Microbiome and microflora– what are these strange words? While they may seem unfamiliar to you, these terms are hot topics in the skincare world. That’s because new research is finding how the skin’s microbiome plays an important role in keeping our skin looking healthy and beautiful.
At Juice Beauty, our skincare scientists are pioneering this new research. Through extensive investigation and testing, our team developed the groundbreaking skincare PREBIOTIX Collection known for protecting the microbiome. Full of rich prebiotics and probiotic ingredients—beauty inside and out.
What is the skin microbiome?
The microbiome is defined as the community of microflora that live on the skin. According to Dr. Whitney Bowe, author of Beauty of Dirty Skin,
“Our skin’s microbiome is a rainforest of diverse organisms which live in and on your skin’s various layers, from the deep-down fat cushion all the way up to your epidermal cells up high. In fact, there are more than one trillion bacteria in the skin, originating from approximately one thousand different species.’’
You can think of the microbiome as its’ own eco-system, working to keep the skin healthy and in good working condition.
What’s unique about the skin microbiome?
Each person’s microbiome is unique, and while some microbes can be found in everyone, others are determined by an individual’s genetics and lifestyle factors. New research is showing that the skin’s microbiome can be impacted by sleep, stress, diet and gastrointestinal health. What’s interesting too is that your skin’s microbiome can differ on different parts of your body—from your face to your feet.
While thinking about the trillions of microorganisms living on our skin, it’s important to remember that the majority of these microbes play an important role in keeping us healthy and skin looking radiant.
How does the microbiome benefit our skin?
A healthy microbiome helps protect your skin from unfriendly skin disorders – from stubborn blemishes, eczema, and premature wrinkling.
“Healthy” means that your skin has a large diverse collection of beneficial microflora whose existence helps outcompete unfriendly organisms, keeping skin disorders at bay. Your microbiome also plays an important role in managing your skin’s pH, producing nutrients and essential skin lipids.
The bottom line is that a healthy skin microbiome helps promote healthy, beautiful skin.
How Juice Beauty’s PREBIOTIX Collection benefits your skin microbiome
The microflora environment naturally found on the skin’s epidermis can become out of balance from harsh cleansers, pollution, heat, air conditioning, and more daily stressors.
That’s why at Juice Beauty we created the PREBIOTIX Collection, skincare that can bring the skin’s microbiome back into balance and optimize skin health and natural moisture levels and our first ingestible to help bring the gut’s microbiome into balance. We use breakthrough technology utilizing microbiome science and fermentation ingredients to drive the future of clean beauty.
PREBIOTIX Skincare Collection ingredients
The proprietary PREBIOTIX technology includes ultra-hydrating oils hundreds of times smaller than traditional oils combined with botanical fermented ingredients to create revolutionary lightweight & intensive formulas that prevent the early signs of aging. Juice Beauty’s technique was inspired by a Korean fermentation process, that creates smaller molecules which can help improve penetration & absorption.
Breakthrough PREBIOTIC Ingredients:
- Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, lactobacillus ferment, lactobacillus & coconut fruit extract work in combination to bring the skin’s microbiome back into balance, helping increase beneficial microflora
- Chia Seed: a natural polysaccharide isolated from the seed to provide long-term moisture to the skin
- Viola Tricolor: polysaccharides extracted from this flower help boost skin hydration and improve the skin’s barrier function
- Kumaru flower: polyphenols from seeds of the tree absorb light and emit light back to visibly help the skin glow
- Fermented Bamboo: a bio-chelated silica from bamboo provides a new sustainable plant-derived silicone alternative that is also rich in antioxidants
