Probiotics, Now In Your Skin Care Products?
Probiotics were originally known for restoring the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract; however they are making their way into our topical skin care products. Bioecolia, an alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, obtained from natural sugars was one ingredient in many skin care formulas. Bioecolai promotes beneficial flora of the skin during times of stress and exposure to airborne bacteria. Many see probiotics as a more holistic way of treating health conditions, including those affecting the skin.
