F.A.Q.: 

Waht is Kombuchka?

Kombuchka is a trademark in the cosmetics industry. The active ingredient is Kombucha - a fermentation product of the sweetened black tea. Fermentation occurs due to two microorganisms, bacteria and yeast. Yeast converts the sugar into alcohol and bacteria consumes the alcohol and produces acetic acid, which adds acidic taste to the final product.

What are the benefits of Kombucha for the skin?

Kombucha has a lot of traditional and scientific proven benefits:

  • Anti-aging properties - it inhibits the activity of collagenase and elastase enzymes, which enhances quantity of collagen and elastin in the skin and makes it smooth, resilient and youthful.
  • Antiseptic and probiotic properties - used for the acne treatment.
  • Antioxidant activity - contains flavonoids (from tea leaves and fermentation products), which are protecting the skin from oxidation, UV radiation and cancer.
  • Anti-glycation activity - effects on the adipocyte cell population of the skin (re-densifying and radiance effect).

Can I put Kombucha on my face?

Kombucha traditionally has been used for the acne treatment. It contains an ethyl acetate and acetic acid fraction which has antiseptic properties.

So the answer is yes, you can put it on your face, but it's undesirable to use Kombucha stand-alone.

Kombucha has low pH 2.5-3.5 as acetic acid is average strength organic acid, and it'll change the pH balance (should be 5.5) of the skin. We recommend to use skin care products containing Kombuchka, which will have other ingredients, balancing pH and potentiating beneficial effects on the skin.
