Probiotic Skin Care

Probiotic skin care makes use of good bacteria to maintain skin's microbiome – the ecosystem of bacteria in our bodies. Containing live cultures of "healthy" bacteria, these products serve a number of functions such as strengthening the skin barrier, preventing and soothing acne, maintaining skin's pH levels, firming and clarifying skin, and refining skin texture.

Unlike AHA, BHA or retinol which may cause hyper-photosensitivity or irritation, probiotics take a milder approach by supplying nutrients to skin and gradually improving its natural defense against free radicals and bad bacteria. Since probiotics are more symbiotic with the skin, they usually do not trigger irritations and are hence suitable for acne-prone and sensitive skin.

Probiotic skin care comes mostly as essences, ampoules and serums but can also include cleansers, toners and creams. Most probiotics in these products are obtained by fermentation, a process that also helps to make the nutrients in the ingredient easier to absorb into skin.

Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus and galactomyces are the most common probiotics in skin care. Secret Key's Starting Treatment Essence, for instance, is packed with galactomyces ferment filtrate. MISSHA's Time Revolution The First Essence 5X features bifida ferment lysate for anti-aging benefits, while NEOGEN's Probiotics Youth Repair Mist revitalizes skin with lactobacillus ferment lysate.

About Probiotic Skin Care & Benefits

What is probiotic skin care?

Probiotics are good bacteria beneficial to your health in multiple ways. Probiotic supplements are widely known to boost the immune system and gut health. Lately, scientific studies have also proven the benefits of probiotics on skin, so this ingredient’s use in beauty products is on an upward trend. Coming as cleansers, toners and moisturizers, probiotic skin care products contain live cultures of healthy bacteria that are either the same or similar to bacteria that already exist in our body.


What does probiotic skin care do?

Just like how probiotic supplements help improve the digestive system, topical probiotics help fend off free radicals and bad bacteria to maintain skin’s microbiome – the ecosystem of bacteria in our body. Probiotic skin care helps strengthen the skin barrier, prevent acne, reduce inflammation, maintain skin’s pH levels, boost skin elasticity and refine its appearance. The effects of each type of good bacteria vary from species to species. Formulation concentration, processing method (such as fermentation) and combination with other ingredients may also affect the performance of probiotics in skin care.


Why use probiotic skin care?

Since probiotics are more symbiotic with the skin, they usually do not cause irritation or disrupt the skin’s natural bacterial environment. Unlike chemicals such as AHA or BHA that may strip away both good and bad substances from skin, probiotics have milder effects as they supplement skin with what it needs and gradually improve its natural defense against environmental aggressors.


What skin types would benefit from probiotic skin care?

Probiotic skin care is suitable for all skin types including oily, dry, combination, sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin types. Those with sensitive skin or fungal acne can benefit most from these products since they help calm skin and restore its microbiome equilibrium.


Which probiotics are best for skin?

Microorganisms (a.k.a. microbes) include both fungi and bacteria. Many fermented foods and drinks are rich in live microbes, such as kombucha, kimchi, pickles, natto, miso, yogurt, kefir, sourdough and certain cheeses, to name a few. We usually consume them without knowing what probiotics or yeasts they contain. When it comes to skin care, however, the probiotics used are usually specified in the ingredient list. Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus and galactomyces are some of the most commonly used probiotics in skin care.


Bifidobacterium longum, one of 32 species of bifidobacteria, can be found in the human gastrointestinal tract. It produces lactic acid which is believed to inhibit the growth of pathogens. Instead of just the bacteria itself, its ferment (called bifida ferment lysate) is usually used in skin care. Bifida ferment lysate is the key anti-aging ingredient in Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. It helps repair damaged skin, promote healthy skin and deliver hydrating and soothing effects.


Lactobacillus, which has over 260 species, is found in the human digestive and female genital systems. Lactobacillus plantarum derived from plants is one of the most common types of lactobacilli, and it's used in yogurt, cheese and dairy products. In skin care, this ingredient diminishes dark spots and acne scars at a concentration of 5% in the formulation. Like bifidobacterium longum, lactobacilli produce lactic acid, which helps protect your skin against pathogens while providing it with nutrients. Lactobacillus is usually present in skin care as lactobacillus ferment filtrate.


Galactomyces is a group of fungi grown during the sake brewing process. Studies have shown that galactomyces ferment filtrate helps exfoliate skin, refine pores, control sebum production, brighten dull skin and prevent acne. SK-II’s patented name for galactomyces ferment filtrate is Pitera, the star ingredient behind the brand’s signature Facial Treatment Essence. Each bottle contains over 90% Pitera.


What is the relationship between probiotics and fermentation?

Even though ferments are a major source of probiotics, not all ferments qualify as probiotics, and not all probiotics take the form of ferments. Some skin care ingredients are fermented for other reasons besides just probiotic benefits. Fermentation breaks down the molecular structure of ingredients, making nutrients more concentrated and easier to absorb. This process helps produce additional amino acids to stimulate collagen production as well as antioxidants to fight against premature aging. Most fermented products are acidic, which helps exfoliate skin.


Prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics: What are the differences?

Probiotic skin care products normally contain a mix of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic ingredients. Probiotics are the microbes that you'd like to colonize on your skin to promote overall skin health. Prebiotics, such as beta-glucan and xylitol, are compounds that feed probiotic microbes; they ensure the microbes function properly when applied onto skin. Postbiotics are by-products from the metabolism of the living bacteria. Even though they’re not active bacteria, postbiotics, which can include probiotic lysates, ferments, filtrates, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides and vitamins, still perform similar functions as live bacteria.


Are probiotics vegan-friendly?

Probiotics made from fermentation of dairy products are not vegan. However, those made from kombucha, miso and non-dairy yogurt may be vegan. For example, Dr. Ceuracle’s Vegan Kombucha Tea Essence is formulated with 78% probiotic extracts from kombucha tea to balance skin’s oil-water levels, provide deep hydration, strengthen the skin barrier and boost skin health. The essence has a 15:85 oil-to-water ratio. The milky cream on top and clear brown essence at the bottom mix to form a milk tea-like solution.


Famous for using only essential ingredients in products, ONE THING offers a vegan-friendly Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate Toner packed with proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to clarify skin. The brand’s vegan Bifida Ferment Lysate Essence is also rich in proteins, lactose, lactic acid and vitamins to rejuvenate skin.


Probiotic skin care products

In Korea where fermented products like kimchi are regularly consumed, many people have embraced probiotic skin care, and probiotic skin care brands and lines are proliferating in the market. MISSHA and Secret Key are long-time advocates of probiotic skin care, while other Korean beauty brands such as NEOGEN, Benton, Manyo and ONE THING have also joined the game.


Probiotic facial cleansers

MAXCLINIC’s Pro Hyaluron Cleansing Foam is packed with eight types of probiotics including lactobacillus ferment lysate and bifida ferment lysate to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, keeping it bright and supple. If you’re looking for a quick way to remove makeup, try MIZON’s One Step Cleansing Water, which is formulated with lactobacillus ferment lysate, bifida ferment lysate and lactococcus ferment lysate (a ferment of another lactic acid bacteria).


Probiotic mists and essences

MISSHA’s Time Revolution line consists of cleansing water, essence, ampoule and sheet mask. Already in its fifth generation, the bestselling Time Revolution The First Essence 5X (formerly Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX) boasts 97% desert cica yeast ferment as well as bifida ferment lysate to improve skin tone and texture in just 14 days.


Secret Key’s Starting Treatment line includes a mist, essence, serum, face cream, eye cream and sheet mask. Its signature Starting Treatment Essence combines galactomyces ferment filtrate with cabbage rose water to soften and moisturize skin, and prepare it for better absorption of treatments used afterwards. This essence also promises to deliver results in 14 days.


NEOGEN’s Probiotics line offers a mist, toning pad, serum, emulsion, cream and sheet mask. Its Probiotics Youth Repair Mist contains SUPERPROBIOTICS™ consisting of 71ppm of lactobacillus ferment lysate and 7ppb of bifida ferment lysate, plus Tru-Skin Barrier™ and oil complex to lock in moisture. NEOGEN’s Dermalogy Real Ferment Micro Essence is also made of 93% fermented ingredients including bifida ferment lysate.


