Probiotics to Watch

Wondering what probiotics are best for the skin? We asked our panel of experts to share their picks.

“There are potentially many probiotics that may be effective for use in topical applications. Our approach thus far has been to include probiotics as part of our overall effort in creating beneficial skin treatments. Both Columbia Probiotic Concentrate and Columbia Probiotic Complex contain lactococcus ferment lysate.”—Steven Rosenfeld, president, Columbia Skincare

“The two most common probiotics for skincare, although frequently combined with other microorganisms for the best treatment, are lactobacillus and bifidobacterium.”—Boldijarre Koronczay, president, Éminence Organic Skin Care

“M’lis uses a combination of probiotics: lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacterium longum, and bifidobacterium bifidum. Every body is unique and will respond to different chains of bacteria cultures. One body may respond to lactobacillus acidophilus, another may respond to bifidobacterium longum or bifidobacterium bifidum. Bodies are unique, and their needs change according to lifestyle choices, such as diet, medications, illness, activity levels, and more.”—M’Lisa Jackson, president, M’lis

“Research is being done on lactobacillus with early tests showing it has great impact on skin conditions including acne and psoriasis. Also, Johnson & Johnson is collaborating with scientists from The University of Manchester in England to explore potential applications of probiotic extracts for prevention and treatment of skin, oral, and respiratory conditions.”—Celeste Hilling, cofounder, CEO, and product formulator, Skin Authority
