Science

Probiotics for skincare, how it works

Imbalances

Imbalances in our skin’s microbiome can cause harmful bacterial overgrowth inside our pores just like imbalances in our gut microbiome lead to inflammation.

Skin microbiome

Topically applying probiotics can help soothe flare-ups caused by imbalances in our skin microbiome and restore the natural bacterial equilibrium, allowing it to "reset."

Research

Human skin culture studies have shown that unique probiotic complexes combine to boost the skin’s natural immunity, enhancing repair for powerful results from within.

Culture

Clean beauty that unifies, not discriminates.

We recognize the ugly side of the beauty industry which tries to apply beauty standards that make you feel not enough.
Our approach is the opposite, probiotic-based skincare does not discriminate against age, skin-type, gender or race.
In our increasingly digitized world, we experience many effects of culture and social pressures on our skin.
Unrealistic expectations
If we focus more on the idea that internal health = beauty, we have the power to redefine beauty standards fueled by division and exclusion.
Reconceptualizing beauty
We believe clean beauty is about aligning our principles and products; when we are unified and balanced, we can focus on what really matters.
Integration and harmony

Balance

Modern societies & toxic enemies: How to defend your skin.

About BalanceInternal + external composition
In our modern society, we are exposed to an infinite number of chemical agents including toxins and pollutants that stick to our skin while we travel in urban spaces. Not only do these pollutants affect our health, but sun UV exposure, seasonal changes, weather and climate all inform the production of sebum oil and bacteria populations on our skin’s surface. Fortunately, maintaining a balance of good bacteria in our skin’s microbiome can help to prevent and protect us against the negative effects of various factors like these. Application of probiotic formulations to the skin’s surface can act as a protective barrier against the forces of nature and urban life.
Natural, good and bad bacteria all inhabit our inner ecosystems.

History

Inspired by age-old Japanese tradition.

About HistoryTraditional Japanese diet
The first use of probiotics in the history of mankind dates back to 2000 BC. Fermented products have been used to treat many diseases for a number of reasons, including their nutritional value and ability to ward off pathogens. Our formulations draw inspiration from ancient Japanese fermentation practices, and contain Lactic acid bacterial derivations obtained from microorganisms living in the Shirakami Lake of Japan. At intō, we believe in harmoniously combining traditional ingredients with science to formulate high quality products proven to brighten, hydrate, and increase elasticity in your skin.
We have fed our bodies helpful bacteria for centuries.

Principle05 / 05

Our body absorbs and integrates everything we put onto it, whether it is beneficial or not.
While beauty products have the intent of improving one’s appearance, we must consider that there are many factors that influence our skin's beauty from the inside out. By stripping away the good bacteria from the skin, traditional skincare has interrupted the skin's natural biological state and worked against it.
At intō, we prioritize this knowledge in the formulation of our products. We understand that products intended for external use can also have positive effects on our total health and wellness.
Awareness of how this moment affects the next is key to our philosophy. This is why we strive to create products that have long-term benefits rather than temporary cosmetic ones.
