You probably know the probiotics under the name of lactic acid bacteria, naturally present in the fermented products like the yogurts which facilitate digestion, and regulate the transit, or in drinks, and the food supplements.
Usually, when we hear about probiotics, we think of functions that help keep our digestive system in balance while strengthening the intestinal flora.
Now, probiotics are making their way into cosmetic formulations!
Laboratoire Orescience research and development experts stress the importance of probiotics for skin care, as they help maintain the balance of the skin microbiome of bacteria, viruses, fungi and genes that make up the skin ecosystem of the skin.
Did you know that there are over 500 types of bacteria on our skin?
Probiotic bacteria are found naturally on the skin and are a very important part, just like the gut, our skin also has its own ecosystem.
These bacteria are essential for fighting infections, protecting against environmental damage, regulating pH levels, and keeping skin hydrated and healthy, in order to keep it in balance.
Probiotics: what are their benefits in cosmetic formulas?
- A powerful anti-inflammatory
- Deep hydration of the skin
- Decrease in factors that cause skin irritations.
- Visible improvement in signs of dryness, tightness and loss of brightness characteristic of damaged skin.
- Reduction of premature skin damage induced by sun exposure, slowing the signs of aging caused by UV rays.
- Reduction of redness due to itching, burning and dry skin, especially for atopic skin.
With age, stress, pollution, antibiotics, hormonal changes, and poor diet, the skin undergoes changes and conditions that cause an imbalance between good and bad bacteria, often appearing as infections, such as acne, redness.
