Radish root ferment filtrate (Leucunostoc)
Any product that contains water is going to require some kind of preservative (if you’ve ever left a cup of tea out for a few days, you know why). Distilled products like alcohol and witch hazel can do the trick in the right concentrations, but aren’t ideal for all formulations. For things like creams and emulsions, we use a probiotic called Leuconostoc, which is derived from fermented radishes (it's why kimchi doesn’t go bad). It also complements your skin's natural microbiome. Double win!
