Ingredients

Please refer to individual product pages for list of ingredients.

  • Crystals with probiotics

    The fine crystals in the serum and oil contain the probiotics. They will dissolve upon contact with your skin to release the good bacteria.

  • How to use

    Cleanser: Wet the skin with luke-warm water and massage a few drops of the cleanser onto the skin. Rinse thoroughly with luke-warm water.

    The cleanser is oil-based and free from sulphates which is why it doesn’t foam. It will remove dirt and most make-up. Avoid contact with eyes. Suitable for the face and body (but not the intimate area).

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

  • 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 serum 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.

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.

  • 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).
