Preserve our microbiome

Nowadays, known as an organ in its own, the role of the microbiota has already been identified in several types of diseases, ranging from obesity to diabetes, through psoriasis, allergies and even anxiety. The cutaneous microbiota, true health capital, is acquired at birth, and populates the whole body in about two minutes, with some different populations of microorganisms depending on the area of ​​the body. The microorganisms interact with each other and with cells of the body, particularly with those involved in the immune system. From Its complex balance depends the health of the skin and the preservation of its barrier function.

The microbiota weakened by hygiene products

Yet, a simple shower with a classic shower gel can be the equivalent of a hurricane for microorganisms living on our skin, damaging this natural ecosystem and disrupting the resident microbial composition.

Hygiene products at alkaline pH (such as Bicarbonate) destroy this fragile balance and predispose to a number of skin infections and inflammatory conditions. Similarly, antibacterial products such as Triclosan (soon banned in the USA), solutions containing a lot of alcohol (especially one containing a lot of essential oils) or some very aggressive preservatives eliminate bacteria on the skin, leaving it unprotected against pathogenic germs.

A revolution towards immuno-cosmetic

What is good for our digestive system is also true for our skin. Research on the cutaneous microbiota has demonstrated the many benefits of probiotics used in  topical application products. Created through the fermentation under specific conditions of certain plants by lactic acid bacteria or by yeasts, the probiotic cosmetic active agents have multiple beneficial effects on the health of the skin : their regulating action of the bacterial flora, their moisturizing power, their antioxidant property and their anti-inflammatory action.

Probiotic ferments act by protecting the homeostasis of the cutaneous microbiota. They promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms for the epidermis by providing them with nutritional supplements and / or inhibiting the development of opportunistic bacteria responsible for imbalances. Probiotics by protecting the microbiota will enable it to fulfill its role: fight against external aggressions such as pollution, stress, alimentation or viruses.

Biosme Probiotic range, your health alliance of the microbiota

By developing the range of Biosme probiotic care, we have sought to offer more than simple, effective and natural hygiene care. The care products of the Biosme probiotic range respects the natural slightly acidic pH of the skin. Their formulas without controversial ingredients preserve the lipid film of the dermis. Thanks to the Pro-active Déo complex, which combines lactobacilli and saccharomyces, Biosme's probiotic cares prevent the development of the bacteria responsible for sweat odors by biological action without disturbing the natural microbiota in order to ensure its protective role. The assurance of perfect hygiene that preserves the health of your skin.
