Fermented ingredients have a higher concentration of antioxidants and nutrients than non-fermented versions of the same ingredients. The fermentation process itself also produces additional skin-beneficial ingredients, such as amino acids and peptides. Additionally, fermentation helps break down the ingredients into more readily absorbed constituents, so the positive effects the ingredients have to offer are experienced more fully.
There’s also early but promising scientific evidence that some lactobacillus ferments help treat and prevent acne and rosacea. The mechanism by which this is achieved is still being explored, but the speculation is that this effect is due to a combination of the protective, “shielding” effect lactobacillus provides for skin cells, the antibacterial effect of bacteriocin produced by lactobacillus, and the anti-inflammatory effect of lactobacillus.

Maybe, avoid too many layering of different products till your skin is adapted to new product, then slowly adding on existing products.
is found naturally in the skin and provides antiaging and gentle exfoliating benefits without sun sensitivity. Sensitive skin types as well as those who have had recent superficial cosmetic procedures will find comfort in this molecule’s gentle nature. Gluconolactone strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier leaving it more resilient, while also providing potent antioxidant benefits. Gluconolactone is a welcome choice for sensitive skin types or following recent superficial cosmetic procedures where the skin can be more sensitive.
Gluconolactone is kind of an acid, even though you would probably not guess it from its name.It’s a PHA, or polyhydroxy acid. PHAs are close relatives to the famous AHAs,both in terms of similar chemical structure and similar effects on the skin.
Start by using product only three times a week to avoid irritation. Then, gradually increase your frequency to once a day and / or twice a day. A little tingling is normal. If still too intense, dilute the product with a few drops of water or layer a hydrating mist underneath to cut the intensity.
WHO SHOULD USE IT: In general, it’s good for all skin types, particularly those with sensitive or mature skin who can’t tolerate the irritation that can come from AHAs and BHAs. To avoid unnecessary irritation, especially in the initial phase of toner application, we do not recommend the use of vitamin A and C or any other exfoliation products on the face when using our product containing Gluconolactone.
WORKS WELL WITH: Tried and true skincare staples—namely, vitamin C, retinoids, and alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids—as part of an overall anti-aging regimen. While gluconolactone does work synergistically with other acids and retinoids, we recommend separating them if your skin is sensitive.
HOW OFTEN CAN YOU USE IT: If you’re not using any other chemical exfoliants in your routine, it’s gentle enough for daily use. Otherwise, use it a few times per week. Once your skin has build up the tolerance and you find you can tolerate with combination of other exfoliation products or Vitamin products, then proceed to increase your frequency to once a day and / or twice a day. Tingling or warm sensation is normal due to the mixing of products, however if you experience burn, please stop mixing the products altogether and use them on separate days.
DON’T USE WITH: It plays nice with most other ingredients, although you do want to be cautious about over-exfoliation when it’s used in tandem with other acids or exfoliants such as retinoids.
In general, it’s good for all skin types, particularly those with sensitive or mature skin who can’t tolerate the irritation that can come from AHAs and BHAs counterpart.
If applying directly is too intense, try diluting the product with a few drops of cream or layer a hydrating oil underneath to cut the intensity.
Tingling sensation and redness are usually normal for sensitive prone skin due to the exfoliation property. However, if you are experiencing a prolong (more than 45minutes) slight burning and inflamed sensation, please wash your face and stop using them.
Though as with any topical acid, you want to be extra cautious if you have a condition where the skin is compromised, such as rosacea or atopic dermatitis. And yes, because it is still an acid, redness and dryness are always possible.
Pregnant and lactating women should consult a physician before utilising products that contain any ingredient, as should those with allergies or sensitivities, or anyone currently using prescription drug.
Unfortunately, as this is based on individual's condition, we are not able to comment further.

I love kelp masks and was excited to try, the order came really quick, the mask was slimes which I knew it was going to be but it stung my face afterwards. ;-( my skin did feel soft but the mild stinging didn’t give me a good experience
Thank you for your time in reviewing the mask.
Due to the active ingredients formulated in the essence, some slightly sensitive, drier or thinner skin may experience the tingling or stinging sensation. Especially to those who actively use some other active exfoliation product in the regime, they may also experience the thingling sensation.
The formulation allows the essence to make their way through your skin as they moisturise and brightens up your skin within.
We do apologise for your uncomfortable experience with our mask. However, we hope the mask did serve some glow to you :)
This mask is incredible. It left my skin so hydrated and the mask stayed wet and hydrated for a good 40 minutes. When I took it off my skin was so plump - especially underneath my eyes. I wish Whamisa would make the kelp masks as eye patches so I could them every night!!!
I love Whamisa facial products
I love Whamisa facial products because they deliver results, smell fresh and are easy to use. I received these mask on-time with additional Whamisa samples which help me determine other if their products to purchase. Great customer service! I enjoy the kelp mask because it's organic with plants from the ocean and what it promises it delivers.
This is one of the most unique masks I've ever used.
This is one of the most unique masks I've ever used. It is made of 100% real kelp and soaked in a huge amount of serum. The mask is divided into two pieces for the upper and lower portions of the face. First, I apply some of the serum all over my face and neck. Then, I place the masks on for about 40 minutes to an hour. The bottom piece sometimes slips down to my lip, but the rest fits perfectly. I remove the masks when they're still somewhat wet and pat the remaining serum in the package on my face, neck, hands, and arms. I seal in everything with a moisturizer. My face looks radiant, hydrated, and firm. These effects last the next 2 days for me.
I recommend Whamisa's hydrogel sheet masks as well.
