Trillions of microorganisms live and thrive on our skin – primarily bacteria, but also, for example, various fungi and virus species, which together form the ecosystem we call our microbiome.
A balanced microbiome with high bacterial diversity – i.e. as many different bacterial species as possible – is the most important prerequisite for healthy skin. We live in a mutually beneficial relationship with our bacteria – we provide them with food and shelter, they help us to strengthen our immune system, protect against negative environmental effects, maintain the optimum acidity (pH value) of the skin and produce substances that are important for the skin. In other words, bacteria keep the skin healthy, moisturised and well-functioning.
What is probiotic skincare?
Probiotic skincare is skincare products with live probiotic bacteria. They contribute to and preserve the diversity of the skin microbiome, which is essential for maintaining the balance and natural immune system of the skin.Probiotic skincare helps preserve the diversity of the skin microbiome, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s balance and immune system.It is important to know that there are countless variants of each type of bacterium, each with its own unique properties and functionalities. All bacteria belonging to the Lactobacillus plantarum specium share common characteristics, but there are a myriad of different strains of each type of bacterium, each of which also has very specific properties and functionalities.Lactobacillus plantarum is the same type of lactic acid bacterium that you typically encounter in fermented foods and in probiotic food supplements.
Keeping the bacteria alive requires careful formulation and Bak Probiotic Skincare is one of the few brands that know how to do this.
Traditional skincare products contain preservatives, but Bak Probiotic Skincare does not, as it would kill the contents of live bacteria. In addition to the live bacteria, only organic plant oils, glycerin, beeswax and inulin (prebiotics) combined with the antioxidant Vitamin E are used in the Bak Probiotic Skincare series. Preservatives are intended to kill bacteria, and since all three products in Bak Probiotic Skincare contain good live lactic acid bacteria, no preservatives have been added.This has an added benefit, since your skin isn’t polluted by preservatives.
Topically applying live probiotic bacteria on the skin of those who lack the natural defenses against pathogens is a new and more natural way to fight the problem of increasing skin problems caused by imbalances in the skin ecosystem. The probiotic lactic acid bacteria in Bak Probiotic Skincare reduce problems of severely dry and inflamed skin, ensure better skin hydration and effectively soothe and normalise the skin by restoring the natural, bacterial balance of the skin microbiome, which also result in the restoration of the natural immune system.
Natural and organic probiotic skincare keeps the skin healthy, “clean”, moisturized and well-functioning.
