Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate

Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate is manufactured using fermentation biotechnology in which yeast is fed a nutrient media essential for the development of Baker's yeast. During the cellular growth phase of the yeast, a sublethal dose of ozone is applied to the yeast generated via a commercial ozonator.

The ozone is applied for a specific duration of time while maintaining a viable cell count in the fermentation process. Upon completion of the ozone application, the yeast cells are then lysed to break open the cellular membrane, and the key constituents of the interior of the cell, including material from the cytoplasm and the nuclear materials, are isolated.

Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate is a yeast extract that offers one of the first, scientifically designed, topically applied defenses against ozone, which is rapidly becoming a well-recognized threat against skin health, aging, and well-being.

In vitro studies confirm that Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate is effective at protecting fragile cellular nucleic acids, including nuclear and mitochondrial DNA and RNA, and skin lipids, critical for the proper functioning of the skin’s lipid structure, from the detrimental effects of ozone. In vitro studies also confirm that Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate prevents the formation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts as effectively as green tea and vitamin C.

In vivo clinical studies substantiate the use of Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate as an active affording anti-wrinkle, skin firming claims as well as reducing trans-epidermal water loss and enhancing skin moisturization, and reducing AGE formation. Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate allows a formulator to literally “dial in” a factor of ozone protection (OPF) into their product depending on anticipated exposure times that the consumer may need the protection.

Ozonized Saccharomyces Ferment Lysate Filtrate can help assure the consumer that they are receiving steps towards proper care and safeguards for the skin from harmful effects of the environment; it truly is the pollution solution!

About Ozone

Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive form of molecular oxygen in which normal molecular oxygen combines with highly reactive oxygen radicals to form transitory, but somewhat stable molecules containing three oxygen atoms. Sources for ozone can be completely natural such as the generation of ozone due to lightning strikes or the formation of ozone in the upper atmosphere through the reaction of high-energy solar plasma with oxygen in the troposphere.

However, ozone can also be generated from more manmade sources including, in particular, urban smog, and many cities actually monitor urban ozone levels as an indicator of smog. Because ozone is a key component of human-produced smog, it has been studied extensively for its respiratory health effects, particularly for people prone to asthma and people living in urban populations.

More recently, it has been recognized that ozone has detrimental effects on the skin. In particular, it has been established that ozone, while it can only penetrate a few microns into the stratum corneum, will almost instantly react with vitamin C and vitamin E reservoirs in the skin, rapidly depleting these important antioxidants. In addition, it has been shown that ozone will also rapidly convert skin and cellular lipids into lipid peroxides that lead ultimately to membrane and skin degradation.

Studies have also demonstrated that ozone can oxidize important proteins and nucleic acids. On the other hand, ozone is also known as a safer alternative to chemicals in regards to disinfectant properties, sanitizing or purifying everything from medical equipment to food, water, and even air! Topical ozone skin treatments have reached popularity, touting to promote exfoliation and skin whitening.

The theory is that if ozone was applied to the growing microorganisms, a ‘stress’ would be created on the yeast such that the yeast would need to respond with protective agents to help it survive against the stress. It was based on this theory, that Biodynes® O3 was developed, using the influence of ozone to create an anti-aging active for both hair and skin.