Other notable probiotic essences include SCINIC’s First Treatment Essence, COSRX’s Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence and PURITO’s Fermented Complex 94 Boosting Essence.


Probiotic serums

MISSHA’s Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X contains 77.2% Extreme Biome™, which is made of ten different probiotics fermented with the brand’s three-step Extreme Ferment α ™ method to optimize the ingredients’ efficacy.


NEOGEN’s Probiotics Double Action Serum is a double-barreled product consisting of two serums: the Probiotics Serum is charged with SUPERPROBIOTICS™ to hydrate and revitalize skin, while the Pro Barrier Action Serum is infused with ceramides and peptides to fortify a weakened skin barrier.


K-Drama fans might remember Manyo’s Bifida Complex Ampoule that appeared in the rom-com series Crash Landing on You. The formula is enriched with 90% bifidalaxcto complex and ginseng-derived saponin to reverse signs of aging. Its alternative, the Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule, contains five types of probiotics and ten kinds of hyaluronic acid to restore skin’s natural balance.


Other popular probiotic serums include SOME BY MI’s Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Serum, Isntree’s TW-Real Bifida Ampoule and iUNIK’s Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum.


Probiotic moisturizers

K-Beauty brand innisfree offers a Derma Formula Green Tea Probiotics Cream, which can be used as a day or night cream to nourish skin, thanks to the formula chock-full of fermented green tea lactic acid. When it comes to probiotic skin care for the eye area, look no further than Benton’s Fermentation Eye Cream. Galactomyces ferment filtrate and bifida ferment lysate work in conjunction with ceramide, EGF and hyaluronic acid in this bestseller to diminish wrinkles and relieve dryness.


Probiotic skin care for fungal acne

Probiotic skin care is beneficial to acne-prone skin. For topical probiotic spot treatment, try so natural’s Derma Plex Spot Tox or essen HERB’s Tea Tree Probiotics Spot Gel. Abib’s Yuja Probiotics Blemish Pad Vitalizing Touch can be used twice a week to exfoliate skin and reveal its clear and bright appearance. These triple-layered facial pads contain 25,000ppm of probiotics and 12,500ppm of yuja extract to fade dark spots and blemishes.

プロバイオティクス スキンケアとは?

プロバイオティクスは、様々な形で健康に役立つ善玉菌です。プロバイオティクスのサプリメントは、免疫システムと腸の健康を高めることで広く知られています。最近の科学研究では、プロバイオティクスの肌への効果も証明されており、美容製品への使用が増加傾向にあります。プロバイオティクス配合のスキンケア製品には、クレンジング、化粧水、保湿クリームなどがありますが、これらの製品には、私たちの体内にすでに存在しているバクテリアと同じ、または類似した健康なバクテリアが生きたまま培養されています。


プロバイオティクス スキンケアにはどのような効果がありますか?

プロバイオティクスのサプリメントが消化器系の改善に役立つように、局所的なプロバイオティクスはフリーラジカルや悪玉菌を撃退し、肌のマイクロバイオーム(体内の細菌の生態系)を維持します。プロバイオティクスを用いたスキンケアは、肌のバリアを強化し、ニキビを防ぎ、炎症を抑え、肌のpHレベルを維持し、弾力性を高め、肌を整えます。善玉菌の種類によって、その効果は異なります。また、配合濃度、加工方法(発酵など)、他の成分との組み合わせによっても、プロバイオティクスのスキンケアにおけるパフォーマンスに影響を与える可能性があります。


なぜプロバイオティクス スキンケアを使うのか?

プロバイオティクスは肌との共生を目的としているため、通常、肌に刺激を与えたり、肌の自然な細菌環境を乱したりすることはありません。AHAやBHAのような化学物質は、肌に良いものも悪いものも取り除いてしまう可能性がありますが、プロバイオティクスは、肌に必要なものを補い、環境からの攻撃に対する自然な防御力を徐々に高めていくため、より穏やかな効果が期待できます。


プロバイオティクス スキンケアにおすすめな肌タイプは?

プロバイオティクス スキンケアは、オイリー肌、乾燥肌、混合肌、敏感肌、ニキビ肌など、すべてのタイプの肌におすすめします。敏感肌の方や真菌性のニキビがある方は、肌を落ち着かせ、マイクロバイオームの均衡を取り戻すことができるので、これらの製品から最も恩恵を受けることができます。


肌に良いプロバイオティクスは?

微生物には、菌類と細菌類があります。コンブチャ、キムチ、漬物、納豆、味噌、ヨーグルト、ケフィア、サワードウ、チーズなど、多くの発酵食品や飲料には生きた微生物が豊富に含まれています。私たちは普段、それらにどのようなプロバイオティクスや酵母が含まれているかを知らずに摂取しています。しかし、スキンケアの場合は、成分表にプロバイオティクスが明記されていることがほとんどです。ビフィズス菌、乳酸菌、ガラクトミセスなどは、スキンケアによく使われるプロバイオティクスである。


ビフィズス菌の32種のうちの一つであるビフィドバクテリウム・ロンガムは、人の消化管に存在します。病原菌の増殖を抑制するとされる乳酸を産生します。菌そのものではなく、その発酵物(ビフィズス菌発酵液とも呼ばれる)をスキンケアに使用するのが一般的です。ビフィズス菌発酵液は、Estee Lauderのアドバンス ナイト リペアの主要なアンチエイジング成分です。ダメージを受けた肌を修復し、健康な肌を促進し、潤いと鎮静効果をもたらします。


260種以上ある乳酸菌は、人間の消化器系や女性の生殖器系に生息しています。植物由来のプランタルム菌は乳酸菌の中でも代表的な種類で、ヨーグルトやチーズ、乳製品などに使用されています。スキンケアでは、この成分が製剤中の5%の濃度で、黒ずみやニキビ跡を目立たなくします。ビフィドバクテリウム・ロンガムと同様に、乳酸を生成する乳酸菌は、肌に栄養を与えながら病原菌から肌を守る働きをします。乳酸菌は通常、乳酸菌発酵液の濾液としてスキンケアに配合されています。


ガラクトミセスは、日本酒の醸造過程で増殖する菌類の一群です。ガラクトミセス発酵液は、肌の角質を取り除き、毛穴をきれいにし、皮脂の分泌をコントロールし、くすんだ肌を明るくし、ニキビを防ぐ効果があるという研究結果が出ています。COSRXの95%濃縮されたガラクトミセス発酵液を使用しているガラクトミセス95 トーンバランシング エッセンスは透明感のある、輝いて潤いのある肌に導きます。


プロバイオティクスと発酵の関係は?

発酵食品はプロバイオティクスの主要な供給源ですが、すべての発酵食品がプロバイオティクスに該当するわけではありませんし、すべてのプロバイオティクスが発酵物の形をとっているわけでもありません。発酵は、成分の分子構造を破壊し、栄養素をより濃縮して吸収しやすくします。このプロセスは、コラーゲンの生成を促す追加のアミノ酸や、早期老化に対抗する抗酸化物質の生成を助けます。ほとんどの発酵製品は酸性なので、肌の角質を取り除くのに役立ちます。


プレバイオティクス、プロバイオティクスとポストバイオティクス、その違いは何ですか?

プロバイオティクスを配合したスキンケア製品には、通常、プレバイオティクス、プロバイオティクス、ポストバイオティクスの各成分が配合されています。プロバイオティクスとは、肌全体の健康を促進するために肌に定着させたい微生物のことです。βグルカンやキシリトールなどのプレバイオティクスは、プロバイオティクスを構成する微生物のエサとなる化合物で、肌に塗布したときに微生物が適切に機能するようにします。ポストバイオティクスは、生きているバクテリアの代謝による副産物です。ポストバイオティクスには、プロバイオティクスの溶解物、発酵物、ろ過物、ヒアルロン酸、ペプチド、セラミド、ビタミンなどが含まれますが、これらは活性細菌ではなくても、生きた細菌と同様の機能を果たします。


プロバイオティクスはヴィーガンですか?

