fermentation-based skincare

We build each formula around our proprietary Biotic Broths™, powered by probiotic bacteria + botanicals, fungi and superfoods in a unique bio-fermentation process that results in easily absorbed, nutrient dense broths that support the biome.

The broths are then combined with advanced actives and bio-based ingredients, to create sophisticated, super-charged products that work with the natural biology of your skin. Within days, skin is transformed to look healthier, smoother and more radiant.

what is fermentation-based skincare?

Fermentation is a natural process by which microorganisms break down materials and create new ones while producing energy. This ancient transformative process used in food, beverages and medicine since the beginning of time is also a process used in biotech to create new materials.

Bio activation

Fermentation increases the potency, nutrition and penetration of the material being fermented, making them both more efficacious and safer. We combine medicinal plants, fungi and super foods into our fermentation vessels to bio-activate them for better activity on the skin.

The broths are then combined with advanced actives and bio-based ingredients, to create sophisticated, super-charged products that work with the natural biology of your skin. Within days, skin is transformed to look healthier, smoother and more radiant.


Post-biotic metabolite nutrition

Microorganisms create metabolites (post-biotics) that contain rich amounts of amino acids, organic acids, enzyme, vitamins, peptides and expolysaccahrides that nourish the body and have powerful skin benefits.


Bacteria cell lysates

Probiotic bacteria (like the ones we use: Lactobacillus and bifida) have a positive impact on skin microbiome balance among other things. Studies have shown this effect whether or not that bacteria is live or dead (cell lysates).

  • balancing skin microbiota
  • reinforcing barrier integrity, ceramide production
  • increasing skin immunity
  • reducing wrinkles, increasing smoothness, decreasing pigmentation
  • re-modeling epidermal and dermal cells

Clean and sustainable

Bio-made materials are safer, cleaner and contribute to a circular system. It is also the design tool of the future for healthier foods, medicines and even building materials.

Microbiome Science - Petri Dish With Probiotic Bacteria

microbiome science

We are home to trillions of organisms and they are home to us. Our microbiome is our ally. We developed a symbiotic relationship with our bacteria. Ongoing medical research is uncovering just how deeply we depend on our bacteria for our health and well-being. Our biome produces elements such as vitamins, protective molecules and immune factors that are essential for healthy skin functioning.

So much more needs to be discovered, but one thing is true: a dynamically balanced microbiome is a healthy one.

How to maintain healthy balanced biome?

  • support the biological acid mantel of the skin by keeping pH lower (pH: 4.5-5)
  • feed it properly with prebiotics, post-biotic nutrients and metabolites
  • don’t kill bacteria with preservatives or harsh chemicals; seek gentle treatments
  • boost your biome with commensal power; probiotic species or lysates

Feed it biophile™.
