Cosmetics that contain probiotic ingredients are rapidly gaining popularity around the world because consumers associate these materials with health, wellness and sustainability. BASF’s ingredient Phytofirm Biotic enables cosmetics manufacturers to create probiotic anti-ageing skin products. In vitro and in vivo testing has demonstrated that this innovative probiotic rejuvenates the youthful appearance of the skin from head to toe by helping to increase the production of collagen I, collagen V and elastin. It is obtained by fermenting soybean extract from non-GMO, traceable European soybeans using the Lactobacillus plantarum strain. Phytofirm Biotic offers manufacturers worldwide an effective alternative to soy protein hydrolysate when making probiotic skin care products.
