Ever enjoyed a refreshing drink of sake at your favorite Japanese restaurant? If so, we’re willing to bet you weren’t thinking about what it can do for your skin. Yet it turns out that the process of making sake yields one of the most effective natural skincare products in the world. Allow us to introduce you to galactomyces!
Galacta-what? This mouthful is formally known as galactomyces ferment filtrate. Also called pitera, it’s a type of filtered yeast that results from the fermentation of sake. If that grosses you out a little bit, there’s no need to worry. The filtering process that results in galactomyces means that all the icky stuff like bacteria are removed.
Legend has it that galactomyces was discovered when the hands of older sake brewers remained suspiciously smooth and youthful, despite their otherwise wrinkly appearance.
Passion for this ingredient quickly caught fire in Japan, and it’s now gaining popularity the world over. And for good reason: it works!
It may be easier to ask what this ingredient doesn’t do for your skin. It’s been well-studied, but you don’t need to look to the science to see results. You can see them on your own face. Here’s what you can expect with regular use of a product that contains galactomyces:
Perhaps most importantly, galactomyces is super nutrient-dense. It’s chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that protect and nourish your skin. (Thanks Sake!)
Compared to manufactured skincare products, galactomyces is gentle on the skin and safe for just about everyone to use. It may be especially beneficial for you if you have very oily or dull-looking skin or if you would like to reduce the size of your pores. Really, it’s great for anyone who wants their skin to glow and who wants to slow the signs of aging.
Here at Wild Ice, we know the power galactomyces has to give you your best skin. So we’ve made it super easy to incorporate into your skincare routine by adding it to Gaea’s Gala, our refreshing toner spray.
Just a few spritzes of Gaea’s Gala after washing your face will balance your skin’s pH and dose you up with the age-defying power of galactomyces at the same time. And just like all of our products, we keep Gaea’s Gala (and all of the ingredients that comprise it) cold until the very moment we ship it to you, ensuring maximum potency and freshness for the health of your skin.
Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.

I tried Wild Ice after a friend recommended it and I asked her what she uses because her skin looks amazing! So far, I LOVE the products! They feel, smell and work fantastic!
This is a lovely cream—wonderfully soothing and hydrating. It is a winner!—And makes my skin feel soft and look dewy. Love all the products from Wild Ice!
I’ve been using Cryo-C for about a month. To my thinking, my skin has been looking less splotchy and more luminous! I think my skin might be getting addicted to this stuff!
I am so glad I found you. Thank you for making such awesome products!!!
Do you happen to sell travel sets?
I really love all the products I’m using from Wild Ice. After about 3 weeks I’m seeing and feeling a difference. The cold cream therapy particularly feels cool and moisturizing. I’m so glad I gave these products a try.
Before starting this system, I had these patches of skin on my forehead that would peel off, but come right back. They are gone. Cancelled my dermatology appointment!
I never thought I would enjoy a toner before... I used to think they were rather pointless, didn't work, and difficult to apply since most the product gets absorbed in a cotton ball or hands. I've tried a handful of toners, but they left my face sticky, or didn't work that well. But Ms. Gala?? She is refreshing, crispy, clean, and actually does balance your face, to my surprise. The atomizer spray is perfect and doesn't waste product. I will definitely repurchase this!
Wild Ice has made me relearn what skincare is: I've exited the world of low-performance, filler packed products and entered the world of these thoughtfully made creations that truly care for my skin.
DBT Baba Yaga my favorite of the line! It's just what my skin needed. The consistency is delightful, my skin feels soothed the entire day, and I've noticed an improvement in the texture and feel of my skin. The dispenser is a little forceful but I've learned how to use it better.
I've (25 y/o) used this for about three weeks and have noticed a real difference. When looking at other products, always thought "brightness" and vit-C products were about making your skin lighter, and removed dark spots. Sounds great, but never seemed significant to me... But then I tried the Cryo-C and finally understand how it works!! I noticed results after the three week mark. My skin looks and feels much fresher with no congestion - that's the best way I can describe it! Totally worth it and it makes me happy. :-) I wear this only at night before bed and it feels so nice and lightweight. I personally really love the smell as well!
Love this cleanser! Have been using it for almost a year now. Can be used for oily or dry skin too. So glad I made the switch to all wild ice products.
Thank you sweet Mila. I love your products so MUCH!!! Hope to see you soon at the Rosemary farmers market!! Much LOVE!
This is my 2nd order….I did try another product and my face and skin are not as good as when I used Wild Ice!! You can truly tell a difference!! I’m 60 years old and love how this makes my skin look and feel!!!
The BMeltee cleanser is very mild, but my face has benefited from using it as part of my ritual. And for Gaeas Gala, I never used a toner before. At least consistently. From the positive reaction of my skin, it is definitely part of my ritual. I can’t say enough great things about CryoC either! When I first applied it, it seems like orange colored bio oil. But talk about my skin drinking it up instead it looking like my face is an oil well site! My complexion has become dewy! insofar as the Baba Yaga cream, which is a must, I’ve only had one other moisturizer beneficially affect my skin and that moisturizer comes with a pricey price tag. All in all, I’m pleased with my ritual of the products, my skin loves it, and I will definitely be a long time customer! 5 stars! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I have been using the whole Wild Ice facial cleansing system for a couple of years. I get compliments on my skin routinely. The products have made an incredible difference in my skin. The products smell and feel wonderful.
