With all the talk lately about probiotic health for our digestive tract it just makes sense that we provide the same benefits to the outer organ as well: OUR SKIN!
In the next few paragraphs I've incerted from Dr. Ben Johnson's monthly newsletter at Osmosis, you will learn of a key ingredient in the Osmosis product line that is a natural probiotic for the skin and is also a good source of collagen stimulation and antioxidant protection. Read on...
Quoted text: "It was once thought that all bacteria were harmful. With modern science we now know better and most of us take our probiotics to help maintain healthy gut flora which improves our immunity. What about our skin though? People go to great lengths to rid their skin of bacteria with anti-bacterial face soaps, peroxide based solutions and even prescriptive antibiotics. There are estimated to be around 1,000 different types of bacteria on our skin. Some of them can be harmful to us by causing an infection but most are beneficial and help improve our immune system.
Chlorella Vulgaris, green algae, is a probiotic thatmaintains the good bacteria helping keep balanced and healthy skin. We use Chlorella Vulgaris throughout the Osmosis line not only for its promotion of healthy bacteria but also for its antioxidant and collagen production abilities. It can be found in our Treatment A Serums, Replenish, Repair and Facial Infusion Dermal Therapy. We also use Lactic acid at gentle doses that encourages a healthy pH for good bacteria to thrive. Get healthier skin by encouraging the presence of good bacteria which strengthens and protects the skin. "
So come on in and get your "Probiotic Facial" today and keep your good skin surface bacteria in check. =)
Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend.
