World of Prebiotics

Key Point: Prebiotics are non-living ingredients that are used to support the growth, survival and balance of “Good Bacteria” on your skin – helping to keep your skin microbiome healthy and strong. They are already present all over your skin, hair and intestine.

When PREBIOTICS are used in skincare products, they can be instrumental to restore the balance between good and bad bacteria on your skin. This will improve the condition of dry, itchy skin and help scalp heath and haircare also.

 

So Looking after your skin is important. After all, it’s the largest organ in your body and works incredibly hard to help keep you happy and healthy, protecting you from the sun’s dangerous rays and ensuring any bad bacteria are kept out and vital moisture kept in.

Of course, not all the bacteria your skin is exposed to is harmful, much of it is in fact “Good Bacteria”. Just like your gut, your skin is home to hundreds of varieties of bacteria, along with other microorganisms, many of which can be classed as helpful or “good” and which form the skin microbiome. These bacteria contribute to a healthy complexion, working together in perfect balance to ensure a functioning ecosystem on and in your skin.

To ensure your skin is in peak condition respect the skin and maintain and nurture the balance of the microbiome. When you fail to do so then this is when skin and hair issues can arise, such as dry, itchy skin.

When PREBIOTICS are used in skincare products, they can be instrumental to restore the balance between good and bad bacteria on your skin. This will improve the condition of dry, itchy skin and help scalp heath and haircare also.

Although they sound pretty similar, probiotics and prebiotics are two vastly different things with specific functions.

Probiotics are living microorganisms that are found both naturally in your body and in food and supplements. When consumed or applied to the skin, they provide a wealth of positive benefits for the body.

Prebiotics on the other hand aren’t actually alive. They are non-digestible ingredients that help to nourish the good bacteria in your gut or on your skin and balance the microbiome.

Probiotics considered “Friendly Bacteria” consist of different groups of live bacteria and microorganisms that live both in the body and on the skin’s surface. Several different species exist and can contribute towards treating IBS, digestion problems and skin disorders like acne and eczema when consumed.

Using products containing prebiotics and/ or probiotics can have a positive effect or skin microbiome.

Prebiotics can be applied directly to the skin’s surface through cosmetic creams like moisturisers to address the balance of healthy bacteria that make up your skin microbiome.

They can help preserve the existing healthy bacteria on your skin when applied and encourage the growth and survival of probiotic microorganisms already in your skin microbiome. By helping to maintain a balanced healthy microbiome, such products help maintain the integrity of the skin barrier for healthier-looking skin.

Both probiotics and prebiotics can play a major part in achieving a healthy complexion, as well as managing dry, itchy skin.
