Yeast extract has endless benefits such as being hydrating, anti oxidizing, anti-aging, collagen-boosting and brightening. It is consequently used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, eczema and hyperpigmentation.
Yeast is rich in minerals, proteins and vitamins. The great amount of Vitamin B contained in yeast maintains your skin looking healthy and youthful since it provides sufficient energy for our skin cells to replicate. The high concentration of antioxidants in yeast, such as beta-glucan, enables it to neutralize harmful free-radicals, present in the environment, to soothe and calm the skin. Yeast also combats pigmentation and age spots because it is capable of regulating the production of the enzyme tyrosinase, key enzyme in melanin production.
