The human skin contains over a trillion diverse bacteria. These skin flora help reinforce your skin’s natural barrier against bad bacteria by adjusting the moisturizing components, pH, and immunity of the skin surface. Unfortunately, by constantly using facial cleansers, antibacterial soaps, and astringents, your skin is stripped of this healthy bacteria — consequently damaging your skin’s natural bacterial ecosystem. This, in turn, makes your skin stressed and dry, causing skin issues like breakouts, eczema, rosacea flares and psoriasis.

You might be asking, what can I do to prevent skin issues while still ensuring that my skin is clean of the “bad bacteria?” This is where probiotics become an important part of your every-day skin-care routine!

“Probiotics are microorganisms that are similar to the naturally occurring bacteria in your gut. The more good bacteria we have in our body, the more likely we are to prevent the bad bacteria from taking over and causing issues like gastrointestinal symptoms, IBS and inflammation.”

With the benefits of probiotics in mind, Ichimaru Pharcos, Ltd. developed Fairy Flora K-1, a product made from a special lactic acid bacterium “lactobacillus K-1” found in Japanese rice. In vitro and clinical studies have shown that Fairy Flora K-1 nurtured “beneficial bacteria” and improves sensitive and troublesome skin condition.

Benefits of Skin probiotics derived from Japanese rice include; growth promoting activity of S. epidermidis and CNS, promoting antimicrobial peptides production, promoting keratinization-related proteins (involucrin, filaggrin) production, and moisturizing effect.
