Prebiotic Skincare Products

Welcome back to our natural skincare blog! When it comes to skincare there are several factors to consider: chemistry, packaging, texture, and of course ingredients. If you’re going to do the work and succeed on your journey to having healthy skin you have to educate yourself on some things, prebiotics being one of them. So, what do we mean by prebiotic skincare? This is a type of organic skincare that utilizes prebiotics to feed and nourish healthy bacteria on the surface of the skin. Prebiotics as a whole restore the skin microbiome, which can often help to heal common skin conditions and revitalize the skin from the inside out.

Note: Probiotics are the good bacteria in and on the body that keep our bodies balanced and healthy. Having both prebiotics and probiotics are fundamental to being healthy and youthful, having both is essential.

What are some of the key benefits of applying prebiotics to the skin? Keeping the surface of the skin, as its first line of defense both balanced, younger-looking, and strong. Offset factors that lead to redness, dryness, and a weakened surface. Ward off signs of aging skin and restores a healthy balance of good bacteria.

When determining which skincare products to use that support the use of prebiotics, it is good to look for skincare products with prebiotic plant sugars, such as xylitol, rhamnose, and a large group of ingredients known as fructooligosaccharides (particularly found in berries) See our blog on What is a Balanced Lifestyle and Why is it Important for good fruits to consume to help with anti-aging.

How does prebiotics work in skincare?

“On top of our skin’s physical barrier is a natural bacterium tier that assists and advances healthy skin function. Washing your face in excess, ruthless exfoliation, and even chemical peels can diminish our skin’s probiotic state, causing acne, extremely dry, flakey skin, and even rosacea, the development of inflammation, the number one factor of aging skin. Almost identical to how probiotics handle and deter stomach problems, topical versions are known to have calming effects by applying an outpouring of good bacteria to assist cells in thriving. When you have a happy skin barrier, it can manage your skin’s oil production, keeping it hydrated and protected from free radicals.” (

Lastly, “…with all the balancing probiotic skincare does for your skin, it only makes sense that probiotics also balance your pH levels. As your skin ages, its pH becomes higher and thus unbalanced. This also leaves the skin susceptible to lower collagen production, a loss of elasticity, and more damage. Probiotics help to lower your pH levels, leaving your skin stronger and leveled out. A level pH balance also helps the rest of your skincare products work better, which means more moisture from your moisturizing creams and better results from your skin serums and exfoliants!” (
