Saccharomyces Ferment 30% Milky Toner by TheOrdinary

Nowadays, toners have a much gentler format and have taken on a whole new role. Coming between the Prep and Treat stage in a daily regimen (more on this below), toners help prepare the skin for additional products like serums, oils, and creams.

The Ordinary Milky Toner is a new non-acid exfoliating toner. The Ordinary say that this bypasses traditional toners that use skin acids as the hero ingredient. Instead this new formula use N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) to exfoliate the surface of the skin.

The Ordinary Milky Toner Key Ingredients

Saccharomyces Ferment – yeast fermennt

N-Acetyl Glucosamine – prevents dead skin cells sticking to the skin

Squalane – for short and long term hydration and support skin barrier

What is N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG)?

NAG is a fermentation derived technology with an acid-mimicking formula. It encourages surface exfoliation to smooth out texture and deliver radiance to the skin.

In The Ordinary Milky Toner, the 3%N-Acetyl Glucosamine undergoes an additional fermentation process using Saccharomyces cerevisiae (the common yeast strain used in fermentation).

AHAs vs NAG for Exfoliation

Exfoliation agents generally work by targeting the adhesives that hold the dead skin cells together.

AHAs work to break down these adhesion structures, whereas NAG actually prevents them from sticking to the dead skin cells to start with, which allows easier exfoliation.
