What is “Prebiotic Cosmetics”, and what’s the difference between it and “Probiotic Cosmetics”?
“Prebiotic cosmetics” and “probiotic cosmetics”
“Prebiotic cosmetics” and “probiotic cosmetics” have become a buzzword in the past year, but many don’t understand exactly what they mean, or simply confuse between them. This blog will try to explain what these two categories mean and the differences between them.
Let’s start with some background: inside our bodies and on our skin, we co-exist with billions of micro-organisms, such as bacteria, which play a key role in protecting our health. They are called “Microbiota”.
The COVID-19 made us all fear viruses, but the truth is, that our bodies face viruses, bacteria and fungi constantly, and is harmed by them very rarely. Our microbiota is one of the reasons for this – our bacteria simply fight and reject new bacteria for us.
As long as our microbiota is balanced, the skin is healthy and looks beautiful. However, various factors such as hormonal changes, UV radiation, fatigue and stress, exposure to chemicals, and of-course the intensive use of face masks, may disrupt this balance. Imbalanced microbiota has visual signs, such as pimples (pimples are typically caused by bacteria of the acne family), inflammations, redness, pigmentation, dryness and even wrinkles.
This is where PREBIOTIC COSMETICS becomes relevant. PREBIOTIC COSMETICS restores the balance by offering nutrients to the “goods” bacteria. When the “good” bacteria are fed with the nutrients they like, they thrive, and fight the bad bacteria effectively.
This is where I recommend you to learn more about B4U’s prebiotic cosmetic lines:
- Prebiotic Beauty Anti-Aging – based on Revivyl™, winner of 3 gold-medals, that offers holistic skin renewal in 14 days based on prebiotic science.
- Prebiotic Beauty Anti-Acne- based on Black BeeOme™, an award-winning prebiotic technology that regulates sebum production, mattifies and purifies oily skin.
- Prebiotic Care – organic-certified and vegan line that balances the skin, makes it more even, relaxed and nourished.
PROBIOTIC COSMETICS, on the other hand, are quite different. Basically, they are based on bacteria with positive effect on the skin, similarly to probiotic yogurt, that includes bacteria which is good for our digestive system.
Both categories offer interesting benefits, but it’s important to understand the science behind them.