乳製品を発酵させて作ったプロバイオティクスはヴィーガンではありません。しかし、コンブチャ、味噌、非乳製品のヨーグルトから作られたものは、ヴィーガンである可能性があります。例えば、Dr. Ceuracleのヴィーガンコンブチャ茶エッセンスは、コンブチャ茶から抽出したプロバイオティクスエキスを78%配合し、肌の油分と水分のバランスを整え、深い潤いを与え、肌のバリアを強化し、肌の健康を促進します。エッセンスの油分と水分の比率は15:85です。上部の乳白色のクリームと下部の透明な茶色のエッセンスが混ざり合い、ミルクティーのような溶液になります。


必要な成分のみを使用していることで有名なONE THINGでは、ヴィーガン対応のガラクトミセス発酵糸状体化粧水に、タンパク質、アミノ酸、ビタミン、ミネラルを配合し、肌に透明感を与えます。また、ヴィーガン対応のビフィズス菌発酵液エッセンスには、タンパク質、乳糖、乳酸、ビタミンなどが豊富に含まれており、肌を若返らせます。


プロバイオティクス スキンケア製品

キムチなどの発酵食品が日常的に食べられている韓国では、多くの人がプロバイオティクス スキンケアを受け入れており、プロバイオティクス スキンケアのブランドやラインが市場に増殖しています。MISSHAやSecret Keyなどがプロバイオティクス スキンケアを提唱していますが、NEOGEN、Benton、Manyo、ONE THINGなどの韓国の美容ブランドもこの斬新なスキンケアの製品をてい提供しております。


プロバイオティクス配合の洗顔料

MAXCLINICのプロヒアルロンクレンジングフォームは、乳酸菌発酵液やビフィズス菌発酵液など8種類のプロバイオティクスを配合し、肌本来のバリア機能を強化して、明るくしなやかな肌を保ちます。手早くメイクを落としたい方は、乳酸菌発酵液、ビフィズス菌発酵液、乳酸球菌発酵液(他の乳酸菌の発酵液)を配合したMIZONのワンステップクレンジングウォーターをお試しください。


プロバイオティクスのミスト&エッセンス

MISSHAのタイムレボリューション シリーズは、クレンジングウォーター、エッセンス、アンプル、シートマスクの4つのラインで構成されています。すでに5代目となる人気商品のタイムレボリューション ザ ファースト エッセンス 5X(旧タイムレボリューション ザ ファースト トリートメント エッセンス RX)は、97%の砂漠酵母とビフィズス菌発酵液を配合し、わずか14日間で肌のトーンとキメを整えます。


Secret Keyのスターティングトリートメント シリーズは、ミスト、エッセンス、美容液、フェイスクリーム、アイクリーム、シートマスクのライン。シグネチャーアイテムであるスターティング トリートメント エッセンスは、ガラクトミセス発酵ろ過物とキャベツ ローズ ウォーターを配合し、肌を柔らかくして潤いを与え、その後に使用するトリートメントの吸収を良くするために肌を整えます。また、このエッセンスは14日間で結果を出すことを約束します。


NEOGENのプロバイオティクスシリーズには、ミスト、トーニングパッド、美容液、エマルジョン、クリーム、シートマスクがあります。プロバイオティクス ユースリペア ミストには、71ppmの乳酸菌発酵液と7ppbのビフィズス菌発酵液からなるSUPERPROBIOTICS™と、潤いを閉じ込めるTru-Skin Barrier™とオイルコンプレックスが配合されています。NEOGENのダーマロジーリアルファーメントマイクロエッセンスも、ビフィズス菌発酵液をはじめとする発酵成分を93%配合しています。


その他、プロバイオティクスエッセンスとしては、SCINICのファーストトリートメントエッセンス、PURITOの発酵コンプレックス94ブースティングエッセンスなどが注目されています。


プロバイオティクス美容液

MISSHAのタイムレボリューション ナイトリペア美容液5Xには、10種類のプロバイオティクスを同ブランドの3ステップエクストリームファーメント α™で発酵させ、成分の効果を最適化したエクストリームバイオーム™が77.2%配合されています。

What is probiotic skin care?

Probiotics are good bacteria beneficial to your health in multiple ways. Probiotic supplements are widely known to boost the immune system and gut health. Lately, scientific studies have also proven the benefits of probiotics on skin, so this ingredient’s use in beauty products is on an upward trend. Coming as cleansers, toners and moisturizers, probiotic skin care products contain live cultures of healthy bacteria that are either the same or similar to bacteria that already exist in our body.


What does probiotic skin care do?

Just like how probiotic supplements help improve the digestive system, topical probiotics help fend off free radicals and bad bacteria to maintain skin’s microbiome – the ecosystem of bacteria in our body. Probiotic skin care helps strengthen the skin barrier, prevent acne, reduce inflammation, maintain skin’s pH levels, boost skin elasticity and refine its appearance. The effects of each type of good bacteria vary from species to species. Formulation concentration, processing method (such as fermentation) and combination with other ingredients may also affect the performance of probiotics in skin care.


Why use probiotic skin care?

Since probiotics are more symbiotic with the skin, they usually do not cause irritation or disrupt the skin’s natural bacterial environment. Unlike chemicals such as AHA or BHA that may strip away both good and bad substances from skin, probiotics have milder effects as they supplement skin with what it needs and gradually improve its natural defense against environmental aggressors.


What skin types would benefit from probiotic skin care?

Probiotic skin care is suitable for all skin types including oily, dry, combination, sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin types. Those with sensitive skin or fungal acne can benefit most from these products since they help calm skin and restore its microbiome equilibrium.


Which probiotics are best for skin?

Microorganisms (a.k.a. microbes) include both fungi and bacteria. Many fermented foods and drinks are rich in live microbes, such as kombucha, kimchi, pickles, natto, miso, yogurt, kefir, sourdough and certain cheeses, to name a few. We usually consume them without knowing what probiotics or yeasts they contain. When it comes to skin care, however, the probiotics used are usually specified in the ingredient list. Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus and galactomyces are some of the most commonly used probiotics in skin care.


Bifidobacterium longum, one of 32 species of bifidobacteria, can be found in the human gastrointestinal tract. It produces lactic acid which is believed to inhibit the growth of pathogens. Instead of just the bacteria itself, its ferment (called bifida ferment lysate) is usually used in skin care. Bifida ferment lysate is the key anti-aging ingredient in Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. It helps repair damaged skin, promote healthy skin and deliver hydrating and soothing effects.


Lactobacillus, which has over 260 species, is found in the human digestive and female genital systems. Lactobacillus plantarum derived from plants is one of the most common types of lactobacilli, and it's used in yogurt, cheese and dairy products. In skin care, this ingredient diminishes dark spots and acne scars at a concentration of 5% in the formulation. Like bifidobacterium longum, lactobacilli produce lactic acid, which helps protect your skin against pathogens while providing it with nutrients. Lactobacillus is usually present in skin care as lactobacillus ferment filtrate.


Galactomyces is a group of fungi grown during the sake brewing process. Studies have shown that galactomyces ferment filtrate helps exfoliate skin, refine pores, control sebum production, brighten dull skin and prevent acne. SK-II’s patented name for galactomyces ferment filtrate is Pitera, the star ingredient behind the brand’s signature Facial Treatment Essence. Each bottle contains over 90% Pitera.


What is the relationship between probiotics and fermentation?

Even though ferments are a major source of probiotics, not all ferments qualify as probiotics, and not all probiotics take the form of ferments. Some skin care ingredients are fermented for other reasons besides just probiotic benefits. Fermentation breaks down the molecular structure of ingredients, making nutrients more concentrated and easier to absorb. This process helps produce additional amino acids to stimulate collagen production as well as antioxidants to fight against premature aging. Most fermented products are acidic, which helps exfoliate skin.


Prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics: What are the differences?

Probiotic skin care products normally contain a mix of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic ingredients. Probiotics are the microbes that you'd like to colonize on your skin to promote overall skin health. Prebiotics, such as beta-glucan and xylitol, are compounds that feed probiotic microbes; they ensure the microbes function properly when applied onto skin. Postbiotics are by-products from the metabolism of the living bacteria. Even though they’re not active bacteria, postbiotics, which can include probiotic lysates, ferments, filtrates, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides and vitamins, still perform similar functions as live bacteria.


Are probiotics vegan-friendly?

Probiotics made from fermentation of dairy products are not vegan. However, those made from kombucha, miso and non-dairy yogurt may be vegan. For example, Dr. Ceuracle’s Vegan Kombucha Tea Essence is formulated with 78% probiotic extracts from kombucha tea to balance skin’s oil-water levels, provide deep hydration, strengthen the skin barrier and boost skin health. The essence has a 15:85 oil-to-water ratio. The milky cream on top and clear brown essence at the bottom mix to form a milk tea-like solution.


