Exuviance Probiotic Lysate Anti-Pollution Essence is a concentrated daily essence that targets the skin microbiome to help re-balance, moisturise and strengthen the skin. “Bacteria for beauty” and topical probiotic products are part of a growing global trend to improve overall skin health by alleviating oxidative stress and improving the barrier function. Essences are a new product form and are used at the beginning of a skin regimen, between a toner (if used) and a serum. Recommended for all skin types.
Key ingredients include Probiotic of Lysate, found naturally in yoghurt, which targets the skin’s microbiome to help re-balance and optimise a healthy skin appearance. Gluconolactone, a Poly Hydroxy Acid (PHA) is an antioxidant that enhances skin health and resiliency: chelates oxidation promoting metals; strengthens the barrier, hydrates/moisturises and has skin conditioning benefits. Hyaluronic Acid, a hydrating glycosaminoglycan attracts water to the surface of the skin, quenching dryness. Biosaccharide Gum-1 is a polysaccharide derived from plants and provides hydration due to its humectant and film forming effects (like HA). Lightly scented with leafy green cucumber and lily of the valley. Paraben-free. Non-irritating.
Dr Webster’s Recommendation: I am very excited by this new topical probiotic product from Exuviance. Recent clinical studies show that our skin health is not only directly impacted by UV radiation and smoking but also by other environmental aggressors such as urban pollution. I am seeing an increased number of patients with sensitive skins in my practice and this requires a new paradigm. A healthy skin barrier makes for a resilient skin and it takes a multi-prong approach to achieve this: hydration, protection against the environment aggressors using antioxidants and also a skin probiotic that helps to keep the microbiome balanced. This new water-soluble essence contains all of these elements to help diminish environmental skin ageing and to increase the skin’s resiliency. It is also important to use a high factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to help protect the skin from UV radiation.
