Lactococcus Ferment Lysate is a post-biotic ingredient derived from Gram-positive bacteria, Lactococcus lactis. It is used in skincare for its ability to increase the speed of epidermal growth, leading to a thicker stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin), and in turn better barrier function. This is seen as healthier-looking, more hydrated and supple skin. Lactococcus ferment lysate sits in a class of probiotic ingredients which can be found on ingredients lists as bifida ferment lysate and lactobacillus ferment.
Probiotics are live beneficial microorganisms that provide various health benefits when applied to the skin. In skincare products, probiotics are used to support the skin's microbiome and promote overall skin health.
Probiotics offer benefits such as: - Help maintain a balanced and healthy skin microbiome by supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria. - Strengthen the skin's natural defense against harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of skin issues like acne and inflammation. - Enhance the skin's barrier function, improving its resilience and protection against environmental stressors. - Have soothing properties, helping to calm and alleviate skin irritation and redness.
