We’re proud to introduce you to an exciting new principal for personal care products: Labio. Based in Korea, Labio specialises in bio-technology and specifically focuses on extremophiles. Through a unique combination of metabolome, fermentology and cell engineering, this innovative company looks at developing efficient, sustainable and more eco-friendly ingredients with enhanced dermatological benefits for a range of personal care applications.
To get an idea of the type of ingredients available from this company, here is an overview of some of Labio’s latest products.
As the name suggests, Scalp-Biome helps to improve the scalp’s microbiome. The scalp is highly exposed to many environments which can cause the growth of harmful bacteria and cause the microbiome to become imbalanced, resulting in inflammation, dandruff and itchiness.
Scalp-Biome helps to limit this bacteria growth, instead promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and rebalancing the microbiome which in turn helps with elasticity and exfoliation and reduces redness, itchiness and dandruff.
SyncTonin²⁴ is a circadian rhythm synchroniser that is based on the Circadian Rhythm theory which suggests that modern day stresses can cause our circadian rhythm to collapse and cause obesity. SyncTonin²⁴, however, utilises both melatonin and serotonin to reduce cellulite and improve our circadian rhythm and skin elasticity. The components used also have anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties too.
Ceramide 3B DPS ECO
Ceramide accounts for up to 50% of the skin’s barrier and is a really important factor in protecting skin. Harmful chemicals, such as polyethylene glycol (PEG), are often used in large quantities for ceramide solubility, but Labio’s Ceramide 3B DPS ECO removes the need for these harmful chemicals and provides a safer, more natural ceramide series. Using microbial fermentation, Ceramide 3B DPS ECO is PEG free, has 1% ceramide solubilisation and is EWG verified at green level.
Fermentoil Body Complex
Part of Labio’s Fermentoil series, Fermentoil Body Complex is a blend of three different fermentoils (olives, sunflower seeds and camellia seeds) and lavender oil, which work together to moisturise and nourish dry skin. The ingredient creates a unique light texture that’s highly refreshing, and absorbs and penetrates faster than regular oils.
