The Skincare Range Designed To Boost Your Skin’s Microbiome

The gut microbiome gets plenty of airtime, but did you know there are other microbiomes in your body? One of them is the skin microbiome, which plays a crucial role in protecting your complexion. To help it do its thing, The Nue Co.’s BARRIER CULTURE collection – comprising a science-backed cleanser and moisturiser – has been designed to repopulate your skin microbiome, repair your skin barrier and nourish for more balanced, happier skin. Here’s what you need to know…

CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NUE CO.

It’s Not All About Your Gut...

According to recent studies, of the trillions of bacteria that make up your body’s various microbiomes, around 26% are in your gut while 21% are on your skin. Playing a crucial role when it comes to skin health, the millions of bacteria that live on the surface of your skin are responsible for keeping everything in balance, just like your gut. When your microbiome is happy, your skin looks and feels healthy. However, throw in an overly complicated skincare routine, pollution, stress and toxins, and you’ll create a less-than-ideal environment where there’s more harmful than helpful bacteria, leading to blemishes, redness, dryness and itching. Sound familiar? Studies show over 90% of skin conditions can be traced back to an impaired skin barrier, so if you’re struggling with your skin, chances are your barrier could do with a little TLC. Putting a new spin on skincare, The Nue Co’s BARRIER CULTURE collection is the topical supplement you didn’t know you needed.

It All Starts With A Cleanser...

Forget a complicated ten-step skincare routine. The BARRIER CULTURE collection is small but very mighty. Start your routine with the cleanser. Concentrated with prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics, it’ll feed the good bacteria on your skin and treat the skin itself, actively calming and conditioning as you go.Using sulphate-free, soap-free, gentle and biodegradable cleansing agents derived from apples to clean the skin without stripping, it’s a velvety gel that transforms into a light, milky foam for a deep cleanse suitable for all skin types. Skin is left feeling clean, comfortable and soft. Plus, as a low pH cleanser that matches the slightly acidic pH of healthy skin, it won’t push the skin into an alkaline state, which can cause breakouts, sensitivity and irritation. 

Follow Up With The Moisturiser...

Going above and beyond your average pot of face cream, The Nue Co’s BARRIER CULTURE Moisturiser brims with naturally sourced peptides, squalene, niacinamide and ceramides to improve the skin’s immune function, reduce dark marks and boost collagen and elastin production – all of which support the long-term health of your complexion and rebuild the skin barrier.  If you’re prone to redness or sensitivity, the formula is one to try thanks to calendula and chamomile extracts, which instantly soothe and reduce inflammation. An innovative gel-to-cream formula that absorbs quickly into the skin, it’s ideal for all skin types. Use one pump morning and evening post-cleansing for the best results. 

It’ll Benefit The Planet Too...

By offering a streamlined approach to skincare, the BARRIER CULTURE range will protect your skin and the environment. Overly complex beauty routines are not only destroying your skin barrier but driving over 95bn units of packaging to landfills every year. Both formulas are 100% vegan and cruelty free, as well as being free from fragrance and alcohol.

It Really Works...

The patented technology in the BARRIER CULTURE Cleanser is clinically proven to reduce pollution-induced skin barrier damage by 45% in just three days (yes, really) and improve moisture levels by nearly 7% in 42 days. After six weeks of using the cleanser and moisturiser together, 82% of testers said their skin texture and tone was improved; 82% reported improved skin hydration; and 70% said their skin was less reactive and sensitive. It all comes down to the specific probiotics used in the range: developed in a world-leading research centre, the technology means the bacteria is recognised by your skin as ‘live’, instantly restoring the skin’s natural defences. In short, this is skincare that works.
