What is a cleansing treatment?
It’s our fresh take on a cleanser that also treats your skin--keeping the skin’s microbiota balanced.
What is the microbiota?
The microbiota is a living ecosystem on the skin’s surface. The microbiota and skin live in harmony and they depend on each other for survival. It’s your skin’s natural defense system and unique to you—no two microbiotas are the same. When the microbiota is properly balanced, it is better able to fend off external aggressors and keep skin looking its best.
What happens when the balance is disrupted?
Disrupting this balance—with exposure to pollution and other aggressors—leads to a weakened skin defense system. This means the skin is less likely to protect itself. The skin’s barrier becomes weaker and more fragile, which can appear on the skin as dehydration, roughness, and more visible pores.
What’s the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
Prebiotics are food for the microbiota to keep a balanced environment.
Probiotics are live microorganisms. They can be found naturally in foods like yogurt, kefir, and cheese.
