New Launch! EQUIBIOME™: Help achieve harmony between the skin and its microbiome
May 30, 2018
The skin microbiome is a complex ecosystem of symbiotic relationships - between the microorganisms among themselves and the between microbiota and the skin. In order to exist in perfect harmony, they must respect a very sensitive equilibrium. SEPPIC has created EQUIBIOME™ to help the skin achieve this equilibrium.
Skins over-exposed to microbiota react by inflammation, causing hypersensitivity. They produce peptides to kill these microorganisms.
Skin conditions often lead people to cleanse the skin, killing too much of the microbiota. This causes sensitive skin. Since the development of personal cleansing, skin conditions have actually increased! Sensitive skin becomes inflamed, producing more defenses against microorganisms, perpetuating the cycle.
Equibiome™ is extracted from the roots of the Great burdock. Grown in innovative and natural aeroponic culture, EQUIBIOME™ offers a unique composition with higher content of rare root metabolites than classical root extracts.
Equibiome™ comes from the Great Burdock, a plant with large, rhubarb-like leaves, sustainably sourced in France.
The plant was traditionally used in chinese medicine to treat skin disorders like dry skin, eczema, acne, and psoriasis. The roots are specifically known to work on inflammation and microbiota.
Equibiome™ prevents S. aureus biofilm formation, and restores the skin barrier function.
+58% moisturization after 1 week on very dry skin (by corneometry, at 1% in a cream).
-20% stinging sensation after chemical stress -60% redness after mechanical stress
