Today’s guest is Eric Koepp, co-founder of Skinesa, who shared all about whether probiotic skincare really helps eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (TSW). He also shares how many “real” brands of probiotic skincare exist on the market and which are the real brands of probiotic skincare.
Over 30,000 probiotic skincare brands exist
The shocking fact is that there are over 30,000 probiotic skincare brands that exist – but there are only 2-3 real probiotic skincare brands on the market.
2 of the real probiotic skincare brands are Mother Dirt and Bak.
Eric shared why there are only 2-3 real brands of probiotics, and why the rest are not “real.”
It turns out that many probiotic brands don’t contain actual probiotics in them.
Many probiotic skincare brands contain probiotic ingredients, with no actual probiotics in them. Thus, many of them use “false advertising.”
Many probiotic skincare brands are also engaged in class action lawsuits – including Clinique, who is currently being sued because they don’t contain any live probiotics. They are also being sued because their live probiotics contain preservatives that would prevent them from growing.
Only 1 in 500 probiotic strains are “evidence-based”
Eric also shared that only 1 in 500 probiotic strains are based on “evidence-based” probiotics (meaning that they’ve been studied on in clinical trials).
Skinesa is one of the few probiotics that can be taken internally. It also contains a probiotic blend that has been shown to have a 90% difference in helping to achieve clear skin (you can use the code Abby5 to get $5 off your order).
Eric also shares the future of probiotic skincare of what we can expect with probiotic skincare, especially when most aren’t “real”.
