  • Store at Room Temperature

    Postbiotic products do not contain live probiotics, and hence do not need to be stored cool before first use.

  • Instructions for use

    Apply to clean, dry skin. The product can be used on its own to lightly moisturize without feeling greasy. It's ideal for layering under sunscreen or make-up as it won't overload the skin.

  • In your routine

    We recommend using this product in the morning, and using a probiotic formulation like an oil or serum at night as they are more nourishing and active.

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?

  • 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).
