Your skin microbiome is a group of living organisms that make up your skin’s foundation. We’re using our expert understanding of the microbiome to revolutionize how we develop products to help improve the skin’s health and appearance.

About 20 years ago, talking about germs in general (let alone good germs) was something people tried hard to avoid. Germs existed and it was our job as humans to wipe them out as best we could. Yet, that’s when our partners at Cosmetic Research Laboratories began: investigating, researching, creating…getting to know the complex world of germs in-depth.

Today, there is immense interest in how the human microbiome interacts with and affects our health and wellness, as well as the related fields of prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics. It seems there is something new we are discovering every day, shedding more light on this fascinating, invisible world of human microbes.

At the moment, we know much more about how prebiotics work in our gut than how they work on our skin. But we have discovered that using prebiotics topically (putting prebiotics directly on our skin) works very effectively for all types of concerns, from anti-aging, acne, redness, dryness, rosacea and dull skin. As a result, we have been focusing our research on this new perspective of using prebiotics in the treatment of many skin conditions.

So, unlike many cosmetic ingredients that kill good microbes along with the bad and disrupt the natural skin barrier, these next-generation personal care formulas carefully nurture friendly bacteria, helping them outcompete the harmful ones. This approach looks like the best “all round” solution in the treatment of many skin diseases such as acne which involve microbes and that is why we’re applying our expert understanding of the microbiome to revolutionize how we develop all Tomorrow’s Leaf ® products to help improve the skin’s health and appearance.

Prebiotic Activ Technology ®

Patent granted July 25, 2019: number 15/331,679
This groundbreaking discovery was made after testing nearly 300 different botanicals and the synergy between them. Designed for the treatment of mild to moderate acne and accelerated aging, this technology utilizes a synergized patented extract of organic blackcurrants and European wild-crafted pine. Both are processed under a specific patented method. Unlike benzoyl peroxide that kills good microbes along with the bad and disrupts the natural barrier, our Prebiotic Activ Technology carefully nurtures friendly bacteria, helping them to outcompete the harmful ones to naturally treat acne concerns and other skin issues and diseases including dermatitis.
