In this study, we evaluated the effects of essence-formed cosmetic ingredients containing the galactomyces ferment filtrate on human skin improvements in keratinization, pores, sebum excretion, brightness and acne. For analyzing the effects, twenty volunteers were participated and each results was determined by treating the essence containing 97% of galactomyces ferment filtrate on their faces in three times. The results showed that the number of the large opened pores and blackhead pores on faces were significantly reduced more than 15.66 and 21.84% by treating the essence as compared to the number of pores on untreated control faces. Also the amount of sebum and keratin in faces were meaningfully reduced by 64.17 and 16.47%, respectively. In addition, we further demonstrated that the levels of the skin brightness were improved after treatment of the reagent by 2.49% respectively. Moreover, the number of acne were decreased 9.59%. Survey analysis showed that the volunteers had highly satisfaction on the reagents. Collectively, the results indicated that the 97% of galactomyces containing essence-formed cosmetics have an improved effect on facial skin.
