What Do Probiotics Do in Skincare?

Do you suffer from breakouts, redness, or irritated, reactive skin? Probiotics may be the solution to your skincare concerns. 

The trillions of microorganisms that live on top of your skin have an essential role in protecting against invading pathogens. So when your skin microbiome is compromised, it can’t function as it should. In fact, scientists have found an association between a compromised microbiome and several common skincare concerns including acne, rosacea, and atopic dermatitis.

Fortunately, probiotic skincare—such as our newly reformulated Probiotic Gel Moisturizer—can help. 

Why Use Probiotics in Skincare?

Diversity is essential when it comes to your skin’s microbiome, which is where probiotics come in. Probiotics are body-friendly bacteria that have been shown to strengthen the immune system and increase nutrient absorption. By applying probiotics topically, you’re introducing beneficial bacteria and nutrients that work to strengthen your skin’s first defense against pathogens and irritants.

How Probiotics Benefit The Skin

Probiotics in skincare can help stabilize and strengthen your skin’s microbiome. This can help:
  1. Strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier, helping it to stay more hydrated
  2. Visibly improve redness
  3. Reduce inflammation for smoother, calmer skin

Is Probiotic Skincare Good for Acne?

Studies show that topically-applied probiotics produce ceramides, strengthening the skin barrier. This is especially beneficial for people with acne-prone skin, as ceramides soothe the irritation associated with breakouts. Data also shows that some probiotics can reduce the number and size of blemishes and provide relief from acne-related irritation.

Our Cutting-Edge Encapsulated Probiotics

Historically, it’s been tricky to incorporate live probiotics into skincare products. That’s what makes our innovative encapsulation technology such a game-changer. Unlike regular probiotics, encapsulated ones are shielded in a protective coating that keep these delicate microorganisms live and potent, ensuring their stability and effectiveness as they come in contact with your skin. 

We used natural algae to create a capsule capable of keeping live probiotics shelf-stable without refrigeration. This groundbreaking delivery system enables our newly reformulated Probiotic Gel Moisturizer to deliver live probiotics directly to your skin, balancing and strengthening its microbiome for smoother, clearer, calmer, healthier skin.

How Our Science-Backed Formula Boosts Probiotics’ Efficacy

It wasn’t enough for us to simply create a formula that includes shelf-stable, live probiotics. We supercharged our formula with our sustainable sugarcane-derived squalane, which has been shown to deliver 40 times more active ingredients than other emollients. This ensures that your microbiome gets the highest-possible amount of beneficial live bacteria.Weightless and non-comodegenic, squalane is bioidentical to your body’s natural moisturizing oils, making it the ideal moisturizing ingredient for every skin type.Shop Probiotic Gel MoisturizerBiossance Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
