BASF explores two new biotic active ingredients derived from the Lactobacillus crispatus bacterium
Care products with biotic ingredients have gained enormous popularity since they are known for improving health and wellness and are associated with eco-friendliness. More specifically, consumers are seeking products that naturally target the biological ageing process of the skin. Two new biotic active ingredients derived from the Lactobacillus crispatus (LC) bacterium are supporting cosmetics manufacturers in successfully responding to this trend.
Probiolift™, (INCI: Maltodextrin (and) Lactobacillus), helps to increase dermal density and correct forehead wrinkles. Postbiolift™ (INCI: Maltodextrin and Lactobacillus ferment) is proven to boost skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles and help decrease the melanin index of pigmentated spots. They are among the first biotic dermocosmetic ingredients derived from bacteria that are naturally present on the skin. Probiolift in particular is a game changer in the field of healthy-ageing skin care since it is based on a living skin bacterium.
The skin microbiome plays an important role for health and wellbeing. It hosts millions of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, and it acts as a protective shield against environmental threats e.g. by pathogenic microorganisms.
