Probiotics aren’t just reserved for yoghurt or sauerkraut anymore. Nope, the gut-balancing bacteria strains have found their space in the skincare realm, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Our body is home to millions of microorganisms, ranging from bacteria, to fungus and everywhere in between. These microscopic organisms play a crucial role in supporting our internal systems. For each human cell, there are about 10 microorganisms working the background to promote a healthy immune system, detoxify chemicals, and help digestion. There’s a significant collection of microorganisms living on our skin as well - healthy bacteria that call the upper parts of the epidermis and hair follicles home. These organisms balance pH and protect from invasive pathogens.
Our skin is complex and unique, requiring a range of formulas and rituals to ensure that it’s properly hydrated, balanced, and supported. Using harsh cleansers and antibacterial skin products truly have the adverse effect of healthy skin. Constant use of harsh products strips skin of these healthy bacteria we truly need. The result is often dry and stressed skin, as well as issues like breakouts and flares.
How probiotics help your skincare
Enter probiotic-rich skincare, an approach that introduces good bacteria on the skin and sustains the rich microbial ecosystem that already exists. Topical probiotics amplify protection against ‘bad’ bacteria while reducing inflammation and generally promoting a balanced ecosystem. Certain applied probiotics boost the production of ceramides (lipid fats that deeply moisturise), while can reduce acne and sustain hydration.
Driven by the natural cycles of our skin, we’ve formulated products that acknowledge the benefits of topical probiotics. In our Nutritious Skin Treatment Mask, we’ve harnessed the ProRenew Complex CLR™️, a lysate probiotic approach to radical skin renewal and resurfacing. This approach looks to the aging process and positively influences the speed and quality of epidermal growth. By introducing key probiotics, the ProRenew Complex CLR™️ with a hand from our PreBio™ Defense prebiotic increases barrier function, cell cohesion, and the production of essentials and proteins for incredibly regenerated skin.
For unmatched hydration, we’ve gone to the natural and delicious source of probiotics: yogurt. As the centrepiece of the Minenssey Hydrating Range is the Probiotic ACB Yogurt Dermal Respiratory Factor. While a mouthful to say, this technology is truly incredible. This approach to skincare increases cellular respiration, metabolism and collagen products for anti-aging benefits.
The skincare industry as a whole is realising that products need to work with the natural process of the skin. We’re excited to stay at the forefront of natural products that compliment and collaborate with our natural rhythm for skincare routines that are truly effective.
