Beer sediments balance pH levels

The remedial powers of beer sediment were discovered in ancient
Egypt over 4,000 years ago. Today the German company Dayenne claims
that brewer's yeast - Saccharomyces cereviseae - may be used
in biological cosmetics to maintain a balanced pH level and to
combat acne.

Brewer's yeast is made up of unicellular micro-organisms (funghi). These tiny organisms are asexual and multiply, producing up to 24 new young cells at a time. Young yeast cells are therefore easily cultivated and are proven to contain a lot of protein and vitamins.

Dayenne, which has used yeast in cosmetics for over 20 years, claims that the funghi not only helps acne sufferers, but also provides the skin with a healthy 5.0 pH-mark (the acid protection measure of the skin's hydrogen concentration).

Dayenne products are also claimed to be particularily useful for impurities of the skin during puberty. During this period the balance of male and female hormones in both sexes is shifted in favour of the male hormones. The sebaceous glands of about 90 per cent of all teenagers produce more sebum than necessary, causing the skin to shine greasily, leading to impurities and inflammations.

Due to the lack of natural fat-liquidizing substances, the sebum thickens and cannot flow out blocking the skin pores. The thickened fat gets in contact with oxygen and dirt at the exit of the glands. In serious cases acne can develop.

Masque Dayenne, one of the company's skin products, is claimed to be a successful remedy against these skin impurities. With its active ingredients it is seen as a cosmeceutical to feed the skin.

Masque Dayenne contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, nucleic acid, amino acids and biotin along with the young brewer's yeast cells. Used daily for 15 minutes during the first week and before menstruation, the face mask is claimed to have visable results within the first three days of application.

The Dayenne​ natural skincare line also includes tinted day cream, night cream, a cover and healing stick, a bust-decollette cream, eye gel and suncreams.

The Dayenne cosmetics line was developed by a team of specialists in conjunction with the University of Munich, Germany. The company believes that young yeast cells have potential in both cosmetics and skin care, as well as in pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical applications.
