First prize for innovation for new honey-based active

Black BeeOme from Mibelle Biochemistry is a new active that results from the fermentation of honey from the rare dark bee Apis mellifera mellifera with the bacteria Zymomonas mobilis and has been designed to restore the skin microflora after stress to ensure a healthy and pure skin. It won the 1st Prize in the category “Most innovative raw material naturals/actives” at BSB Awards in April 2019.

Having a well-balanced cutaneous microflora is important for a healthy and beautiful skin, protecting its balance and its recovery represents a winning strategy for skin care products. The approach of Black BeeOme was to produce a fermented ingredient using Zymomonas mobilis, a special microorganism that specifically digests basic sugars and leaves polysaccharides intact. As a result, the carbon source for unwanted bacterial growth on the skin is removed. On the other hand, the ferment contains prebiotic factors that help to control the growth of microorganisms on the skin.

In vitro and clinical studies have shown that Black BeeOme promotes a faster skin flora recovery after washing as well as skin barrier recovery. In addition, the fermented black bee honey diminished the sebum production and improved the uniformity of oily and uneven face skin. When applied on a sheet mask, Black BeeOme showed a clear improvement of impure skin of volunteers living in urban, polluted areas after only 15 minutes of a single application.
