Probiotics in Skincare: The Newest Trend in Beauty

Piece of white paper with black letters writing probiotics

You may have heard of probiotics in relation to gut health, but did you know that these little microbes can also be beneficial for your skin? In recent years, the use of probiotics in skincare has become a popular trend, and for good reason. Here’s everything you need to know about this new beauty craze.

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are live microorganisms (aka “good” bacteria) that are similar to the ones that naturally occur in your body. These good bacteria are essential for gut health, but they also play a role in keeping your skin healthy. When applied topically, probiotics can help to restore the balance of microbes on your skin, which can improve skin barrier function and reduce inflammation.

Benefits of Probiotics for Skin

There are many potential benefits of using probiotics on your skin. Probiotics can help to:

-Reduce inflammation
-Strengthen the skin barrier
-Fight acne-causing bacteria
-Brighten the skin
-Even out the complexion

How to Incorporate Probiotics into Your Skincare Routine

If you’re interested in trying out probiotic skincare for yourself, there are a few different ways to do so. Look for products that contain live cultures of Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium, two types of probiotic bacteria that are commonly used in skincare products. You can also find products that contain prebiotics, which are non-digestible fibers that act as food for probiotic bacteria. Some examples of prebiotic ingredients include chicory root extract, green banana extract, and yacon root extract. Prebiotic + probiotic combination products are also available.

Should you opt for probiotics in skincare

If you’re looking for a way to give your skincare routine a boost, consider incorporating probiotics into your regime. Probiotics offer many potential benefits for the skin, including reduced inflammation, a stronger skin barrier, and improved complexion. You can find probiotic skincare products that contain live cultures of Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium or look for products that contain prebiotic ingredients like chicory root extract or green banana extract. Prebiotic + probiotic combination products are also available. Give probiotics a try and see if you notice a difference in your skin!

About author

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.”

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 claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


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.”


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!


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.
