Lactobacillus/coconut fruit juice ferment filtrate

Lactobacillus/coconut fruit juice ferment filtrate is the filtered result of combining the skin-friendly lactobacillus bacteria with the milky liquid found inside coconuts. Once blended, the lactobacillus begins the fermentation process, releasing natural sugars (polysaccharides) in the coconut that work on skin as prebiotics (food sources for the microflora that constitute skin’s microbiome).

Along with microbiome support, this ferment filtrate also helps soften and condition skin.
