Active supports advantageous biofilms

Biofilms are complex habitats of microorganisms on human skin. Microbes can hide inside the protective matrix of biofilms, where they have a reduced vulnerability to antimicrobial agents.

This fact challenges the cosmetic industry to identify a selective biofilm balancer, which specifically weakens biofilms of troublemaking bacteria, and supports biofilms of advantageous microbes.

With Cranberry organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB, Lipoid Kosmetik, a manufacturer of botanical extracts, actives and natural phospholipid products for the cosmetic and personal care industry, presents a novel cosmetic tool that targets cutaneous biofilms. Cranberry organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB has anti-adhesive and anti-biofilm forming activity, but is non-biocidal. It selectively represses biofilm formation of disadvantageous microorganisms, while promoting beneficial microorganisms in biofilms. Thereby, Cranberry organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB controls biofilms naturally.

Cranberry organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB can be used as stand-alone active ingredient to control cutaneous biofilms, or complementary to antimicrobial agents.
