The use of probiotics began in the 20th century. The World Health Organization defines them as living microorganisms that improve health when used in the right concentration (1).

Their use is mainly aimed at improving the function of the gastrointestinal tract (2), but in recent years they have been used successfully to improve the condition of skin suffering from acne, atopic dermatitis, rosacea and others. These therapies are based on a number of studies that show that probiotics are also good for the skin. Probiotics have thus become one of the leading substances in some creams, lotions and toothpastes (3). The most commonly used yogurt bacterium – Lactobacillus, bacterial metabolites – hyaluronic acid and lactic acid, and prebiotics – sugars and fiber to nourish the beneficial bacteria. They are used to treat skin diseases, to improve oral hygiene and as anti-aging products. Probitocytes also help in faster epithelialization of the skin in case of burns, scars, improvement of local skin immunity and protection from ultraviolet rays (2). There are a large number of studies that show that they are very useful in the treatment of atopic dermatitis when used orally (3).

Their role is related to the skin microbiome, which is a balanced ecosystem of beneficial and opportunistic bacteria that together protect the skin from infections and external agents. The microbiome is a collection of different microorganisms, mainly represented by 4 types of bacteria. A number of studies show that the imbalance in the balance of the skin microbiome causes a number of skin diseases – acne, atopic dermatitis, venous ulcers and others.

Factors that lead to imbalance of the skin microbiome are age, lifestyle, use of various cosmetic products with harmful synthetic ingredients, as well as the peculiarities of different anatomical skin localizations (4).

The disease that is most often affected by changes in the composition and balance of the skin microbiome is acne. Acne occurs in 80% of adolescents (5, 6) and remains in 20% for life. The changes that occur in the lipid components and the multiplication of the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes are the main causes of acne.

Thanks to new technologies and research, it has already been created SNOWBORN SKINBIOTICS , cosmetics for the treatment of acne, which is 99% natural and contains probiotics, prebiotics, postbiotics, proteins and peptides. The probiotics contained in the products are Lactobacillus and Bifidus enzymes, which aim to support the growth of beneficial bacteria and suppress pathogenic strains. They have been shown to improve skin hydration and help maintain a normal pH. Clinical tests show up to 70% effectiveness in just 4 weeks
