The relevance of probiotic cosmetics for consumers. 10/18

Probiotic skincare is enjoying a lot of attention in the cosmetic market at the moment. Today’s modern consumers are well educated and demanding. They look for cosmetics that are natural and sustainable, supporting their skin in maintaining skin health while easy to use and highly effective. They appreciate the idea of making use of the technologies delivered to us by beneficial bacteria and rightfully so. There is a growing body of evidence on the advantages for skin of both oral uptake of probiotic bacteria and the topical use of so-called postbiotics, lysates of probiotic bacteria. They improve skin structure and barrier properties and support the skin in protecting itself against harmful influences from the outside, making them more than a trend. They are extremely relevant for consumers.

The condition of the skin plays an important role in the overall process of well-being. A disbalance in the skin negatively influences our overall look as well as the ability to relax and to recover. As a consequence, not only the skin but the whole body becomes more sensitive to the stresses it is exposed to. The health and resilience of the skin decisively depend on a tightly regulated balance between different cell functions. Whereas probiotic food supports protective mechanisms in our gut, supporting bodily health, probiotic cosmetics transfer those benefits to the skin.

CLR Berlin has been making use of probiotic bacteria for the production of active ingredients for skincare since the late 1970s. We have and are continuing to work on this technology, learning about what they can do for skin and how they actually work, virtually every day. Since the beginning, CLR has made lysates of probiotic bacteria, meaning that the bacterial cells are not just dead, but completely disintegrated, making sure that skin cells can get access to all molecules produced by the bacteria, not just those on the outer cell surface.

Probiotic active ingredients from CLR combine effectiveness, science and biomimetics with biotechnology, sustainability and naturalness. They are proven to work and are the perfect choice for a wide variety of skincare concepts.
