Prebiotic and Probiotic are necessary ingredients to support the skin’s microbiome. Those with compromised skin (sensitive, sensitized, acne and excema prone, and/or dry and chapped) will love the rebalancing and regulating results of using Pre and Probiotics in your skincare routine.
Prebiotics are important in feeding probiotics. One example of a Prebiotic is Fructooligosaccharide (D-beta), a naturally occurring carbohydrate derived from cane or beet sugar, it promotes growth of healthy probiotic bacteria to strengthen skin immunity.
The most common Probiotic found in skincare is Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate Filtrate, which has properties that are capable of motivating collagen synthesis, increasing oxygen uptake and improving cellular respiration and energy production.
