The skin microbiome (ecosystem) contains both good and bad bacteria. A microbiome in balance offers protection against bad bacteria and ensures healthier skin. 

Acne-prone skin is often a result of a disturbed balance in the microbiome. Imbalances in the microbiome are problematic since bad bacteria can multiply and outnumber the good bacteria. This impairs and sometimes damages the immune system and barrier function of the skin, which can lead to various skin problems and worsen acne-prone skin.

The past decade’s research into the skin microbiome has led to a new understanding of bacteria as one of the best defenses against skin problems such as acne 

At Bak Probiotic Skincare we look at acne in an innovative way by adding billions of live good probiotic bacteria directly on the skin to protect and restore the natural skin microbiome.

Probiotic solutions

Our Rescue Serum has been developed for acne-prone skin and contains live, probiotic bacteria (LB356R® & LB244R®) to reduce pimples and impurities on the skin. 

LB356R® binds to the Cutibacterium acnes bacterium and counters blemishes without irritating, drying or impairing skin health.

LB244R® balances Staphylococcus aureus which can cause problems for people with acne-prone skin.

Clinically proven*

After 28 days of use, the incidence of pimples was significantly reduced in 71% of the participants.

*Double-blind placebo-controlled study that included 40 people with impure and acne-prone skin.