Famous for using only essential ingredients in products, ONE THING offers a vegan-friendly Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate Toner packed with proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to clarify skin. The brand’s vegan Bifida Ferment Lysate Essence is also rich in proteins, lactose, lactic acid and vitamins to rejuvenate skin.


Probiotic skin care products

In Korea where fermented products like kimchi are regularly consumed, many people have embraced probiotic skin care, and probiotic skin care brands and lines are proliferating in the market. MISSHA and Secret Key are long-time advocates of probiotic skin care, while other Korean beauty brands such as NEOGEN, Benton, Manyo and ONE THING have also joined the game.


Probiotic facial cleansers

MAXCLINIC’s Pro Hyaluron Cleansing Foam is packed with eight types of probiotics including lactobacillus ferment lysate and bifida ferment lysate to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, keeping it bright and supple. If you’re looking for a quick way to remove makeup, try MIZON’s One Step Cleansing Water, which is formulated with lactobacillus ferment lysate, bifida ferment lysate and lactococcus ferment lysate (a ferment of another lactic acid bacteria).


Probiotic mists and essences

MISSHA’s Time Revolution line consists of cleansing water, essence, ampoule and sheet mask. Already in its fifth generation, the bestselling Time Revolution The First Essence 5X (formerly Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX) boasts 97% desert cica yeast ferment as well as bifida ferment lysate to improve skin tone and texture in just 14 days.


Secret Key’s Starting Treatment line includes a mist, essence, serum, face cream, eye cream and sheet mask. Its signature Starting Treatment Essence combines galactomyces ferment filtrate with cabbage rose water to soften and moisturize skin, and prepare it for better absorption of treatments used afterwards. This essence also promises to deliver results in 14 days.


NEOGEN’s Probiotics line offers a mist, toning pad, serum, emulsion, cream and sheet mask. Its Probiotics Youth Repair Mist contains SUPERPROBIOTICS™ consisting of 71ppm of lactobacillus ferment lysate and 7ppb of bifida ferment lysate, plus Tru-Skin Barrier™ and oil complex to lock in moisture. NEOGEN’s Dermalogy Real Ferment Micro Essence is also made of 93% fermented ingredients including bifida ferment lysate.


Other notable probiotic essences include SCINIC’s First Treatment Essence, COSRX’s Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence and PURITO’s Fermented Complex 94 Boosting Essence.


Probiotic serums

MISSHA’s Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X contains 77.2% Extreme Biome™, which is made of ten different probiotics fermented with the brand’s three-step Extreme Ferment α ™ method to optimize the ingredients’ efficacy.


NEOGEN’s Probiotics Double Action Serum is a double-barreled product consisting of two serums: the Probiotics Serum is charged with SUPERPROBIOTICS™ to hydrate and revitalize skin, while the Pro Barrier Action Serum is infused with ceramides and peptides to fortify a weakened skin barrier.


K-Drama fans might remember Manyo’s Bifida Complex Ampoule that appeared in the rom-com series Crash Landing on You. The formula is enriched with 90% bifidalaxcto complex and ginseng-derived saponin to reverse signs of aging. Its alternative, the Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule, contains five types of probiotics and ten kinds of hyaluronic acid to restore skin’s natural balance.


Other popular probiotic serums include SOME BY MI’s Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Serum, Isntree’s TW-Real Bifida Ampoule and iUNIK’s Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum.


Probiotic moisturizers

K-Beauty brand innisfree offers a Derma Formula Green Tea Probiotics Cream, which can be used as a day or night cream to nourish skin, thanks to the formula chock-full of fermented green tea lactic acid.

Galactomyces ferment filtrate and bifida ferment lysate work in conjunction with ceramide, EGF and hyaluronic acid in this bestseller to diminish wrinkles and relieve dryness.


Probiotic skin care for fungal acne

Probiotic skin care is beneficial to acne-prone skin. For topical probiotic spot treatment, try so natural’s Derma Plex Spot Tox or essen HERB’s Tea Tree Probiotics Spot Gel. Abib’s Yuja Probiotics Blemish Pad Vitalizing Touch can be used twice a week to exfoliate skin and reveal its clear and bright appearance. These triple-layered facial pads contain 25,000ppm of probiotics and 12,500ppm of yuja extract to fade dark spots and blemishes.


Qu'est-ce qu'un soin aux probiotiques ?

Les probiotiques sont des bactéries bonnes pour la santé, qui offrent de nombreux bienfaits. Les compléments alimentaires aux probiotiques sont reconnus pour stimuler le système immunitaire et maintenir les intestins en bonne santé. Récemment, des études scientifiques ont démontré les bienfaits des probiotiques sur la peau. Cet ingrédient est donc de plus en plus utilisé dans les produits de beauté. Disponibles sous forme de nettoyants, de toniques et de soins hydratants, les produits de soin aux probiotiques contiennent des cultures vivantes de bonnes bactéries, qui sont les mêmes ou des bactéries similaires à celles déjà présentes dans notre organisme.


À quoi sert un soin aux probiotiques ?

De la même manière que les compléments alimentaires aux probiotiques sont bénéfiques pour le système digestif, les probiotiques topiques aident à combattre les radicaux libres et les mauvaises bactéries, afin de préserver le microbiome (l'écosystème de bactéries dans notre organisme) de la peau. Les soins aux probiotiques aident à renforcer la barrière cutanée, à prévenir l'acné, à réduire les inflammations, à maintenir le pH naturel de la peau, à booster son élasticité et à affiner le grain de peau. Les effets de chaque type de bonnes bactéries varient d'une espèce à l'autre. D'autres facteurs tels que la concentration de la formule, la méthode de traitement (par exemple, par fermentation) et l'association à d'autres ingrédients peuvent également affecter la performance des probiotiques présents dans les produits de soin.


Les soins aux probiotiques : pour quoi faire ?

Puisque les probiotiques sont plus symbiotiques avec la peau, ils ne provoquent généralement pas d'irritations et ne perturbent pas l'environnement bactérien naturel de la peau. Contrairement à des agents chimiques tels que les AHA ou les BHA, qui peuvent éliminer les bonnes comme les mauvaises substances présentes sur la peau, les probiotiques sont plus doux, car ils apportent à la peau ce dont elle a besoin et améliorent progressivement ses défenses naturelles contre les agressions extérieures.


Les soins aux probiotiques : pour quels types de peaux ?

Les soins aux probiotiques conviennent à tous les types de peaux, qu'elles soient grasses, sèches, mixtes, sensibles, à tendance acnéique ou matures. Cependant, ces produits sont particulièrement idéaux pour les peaux sensibles ou sujettes à l'acné fongique, puisqu'ils aident à apaiser la peau et à restaurer l'équilibre du microbiome cutané.


Quels sont les meilleurs probiotiques pour la peau ?

Les micro-organismes (ou microbes) incluent les champignons et les bactéries. De nombreux aliments et boissons fermentés sont riches en microbes vivants, notamment le kombucha, le kimchi, les cornichons, le nattō, le miso, le yaourt, le kéfir, le levain ou encore certains fromages, pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns. Nous les consommons généralement sans même savoir quels probiotiques ou quelles levures ils contiennent. En ce qui concerne les produits de soin du visage, en revanche, les probiotiques utilisés figurent généralement dans la liste des ingrédients. Le bifidobacterium longum, le lactobacille et les galactomyces font partie des probiotiques les plus couramment utilisés dans les produits de soin.


Le bifidobacterium longum, l'une des 32 espèces de bifidobactéries, est naturellement présent dans le tube digestif humain. Il produit de l'acide lactique, qui est considéré comme un agent permettant d'inhiber la croissance des agents pathogènes. C'est généralement sont ferment (appelé « lysat de ferment de bifida ») qui est utilisé dans les produits de soin, au lieu de la bactérie elle-même. Le lysat de ferment de bifida est l'ingrédient anti-âge clé du sérum Advanced Night Repair de chez Estée Lauder. Il aide à réparer les peaux endommagées, pour une peau hydratée, apaisée et visiblement plus saine.


