‘Bacteria’ are a buzzword in the cosmetic industry. An increasing number of brands claim they do something beneficial for the skin microflora. At the same time, more and more cosmetic products make use of active ingredients based on probiotic bacteria and make them part of their marketing story. Can probiotic active ingredients do something good for the skin microflora?
The microbes living on our skin are different from the probiotic bacteria living inside our body. They play the exact same role, though, just in different parts of our body. The skin microflora makes sure that the skin cannot be invaded by pathogenic bacteria and it positively influences the quality of our skin. This includes the skin’s own ability to manage its microbiome and keep it healthy. A perfect example of a positive feedback loop.
The epithelial cells inside our body, on which the probiotic bacteria reside, are strongly related to the keratinocytes in the top layer of our skin and if you know the science behind the interaction between the bacteria and the cells they live on top of, no matter inside our body or on our skin, only one conclusion can be drawn: probiotic lysates, like our ProRenew Complex CLRTM, potentiate the skin’s ability to manage its microbiome.

Supporting the skin microbiome implies, therefore, supporting and improving the skin’s epidermal renewal processes. This can be achieved with ProRenew Complex CLR™. In vitro studies showed that the positive influence of ProRenew Complex CLR™ on the differentiation processes is remarkable. This was confirmed in in vivo studies, where it was shown that ProRenew Complex CLR™ improves the desquamation process and allows for a quicker recovery of the skin barrier properties. It was also able to improve the production of AMP’s, like cathelicidin and ß-defensin-1, 2 essential factors for the skin in managing its microbiome.
