There is a very deep connection between you, your skin, and your overall health. While your body is made up of multiple organs and organ systems, they work together as a beautiful whole.
Glowbiotics, a pioneer of probiotic skincare, is dedicated to taking care of your largest organ- your skin- through the innovative use of topical probiotics, or more specifically, probiotic derived bioactives.
What Can Topical Probiotics Do For Your Skin?
There are trillions of microorganisms that exist on your skin in a world called the microbiome. They're supposed to exist here. You actually want them here. Most of them are bacteria, and they play a huge beneficial role in how your skin behaves and its overall health. When things get out of balance, bad bacteria overtake these good bugs, and trouble arises.
With this imbalance in your skin's microbiome, inflammation can ensue, resulting in problems like redness and rosacea, eczema, atopic dermatitis, acne breakouts, sensitivities, and premature aging.
Probiotics are good bacteria that reset the balance. They can act as a protective shield and strengthen the skin's ability to repair itself. Because they help to return the skin to it's fully-functioning self, they help to optimize the skin's functionality so it's better able to develop collagen and elastin, which helps to prevent aging. With inflammation eliminated, the amount of flare-ups will be greatly reduced.
Are There Bacteria in My Skincare?
While probiotics are extremely beneficial to your skin, keeping them alive in your skincare products is a whole different issue. Because that's just it. In order for them to be viable and useful to you and your skin, the bacteria have to be kept alive, and that can be quite tricky. They need to be kept at just the right temperature (usually refrigerated), kept out of the light, kept away from contaminants, and they have to be fed!
Who's got time for that?! You're already taking care of yourself, your family, and your dog. How can you be expected to tend to the bugs, too?
What makes PDBs easy is that they offer the many benefits of the live probiotics, but don't have to be refrigerated, since they're non-living. That means you don't have to do anything special with them in your medicine cabinet.
We know you don't have that kind of time or energy, so we've harnessed the power of the good bugs and incorporated their magic into our proprietary Probiotic Derived Bioactives (PDBs).
What Are Probiotic Derived Bioactives?
PDBs are fragments of healthy non-living probiotics, instead of whole, live organisms. They're produced when body friendly bacteria is put through a special fermentation process. It's the parts of the bacteria plus enzymes and chemicals they produce which make them helpful for our skin. Knowing that, we can still incorporate what is necessary into our skin care products, without the muss-and-fuss of you worrying about how to keep your beneficial bugs safe and happy.
We can get a lot of really beneficial ingredients from the bacteria, all of which have a variety of positive impacts on the skin. Things like:
- Lipoteichoic acid
- Lactic acid
- Acetic acid
- Hyaluronic acid
- Hydrogen peroxide
These are able to do things like activate your innate and adaptive immunity, have antibacterial (against the bad bugs) effect, enhance the skin's barrier function, improve hydration, and promote wound healing. All that and a bag of salt-n-vinegar chips!
The Best of Everything
Glowbiotics is able to target the outward signs of aging and environmental damage by combining PDBs with advanced botanicals, prebiotics, natural ingredients, and vitamins that are able to reach deep in to the microbiome of the skin through our targeted delivery systems. That means your skin is able to start healing itself from the inside out. These formulations don't use any harsh chemicals or unhealthy ingredients like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, artificial dyes, or known cancer-causing ingredients.
We have the only skincare products formulated with these topical probiotics and other inflammation-inhibiting technologies that are specifically designed to avoid the bad inflammation and leverage the good. That way, we're able to address and improve many common concerns like acne, fine lines, wrinkles, hormonal breakouts, dry skin, sensitivities, and more!
