TeraCeutic Ferment is a 100% natural product from the fermentation of brewer’s yeast and grape extract. It contains natural organic acids, including alpha- and beta- hydroxy acids (AHA and BHA) from the fruit. Arginine is added to restore skin amino acids while reducing irritation.
In a 6 week clinical study on 27 female volunteers age 19 – 45, a water-based serum containing 12% TeraCeutic Ferment was applied nightly. Skin smoothness, acne reduction, pore reduction, and overall impression of gentleness were assessed at 1, 3, and 6 week time points via instrumentation and self-assessment questionnaire. After just one week, a significant improvement in texture, acne, and pores was observed and characterized by Bio3D Structured Light and BioBlue Light scanners. A continued improvement was seen at 3 and 6 weeks and perception of gentleness was maintained.
Gel peels containing 7.5 wt.% active were applied to the forearm of five female subjects aged 40-50.
The area was rubbed for 30 s, rinsed, and patted dry. Skin surface scaliness was determined by D-Squame analysis before treatment and also 15 minutes after rinsing off.
Chemical procesing (e.g. bleaching), causes hair to become less elastic and break more easily. Therefore, bleached hair requires more force to bend compared to undamaged hair. After treating bleached hair fibers with TeraCeutic Ferment at 2.5% only once, a 21% recovery of natural bounce was observed. All measurements were taken at 20°C, 65% humidity, using the system Dia-Stron. n=20 fibers, Caucasian hair.
