It is estimated that atopic dermatitis affects 20% of children and 10% of adults globally.
Dry, damaged and atopic skin is often a result of a disturbed balance in the microbiome. Imbalances in the microbiome are problematic since it allows bad bacteria (such as Staphylococcus aureus) to multiply and outnumber the good bacteria. This impairs and sometimes damages the immune system and barrier function of the skin, which can lead to various skin problems.
At Bak Probiotic Skincare we look at skin in an innovative way and adds billions of live good probiotic bacteria topically to protect and restore the natural skin microbiome.
The skin microbiome (ecosystem) contains both good and bad bacteria. a microbiome in balance offers protection against bad bacteria and ensures a healthier and less irritated skin.
Topically applying live probiotic bacteria on the skin of those who lack the natural defenses against bad bacteria is a new and more natural way to fight the problem of increasing skin problems caused by microbiome imbalances.
Our probiotic strain, Lactobacillus plantarum LB244R, has shown very promising activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other pathogens.
