Unlocking the skin microbiome code

Gova is launching a novel prebiotic active: preBiulin FOS. It is the first ingredient in its kind that offers ex vivo claim support. The main skin function is to build a protective barrier against the environment. The epidermis forms a shield that keeps out undesirable chemicals and bacteria.

Recent scientific research discovered that our barrier on its turn is protected by a far more impressive shield: a layer of microorganisms covering the epidermis. This microbiotic film forms an impenetrable labyrinth for foreign/harmful microorganisms.

Skin imperfections and discomfort are actually caused by a disturbance of this microflora. The delicate balance of our skin microbiota can be disturbed by pollution, excessive UV, chemicals, aggressive cosmetics. When this barrier weakens, our skin becomes sensitive, dry, infected, itchy and wrinkled: the skin ages. 

A new approach to slow down skin ageing and to keep the skin healthy is to energise and to protect this skin microbiota barrier. preBiulin FOS is a scientifically proven prebiotic that makes our skin microbiota and our skin more resistant. A prebiotic is a selective food supplement for our skin microbiota, while harmful microorganisms cannot metabolise the prebiotic. Hence the natural skin flora is reinforced and balanced. Gova is specialised in functional and active sugars.