Le lactobacille, qui couvre plus de 260 espèces, est naturellement présent dans le tube digestif humain et dans l'appareil génital féminin. Le lactobacillus plantarum dérivé des plantes est l'un des lactobacilles les plus courants. On le retrouve notamment dans les yaourts, dans le fromage et dans les produits laitiers. Dans les produits de soin du visage, cet ingrédient permet d'atténuer les taches sombres et les cicatrices d'acné lorsqu'il est utilisé à une concentration de 5 % de la formule. Tout comme le bifidobacterium longum, les lactobacilles produisent de l'acide lactique, qui aide à protéger votre peau des agents pathogènes tout en la nourrissant. Le lactobacille est généralement présent dans les produits de soin sous la forme de filtrat de ferment de lactobacille.


Les galactomyces constituent un groupe de champignons qui poussent lors du processus de brassage du saké. Des études ont démontré que le filtrat de ferment de galactomyces aide à exfolier la peau, à resserrer les pores, à réguler la production de sébum, à illuminer les teints ternes et à prévenir l'acné. Le nom breveté de SK-II pour le filtrat de ferment de galactomyces est le Pitera, l'ingrédient phare de l'essence Facial Treatment emblématique de la marque. Chaque flacon de ce produit contient plus de 90 % de Pitera.


Quel est le lien entre probiotiques et fermentation ?

Bien que les ferments soient une source majeure de probiotiques, tous les ferments n'entrent pas dans la catégorie des probiotiques, et tous les probiotiques ne prennent pas forcément la forme de ferments. Certains ingrédients de soin sont fermentés pour d'autres raisons que les seuls bienfaits des probiotiques. La fermentation permet de casser la structure moléculaire des ingrédients, ce qui rend les nutriments plus concentrés et plus faciles à absorber. Ce processus permet de produire plus d'acides aminés pour stimuler la production de collagène, ainsi que des antioxydants pour prévenir le vieillissement prématuré de la peau. La plupart des produits fermentés ont un pH acide, ce qui permet d'exfolier la peau.


Prébiotiques, probiotiques et postbiotiques : quelle est la différence ?

Les produits de soin aux probiotiques contiennent généralement un mélange de prébiotiques, de probiotiques et de postbiotiques. Les probiotiques sont les microbes qui entretiennent la bonne santé générale de notre peau lorsqu'ils la colonisent. Les prébiotiques, tels que le bêta-glucane ou le xylitol, sont des composés dont se nourrissent les microbes probiotiques. Ils permettent d'assurer que les microbes fonctionnent correctement lorsque vous les appliquez sur votre peau. Les postbiotiques sont des produits dérivés du métabolisme des bactéries vivantes. Même s'il ne s'agit pas de bactéries actives, les postbiotiques remplissent des fonctions très similaires à celles des bactéries vivantes. Cette catégorie inclut notamment les lysats de probiotiques, les ferments, les filtrats, l'acide hyaluronique, les peptides, les céramides et les vitamines.


Les probiotiques sont-ils des ingrédients végans ?

Les probiotiques issus de la fermentation des produits laitiers ne sont pas végans. Cependant, ceux qui proviennent du kombucha, du miso ou des yaourts sans lait d'origine animale peuvent être végans. Par exemple, l'essence végane au thé de kombucha de chez Dr. Ceuracle est formulée à 78 % à base d'extraits de probiotiques issus du thé de kombucha, pour restaurer l'équilibre hydrolipidique de la peau, l'hydrater en profondeur et renforcer la barrière cutanée, pour une peau pleine de santé. Cette essence présente un ratio huile/eau de 15/85. Sa crème laiteuse en haut et son essence brun clair en bas se mélangent pour former une solution de type thé au lait.


Connue pour n'utiliser que des ingrédients essentiels dans ses produits, la marque ONE THING propose un tonique végan au filtrat de ferment de galactomyces enrichi en protéines, en acides aminés, en vitamines et en minéraux pour éclaircir la peau. L'essence végane au lysat de ferment de bifida de la marque est également riche en protéines, en lactose, en acide lactique et en vitamines pour rajeunir la peau.


Quels sont les meilleurs produits de soin aux probiotiques ?

En Corée où des produits fermentés tels que le kimchi sont régulièrement consommés, de très nombreuses personnes ont adopté les produits de soin aux probiotiques, et les marques et gammes proposant ce type de produits sont en plein essor sur le marché. MISSHA et Secret Key sont des partisanes de toujours des soins aux probiotiques, tandis que d'autres marques de beauté coréennes telles que NEOGEN, Benton, Manyo et ONE THING se sont également lancées dans le développement de tels produits.


Les nettoyants pour le visage aux probiotiques

La mousse nettoyante Pro Hyaluron de chez MAXCLINIC est enrichie en huit types de probiotiques, notamment en lysat de ferment de lactobacille et en lysat de ferment de bifida, qui renforcent la barrière cutanée, pour une peau souple et lumineuse. Si vous recherchez un moyen rapide de vous démaquiller, testez la lotion nettoyante One Step de chez MIZON, qui est formulée à base de lysat de ferment de lactobacille, de lysat de ferment de bifida et de lysat de ferment de lactocoque (un ferment issu d'une autre bactérie à acide lactique).


Les brumes et essences aux probiotiques

La gamme Time Revolution de chez MISSHA comprend un lotion nettoyante, une essence, un sérum et un masque en tissu. La cultissime essence The First Essence 5X Time Revolution (anciennement The First Treatment Essence RX Time Revolution), qui en est déjà à sa quatrième reformulation, contient pas moins de 97 % d'extrait de levure fermentée, ainsi que du lysat de ferment de bifida, pour illuminer le teint et affiner le grain de peau en seulement 14 jours.


La gamme Starting Treatment de chez Secret Key comprend une brume, une essence, un sérum, une crème pour le visage, une crème contour des yeux et un masque en tissu. Son essence Starting Treatment emblématique combine les bienfaits du filtrat de ferment de galactomyces à ceux de l'eau de rose à cent feuilles pour adoucir, hydrater et préparer la peau à l'application des soins suivants. Cette essence promet également des résultats en seulement 14 jours.


La gamme aux probiotiques de chez NEOGEN comprend une brume, des compresses imbibées de tonique, un sérum, une émulsion, une crème et un masque en tissu. Sa brume réparatrice jeunesse aux probiotiques contient l'ingrédient breveté SUPERPROBIOTICS™, composé de 71 ppm de lysat de ferment de lactobacille et de 7 ppb de lysat de ferment de bifida, ainsi que l'ingrédient breveté Tru-Skin Barrierr™, et un complexe d'huiles pour capturer l'hydratation au sein de la peau. L'essence Real Ferment Micro Dermalogy de chez NEOGEN est également composée à 93 % d'ingrédients fermentés, notamment de lysat de ferment de bifida.


L'essence First Treatment de chez SCINIC, l'essence rééquilibrante et illuminatrice aux galactomyces (95 %) de chez COSRX et l'essence stimulante au complexe d'ingrédients fermentés (94 %) de chez PURITO sont également des essences aux probiotiques très appréciées.


Les sérums aux probiotiques

Le sérum de nuit réparateur 5X Time Revolution de chez MISSHA contient 77,2 % d'ingrédient breveté Extreme Biome™, composé de dix types de probiotiques différents, qui sont fermentés via la méthode en trois étapes brevetée de la marque Extreme Ferment α ™, pour optimiser l'efficacité des ingrédients.


Le sérum 2-en-1 aux probiotiques de chez NEOGEN est un produit double emploi composé de deux sérums : le sérum aux probiotiques est enrichi en ingrédient breveté SUPERPROBIOTICS™ pour hydrater et revitaliser la peau, tandis que le sérum Pro Barrier Action est enrichi en céramides et en peptides pour renforcer la barrière cutanée.


Les fans de dramas coréens se souviendront peut-être du sérum au complexe de bifida de chez Manyo, qui est apparu dans la série romantique Crash Landing on You. Sa formule est enrichie à 90 % en complexe de bifidalacto et en saponine dérivée du ginseng, pour lutter contre les signes de l'âge. Son alter-ego, le sérum au complexe Bifida Biome, contient cinq types de probiotiques et dix types d'acide hyaluronique, pour restaurer l'équilibre naturel de la peau.


Le sérum illuminateur à la vitamine C pure et aux galactomyces de chez SOME BY MI, le sérum TW-Real Bifida de chez Isntree et le sérum Rose Galactomyces Synergy de chez iUNIK sont également des sérums aux probiotiques très populaires.


