Microbiome Care for Acne-Prone Skin
Probiotic skincare contains live bacteria, which contribute to the skin's health and appearance
This is a new and improved version of Serum for Acne-prone Skin, which does not need to be refrigerated.

It works without irritating, drying out or oterwise compromising your skin health. The formulation is non-comedogenic, and largely based on jojoba oil, which is the most similar to the skin's natural sebum.

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.

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.
