What are pre & postbiotics?
Prebiotics are substances that act as food for the good bacteria on your skin. Those types of bacteria act as your skin’s defences (eliminating bad microbes, keeping a healthy pH) so it’s important to keep them in top shape – especially if you have problems with your skin.
Postbiotics are substances that are produced by fermenting bacteria. They don’t need to be alive to work – unlike probiotics!
Your skin’s living shield
Pre and postbiotics can help regulate and improve your skin’s microbiota. But the effect can be different for each person, because every skin has a unique microbiome. Find out what works best for you and your skin’s living shield!
What about probiotics?
There’s a lot of hype around probiotics (we love probiotics in our food – be it kimchi, kefir or sourdough!), but in skincare, things are not that simple.
Probiotics are live bacteria and they will not survive in a skincare product (it can be achieved under certain conditions, but it’s expensive, awkward to package and transport and there’s still a good chance they won’t survive very long once you open your product).
You will see many brands claim they have probiotics in their products, but in reality, they have pre and/or postbiotics. We believe that is misleading, that is why we use (and SAY!) PRE and POST biotics in our essence – they can have great benefits for your skin without the issues that come with probiotics.
How to Use
Apply 2-3 pumps on clean skin. Should be applied after cleansing (in the evening) and before serums or moisturizers.
You can use this booster every day, both in the morning and in the evening. Find a routine that works best for you!
