Dedicated Probiotics. Beauty from Within

With the broadening research, there are now more and more scientific evidence of probiotic effects for skin health. The mechanisms of action of specific strains trigger in the gut a chain reaction that’s going to communicate with the skin (the skin-gut axis). For example, specific combinations of probiotic strains have antioxidant effect or can maintain gut barrier integrity.

Skin appearance and skin changes can sometimes reflect the status of overall health. Several human clinical studies showed links between skin disorders and gut disorders. Chronic inflammation can change the skin’s pH levels, and changes in diet or poor diets in general, among other factors, can create an imbalance in the skin microbiota, resulting in infections or skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, and rosacea. Paying close attention to skin changes is a way to pay attention to its overall health. In the same way skin care and preventive actions are accessible ways to help take care of overall skin health.


Unique 3-strains formula improves skin firmness and fine texture

As skin ages, it becomes thinner, decreases in volume and elasticity, is more easily damaged and less able to heal itself. A validated comprehensive grading scale has categorized the clinical findings of skin aging as laxity (sagging), rhytids (wrinkles), and the various facets of photoaging, including erythema (redness), and telangiectasia, dyspigmentation (brown discoloration), solar elastosis (yellowing), keratoses (abnormal growths) and poor texture. Every skin age at a different pace, with various visible signs of aging – this is normal.

Mechanistic and animal data suggest that the Healthy Skin Aging formula strains can individually directly influence pathogen‐host interaction, modulate the immune pathways, primarily by down‐regulating pro‐inflammatory responses, and help maintain the protective gut barrier.

A specific formula that contains three flagship strains, L. rhamnosus GG, L. helveticus Lafti® L10 and L. paracasei Lafti® L26, contributes to maintenance of skin appearance, improves skin firmness and fine texture. This probiotic formula is combined with vitamin C that contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, and selenium which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.

A combination of strains with antioxidant properties and that support natural defenses and barrier function can support general skin health/healthy aging. A combination of strains can be recommended for skin imperfections, supporting stress resiliency, gut health and natural defenses. Probiotic that supports immunity and barrier function can be used for sensitive skin and a combination of strains can be used to prevent and inhibit atopic lesions.