Les soins hydratants aux probiotiques

La marque de K-beauty innisfree propose une crème au thé vert et aux probiotiques Derma Formula, qui peut être utilisée aussi bien comme crème de jour que de nuit pour nourrir la peau, grâce à sa formule qui est un condensé d'acide lactique de thé vert fermenté.


En ce qui concerne les soins aux probiotiques pour le contour des yeux, la crème contour des yeux Fermentation culte de chez Benton sera votre meilleur allié ! Son filtrat de ferment de galactomyces et son lysat de ferment de bifida fonctionnent en synergie avec son céramide, son facteur de croissance épidermique (epidermal growth factor, EGF) et son acide hyaluronique pour réduire les rides et soulager les sécheresses.


Les soins aux probiotiques pour le traitement de l'acné fongique

Pour un traitement topique anti-boutons aux probiotiques, testez le traitement anti-boutons Spot Tox Derma Plex de chez so natural, ou bien le gel anti-boutons à l'arbre à thé et aux probiotiques de chez essen HERB. Enfin, les compresses anti-imperfections et revitalisantes au yuzu et aux probiotiques Vitalizing Touch de chez Abib peuvent être utilisées deux fois par semaine pour exfolier la peau, la laissant claire et lumineuse. Ces compresses triple épaisseur pour le visage contiennent 25 000 ppm de probiotiques et 12 500 ppm d'extrait de yuzu pour atténuer les taches sombres et les imperfections.


Was ist probiotische Hautpflege?

Probiotika sind gute Bakterien, die für deine Gesundheit in vielerlei Hinsicht von Vorteil sind. Probiotische Nahrungsergänzungsmittel sind allgemein dafür bekannt, das Immunsystem und die Darmgesundheit zu stärken. In letzter Zeit haben wissenschaftliche Studien auch die Vorteile von Probiotika für die Haut nachgewiesen, sodass die Verwendung dieses Inhaltsstoffs in Beauty-Produkten auf dem Vormarsch ist. Probiotische Hautpflegeprodukte sind unter anderem als Gesichtsreiniger, Toner und Feuchtigkeitscremes erhältlich und enthalten lebende Kulturen gesunder Bakterien, die entweder gleich oder ähnlich zu Bakterien sind, welche bereits in unserem Körper vorhanden sind.


Was bewirkt die probiotische Hautpflege?

So wie probiotische Nahrungsergänzungsmittel zur Verbesserung des Verdauungssystems beitragen, helfen topische Probiotika, freie Radikale und schädliche Bakterien abzuwehren, um das Mikrobiom der Haut – das Ökosystem der Bakterien in unserem Körper – zu erhalten. Probiotische Hautpflege hilft, die Hautbarriere zu stärken, Akne vorzubeugen, Entzündungen zu reduzieren, den pH-Wert der Haut zu erhalten, die Hautelastizität zu steigern und ihr Aussehen zu verfeinern. Die Wirkungen jeder Art von guten Bakterien variieren von Spezies zu Spezies. So z.B. können die Konzentration in der Formulierung, die Verarbeitungsmethode (wie Fermentation) und die Kombination mit anderen Inhaltsstoffen ebenfalls die Leistung von Probiotika in der Hautpflege beeinflussen.


Warum sollte man probiotische Hautpflege verwenden?

Da Probiotika eher mit der Haut symbiotisch sind, verursachen sie normalerweise keine Reizungen oder stören nicht das natürliche Bakterienmilieu der Haut. Im Gegensatz zu Chemikalien wie AHA oder BHA, die sowohl gute als auch schlechte Substanzen von der Haut entfernen können, haben Probiotika eine mildere Wirkung, da sie die Haut mit dem versorgen, was sie braucht und ihre natürliche Abwehr gegen Umweltagressoren schrittweise verbessern.


Welche Hauttypen können von der probiotischen Hautpflege profitieren?

Probiotische Hautpflege ist für alle Hauttypen geeignet, einschließlich fettiger oder trockener Haut, Mischhaut, empfindlicher Haut, zu Akne neigender oder reifer Haut. Personen mit empfindlicher Haut oder Pilzakne können am meisten von diesen Produkten profitieren, da sie helfen, die Haut zu beruhigen und ihr Mikrobiom-Gleichgewicht wiederherzustellen.


Welche Probiotika sind für die Haut am besten?

Mikroorganismen (auch bekannt als Mikroben) umfassen sowohl Pilze als auch Bakterien. Viele fermentierte Lebensmittel und Getränke sind reich an lebenden Mikroben wie z.B. Kombucha, Kimchi, Gurken, Natto, Miso, Joghurt, Kefir, Sauerteig und bestimmte Käsesorten. Wir konsumieren sie normalerweise ohne zu wissen, welche Probiotika oder Hefen sie enthalten. Bei der Hautpflege sind die verwendeten Probiotika jedoch meist in der Inhaltsstoffliste angegeben. Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus und Galaktomyces sind einige der am häufigsten verwendeten Probiotika in der Hautpflege.


Bifidobacterium longum, eine von 32 Arten von Bifidobakterien, die im menschlichen Magen-Darm-Trakt vorkommt. Dieses Bakterium produziert Milchsäure, von der angenommen wird, dass sie das Wachstum von Krankheitserregern hemmt. Auch im Bereich der Hautpflege werden nicht die Bakterien selbst, sondern ihr Ferment (das sogenannte Bifida-Ferment-Lysat) verwendet. Bifida-Ferment-Lysat ist der wichtigste Anti-Aging-Wirkstoff in Estee Lauders Advanced Night Repair. Es hilft, geschädigte Haut zu reparieren, eine gesunde Haut zu fördern und eine feuchtigkeitsspendende sowie beruhigende Wirkung zu erzielen.


Mit über 260 Arten kommt Lactobacillus im menschlichen Verdauungssystem und im weiblichen Genitalsystem vor. Lactobacillus plantarum aus Pflanzen ist eine der häufigsten Arten von Lactobazillen und wird bei Joghurt, Käse sowie Milchprodukten verwendet. In der Hautpflege reduziert dieser Inhaltsstoff mit einer Konzentration von 5% in der Formulierung dunkle Flecken und Aknenarben. Laktobazillen produzieren wie Bifidobacterium longum Milchsäure, die deine Haut vor Krankheitserregern schützt und sie gleichzeitig mit Nährstoffen versorgt. In der Hautpflege kommt Lactobacillus normalerweise als Lactobacillus-Fermentfiltrat vor.


Galactomyces ist eine Gruppe von Pilzen, die während des Sake-Brauprozesses gezüchtet werden. Studien haben bewiesen, dass das Fermentationsfiltrat von Galaktomyces dabei hilft, die Haut zu peelen, die Poren zu verfeinern, die Talgproduktion zu kontrollieren, stumpfe Haut aufzuhellen und Akne vorzubeugen. Der patentierte Name für Galactomyces-Fermentfiltrat von SK-II ist Pitera, der Hauptinhaltsstoff hinter ihres einzigartigen Produktes Essenz Facial Treatment. Jedes Fläschchen enthält über 90% Pitera.


Welche Beziehung besteht zwischen Probiotika und Fermentation?

Obwohl Fermente eine wichtige Quelle von Probiotika sind, gelten nicht alle Fermente als Probiotika und nicht alle Probiotika liegen in Form von Fermenten vor. Einige Inhaltsstoffe der Hautpflege werden aus anderen Gründen und nicht nur für probiotische Vorteile fermentiert. Bei der Fermentation wird die molekulare Struktur der Inhaltsstoffe aufgespalten, wodurch Nährstoffe in einer konzentrierteren und leichteren Form aufgenommen werden können. Dieser Prozess hilft dabei zusätzliche Aminosäuren zu produzieren, um die Kollagenproduktion sowie Antioxidantien zu stimulieren, um vorzeitige Hautalterung zu bekämpfen. Die meisten fermentierten Produkte sind sauer, was das Peeling der Haut unterstützt.


Präbiotika, Probiotika und Postbiotika: Was sind die Unterschiede?

