WHAT IS VITAMIN C?
Post-biotics are the chemical by-products of bacteria, such as antimicrobial peptides and fragments of dead bacterial cells that remain on the skin. These by-products are created when healthy bacteria in the skin microbiome come into contact with new molecules. The healthy bacteria effectively ‘eats’ the new molecule and produces a by-product.
Post-biotic skincare is still fairly untapped by lots of skincare brands as the technology is new and expensive, however it’s already providing incredible (and more effective) alternatives to more commonly used skincare elements making it quite the star ingredient.
