This powerhouse serum is as uncomplicated as it gets: The first two ingredients are Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (80%) and Bifida Ferment Lysate (10%). GFF was first discovered in sake brewhouses, when it was discovered that the elderly workers had surprisingly youthful hands. GFF has long been coveted for its amazing skin protective, anti-aging, brightening, and hydrating powers, while the probiotic ingredient Bifida Ferment Lysate is believed to help skin repair itself.

What started as a passion project by Lee Jang Won and his brother to address their own skin problems has grown into a global skincare brand known for its transparency, high percentage of active ingredients, like snail mucin and galactomyces ferment filtrate, and affordable prices. Inspired by the reverse aging of the title character in the film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” the brothers named this passion project Benton (BENjamin + ButTON) to represent the brand’s goal of turning back the hands of time on your skin. The mission of Benton is to provide a line of skincare that is effective yet natural, using the purest and highest quality ingredients possible, along with only natural preservatives. To that end, Benton keeps its packaging simple, focusing on small batch production and key ingredients to strengthen and maintain the skin’s barrier function. Benton is cruelty-free.

W2Beauty is proud to be the first online seller of Benton for the U.S. market.

I received a champion of this essence with my last order and I think it's a good product. It moisturizes the skin without weighing it and it absorbs quickly.
