The skin's first defence barrier - the ecoflora microbiological barrier

Ecoflora is our microbiological barrier and is our second cutaneous natural defence system. It has to be preserved, reinforced or restored to avoid the invasion of the skin by undesirable bacteria. 

 

There is a normal balance of microbes on the skin that protect introduced microbes from harming us. Conventional care products, which are responsible for 90 percent of chemicals on the skin according the Human Microbiome Project analysis, are implicated in the increasing number of skin problems in the Western world. Common moisturisers, soaps and shampoos can undermine the skin microbiome, due to the antimicrobial preservatives they contain or their alkaline pH. An increasing number of industry experts have seized this market opportunity by developing skin care products adapted to the skin microbiome.

How do probiotics provide benefits to the skin microbiome?

The bacteria of the skin microbiome have a crucial protective effect. They help maintain the immune system, repair damage, and protect against allergens and UV exposure. Bacteria also limit damage caused by oxidation and improve the hydration and elasticity of the skin. However, an unbalanced microbiome is linked to many skin conditions such as eczema, allergies, dandruff, acne or dermatitis.

  • Probiotics - introduce good bacteria useful for the organism to enhance the ecoflora defence. 

  • Prebiotics - stimulate good bacteria growth.

  • Symbiotic - combination of probiotics and prebiotics to optimise results.

  • Metabolites - reinforcement of original bacteria.

What are metabolites?

When bacteria feed on something, they will metabolise it to produce something called "metabolites", such as 

  • antioxidants​

  • amino acids

  • proteins

  • easily recognised and assimilated by other good bacteria

  • reinforce original strains which efficiently eliminate bad bacteria

Benefits of metabolites
Our fermentation process to create probiotic metabolites
Our probiotic metabolites
  • Rich in 500 active molecules
  • Does not contain live or whole bacteria

  • Consists of cell fractions produced by different Lactobacilli strains as a response to stress

  • 300 molecules identified and quantified including proteins, amino acids, free amino acids, organic acids, amines, peptides, phosphoric acid, nucleoside and nucleoside compounds, phospholipids, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, isoflavones, hydroxy acid.

Protect 
  • Maintain the skin at a healthy weak acidic pH (4.5-5.5)

  • Anti-microbial: does not destroy the unfriendly bacteria but makes them leave by creating a different environment

  • Reduce oxidation 

           
Soothe 

  • Prevent allergies

  • Reduce immediate painful feeling after external aggression

Moisturise

  • immediately increase the skin's hydration

  • improve elasticity

Repair

  • stimulate collagen synthesis

  • stimulate hyaluronic acid synthesis

 The bacteria we use in our fermentation process are

  • Lactobacillus 

  • Bifidobacteria​​
