DEFENSIL®-PURE – a Postbiotic Active Ingredient for Sensitive Skin


Very dry atopic skin suffers constantly from physical damage and weakened skin barrier. Dry skin can suffer considerably if the skin microbiota is out of balance. Unwanted microorganisms can proliferate faster than the beneficial microbes can prevent them doing so. This allows bacteria entering deeper layers of the stratum corneum, causing adverse inflammatory reactions by activating the inflammasome. Persistently inflamed and rashes are the consequences. Exposure to postbiotic fermentation products like short chain fatty acids can support the growth of beneficial bacteria, reducing the space available to intruders. Therefore, DEFENSIL®-PURE act like prebiotics, promoting the proliferation mainly of Staphylococcus epidermidis, a prerequisite for a healthy skin microbiota.
