The probiotic skincare revolution
Nutritional cosmetics are a large and strongly growing segment of the personal care market. Over the years, more scientific evidence has emerged that probiotic bacteria have a positive effect on the skin, both from oral and topical applications. In times of urbanization, with increased stress levels and a seemingly growing number of negative environmental influences, such as pollution, people are more and more concerned about keeping their skin healthy. They understand the need and the advantages of “feeding” the skin with beneficial probiotic ingredients from cosmetic skincare formulations.
CLR started research on probiotic lysates and their positive effects on skin 40 years ago, and continues to do so until today. Probiotic active ingredients from CLR combine effectiveness, science and biomimetics with biotechnology, sustainability and naturalness. They are the perfect choice for a wide variety of skincare concepts with a focus on skin health and wellness.
