Silab's Lactobiotyl: a postbiotic active ingredient for a preserved microbiota

Lactobiotyl de Silab : un actif postbiotique pour un microbiote préservé

Silab, an expert in skin biology and in the mastering of nature and biotechnologies, presents its new active ingredient: Lactobiotyl, a postbiotic concentrate for a preserved microbiota and a revived skin radiance. Of natural origin, it can restore hydration and luminosity to dry skin, improve the integrity and renewal of the epidermal barrier while preserving the equilibrium of the cutaneous microbiota.

For the development of its new care product for dry skin, Silab Research drew inspiration from the adaptation properties of a plant probiotic (Lactobacillus arizonensis) to a desert climate. This living microorganism colonizes jojoba, a shrub known for its adaptation to extremely dry conditions, as those of the Arizona desert. In order to ensure its survival, this good bacterial species (= probiotic) bioconverts molecules of its host into bioactive metabolites, more commonly called postbiotics.
Based on their recognized expertise in mastering natural, the microbiota and biotechnologies, Silab teams have reproduced in industrial bioreactors the natural environment of this bacterial species specific to desert climates by growing it in association with its host, jojoba. This targeted bioguiding technology has directly resulted in the production of bioactive molecules that constitute Lactobiotyl®.
Advanced analytical techniques have enabled these bioactive molecules to be identified. They are cyclic polyols, osmoprotecting molecules known to regulate the water status of the plant in conditions of drought. In the skin, these molecules directly target dry skin, thereby making Lactobiotyl® the ideal care product to treat dry skin.
