A Diverse Microbiome and Good Skin Health Go Hand-In-Hand

Cosmetic products with prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics may be beneficial in treating eczema, reported a key-note speaker and physician at the Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference held in 2018 in Las Vegas.

Cosmetic products contain preservatives that prevent bacterial contamination. Because of that, it is not possible to have live bacteria in skincare products,” said Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital’s department of dermatology. “We have data showing that probiotics including some prebiotics, some probiotic extract and even select postbiotics are all beneficial in treating eczema.”

“All of our skin care products contain living probiotics. The science is the same but the technology is new. That is why we are seeing results above and beyond the norm..” – Billy Kutivan, Co-founder, Protekt Worldwide Inc.


Protekt Worldwide’s large selection of external probiotic products all support living probiotics inside of each solution from foot care to the skin repair serum. Each solution is packed with a powerful health experience through living probiotics as is obvious from our extensive collection of reviews by verified consumers.

  • Prebiotics are high-fiber food for live bacteria.
  • Probiotic extract is the non-living bacterial lysate along with the medium in which it grew or fermented, that contains beneficial byproducts of the once living probiotics.
  • Postbiotics is a relatively new term that refers to soluble metabolic byproducts of probiotic bacteria, short chain fatty acids and enzymes that are released after bacterial lysis or secreted by live bacteria. Postbiotics have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help improve physiological functions.

The main takeaway he left us with was that clinicians need to keep in mind that there are beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that help in the overall treatment of the skin and in our regular skin care regimens

“We know that a diverse microbiome is associated with skin health, and overgrowth of abnormal bacteria is associated with skin disease,” Zeichner said. “Addressing the microbiome is an important part of treating skin disease, along with traditional moisturizers and anti-inflammatory products.”
