The Power of Prebiotics in Skincare: Healthier Complexion with Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate

Back to blog


In the ever-evolving world of skincare, the focus has increasingly shifted towards ingredients that not only treat but also support the natural functions of the skin. Among these, prebiotics have emerged as a powerful component in nurturing a healthy skin environment, especially beneficial for those dealing with acne and seeking to enhance their skin's barrier function. In this post, we'll explore the role of prebiotics in skincare, focusing on a standout ingredient—Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate—used in our renowned Multi-action Moisturiser.

Understanding Prebiotics in Skincare

Prebiotics are nutrients that feed the beneficial bacteria on your skin, helping to maintain and restore the balance of the skin’s microbiota. This balance is crucial for protecting the skin against pathogens, environmental damage, and inflammation. By strengthening the skin’s natural defenses, prebiotics play a vital role in maintaining overall skin health and enhancing its barrier function.

Benefits of Prebiotics for Skin

  1. Boosting Skin Barrier Function: Prebiotics help to fortify the skin's barrier, enhancing its ability to retain moisture and protect against environmental pollutants and irritants that can exacerbate skin conditions like acne.
  2. Reducing Acne: By promoting a balanced skin microbiome, prebiotics help to reduce the prevalence of acne-causing bacteria, leading to fewer breakouts and improved skin clarity. Research indicates that Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate specifically can inhibit the growth of Propionibacterium acnes, directly impacting acne reduction (Smith et al., 2020).
  3. Soothing Inflammation: Prebiotics can help reduce skin inflammation, making them ideal for calming redness and irritation associated with acne and other skin sensitivities. A 2019 study found that topical application of Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate significantly reduced skin inflammation and improved barrier function (Jones & Garcia, 2019).

Spotlight on Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate

One of the most effective prebiotics in skincare is Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate. This ingredient is derived from the fermentation of Lactobacillus, a type of bacteria beneficial to both gut and skin health. In our Multi-action Moisturiser, Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate works synergistically with other key ingredients to deliver remarkable skincare benefits:

  • Niacinamide: This form of vitamin B3 works to reduce skin inflammation, minimize pores, and regulate oil production, which is crucial for acne-prone skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Known for its hydrating properties, hyaluronic acid deeply moisturizes the skin, helping to maintain a plump, youthful appearance.
  • Centella Asiatica: Also known as Gotu Kola, this plant extract is revered for its healing properties, boosting collagen production, and soothing irritated skin.
  • Ceramides: Essential lipid molecules that reinforce the skin's barrier and help retain moisture.
  • Colloidal Oats: Known for their soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, making them excellent for sensitive skin types.

Prebiotics like Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate represent a crucial step towards embracing a holistic approach in skincare, focusing on ingredients that restore and balance rather than merely mask or strip away. For anyone struggling with acne or looking to improve their skin barrier function, incorporating prebiotic-rich products can be a game-changer.
