In the past few years, there has been an increasing number of brands entering the skincare market that contain probiotics as their active ingredient.
By definition, probiotics are live bacterial cultures that influence the composition of flora. In relation to skincare, probiotic bacteria produce compounds like lactic acid to reduce the skin’s pH. Creating a more acidic environment discourages the growth of bacteria, and helps flora grow. In turn, when skin is bacteria free, it is also stress-free and can perform other physiological functions like collagen production.
LaFlore Skincare targets skin’s microbiome with the power of probiotics. The American Academy of Dermatology has dubbed probiotics the new beauty breakthrough, optimizing skin’s natural barrier function as well as addressing acne and rosacea. LaFlore optimizes the skin with just three products. Let’s check them out.
LaFlore Probiotic Cleanser is a natural, mild cleanser with a sugar beet and coconut oil base. It contains pineapple extract to exfoliate, antimicrobial essential oils, like cinnamon, clove, rosemary, thyme, lemongrass and spearmint, perilla seed oil to provide relief from redness, irritation, and inflammation, and a probiotic cocktail to promote cell renewal and skin hydration. The cleanser has a creamy, gel-like texture with a minty scent. This cleanser is great to use in the morning to awaken your skin and your senses! It rinses clean with no residue and did not leave my skin feeling tight or dry.
LaFlore Probiotic Daily Defense Moisturizer protects your skin from the harshness of environmental stressors like pollution. It contains aloe to heal the skin, pycnogenol to prevent UV-induced edema, hyaluronic acid to moisturize and probiotic cocktail B to soothe, calm, increase cellular respiration and collagen synthesis. This moisturizer has a gel-like texture and absorbs quickly into the skin with no greasy feel. It is lightweight, perfect for oily skin types.
LaFlore Probiotic Serum Concentrate increases cell communication and calms inflammation that allows the skin to rest and heal. It contains hemp seed oil, sea buckthorn fruit oil, St. John’s oil, avocado oil, and squalane to heal the skin, the platinum peptide to increase cell metabolism and probiotic cocktail C to stimulate skin self-renewal, stimulate skin protein production and accelerate skin barrier recovery.
