Using good bacteria to fight bad bacteria in skincare?

Posted by Sandy Hippo on

We developed a spot treatment gel using good bacteria, Bacillus Ferment & Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, to fight off acne formation.These ferment filtrates are derived from the ferment of a certain type of bacteria strain, called Pseudoalteromonas.

This ingredients are very useful to reduce sebum production, which helps control oil buildup and shine on oily or acne-prone skin.

In Vivo Tests

  • 22 Caucasian female volunteers with combination skin were given a cream containing 2% Bacillus Ferment & Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, and applied to half their face, while a placebo cream was applied to the other half. Using a light reflectance principle, a 28.3% reduction in skin gloss was observed immediately, and the mattifying effect was maintained after a 2 hour and 8 hour evaluation.
  • 20 female volunteers from ages 20-35, with both oily and Asian skin, were given a cream containing 3% Bacillus Ferment & Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate to apply to the face twice a day for 28 days. The number of active follicles and their total surface were studied using a sebum-sensitive adhesive film. At the end of the study, the number and total surface of active follicles were 9.5% and 27.2% lower.
