You can’t buy a probiotic for your skin. Why? By definition, probiotics contain live bacteria.For safety reasons, it’s against the law to sell skincare products containing live bacteria.
We test every product sold to make sure it is clean and free of bacteria and mold.
Our sea kelp bioferment is filtered carefully to terminate fermentation and remove bacteria. We can call it “prebiotic” because it may promote the growth of good bacteria, but not “probiotic”.
How come some companies sell skincare probiotics? Easy: they lie.
You can make a nice probiotic mask at home, a good excuse to relax.
Mix the following:
- 1 cup yogurt (full fat, plain)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (or rosehip if you have it)
- If you don’t mind the fishy smell, you can add some fish eggs for extra nutrition.
If you are lucky and have access to Skin Actives products, you can add other actives to this mask, like salicin, CoQ10, or an active that will work for what your skin needs.
Mix well and apply to your face and neck (your hair would love it too, but you will need a shower).
This mask contains the yogurt bacteria (Lactobacillus and other related species), lactic acid, essential fatty acids, and nutrients galore.
Have a good nap!
