What is the nature of fermentation? What are the advantages?
Academically, fermentation is defined as the process of producing and accumulating a large number of metabolites required for fermentation by large-scale growth and cultivation of microorganisms (or animal and plant cells) to cause chemical and physiological changes. In layman’s terms, fermentation uses the process of converting microbial cells and enzymes into raw materials that are nutritious or have specific effects.
In this process, the product has undergone many amazing changes, resulting in the following fermentation advantages:
The production of new nutrients: through the screening of strains and the control of the fermentation process, microbial cells synthesize, transform or activate some new substances beneficial to the skin, bringing new functional effects.
Enrichment of nutrients: Nutrients can be multiplied and more beneficial for absorption and utilization.
It can increase the extraction rate of active substances: microorganisms secrete extracellular enzymes such as proteases and cellulases during growth and reproduction, promote plant cell rupture, promote the release of active ingredients, and increase the number of active substances obtained.
Easy to absorb: Biomacromolecules (proteins, sugars) that are not easily absorbed are degraded into nano-sized small molecules (polypeptides, amino acids, polysaccharides, etc.), which are more easily absorbed.
More gentle, reduce toxic side effects: microbial cells can decompose harmful substances, effectively reducing or eliminating unsafe factors.
Good formula sensation: feels affinity and absorbs better when applied, refreshing and moisturizing after use.
With so many innate advantages, it is no wonder that fermented raw materials in cosmetics are so popular. And for the characteristics of human skin, you can choose the best fermentation process to get the best fermentation materials with specific effects. Moreover, the fermented raw materials are natural, mild, and low-stimulus, providing a new feeling for the innovation of cosmetics formula and customer experience, naturally fermented skincare products, recalling the new vitality of the skin.
Stanford Chemicals has 16 years of raw material fermentation history, completed the construction of fermentation platform, and successively developed a variety of fermentation raw materials such as sodium hyaluronate, and on this basis, re-innovation of raw materials, developed ultra-low molecular weight cut oligomeric transparent Sodium phosphate miniHA, double moisturizing acetylated sodium hyaluronate, oil-dispersed hyaluronic acid Hyacolor for makeup, high-intensity sodium hyaluronate cationHA for care products.
