Why are probiotics good for your skin?
From kimchi to kombucha to sake (fermented rice), probiotics are super-beneficial ingredients for healthy, happy skin. These friendly bacteria thrive when the conditions are perfect and also occur naturally in your digestive tract and gut.
Did you know that there is a link between our digestive tract and the health of our skin? When your gut isn’t working properly (absorbing nutrients, eliminating toxins), your body isn’t able to fight off bad bacteria that can lead to inflammation. Probiotics are an important part of our overall gut microbiota that support proper digestion, immune regulation, skin health and much more.
We can see here that probiotics are absolutely essential for a healthy gut, and it follows that they are just as important for healthy skin. It’s true, and that’s precisely why we use natto beans (a lesser-known legume) as a probiotic that supports a natural biome and is also a rich source of polyglutamic acid.
As the supercharged sister of hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid contains tons of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This skin powerhouse is such a star that we’ve formulated an entire skincare line around it! Our watermelon + cucumber skincare trio is powered by the power couple of clean skincare ingredients – polyglutamic acid from natto beans and hyaluronic acid from sweet potatoes.
Our water-locking serum, moisturizer and mist combine watermelon and cucumber hydrosols to help restore, soothe and refresh skin while locking in moisture for hydration that lasts. This trio includes:
Watermelon + Cucumber Water Lock Serum: locks in watermelon hydrosol to revitalize dehydrated skin cells with skin-plumping polyglutamic acid from fermented natto beans and moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid.
Watermelon + Cucumber Water-Locking Moisturizer: locks in watermelon hydrosol and polyglutamic acid to naturally restore skin elasticity, promote cell regeneration and reduce signs of aging.
Watermelon + Cucumber Water Locking Mist: naturally invigorates dehydrated skin cells and reduces signs of aging by locking in cactus juice, watermelon hydrosol and hyaluronic acid.