Probiotische Hautpflegeprodukte enthalten normalerweise eine Mischung aus präbiotischen, probiotischen und postbiotischen Inhaltsstoffen. Probiotika sind Mikroben, die du gerne auf deiner Haut angesiedelt haben möchtest, um allgemein die Hautgesundheit zu fördern. Präbiotika wie Beta-Glucan und Xylit sind Verbindungen, die probiotische Mikroben nähren; diese stellen sicher, dass die Mikroben richtig funktionieren, wenn sie auf die Haut aufgetragen werden. Postbiotika sind Nebenprodukte des Stoffwechsels der lebenden Bakterien. Obwohl sie keine aktiven Bakterien sind, erfüllen Postbiotika zu denen probiotische Lysate, Fermente, Filtrate, Hyaluronsäure, Peptide, Ceramide und Vitamine gehören, dennoch ähnliche Funktionen wie lebende Bakterien.


Sind Probiotika vegan-freundlich?

Probiotika, die durch Fermentation von Milchprodukten produziert werden, sind nicht vegan. Allerdings können Probiotika, die aus Kombucha, Miso und milchfreiem Joghurt hergestellt werden, vegan sein. Die vegane Kombucha-Tee-Essenz von Dr. Ceuracle ist beispielsweise mit 78% probiotischen Extrakten aus Kombucha-Tee formuliert, um den Öl-Wasser-Gehalt der Haut auszugleichen, tiefe Feuchtigkeit zu spenden, die Hautbarriere zu stärken und die Hautgesundheit zu fördern. Die Essenz hat ein Öl-Wasser-Verhältnis von 15:85. Die milchige Creme oben und die klare braune Essenz unten vermischen sich zu einer milchteeähnlichen Lösung.


ONE THING ist dafür bekannt, nur die essentiellen Inhaltsstoffe in ihren Produkten zu verwenden und bietet Toner mit veganfreundlichen Galactomyces Fermentfiltrat, die mit Proteinen, Aminosäuren, Vitaminen und Mineralien angereichert sind, um die Haut zu klären. Die vegane Bifida Ferment Lysate-Essenz der Marke ist außerdem reich an Proteinen, Laktose, Milchsäure und Vitaminen, um die Haut zu verjüngen.

¿Qué es la cosmética con probióticos?

Los probióticos son bacterias saludables que ofrecen múltiples beneficios. Se sabe que los complementos alimenticios con probióticos estimulan el sistema inmunológico y mantienen el intestino sano. Recientemente, estudios científicos han demostrado los beneficios de los probióticos en la piel. Por tanto, este ingrediente se utiliza cada vez más en productos de belleza. Disponibles como limpiadores, tónicos y cremas hidratantes, los cosméticos y productos de cuidado de la piel con prebióticos contienen cultivos vivos de bacterias benéficas, que son bacterias iguales o similares a las que ya están presentes en nuestro cuerpo.


¿Para qué sirve la cosmética con probióticos?

Al igual que los complementos alimenticios con probióticos ayudan a mejorar nuestro sistema digestivo, los probióticos en cosmética de uso tópico nos defienden de los radicales libres y las bacterias malignas, manteniendo la salud de la microbiota cutánea, el conjunto de bacterias de nuestro cuerpo. La cosmética con probióticos ayuda a fortalecer la barrera cutánea, prevenir el acné, reducir la inflamación, mantener el pH óptimo, aumentar la elasticidad y refinar la textura de la piel. Los efectos de cada tipo de bacteria benéfica varían de una especie a otra. Otros factores como la concentración de la fórmula, el método de procesamiento (por ejemplo, fermentación) y la combinación con otros ingredientes también pueden afectar el rendimiento de los probióticos en los productos para el cuidado de la piel.


¿Para qué sirve la cosmética con probióticos?

Dado que los probióticos son más simbióticos con la piel, generalmente no causan irritación ni alteran el entorno bacteriano natural de la piel. A diferencia de los exfoliantes químicos como los AHA o BHA, que pueden eliminar tanto las sustancias buenas como las malas de la piel, los probióticos son más suaves porque aportan a la piel lo que necesita y mejoran gradualmente sus defensas naturales contra las agresiones externas.


¿Para qué tipos de piel es adecuada la cosmética con probióticos?

La cosmética con probióticos es adecuada para todo tipo de piel, ya sean grasas, secas, mixtas, sensibles, maduras o propensas al acné. Sin embargo, estos productos son especialmente ideales para pieles sensibles o propensas al acné fúngico, ya que ayudan a calmar la piel y restablecer el equilibrio de la microbiota cutánea.


¿Cuál es la mejor cosmética con probióticos para la piel?

Los microorganismos (o microbios) incluyen hongos y bacterias. Muchos alimentos y bebidas fermentados son ricos en microbios vivos, como kombucha, kimchi, encurtidos, nato, miso, yogur, kéfir, masa madre o incluso ciertos quesos, por nombrar algunos. Los consumimos habitualmente sin saber siquiera qué probióticos o levaduras contienen. Cuando se trata de productos para el cuidado de la piel, por otro lado, los probióticos utilizados generalmente se enumeran en la lista de ingredientes. Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus y galactomyces se encuentran entre los probióticos más utilizados en la cosmética y los productos para el cuidado facial.


Bifidobacterium longum, una de las 32 especies de bifidobacterias, se encuentra naturalmente en el tracto digestivo humano. Produce ácido láctico, que se considera un agente inhibidor del crecimiento de patógenos. Por lo general, es el fermento (llamado lisado de fermento bífida) el que se usa en los productos para el cuidado de la piel, en lugar de las bacterias en sí. Lisado de fermento bífida es el ingrediente antiedad clave en el sérum Advanced Night Repair de Estée Lauder. Ayuda a reparar la piel dañada, dejándola hidratada, calmada y visiblemente más saludable.


Lactobacillus, que cubre más de 260 especies, está presente de forma natural en el tracto digestivo humano y en el sistema reproductor femenino. El lactobacillus plantarum de origen vegetal es uno de los lactobacilos más comunes. Se encuentra en particular en yogures, quesos y productos lácteos. En los productos para el cuidado de la piel, este ingrediente ayuda a reducir las manchas oscuras y las cicatrices del acné cuando se usa a una concentración del 5% de la fórmula. Al igual que bifidobacterium longum, los lactobacilos producen ácido láctico, que ayuda a proteger la piel de los patógenos mientras la nutre. Lactobacillus se encuentra comúnmente en productos para el cuidado de la piel en forma de filtrado de fermento de lactobacillus.


Galactomyces son un grupo de hongos que crece durante el proceso de elaboración del sake. Numerosos estudios han demostrado que el filtrado de fermento de galactomyces ayuda a exfoliar la piel, cerrar los poros, regular la producción de sebo, iluminar el cutis apagado y prevenir el acné. El nombre patentado de SK-II para el filtrado de fermento de galactomyces es Pitera, el ingrediente estrella de la esencia Facial Treatment Essence. Cada botella de este producto contiene más del 90% de Pitera.


¿Cuál es la relación entre los probióticos y la fermentación?

Aunque los fermentos son una fuente importante de probióticos, no todos los fermentos entran en la categoría de probióticos y no todos los probióticos necesariamente toman la forma de fermentos. Algunos ingredientes para el cuidado de la piel se fermentan por razones distintas a los beneficios de los probióticos. La fermentación descompone la estructura molecular de los ingredientes, haciendo que los nutrientes estén más concentrados y sean más fáciles de absorber. Este proceso ayuda a producir más aminoácidos para estimular la producción de colágeno, así como antioxidantes para prevenir el envejecimiento prematuro de la piel. La mayoría de los productos fermentados tienen un pH ácido, lo que ayuda a exfoliar la piel.


¿Cuál es la diferencia entre los prebióticos, probióticos y posbióticos?

La cosmética con probióticos suele contener una mezcla de prebióticos, probióticos y posbióticos. Los probióticos son los microbios que mantienen la buena salud general de nuestra piel cuando la colonizan. Los prebióticos, como el betaglucano o el xilitol, son compuestos de los que se alimentan los microbios probióticos. Ayudan a garantizar que los gérmenes funcionen correctamente cuando los aplica sobre la piel. Los postbióticos son productos derivados del metabolismo de bacterias vivas. Aunque no son bacterias activas, los postbióticos realizan funciones muy similares a las de las bacterias vivas. Esta categoría incluye en particular lisados probióticos, fermentos, filtrados, ácido hialurónico, péptidos, ceramidas y vitaminas.


¿Son los probióticos ingredientes veganos?

