Skin & Biotics for Hormonal Balance & Gut Health
SKIN & BIOTICS has been formulated to contribute to hormonal balance and intestinal health through a combination of prebiotics, probiotics, minerals and vitamins. The gut microbiome acts as a quasi hormonal system, which is why improving gut health also leads to better hormonal health.
Specially developed to help relieve symptoms often associated with microbiome imbalances and/or hormonal imbalances. The combination of probiotics and prebiotics with the intestinal microbiome promotes the production of fatty acids and enzymes needed to strengthen the integrity of the gut lining, i.e. make it less porous, to prevent toxins from entering the bloodstream (inflammation) and tissues (skin).
Poor intestinal health and hormonal imbalance can lead to premature ageing of the skin and the onset of acne, as well as mood swings, fatigue, constipation or frequent diarrhoea, bloating, unexplained weight gain or loss, depression, anxiety, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, menstrual pain in women, erectile dysfunction in men or even a puffy face.
What causes hormonal imbalance? Women are much more likely to suffer from hormonal imbalance due to their monthly hormonal fluctuations. However, stress, trauma, illness, poor diet, lack of exercise and other factors all contribute to hormonal imbalances in men and women. What's more, the risk of hormonal imbalance increases with age.
Who is this product for? It is suitable for both teens and adults, men and women, suffering from minor disorders linked to intestinal problems and/or hormonal imbalance due to stress, poor diet or medication. It is also recommended for women experiencing hormonal fluctuations and the associated physical and emotional symptoms, as well as for those seeking to improve their intestinal health and the quality of their skin.
For which skin types? SKIN & BIOTICS is suitable for acne-prone skin, dry skin with fine lines, dull complexions and skin with imperfections. It can also help with atopic dermatitis, rosacea and inflammation linked to permeable gut.
PECTIN: Well known fibre for the microbiome and for its ability to bind to heavy metals (a detoxifier).
BETA GLUCAN: Normally found in oats, but the beta glucan in Skin & Biotics is of a yeast origin, extrated from the Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
PROBIOTICS: 4 strains of Lactobacillus.
Together the probiotics and the prebiotics (pectin & beta glucan) work together with the microbiome to produce fatty acids and enzymes needed to maintain a healthy gut.

Most frequent questions
What is the link between hormones and the gut microbiome?
We know the gut microbiome regulates the immune system, the brain, the nervous system, the digestion, the skin and almost every part of our body. But the latest science also links the regulation of hormones to the microbiome. For example, oestrogens and thyroids are regulated via enzymes produced by a healthy microbiome.
How does hormonal imbalance affect the skin?
Hormonal imbalance can affect the natural function of the skin barrier, making it more vulnerable to external aggressions. For example, a stress-induced cortisol imbalance can weaken this protective barrier. A drop in oestrogen levels can lead to thinning of the skin, wrinkles, dryness and slower healing. This decrease can also lead to an increase in androgen levels, which can stimulate the production of sebum on the skin, increase pore size and make the skin prone to acne.
What's the best time to take these capsules
The capsules should be taken in an empty stomach with plenty of water. Wait 30-40 minutes before drinking coffee or tea.
Are the capsules only for adult women?
They are formulated for anyone above the age of 12 who has signs of hormonal imbalance as well for those who wish to improve their gut health. They can be taken by teens as well as adult men.
Is the supplement vegan-friendly?
Yes. All ingredients are vegan and the outer capsule is vegetable cellulose.
Free from GMO, gluten, soy, dairy, bulking agents.
They contain probiotics, do they have to be refrigerated?
The capsules don't need to be refrigerated. However, if you live in an area with high temperature (above 25 degrees C), it is preferable to keep them in the fridge.
Can Skin & Biotics be taken in combination with Skin & Stress?
