Did we lose you at probiotics? Here’s what you need to know.
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms – the “good guys” found naturally on our skin. They can also be added to skincare products to improve the overall microbiome balance, usually via ferments and lysates.
Prebiotics are basically food – the nourishment that probiotics need to be able to do their job, often various sugars and fibres.
Postbiotics are the leftovers of probiotics that have broken down on the skin. While this may sound worrying, it’s not – postbiotics consist of beneficial substances such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins and peptides.
All three “biotics” are essential to your microbiome, so including any of them in your skincare is a good idea. Explore our microbiome products here
