Saccharomyces Copper Ferment
There is very little scientific information on Saccharomyces Lysate, although it is known to be an extract of yeast fermented in the presence of copper ions that may have antioxidant properties. The Cosmetics Database lists it as a skin-conditioning agent. According to CosmeticsCop.com, citing the Global Cosmetic Industry journal, Saccharomyces Lysate is a group of fungi that ferment sugars, and a source of beta-glucan, which is a good antioxidant. Live yeast-cell derivatives have been shown to stimulate wound healing, but "much of what is known about yeast’s effects for skin is theoretical, and concerns yeast’s tissue-repair and protective properties."
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
The Cosmetics Database finds Saccharomyces Lysate to be a low hazard ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products, although it does note organ system toxicity and enhanced absorption concerns, but states that there is limited evidence of respiratory toxicity. No other studies were found that reported adverse side effects.
