What is Postbiotic Skincare

What is Postbiotic Skincare (and Why Should You Care?)

Ever heard the phrase, “Beauty is more than skin deep?” They probably weren’t talking about postbiotic skincare when they said it, but they may as well have been.

This innovative approach, gaining momentum in Australia, offers more than just surface-level benefits. Here’s why understanding postbiotics could be the turning point in your skincare journey.

Unlocking the Potential of Postbiotics:

At the core of postbiotic skincare lies a fascinating scientific principle. Postbiotics are the non-living byproducts of probiotic bacteria. These compounds, including peptides, enzymes, and organic acids, are not just remnants; they’re potent agents that interact with the skin’s microbiome. This interaction plays a pivotal role in skin health, influencing everything from moisture retention to immune response. By modulating the skin’s defence mechanisms, postbiotics can significantly reduce inflammation and enhance healing.

Why Your Skin Needs Postbiotics:

Understanding the benefits of postbiotics opens up new avenues for skin care. Their ability to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier is particularly vital. This reinforcement provides resilience against environmental stressors like pollution and UV rays (and, if you’re in Australia like us, you’ll know those stressors quite intimately).

The barrier enhancement also helps in retaining moisture, ensuring that your skin remains hydrated and supple. This dual action of protection and hydration is essential for maintaining a youthful, radiant complexion.

SAOR’s Postbiotic Skincare Range

Incorporating postbiotics into a skincare regimen is made simple with SAOR’s thoughtfully curated product range. The Everyday Moisturiser, for example, is a perfect blend of postbiotic science and nature’s best. It features ingredients like Lactobacillus/Diospyros Kaki (Persimmon) Extract and Lactobacillus/Papaya Carica Fruit Ferment Filtrate, known for their antioxidant and brightening properties. These ingredients work in synergy with Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Powder and Propanediol to soothe and hydrate the skin. Additionally, the infusion of Olive-derived emollients and Squalane enhances the skin’s natural barrier, providing deep moisturisation and conditioning.

Embracing Postbiotic Cleansing and Serum Solutions

The journey with postbiotic skincare extends beyond moisturisation. Our Cleanser, for instance, was made with the express purpose of being gentle yet effective skincare. It uses natural cleansing agents like Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate and Decyl Glucoside, ensuring a creamy lather that cleanses without stripping the skin. The presence of Lactobacillus/Papaya Carica Fruit Ferment Filtrate offers gentle exfoliation, while Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride and Cetearyl Alcohol provide skin conditioning. Embracing postbiotics allows for a more potent cleanse, but one less likely to irritate skin or cause any redness.

Similarly, The Serum is a powerhouse of postbiotic innovation. It features a blend of antioxidant-rich ingredients like Lactobacillus/Diospyros Kaki and Lactobacillus/Papaya Carica Fruit Ferment Filtrate for skin brightening. The serum also includes moisturising agents like Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Oil, along with skin repair elements like Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil and Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Extract.

So, Should You Jump on The Postbiotic Wagon?

Any of our own vested interests aside, embracing postbiotic skincare is more than adopting a trend; it’s a commitment to understanding and nourishing your skin at a deeper level. With SAOR’s range of postbiotic skincare products, this commitment becomes a delightful journey of discovery and transformation, tailored to be a simple but powerful solution for your skin.
