    • Shake before use

      The fine crystals that you may notice in the oil contain the probiotics. They will dissolve upon contact with your skin to release the good bacteria.

      To ensure the probiotics are dispersed throughout the oil, shake the bottle before drawing oil into the pipette.

    • Apply to clean skin

      Cleanse your skin (preferably with a prebiotic cleanser).

      Apply several drops of the oil to clean skin, and gently spread the product evenly, in a thin layer. The oil can be used both on the face and body.

      Don’t apply other products to the skin before applying the oil unless those products are also free from preservatives.

    • Avoid skincare with preservatives

      Let probiotic products absorb into the skin for 30 minutes before applying other products, like sunscreen or make-up, that are water-based.

      All water-based products contain preservatives designed to kill bacteria—also the good ones.

    • Store probiotics cool until first use

      When unopened, keep the probiotic oil in the fridge (2-8 °C) to maximize shelf-life.

      Once opened, store the product at room temperature. The product will maintain maximum efficacy for the first three months after opening.

    • Jojoba oil

      Jojoba oil is an effective emollient and moisturizing oil that in its composition resembles the skin's own oil (sebum). This makes it suitable for most skin types.

    • Rapeseed oil

      Canola oil is derived from rapeseeds and has restorative and skin-soothing properties. It is rich in omega 9 fatty acids and is therefore a great moisturizer and emollient.

    • Sunflower oil

    Real probiotics are a science

    There's a bunch of rumors, recommendations and undocumented experiences within probiotics. We try to elevate the discussion on the area and separate fake from fact, probiotic from none-probiotic

    • Not necessarily.

      You may have eread about CFU (colony formin units), which is the indicator of how many active bacteria a product contains. A larger number is not necessarily better. The best dosis is the one which is tested and has proven health benefits.

    • Great questions.

      'Probiotic' is often misinterpreted or misused in products that don’t fulfill the definition. Probiotics is still a fairly new area of research and consumer products (in some categories at least), which is why it is sometimes use as a marketing-gimmick. Unfortunately this dilutes the actual science behind real probiotics. There is however stricter regulation on the way, which will hopefully make it easier for you as a consumer to separate probiotics from marketing.

    Still curious?

    • Our products contain living bacteria why you should be aware of the storage and expiration date.

      When you receive the product it can be kept refrigerated (2-8°C) for more than 12 months without loosing effect. When you start using the product it can be stored at room temperature for ~3 months without loosing effect. If you don't expect to use the product within ~3 months it's a good idea to keep the product refrigerated.

    • It varies a lot

      Some experience changes quickly within the first week whereas for others it can take up to a full month.

    • If you are not satisfied with your results from the product, we will be more than happy to send a different product for you to try. Otherwise we'll refund the purchase.

    • Poorly.

      People in the industrial world loses microbial diversity in the gut and on the skin due to Western Lifestyle; We live too clean, use antibiotics and eat diet with high fat and refined sugars but low in fiber. The decrease of microbial diversity directly correlates with a rise in a range of skin issues as well as metabolic and immune diseases like allergy, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D), and multiple sclerosis (MS).
