Is Saccharomyces Ferment a magical ingredient for natural deodorants?

We get a lot of questions about our formulations and ingredients, but one ingredient probably gets more questions than any other: “What the heck is Saccharomyces Ferment?” It’s a good question. Why would a by-product of yeast fermentation be in my deodorant?

Saccharomyces Ferment is derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a species of yeast commonly used in the production of bread and alcoholic beverages. This ingredient is packed with enzymes and nutrients, which not only nourish the skin but also have antimicrobial and antifungal properties. These properties make it an excellent addition to natural deodorants, as it helps neutralize odor-causing bacteria while maintaining a healthy skin microbiome.

Another huge advantage of Saccharomyces Ferment is its ability to act as a natural deodorizing agent. It does this by breaking down the compounds responsible for producing unpleasant odors, such as ammonia and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This enzymatic action ensures that the deodorant remains effective throughout the day, keeping you feeling fresh and confident—which is the whole point of deodorant, right?

Saccharomyces Ferment was included to work in combination with a few other powerful ingredients. Butylene Glycol, Propanediol and Propylene Glycol serve as humectants, helping to retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated. Meanwhile, the Sodium Stearate, Steareth-2 and Tapioca Starch combine to create an easy-to apply consistency that is stable over time.

Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, and Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Extract offer additional skin-soothing and conditioning benefits. Hydrated Silica (Diatomaceous Earth) contributes to the product's efficacy by absorbing excess moisture and keeping your underarm area dry. Phenoxyethanol and Potassium Sorbate helps ensure that the product stays fresh, free of harmful bacteria, and maintains its quality over time.
Then, of course, we have our fine fragrance formulas which serve to help you smell fantastic all day long, adding a little luxury to your deo game.

So, there you have it. Despite the strange-sounding name, Saccharomyces Ferment is a powerful, natural ingredient that works in synergy with the other components in our deodorant formula. The resulting deodorant is a highly effective formula that not only combats odor and keeps you feeling fresh all day but also allows you to match your deo scent with your favorite fine fragrance. Discover the magic of Saccharomyces Ferment and embrace the world of natural, luxurious deodorants.
