We are in the middle of “the microbiome revolution”

- not a day goes by without some new revelation on the potential role of the microbiome in some disease or disorder

The Microbiome

The humas body is home to trillions of bacteria, fungi and viruses that compose the microbiome. These microbes have recently emerged as an important factor in human physiology and disease.


A microbiome out of balance (dysbiosis) can result in various problems or even systemic disease. Chemicals, antimicrobial agents, and antibiotics are often used as treatment, but with a declining effect and harmful impact on the entire skin microbiome.

Microbial Solutions

Restoring microbiome health and balance can be accomplished without the use of chemicals or antibiotics using Lactobio's probiotic and postbiotic solutions.

Long shelf-life and numerous skincare formulations

LB356R® Ferment lysate

Known for its probiotic and skin friendly qualities, LB356R® Ferment lysate, is ideal for companies looking for natural and effective skincare solutions with long shelf life at room temperature.

LB356R® Ferment lysate is a fermented lysate of Lactiplantibacillus plantarum (formerly Lactobacillus plantarum) with the special functionality to co-aggregate with and inactivate Cutibacterium acnes and inhibit Staphylococcus aureus.

LB356R® Ferment lysate can be added to most cosmetic formulations and used to improve skin health and appearance incl. aging and pigmentation.

LB356R® Ferment lysate substantially improves common skin conditions such as:

−     Atopic, dry, itchy and sensitive skin

−     Impure and acne-prone skin

−     Redness and skin prone to rosacea


In late 2020, Lactobio conclude clinical trials on both atopic dermatitis and acne vulgaris.

A double-blind placebo-controlled study that included 40 participants with impure and acne-prone skin showed a 62% average decrease of pustules, while 71% of the subjects had less pustules after 28 days of use of live Lactiplantibacillus plantarum LB356R®.

For atopic dermatitis, another clinical trial showed that redness of the skin, sores, thick areas and abrasions were substantially reduced in 67% of the participants, while dryness and itching were substantially reduced in 96% of the users after only 14 days of using Lactiplantibacillus plantarum LB244R®.

New strain for acne-prone skin

Lactobio scientists discovers a new strain of Lactiplantibacillus plantarum that stops the growth of problematic acne bacteria.

The ground-breaking Lactiplantibacillus plantarum LB356R®, works by binding to Cutibacterium acnes, while also restoring the natural balance of the skin microbiome (ecosystem of microorganisms) improving both skin health and appearance. 

Added to the product line-up, Lactobio's probiotic skincare for impure and acne-prone skin becomes an instant success on the market.

First scientic breakthrough

Lactobio finds a unique lactic acid strain, Lactiplantibacillus plantarum LB244R® with the ability to co-aggregate with S. aureus and inhibit its growth.

Based on the newly discovered strain our cosmeceutical brand, Bak Probiotic Skincare, marks the beginning of a new era for Lactobio and the commercialization of multiple products with live probiotic bacteria.

Bak Probiotic Skincare can be a applied as a topical application, restoring skin health and appearance - without the use of chemicals or antibiotics. The skincare series substantially improves common skin conditions such as:

−     Atopic, dry, itchy and sensitive skin

−     Impure and acne-prone skin

−     Redness and skin prone to rosacea

Lactobio is founded

Cases of eczema, rosacea, acne and bacterial vaginosis have increased dramatically in recent years. At the same time, conventional treatment, such as antibiotics, are damaging to our microbiome and have become less effective.

In 2017, Søren Kjærulff and Charlotte Vedel realized the need to find new, long-term solutions to this growing problem.

This was the beginning of the Copenhagen based biotech company Lactobio, whose researchers have identified and isolated thousands of probiotic bacterial strains over the past years by fermenting all kinds of vegetables and plants and by collecting isolates from healthy donors.

Lactobio is a probiotic and microbiome company developing cosmeceuticals, dietary supplements and live biotherapeutic products
