen the skin’s barrier against toxins and at the same time keep the skin’s moisture all day.
Helps With Breakouts
By minimizing the size of the pores and reducing the sebum production, the ingredient also helps in reducing the chances of getting pimples and acne.
Revitalizes The Skin
With galactomyces’ capabilities, it can result in having an even skin tone that’s also bright and nourished. Galactomyces can definitely provide the healthy skin you have been aiming for.
Note: Some people might be allergic to fungi and using fungus-based products may worsen the skin’s condition, especially if they are suffering from fungal acne. The best way to check if galactomyces is safe to use for your skin is to try a small amount and apply it on your hand.
