Probiotics & Well Being
The oral use of probiotics has seen tremendous growth over the last 10 years and the consumer is increasingly eager to try them out on the skin. This is reflected in the strongly growing number of cosmetics producers not just including active ingredients based on probiotics in their formulations, but also using the probiotic concept in the marketing of their products. There are many good reasons to use actives based on probiotics. They are produced sustainably, are highly active and can be used in any type of skincare concept.
The formulations below will give you plenty of ideas on how to approach this concept, which ingredients to use and what kind of activity to expect from them.

The formulations presented below have been especially designed for men, include active ingredients which cater to men's needs and comply to men's expectations as for skin feel and other galenic properties.
Only 12% of cities worldwide meet the WHO's guidelines on air pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Not much is known about the mechanisms through which air pollution damages skin, but there is plenty of evidence that skin is affected. Quality of skin worsens, skin is more irritated and ages more quickly. There is plenty for the cosmetic industry to do here. Cosmetic products work, they can protect and compensate for the negative impact air pollution.
We have compiled a few formulations we have specially developed with air pollution in mind. The formulations contain our active ingredients which protect and regenerate skin where necessary.
Color cosmetics with an added skincare claim and skincare products containing pigments (e.g. alphabet creams) are just two examples of product types which illustrate the blurring lines between the different segments in the cosmetic industry. In times of busy lifestyles this trend will continue to flourish.
