You May have heard about or even jumped on the Pro-Biotic skincare trend, but did you know that Pre-Biotics are just as crucial for a healthy, glowing complexion?
ELEMIS endeavour to source actives that work in sync with the skin, for the ultimate results. Just one of the many natural, active ingredients found in our NEW Superfood Skincare System, we’re lifting the lid on everything you need to know about Pre-Biotics, and the benefits they have on your skin’s health. Let’s get stuck into the science!
What exactly is a Pre-Biotic?
A Pre-Biotic is a food source for the skin’s ‘good’ microflora, more commonly known as bacteria. Just like our fingerprint, we all have our own microflora ecosystem that’s unique to us, made up of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria.
We are literally covered from head to toe in microflora (it’s like an extension of us!), which is why it’s so important to maintain our levels of Pre-Biotic.
What do Pre-Biotics do for our skin?
For healthy-looking skin, it’s important to ensure that skin has a good barrier function. Without it, the skin’s ecosystem has less protection, meaning that environmental aggressors like pollution can penetrate more easily and trigger damage and irritation.
Pre-Biotics protect and maintain the skin’s microbiome by only feeding the ‘good’ microflora, influencing the level of good-to-bad bacteria. This helps balance the skin’s delicate microbiome for optimum barrier function, resulting in healthy-looking skin.
What’s the difference between Pro-Biotics and Pre-Biotics?
Pro-Biotics are the ‘live’ bacteria most commonly found in the digestive system. They’re essential to good gut, skin and overall health.
Essentially, Pre-Biotics are ‘food’ for our good bacteria, so Pro-Biotics can’t survive without Pre-Biotics.
What Pre-Biotic is in the Superfood Skincare System?
The Pre-Biotic found in our Superfood range is a vegan-friendly, natural, sugar-derived Gluco-oligosaccharide. It has been shown in-vitro to stimulate the growth of ‘good’ microflora and is combined with nutrient-dense Superfoods to leave the complexion looking luminous and bright, with an outdoor-fresh glow.
We’re discovering more and more about the importance of Pre-Biotics in maintaining our ‘good’ microflora, helping it to better absorb food, improve skin barrier function, immune system, and our overall health.
