The word "yeast” comes from the Old English word "gyst”, and from the Indo European root word "yes”, meaning boil, bubble or foam. Yeast is probably one of the earliest domesticated microorganisms. Yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is the most useful type of yeast and has been used in baking and brewing since ancient times. It’s not known when this type of yeast was first used to bake bread but records indicate it being done by the ancient Egyptians. Often called "nutritional or brewing yeast”, Saccharomyces cerevisiae has become quite popular among nutrition enthusiasts for its sugar and gluten free properties and is often included in vegans diets’ as a supplement or flavor enhancer. Nutritional yeast is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals while also being low in fat and sodium. This type of yeast plays an important role in the function, growth and reproduction of cells.
SCIENCE & BENEFITS Yeast extract started to be used in the cosmetic industry because of its compatibility with the skin as well its powerful anti-ageing properties. To produce the yeast extract, yeast proteins are broken down into a mix of smaller protein parts. This special mix provides an extract with unique properties. These properties enhance its effectiveness when used in skin and hair care. Niacinamide is the key component of yeast that promotes skin repair and protection while also working as a conditioning agent thus preventing a dry and dull skin. A deficiency of this vitamin can cause the skin to be inflamed and appear blotchy. When topically applied it is known to contain anti-inflammatory properties as well as improving the appearance of aged skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to improve skins elasticity and tone, enhance barrier function, minimize the appearance of discolorations and revive the skin to prevent a dry look. FSS Yeast Extract Plus PF is a water soluble and easy, natural way to incorporate the benefits of niacinamide into personal care applications.
