If you notice pimples, dry patches, dull skin, or redness, your skin microbiome could be to blame. Finally, an imbalanced microbiome compromises the skin barrier, which in turn leads to a weakened complexion. So what exactly is the skin microbiome? This invisible layer of billions of living microorganisms goes a long way in protecting your skin barrier and contributing to skin health. Read on to learn how you can take care of this important community and what products will help it thrive.

Affected skin appears dull, dry, red and reactive. It is often a consequence of environmental stressors (UV, pollution, climate) and lifestyle factors (sleep, stress, diet). Over-cleansing and stripping the skin of its natural oils can also compromise the skin barrier, leaving your skin prone to irritation.
The key to a healthy skin microbiome is maintaining a balance of good and bad bacteria. So when it comes to the skin microbiome, how do we strike the right balance? A daily regimen of probiotic skincare products helps restore and maintain the balance between the bacteria that live on the skin. Additionally, topical application of probiotics can help protect the skin’s moisture barrier and help it stay healthy with a balanced moisture level.
Our Kombucha Microbiome Collection features four products formulated to soothe skin and support the natural balance of the microbiome. The collection visibly replenishes the moisture barrier and supports it with pre-, pro*- and post-biotics to reveal an even and healthy-looking complexion. In this guide you can read more about pre-, pro* and post-biotics for skin care.

Main Constituents of the Kombucha Microbiome Collection
Formulated with kombucha, gentle botanicals and pre-, pro*- and post-biotics, the Kombucha Microbiome Collection is designed to balance the skin’s microbiome for a healthy-looking glow. Key ingredients in this collection include:
Pre-, Pro*- and Postbiotics
Pre, pro* and postbiotics help maintain the skin’s natural balance. Prebiotics are fuel for the good bacteria on the skin’s surface. They give energy to probiotics and allow your microbiome to thrive. Probiotics are good bacteria that support the skin’s moisture barrier. Small but powerful probiotics* act on the skin’s surface to visibly renew your complexion. Postbiotics are metabolites left behind by probiotics that leave skin looking refreshed.
Kombucha ferment is obtained from the fermentation of black tea. There are many benefits of kombucha for the skin. Rich in postbiotics, this superfood nourishes the skin’s microbiota, resulting in smoother, brighter, and more radiant skin’s appearance.
Ginger root is an antioxidant that revitalizes the skin’s appearance.
Jasmine Flower is a botanical that nourishes the skin, reducing the appearance of redness and calming dryness.
Rich in antioxidants, white tea helps maintain healthy-looking skin, fights dullness and promotes a glowing complexion.
Supporting botanical extracts
The botanical extracts in the Thai collection help minimize skin redness and are rich in antioxidants to increase protection against environmental stressors.
