This is a new and improved version of Serum for Acne-prone Skin, which does not need to be refrigerated.

- Improves skin health and appearance
- Helps to restore even skin tone and complexion
- Suitable for dry and/or combination skin that's prone to breakouts (for oily skin, see our oil for acne-prone skin)

      • How to use

        Cleanse your skin (preferably with a prebiotic cleanser).

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

      • Let it soak in before applying other products

        Let the probiotic product absorb into the skin before applying other products, like sunscreen or make-up.

        Take care not to layer the probiotic with antibacterial skincare. Antibacterial ingredients are most commonly found in products for acne-prone skin.

        For more information on how to combine probiotics with other skincare, please read this blog.

      • Probiotic crystals

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

      • Store at room temperature

        Thanks to our latest innovation, this live probiotic formulation can now be stored at room temperature, instead of in the fridge.

        Once opened, the product retains it's efficacy for three months.

      • Jojoba oil

      • Sunflower oil

        Sunflower oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness and roughness on the skin. Sunflower oil also maintains the strength of the outer layers of your skin and helps keep it hydrated.

      • Hydrogenated Olive oil

        Hydrogenated olive oil contains beneficial fatty acids and is a rich source of antioxidants. When applied to the skin, it is easily absorbed and has a softening and moisturizing effect.

      • Tocopherol (vitamin E)

        Tocopherol (Vitamin E) is an antioxidant that has shown positive effects on everything from dry skin and eczema to wrinkles. In addition, it can help on sun damaged skin.

      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).
