Skin Biome Protection

Cleanliness is a vital element to a healthy microbiome, both internally and externally. When we are dealing with the skin microbiome, it is highly sensitive to the environment. External cleanliness and the ability for the skin to breathe play a vital role in maintaining skin health. If the body is not appropriately cleansed, pathogens can proliferate onto the skin causing rashes and irritation. Using harsh cleaning materials and sterilization also has a negative impact on the skin's microbiome. These processes will destroy the healthy skin barrier that protects us from the elements, increases the skins aging process, and its ability to regenerate.[1]

In today's modern world, we see the adverse effects of over-sterilization with chemical sanitizers. The immune systems of most children have become compromised, making them susceptible to many viruses and bacteria.

The ultimate form of hygienic cleanliness is to avoid the use of chemical laden products and allow the natural process of the body to take place. When chemicals are abstained from not only do ammonia oxidizing bacteria help the skin, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotic strains can perform their duties as well.[2]

Strains like:

  1. Lactobacillus acidophilus has been shown to increase lactic acid production to improve skin glow.

  2. Lactobacillus ferment and Bifidobacterium longum help reduce inflammation of the skin, improve skin hydration, and reduce the sensitivity of the skin.

  3. Lactobacillus Plantarum and rhamnosus help with anti-aging and UV protection.

  4. Bifidobacterium lactis and bifidum, have been shown to prevent acne.
