Microbioskin™ — Uncompromisingly elevated for strengthening, balancing and protecting the skin barrier creating next level results. Each carefully crafted formulation delivers a nutrient boost to your skin via potent natural, organic and high quality bio-tech made ingredients.
The Microbioskin™ collection is based around super-powerful, skin barrier-repairing organic products respecting your skin's s pH level. We use probiotics, prebiotics, and the best microbiome-friendly ingredients.
When the pH is optimised, the skin can better defend itself against pathogenic microorganisms. As your skin's microbiome is boosted, the skin barrier's health is fortified and restored. Even our carefully selected preservative systems are clinically proven to improve the skin barrier function, reduce TEWL and respect the microbiome.
All Microbioskin™ products contain a proprietary blend of organic botanical oils and extracts exclusive to Manasi 7, formulated to maintain the skin barrier and acid mantle’s natural pH.
Instead of multiple steps and products, we advocate a streamlined skincare routine with a less-is-more approach. Multi-purpose products save time, money, and energy. Microbioskin™ is about no-compromise beauty products that cuts through the industry claims and condenses your skin care routine.
The Skin Microbiome
Your skin consists of several layers, all of which are essential in protecting your body. The epidermis is the thinner top layer of the skin barrier and the outermost layer of the epidermis consists of dead skin cells made up of sturdy skin cells called corneocytes that are held together by lipids. The corneocytes contain keratin and natural moisturizers, while the lipid layer contains choles-terol, fatty acids, and ceramides.
The skin barrier is vital for your body’s function and needs to be protected — without the barrier, you would become extremely dehydrated. For the Microbioskin™ collection, we use probiotics, prebiotics, and the best microbiome-friendly ingredients. Research shows that these ingredients offer excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Our mindset is to see our skin as a living, breathing ecosystem that needs support to thrive.
Upcycled and zero waste
As a natural and organic brand, we love working with plants and their extracts. In line with our sustainability goals, we collect discarded ingredients from organic food and beverage waste. They need to be in good, fresh condition so they can then be transformed through bio-fermentation into active ingredients. By reusing the valuable natural resources in our soils as much as possible, we can help reduce our environmental impact by supporting circular production that is good for both our skin and the planet. Upcycling reduces environmental pollution and greenhouse emissions.
Bio-tech and Fermented
Fermentation creates molecules that can enhance the production of ceramides, the lipids that form the skin's barrier and help it to retain moisture. We use sustainably sourced and 100% naturally derived ingredients that, together with bacteria and yeast, produce an active fermented ingredient, which is biologically identical to those that live in nature and breaks down molecules into smaller compounds to be better absorbed by the skin.
Substances need a molecular weight of under 500 Daltons to penetrate the skin barrier, and fermentation enables this. This process is sometimes referred to as making ingredients "bio-compatible" or "bio-available," meaning they can be absorbed deepe and the ingredients can work more efficiently.
Fermented skincare benefits all skin types because it mimics the skin's cell function, working in harmony with the skin without interrupting its natural processes.
Cleansing and exfoliating — if done too often or using harsh products can strip the skin’s protective layer hence weakening the skin’s microbiome, resulting it in becoming susceptible to eczema.
Your skin has amounts of niacinamide, collagen, retinol, vitamins, and minerals naturally. Overuse of cleansing products and other harsh ingredients, especially surfactants, exfoliants, retinoids, alcohol, or topical vitamin C, will strip away these naturally occurring ingredients since they dissolve your dead skin cells. The latter have an important function; they seal in the skin’s natural moisture. If you over-cleanse and exfoliate it means you will need to add all back through your skincare products.
We encourage you to avoid cleaning your skin in the morning to keep the natural layer of protection intact. If you wear makeup during the day, you can easily remove it with our gentle microbiome-friendly Botanical Face oil, Armonia or Botanical Cleanser, Caulis, leaving your skin microbiome intact.
