Recent research has shown that probiotics are actually good for the skin. For years they have been known to improve one’s health and immune system. But now research has finally reached a good understanding of how they can actually strengthen the skin and make it less prone to dryness. Those are some of the significant attributes consumers seek when looking for skin care products. In the last few years there have been an influx of skin care products that promote their probiotics and benefits for the skin.

The idea of probiotics being good for the skin has been being studied for almost 15 years. The latest clinical studies found that harmful bacteria we ingest can lead to the unwanted skin symptoms such as redness and acne. Probiotics can come in many forms such as in yogurt, Kombucha, and supplements. Supplements have actually been found to hydrate the skin and reduce wrinkles.

Probiotics have acidic compounds such as lactic acid which battles the growth of pathogens. They also have bacteriocins which are very potent and prevent pathogen adhesion. Compounds such as these play a great role in improving and hydrating sensitive skin, and reducing acne, dermatitis, and skin cancer.

As of right now, only bacteria fragments or metabolites for proibidos formulas are present in skin care products. Although, there are probiotics with live bacteria cultures, they have not been found to be more effective than the ladder. But it is possible we can see some products with live bacteria cultures in the future.

Dr. Erin Gilbert MD has stated that probiotics can benefit the following skin conditions:

  • Aging
  • Acne
  • Inflammation
  • Dullness
  • Rosacea

They can also help the immune and digestive system.

Now is a better time than ever to start looking into entering the cosmetic industry, specifically probiotics. Companies like L’Oreal and Estee Lauder are leading the way with their own innovations involving probiotics.
