We all know that pollution is bad for our health. But did you know that it can also take a toll on our skin? Just like the rest of your body, your skin is vulnerable to the negative effects of pollution. No worries anti-pollution is here for the rescue.

Exposure to pollution can cause a variety of skin problems, including premature aging, inflammation, and even acne. Luckily, there are a number of ways to protect your skin from pollution. One of the best ways is to use skincare products that are specifically designed to defend against pollution.

In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to some of the best ingredients for anti-pollution skincare. We’ll also give you some tips on how to choose the right products for your individual needs. Keep reading to learn more!

Types of Pollution That Can Affect Your Skin


There are two main types of pollution that can damage your skin: outdoor pollution and indoor pollution. Outdoor pollution includes things like car exhaust, smog, and dust. Indoor pollution includes things like cleaning chemicals, mold, and secondhand smoke.

Both types of pollution can cause a variety of skin problems, including premature aging, inflammation, and acne. That’s why it’s important to use skincare products that are specifically formulated to protect against pollution. But with so many products on the market, how do you know which ones are right for you?

A guide to anti-pollution skincare

Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for anti-pollution skincare products:

Choose products that contain antioxidants. Antioxidants help neutralize the free radicals that are created by exposure to pollution. Free radicals can damage your skin cells and lead to premature aging. Some good antioxidant ingredients to look for include vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea extract, resveratrol and hydroxytyrosol.

Look for products that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients. Inflammation is another common side effect of exposure to pollution. Ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile and our proprietary metabiotics can help soothe inflamed skin.

If you have acne-prone skin, choose products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients can help reduce breakouts caused by exposure to pollutants.

Final note on anti-pollution skincare

There’s no doubt about it: pollution is bad for your skin. But luckily, there are a number of ways to protect yourself from its harmful effects. One of the best ways is to use skincare products that are specifically designed to defend against pollution.

When shopping for anti-pollution skincare products, look for those that contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. If you have acne-prone skin, choose products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. By taking these simple steps, you can help keep your skin looking healthy and radiant—no matter how polluted the world around you may be!

Selma Durmo M. Pharm

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Clean

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claim visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”

Transparency

The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”

Sustainable

We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!

Technology

Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
