The specific care of skin microbiota as a beauty concept is challenging current perceptions about the role of bacteria and microorganism in the skin.

Cosmetics are no longer focusing only on human epidermis, but considering the effect of products on skin environment, which varies a lot among people and it is unique, like fingerprint.

This work aims at presenting the evidence of effectiveness towards a new cosmetic ingredient, based on the probiotic strain Lactobacillus rhamnosus LRH020. Specially designed for promoting the skin ecosystem’s well-being, the result is the novel ability to strengthen the skin barrier and its natural defences by rebalancing skin microbiota.

Targeting modern cosmetics with a revolutionizing holistic approach, EquiBiotics® LRh is a probiotic-derived ingredient obtained from L. rhamnosus LRH020 specific strain, selected for its strain-specific activity focused on the protection from skin pathogens and modulation of the immune response.

It is developed through an innovative biotechnological process that preserves the structural integrity and, at the same time, amplify its cosmetic sensorial properties.

This innovative approach considers the skin as a unique ecosystem, opening to ever-higher demand to include in cosmetics formulas microorganisms as an ingredient that can positively interact with skin microflora population living on and in the skin layer.
