A Holistic Approach to Formulating for the Beauty Microbiome
The synergy between the skin and its individual network of commensal microflora has become a trending topic and many different Probiotic, Prebiotic and Postbiotic approaches are offered to support this diverse skin environment. However, there can be a conflict between the addition of live bacteria to a formulation, the legal requirements of a safely preserved cosmetic product and the subsequent effects on the skin microbiome. With consumer and regulatory pressures changing how people seek to preserve products, not just in personal care but in markets ranging from home goods to fertilizers, emerging preservatives and “non-preservative” technologies are being more commonly applied.
Data on Histone Deacetylases (HDAC), which support commensal microflora and barrier function, and 16S ribosomal RNA metagenomic analysis highlight the influence of topical preparations on composition of the microbiome. This evidence supports the understanding that traditional biocides can cause bacteria cell wall disruption without target, killing both the “good” and the “bad” present on the skin.
In response to this, sister companies Active Micro Technologies and Active Concepts are offering a more holistic approach to formulating for the Beauty Microbiome, combining fermentation derived natural antimicrobial actives and global metabolic stimulants to help support the intricate system of microorganisms unique to each person’s skin.

Hyalurosmooth™ – The mindful way to cope with everyday stress
In a BASF survey of 100 volunteers, 90 percent reported that stress had a negative effect on their skin, causing it to turn dull and dry. Daily stresses are known to translate into cutaneous stress, with cortisol as its main mediator. Hyalurosmooth® suppresses excessive cortisol release and re-activates the synthesis of collagen I and hyaluronic acid. Bringing the positive effect of a mindful lifestyle – rested from the inside – Hyalurosmooth helps the skin recover its hydration and radiance. Extracted from the Indian Cassia angustifolia, Hyalurosmooth is IECIC listed.
