NURTURING YOUR SKIN MICROBIOME

Your skin microbiome is a complex ecosystem of microorganisms that live on your skin. These beneficial microbes play a crucial role in protecting against pathogens, supporting the immune system, and maintaining overall skin health. Disruption of this delicate balance can lead to skin issues such as acne, eczema, and premature aging.

When looking for skin care products, there are key ingredients that help nurture and support your skin's microbial community:

PREBIOTICS
Prebiotics nourish beneficial bacteria, promoting their growth and activity on the skin. They help enhance the skin's barrier function, which retains moisture and protects against environmental aggressors, and they maintain the skin's slightly acidic pH, creating an inhospitable environment for harmful pathogens.

PROBIOTICS
Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that can replenish and balance the skin microbiome, especially after a disbiosis situation or a fall of the immune system. They reduce inflammation, soothe skin conditions like acne and eczema, produce antimicrobial substances that inhibit harmful bacteria, and improve skin hydration by strengthening the skin barrier.

POSTBIOTICS
Postbiotics are bioactive compounds produced by probiotics during fermentation. They provide antimicrobial benefits, control harmful bacteria growth, enhance the skin barrier by promoting the production of essential lipids, stimulate skin cell turnover, and reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, protecting the skin from damage.

ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants such as viamin C, vitamin E or niacinamide protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which can damage skin cells and disrupt the microbiome. They help calm irritated skin, creating a more hospitable environment for beneficial microbes, and strenthen the skin's natural defenses to maintain a balanced microbiome.

HUMECTANTS
Humectants draw moisture from the environment into the skin, keeping it hydrated and plump. Well-hydrated skin provides a favorable environment for beneficial bacteria and is less prone to cracks and disruptions that can harbor harmful microbes.

To maintain and enhance the skin microbiome, incorporating specific ingredients into your skincare routine can be highly beneficial. At Disproquima we work with a borad range of ingredients that promote a healthy skin microbiome.

#1 Oxy 229 CB

A postbiotic bioactive that revives dull-looking skin by enhancing oxygen uptake and cell turnover. It also helps to control oily skin and rebalances Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii bacteria.

#2 SYN-UP®
This unique peptide has excellent capacity to improve the barrier functionality by interacting with the skin microbiome. It combats skin dryness, sensitivity and redness, and helps to smooth and firm the skin.

#3 ALPAFLOR® ALP-SEBUM CB
A sustainable, organic prebiotic to reduce skin oiliness and balance the microbiome. It moderates sebum production, the main cause of oily skin, by inhibiting the key enzyme 5-α-reductase.

#4 Pentavitin®
Ensures instant, deep hydration to strengthen the scalp surface and promote a harmonious interaction between scalp skin and its microbiome.

#5 C-mo 2G ™:
Epidermidis secrets a sphingomyelinase, which supports the bacteria and, in turn, assists the skin in producing ceramides, contributing to the prevention of skin dehydration and aging.

#6 Flavoxale®
The combination of Propolis M.E.D., Manuka honey and Manuka essential oil ensures some specific bacterial inhibition activity, while respecting the bacterial flora naturally present on the epidermis.

#7 Xylitol
This sugar has antimicrobial and antiinflammatory properties. It also helps maintain an optimal pH level on the skin, essential for the growth of beneficial microorganisms. Xylitol can disrupt biofilms, which are protective layers created by harmful bacteria.

The skin microbiome is an integral part of our skin’s health. By understanding its importance and incorporating microbiome-friendly ingredients into our skincare routines, we can nurture this vital ecosystem, leading to healthier, more resilient skin.
