What is biotic skincare?

Biotic skincare nurtures the skin microbiome, the community of microorganisms that live on our skin. These tiny, yet powerful organisms, play a key role in maintaining the health of our skin, regulating immunity, and providing a protective barrier against harmful pathogens.
Biotic skincare is designed to nurture this microbiome. It encourages the growth of beneficial microorganisms, helping to restore balance in this complex ecosystem.

Biotic skincare comes in different types

Prebiotic Skincare

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that feed the existing beneficial bacteria already present on the skin. By feeding these microorganisms, prebiotic skincare products promote their growth and activity.


Probiotic Skincare

Probiotic skincare uses live beneficial bacteria on the skin’s surface, including species like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. These microorganisms help maintain a healthy balance of the skin’s microbiome.


Postbiotic Skincare

Postbiotic skincare products are enriched with byproducts from probiotic bacteria. These byproducts include enzymes, peptides, and organic acids, which have skin-soothing and rejuvenating properties.


Synbiotic Skincare

Synbiotic skincare combines probiotics, prebiotics and postbiotics into one powerful formulation, creating a synergistic effect that rejuvenates and balances the skin, enhancing its natural vitality.


Microbiome, the Skin’s Silent Guardian

The skin microbiome, a complex ecosystem of microorganisms, is a silent guardian that plays a key role in skin health. These microscopic allies coexist harmoniously on the skin’s surface, forming a protective barrier known as the skin microbiota. This barrier not only defends against external aggressors and maintains the skin’s pH balance, but also actively interacts with the immune system. By supporting the immune system, these microorganisms help to ward off pathogenic threats, maintain the integrity of the skin barrier and control inflammation.

The Hidden Trigger: Skin Dysbiosis

The health of our skin is intrinsically linked to the balance of the microbiome living on it. Research has shown that disruptions in the natural harmony of the skin microbiome can result in various skin conditions. This imbalance, often referred to as skin dysbiosis, can lead to skin conditions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, contact dermatitis, rosacea and even accelerated skin aging.
Maintaining the balance of the skin microbiome is crucial for skin health and the prevention of these diseases. In other words, taking care of your skin is taking care of the millions of microorganisms that call your skin their home.

A significant number of skin conditions are caused by an imbalanced skin microbiome.

Protecting Your Skin Microbiome

Choose skincare products that work with your skin microbiome, not against it. Harsh chemicals in skincare products can harm your skin’s health and vitality. Ingredients like sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, and formaldehyde-releasing agents may promise quick fixes but, in reality, can disrupt your skin’s delicate ecosystem.
Biotic skincare nurtures your skin’s microbiome to naturally restore its balance, revealing the beauty of your skin in its most natural state.

By supporting a thriving skin microbiome, biotic skincare addresses not only the visible issues like acne and sensitivity but also the underlying causes.
