Postbiotics are short chain fatty acids that are simply byproducts from probiotics.

    In skincare, postbiotics can help strengthen the microbiome of your skin and clear away acne.

Achieving Healthy Skin Microbiome with Postbiotics

What is the skin microbiome?

The skin microbiome is the physical layer of skin that protects you from the outside world. It is a delicate ecosystem of bacteria living within the skin's protective layer.

If clear skin seems elusive for you, perhaps you should start using postbiotics to win the fight against acne. Postbiotics are byproducts created by probiotics. They help improve your skin’s microbiome which teems with bacteria.

What does research say about using postbiotics for healthy skin microbiome?

When skin is properly balanced, the good bacteria are in charge. But when things are amiss, that’s when you’ll see skin problems like acne, among other things, come into play. Using postbiotics can help strengthen your skin’s microbiome and improve the clearness and clarity of your skin. 

A study published in September of 2020 noted a significant improvement when comparing blackheads and whiteheads, among other papules. With the use of postbiotics, particularly bacillus ferment, it delivers the equivalent results to benzoyl peroxide while outranking it in reducing sebum secretion. In other words, it helps cut down on oily and greasy skin while bringing your skin’s microbiome back into harmony. 

What are the benefits of using Postbiotics in skincare?

While you can’t see them, you’re never fully alone since your face is covered with an ecosystem of bacterial microbes. When your skin is healthy, it has a diverse population of varied microbes living there. This diversity is crucial for fighting off pathogens and mitigating the effects of air pollution. Should your skin lack a varied number of microbes, you’re bound to see more inflammatory conditions, including acne. 

Even though postbiotics are a waste product of probiotics, these are created by fermentation. When they ferment, they create peptides, amino acids, and enzymes. This is why postbiotics are so hydrating and anti-inflammatory for the skin. Additionally, they can strengthen your skin’s natural barrier to improve its overall health and keep it clear.
