There's so much more to ingredients than what they do.
Inter Actifs' digital publication invites you to explore the conversational value of beauty ingredients and create richer connections with consumers.



Looking at microbiota in relation to cosmetics means focusing on microorganisms or the action of the metabolites they produce. The latter are a key element in the relationship between micro-organisms and cells, potentially acting as highly effective active ingredients. This is the path that Labio decided to follow when developing its original approach.

A scientific advance

The skin of a baby is not only a paradigm of plump softness, and a highly desirable symbol of youth and freshness. It is also home to a specific microbiota that could be the source of a precious metabolome. In partnership with KRIBB, Labio laboratories in Korea successfully reproduced its sequencing.

An original anti-aging strategy

Based on a comparative mapping of child and adult microbiota, Labio identified shared organisms whose density significantly decreased in adults. What if these were the source of pro-youth metabolites?

BeBebiome, a post-biotic complex

By bringing together this discovery with deep fermenting expertise, Labio developed a post-biotic complex titrated with metabolites displaying anti-inflammatory, firming and anti-wrinkle properties: cis-vaccenic acid, sarcosine, gamma-aminobutyric acid and ectoine.
