Made from self-brewed kombucha, these kombucha bar are really good for your skin! Though long known for its internal uses, Kombucha does have a wide range of external uses as well. Its SCOBY can help to soothe burns, cuts and other surface wounds. The 30 day+ old Kombucha in is a natural acid peel without any harmful chemicals and this promotes circulation to the skin’s surface which regenerates the cells.
Kombucha is an acetic acid ferment, like vinegar, but with a weaker acetic acid solution (less than 1%). This mild vinegar is a natural exfoliator as the acid is strong enough to break the bonds of dead skin but not so strong that it leaves skin feeling dry or flaky. To the contrary, it leaves skin feel soft and smooth. Kombucha also produces trace amounts of beauty acids such a hyaluronic, lactic, and malic which are often found in pricier cosmetic applications and help fight age lines, spots and wrinkles.
