Product Description & Benefits:
Yeast beta glucans have been found to have beneficial effects on the human immune system and recently it has been shown that recognition of these glucans extends to skin fibroblasts, suggesting that the skin may also benefit from topical application of these glucans. These glucans are similar to those in Maitake mushroom, but different from oat beta glucans. The difference is in the way the sugar subunits are linked to each other, changing the tridimensional structure and affecting the way they relate to the immune system, which recognizes shape. The cell wall of yeast is very complex , with a structure that is still being studied and seems to include beta(1--> 3)-glucan, beta(1--> 6)-glucan, chitin, and mannoprotein. Apparently, the stimulating effect of these carbohydrates is not acquired through encounters with pathogens the way we acquire immunity to most microorganisms, but is innate, i.e. present in our genetic make-up. When we come in contact with these very special carbohydrates, our immune system seems to activate so that, when we come in contact with a pathogen, we are better able to deal with it and stop an infection. Apparently, this response may also prepare us to stop our own ""gone bad"" cells, those that have lost the capacity to control cell division and have become cancer cells.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?


DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