Los probióticos de la fermentación de productos lácteos no son veganos. Sin embargo, los elaborados con kombucha, miso o yogur sin leche animal pueden ser veganos. Por ejemplo, la esencia vegana de té kombucha Vegan Kombucha Tea de Dr. Ceuracle está formulada al 78% con extractos probióticos de té de kombucha para restaurar el equilibrio hidrolipídico de la piel, hidratarla profundamente y fortalecer la barrera cutánea. Esta esencia tiene una proporciona agua-aceite de 85:15. Su crema lechosa en la parte superior y su esencia marrón claro en la parte inferior se combinan para formar una solución similar al té con leche.


Conocida por utilizar solo ingredientes esenciales en sus productos, la marca ONE THING ofrece el tónico vegano Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate Toner enriquecido con proteínas, aminoácidos, vitaminas y minerales para aclarar la piel. La esencia vegana Bifida Ferment Lysate Essence de la marca también es rica en proteínas, lactosa, ácido láctico y vitaminas para rejuvenecer la piel.


¿Cuáles son los mejores productos con probióticos para la piel?

En Corea, donde se consumen regularmente productos fermentados como el kimchi, muchas personas han comenzado a utilizar productos con probióticos para la piel, y las marcas que ofrecen este tipo de productos están en auge en el mercado. MISSHA y Secret Key han sido durante mucho tiempo defensores del cuidado de la piel probiótico, mientras que otras marcas de belleza coreanas como NEOGEN, Benton, Manyo y ONE THING también se han comenzado a desarrollar dichos productos.


Limpiadores faciales con probióticos

La espuma limpiadora Pro Hyaluron Cleansing Foam de MAXCLINIC está enriquecida con ocho tipos de probióticos, incluido el lisado de fermento de lactobacilo y el lisado de fermento bífido, que fortalecen la barrera cutánea, para una piel flexible y luminosa.

Su fórmula está enriquecida en un 90% con complejo bifidalacto y saponina derivada del ginseng, para revertir los signos del envejecimiento. Como opción adicional, la ampolla Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule, incorpora cinco tipos de probióticos y diez tipos de ácido hialurónico para restaurar el equilibrio natural de la piel.

What is probiotic skin care?

Probiotics are good bacteria beneficial to your health in multiple ways. Probiotic supplements are widely known to boost the immune system and gut health. Lately, scientific studies have also proven the benefits of probiotics on skin, so this ingredient’s use in beauty products is on an upward trend. Coming as cleansers, toners and moisturizers, probiotic skin care products contain live cultures of healthy bacteria that are either the same or similar to bacteria that already exist in our body.


What does probiotic skin care do?

Just like how probiotic supplements help improve the digestive system, topical probiotics help fend off free radicals and bad bacteria to maintain skin’s microbiome – the ecosystem of bacteria in our body. Probiotic skin care helps strengthen the skin barrier, prevent acne, reduce inflammation, maintain skin’s pH levels, boost skin elasticity and refine its appearance. The effects of each type of good bacteria vary from species to species. Formulation concentration, processing method (such as fermentation) and combination with other ingredients may also affect the performance of probiotics in skin care.


Why use probiotic skin care?

Since probiotics are more symbiotic with the skin, they usually do not cause irritation or disrupt the skin’s natural bacterial environment. Unlike chemicals such as AHA or BHA that may strip away both good and bad substances from skin, probiotics have milder effects as they supplement skin with what it needs and gradually improve its natural defense against environmental aggressors.


What skin types would benefit from probiotic skin care?

Probiotic skin care is suitable for all skin types including oily, dry, combination, sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin types. Those with sensitive skin or fungal acne can benefit most from these products since they help calm skin and restore its microbiome equilibrium.


Which probiotics are best for skin?

Microorganisms (a.k.a. microbes) include both fungi and bacteria. Many fermented foods and drinks are rich in live microbes, such as kombucha, kimchi, pickles, natto, miso, yogurt, kefir, sourdough and certain cheeses, to name a few. We usually consume them without knowing what probiotics or yeasts they contain. When it comes to skin care, however, the probiotics used are usually specified in the ingredient list. Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus and galactomyces are some of the most commonly used probiotics in skin care.


Bifidobacterium longum, one of 32 species of bifidobacteria, can be found in the human gastrointestinal tract. It produces lactic acid which is believed to inhibit the growth of pathogens. Instead of just the bacteria itself, its ferment (called bifida ferment lysate) is usually used in skin care. Bifida ferment lysate is the key anti-aging ingredient in Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. It helps repair damaged skin, promote healthy skin and deliver hydrating and soothing effects.


Lactobacillus, which has over 260 species, is found in the human digestive and female genital systems. Lactobacillus plantarum derived from plants is one of the most common types of lactobacilli, and it's used in yogurt, cheese and dairy products. In skin care, this ingredient diminishes dark spots and acne scars at a concentration of 5% in the formulation. Like bifidobacterium longum, lactobacilli produce lactic acid, which helps protect your skin against pathogens while providing it with nutrients. Lactobacillus is usually present in skin care as lactobacillus ferment filtrate.


Galactomyces is a group of fungi grown during the sake brewing process. Studies have shown that galactomyces ferment filtrate helps exfoliate skin, refine pores, control sebum production, brighten dull skin and prevent acne. SK-II’s patented name for galactomyces ferment filtrate is Pitera, the star ingredient behind the brand’s signature Facial Treatment Essence. Each bottle contains over 90% Pitera.


What is the relationship between probiotics and fermentation?

Even though ferments are a major source of probiotics, not all ferments qualify as probiotics, and not all probiotics take the form of ferments. Some skin care ingredients are fermented for other reasons besides just probiotic benefits. Fermentation breaks down the molecular structure of ingredients, making nutrients more concentrated and easier to absorb. This process helps produce additional amino acids to stimulate collagen production as well as antioxidants to fight against premature aging. Most fermented products are acidic, which helps exfoliate skin.


Prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics: What are the differences?

Probiotic skin care products normally contain a mix of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic ingredients. Probiotics are the microbes that you'd like to colonize on your skin to promote overall skin health. Prebiotics, such as beta-glucan and xylitol, are compounds that feed probiotic microbes; they ensure the microbes function properly when applied onto skin. Postbiotics are by-products from the metabolism of the living bacteria. Even though they’re not active bacteria, postbiotics, which can include probiotic lysates, ferments, filtrates, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides and vitamins, still perform similar functions as live bacteria.


Are probiotics vegan-friendly?

Probiotics made from fermentation of dairy products are not vegan. However, those made from kombucha, miso and non-dairy yogurt may be vegan. For example, Dr. Ceuracle’s Vegan Kombucha Tea Essence is formulated with 78% probiotic extracts from kombucha tea to balance skin’s oil-water levels, provide deep hydration, strengthen the skin barrier and boost skin health. The essence has a 15:85 oil-to-water ratio. The milky cream on top and clear brown essence at the bottom mix to form a milk tea-like solution.


Famous for using only essential ingredients in products, ONE THING offers a vegan-friendly Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate Toner packed with proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to clarify skin. The brand’s vegan Bifida Ferment Lysate Essence is also rich in proteins, lactose, lactic acid and vitamins to rejuvenate skin.


Probiotic skin care products

In Korea where fermented products like kimchi are regularly consumed, many people have embraced probiotic skin care, and probiotic skin care brands and lines are proliferating in the market. MISSHA and Secret Key are long-time advocates of probiotic skin care, while other Korean beauty brands such as NEOGEN, Benton, Manyo and ONE THING have also joined the game.


Probiotic facial cleansers

MAXCLINIC’s Pro Hyaluron Cleansing Foam is packed with eight types of probiotics including lactobacillus ferment lysate and bifida ferment lysate to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, keeping it bright and supple. If you’re looking for a quick way to remove makeup, try MIZON’s One Step Cleansing Water, which is formulated with lactobacillus ferment lysate, bifida ferment lysate and lactococcus ferment lysate (a ferment of another lactic acid bacteria).

K-Drama fans might remember Manyo’s Bifida Complex Ampoule that appeared in the rom-com series Crash Landing on You. The formula is enriched with 90% bifidalaxcto complex and ginseng-derived saponin to reverse signs of aging. Its alternative, the Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule, contains five types of probiotics and ten kinds of hyaluronic acid to restore skin’s natural balance.
