We’re passionate about the benefits of kombucha, so we’ve started this blog to share ideas, thoughts, articles, recipes and much more!
For some years now, in-the-know top cosmetic companies such as Chanel and Estee Lauder have been using kombucha in their skin renewal formulas.
A 2012 L’Oreal Research & Innovation Study found that kombucha extract was "beneficial to the skin, helping to maintain moisture and elasticity so it appears more even in tone and texture."
As anyone who uses GO! Kombucha’s vinegar (available from our online shop) will know it makes a great toner (tip: soak in a flannel and place over your face covering the forehead down to nostril level and leave for 20 minutes as the acids slough off dead skin cells to reveal radiant new skin beneath).
In America kombucha-related skin renewal formulas are gaining momentum, so much so that The Huffington Post recently saw fit to recommend their seven favorite beauty products using the fermented tea as follows:
1 Marie Veronique Organics Treatment Serum $90, MVOrganics.com Blended with vitamin B5, niacinamide, argan oil and kombucha extract, this facial serum helps to reduce acne breakouts and control oil buildup.
2 Murad Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator $50, Sephora.com I was already a huge fan of this lightweight moisturizer before taking a closer look at its ingredients label. It leaves your irritated skin calm and virtually poreless.
3 Avalon Organics Lavender Luminosity Revitalizing Eye Gel $20, Walgreens.com You can rest assured dabbing this gel onto your puffy and dark under-eyes knowing that it's free of parabens, synthetic colours and fragrances. Instead, you'll get a soothing mix, including aloe vera and lavender.
4 Philip B Chai Latte Soul & Body Wash $35, Neimanmarcus.com This body wash smells almost good enough to eat thanks to exfoliating, toning and hydrating ingredients like honey, ginger, black tea and milk proteins.
5 EmerginC Kombucha Cleanser $34, Dermstore.com This face wash is gentle yet effective enough to wash away a day's worth of dirt and grime, leaving behind a more luminous glow.
6 Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask $88, Sephora.com Our complexions can all use a boost after enduring winter, and this black tea, lychee seed extract and jicima root juice blended mask helps to soften rough skin and stimulate natural collagen.
7 Juara Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer $49, Juaraskincare.com Here's another anti-aging option in the form of a kombucha moisturizer that's safe to use on normal to dry skin, as well as mix with your foundation.
