Weird Skin Ingredients to Try Before Everyone Else

Salmon sperm might not sound as pleasant as, say, silver, but according to this study, it might be the savior your skin is missing. In the study, researchers asked male subjects to rub “DNA-Na from salmon milt” (a.k.a. salmon sperm) onto their skin for 12 weeks. By week four, skin elasticity was “improved significantly,” water content had increased, and more the 90 percent of the subjects “felt improving roughness of the skin.” Plus, it promoted the production of hyaluronic acid.

The DNA that is used by Valmont comes from the Canadian
salmon milt. Thanks to a patented extraction process, its molecular structure remains intact. The DNA is said to be « HP » which means highly polymerized. When ingenuously combined with three essential macro-elements (Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium) HP DNA becomes Triple DNA. Selected for their oxygenation and cellular regeneration properties, these three macro-elements provide the DNA molecule with the benefits of the mineral world.

Fermented foods—think kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, and plain yogurt—may not smell pleasant, but they’re full of enzymes that promote a variety of health benefits (healthy digestion, improved immunity, and more). Fermented skin products follow the same line of thinking, and are already a huge trend in Korea (a.k.a. they’re bound to make their way to the U.S. in the next year or so). Here’s the gist: Skincare products with fermented ingredients actually pack a more potent punch because the fermentation process makes the nutrients more concentrated, and thus more easily absorbed. The most common fermented ingredients? Fruits, plants, herbs, and yeast. For example, Biologique Recherche’s Creme Dermopurifiante and Masque Vivant are made with brewers yeast.
