A growing number of consumers are interested in natural and “clean” cosmeceuticals, but in return they want proof that the products have a genuine effect and long-term benefits for their skin health.

As a first-mover within the topical application of live probiotics, Lactobio's products are clinically proven to improve skin conditions like acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis

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 Lactobio's probiotic solutions for acne and impure skin.

Parrallels can be drawn to LB356R® Ferment lysate, since Lactiplantibacillus plantarum LB356R® is known for producing several antimicrobial peptides (plantaricins) and skin improving metabolites. During the fermentation these peptides and metabolites are produced and present in LB356R® Ferment lysate. Therefore, even though the probiotic LB356R® is no longer alive, the ferment lysate still has the ability to inhibit the growth of the pathogens C. acnes and S. aureus and improve skin quality.
