Acne is caused by an over-production of sebum, which is often the result hormonal disruptions such as puberty, monthly menstruation, pregnancy or menopause. In addition stress can alter hormonal balances in the body and lead to increased sebum production.
Acne is arises when the sebum reaches the surface of the skin and thickens as it comes into contact with oxygen, leading to pore blockages which, if left blocked, can lead to bacterial infection and inflammation (spots).
What is our Yeast Face Masque?
The skin benefits brewer’s yeast were discovered in ancientEgyptover 4,000 years ago. But more recently studies have confirmed that brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cereviseae) can help combat bacteria that causes acne while maintaining a balanced pH level in the skin.
Brewer’s yeast contains a natural potent anti-bacterial agent called nicotinic acid that ward’s off bacteria that causes acne without drying the skin by stripping it of its natural oils.
Active brewer’s yeast cells multiply on contact with the skin meaning the surface of the skin is soon populated by the anti-bacterial agents in the yeast leaving no opportunity for acne-causing bacteria to multiply and spread.
Yeast Face Masque contains concentrated levels of active young brewer’s yeast cells, which multiply even faster than normal yeast cells, so the masque begins cultivating quickly on your skin as soon as it is applied.
Yeast Face Masque has incorporated an extract of brewer’s yeast into a natural face masque.Yeast Face Masque also contains pure coconut oil, which is rich in lauric acid and is known for its antibacterial effect.
What’s the evidence that Yeast Face Masque works?
A published double blind placebo controlled study involving 139 patients and carried out recently at the university of Munich by professors Weber G, Adamczyk and A, Freytag found that a skin cream containing live brewer’s yeast was highly effective over a 5-month period compared to a placebo treatment for the treatment of acne. 80% of those using the brewer’s yeast preparation for their acne saw their skin improved significantly during the 5-month period.
