Our skin secretes its own sebum which protects the skin from external damage. The rate of producing sebum depends on the hormone activity of a person. Some produce too much sebum that leads to oily and acne prone skin.
Overproduction of sebum also causes bacteria on the skin to multiply at a faster rate. One example is P. acnes, which secretes enzymes as a byproduct that can cause inflammation. Traditional treatment to eliminate P. acnes bacteria also destroys other friendly bacteria, which in the long run creates imbalance of skin microbiome.
We incorporate prebiotics in our formulation to restore the good bacteria on the skin. This prebiotic saccharide is the food for good bacteria which regulates the population of P. acnes in the skin. Balanced skin microbiome leads to a healthier complexion of the skin.
