Acidophilus Probiotic Facial Cream
Epicuren Discovery® has teamed with Natren®, Inc., the world-renowned researcher of cultured probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus, to create a mildly exfoliating skin cream that addresses problematic and inflammatory skin conditions.
When the skin's bacteria levels are not in proper balance, it becomes more susceptible to harmful bacteria, pollutants, free radicals and allergens. Probiotics are live microorganisms that help maintain this microbial balance, most likely through competitive inhibition (the beneficial probiotic bacteria displace the harmful ones). The result is a reduction of pathogens and toxin-producing bacteria. Epicuren®’s Acidophilus Probiotic Facial Cream is enriched with Lactobacillus acidophilus to help restore a balance of healthy flora levels on the skin. It also contains triglyceride-rich ingredients and calming extracts to maintain that balance. This mildly exfoliating moisturizer gently assists the skin to operate at its peak performance.
Recommended for | Combination, oily and sensitive skin types. This product is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.

Lactobacillus Ferment | Lactobacillus is a type of bacteria that naturally exists within the body. The bacteria helps maintain normal bacterial flora by competing with harmful, infection causing bacteria. Lactobacillus is also currently being studied for treatment of inflammation.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract | Improves skin hydration and helps increase the rate of healing. Aloe vera contains calming properties and helps repair damaged epidermal cells.
Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract | Provides moisture binding, moisture regulating and anti-inflammatory elements for the skin. This extract is effective in soothing and tightening, and it contains amino acids and organic acids that are claimed to strengthen the skin’s acid mantle.
