The composition of the microbiome in healthy skin varies depending on age and body area, with distinctions in the microbiota of sebaceous, moist, and dry regions. Lifestyle factors, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, and skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis (AD) also influence the skin microbiome. Recent findings increasingly suggest the potential benefits of topical applications of biotics as skincare products, including next-generation probiotics such as heat-treated strains and their key components or compounds, which may offer significant skin benefits. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy, both in vitro and in vivo, of Skinbac™ Care, which includes HT Limosilactobacillus reuteri (Skinbac™ SB02), Bifidobacterium breve (Skinbac™ SB03), and Ligilactobacillus salivarius (Skinbac™ SB04).

Additionally, to evaluate the effectiveness of Skinbac™ Care in reducing trans- epidermal water loss (TEWL) in vivo, measurements were obtained both before and after a single application, with a 30- minute interval. The results indicated a statistically significant decrease (improvement) of 29.2% in the mean baseline TEWL values following the single application of the product.

CONCLUSION: The collected results show that Skinbac™ Care plays a key role in maintaining barrier regulation and integrity and providing moisturizing and antioxidant effects. These findings suggest its potential in promoting overall skin health.
