THE MICROBIOTIC COLLECTION

20th Sep 2022

Dr. Barbara Sturm’s latest innovation, the MICROBIOTIC COLLECTION, is an exciting, brand-new area of skincare ingredient science which focuses specifically on bringing a healthier balance to young and blemish-prone skin. Inspired by the conversations Dr. Sturm had with students and teenagers that attended her Skin School educational series during the height of the pandemic - during which many of them stressed how hormonal and lifestyle changes had a disruptive effect on their skin. The collection includes four comprehensive products that work together to balance three aspects of the skin’s ecosystem: the microbiome, inflammatory and repair responses, and protection against photodamage and is vegan, cruelty-free and fragrance-free. Daily use helps restore and strengthen young skin for a healthy, optimally balanced complexion with a clear and fresh appearance. Read on to discover more.

What are the key ingredients?

The formulations include pre- and probiotics which help create a healthy diversity of bacteria in the microbiota and Centella Asiatica and Cockspur Thorn, which help skin contend with the imbalances brought on by stress, inflammation, and hormones. Maclura Leaf Extract has gentle detoxifying properties to help combat impurities and Butterfly Bush and Moringa Seed Extract help stabilize free radicals, counteracting the irritation which can be caused by over exposure to digital screens. Both ingredients also help strengthen the skin barrier to prevent pollutants from being absorbed.

What age can I start using the products?  

Depending on when puberty starts but generally around the ages of 12-14, though you can start using the products sooner if you wish.

What makes the packaging unique?  

With the MICROBIOTIC COLLECTION Dr. Sturm has chosen to eliminate external packaging to reduce paper waste - each product features a QR code to scan for details about ingredients and application to support a more environmentally-friendly approach while still giving you all the information you may need. And the MICROBIOTIC KIT, which includes all four products, comes in a recycled, craft paper bag.
