R&D collaboration – new brand St. Biomé
Düsseldorf / Hennigsdorf b. Berlin, 22 April 2021 – In Henkel Beauty Care, BELANO medical AG gained another major partner for the marketing of its microbiotic skincare. In collaboration with Henkel Beauty Care’s incubator, established in 2020, the company developed the new St. Biomé range of skincare products. Use of the microbiotic agent “stimulans”, developed by BELANO medical, means that this new product range provides the skin with everything it needs: natural care and a well-balanced skin microbiome. By relying on this biobased microbiotic ingredient, St. Biomé supports the skin’s natural self-healing and defensive capabilities.
The product range is suitable for all skin types – also as a concomitant therapy in the treatment of skin diseases such as atopic eczema, acne, rosacea, or eczemas. All formulations are free from perfume and from alcohol, parabens, silicones, colouring, or allergens. The products do not contain living cells or animal ingredients, and have no side effects. All articles were developed in Germany and did not involve animal testing.
The following St. Biomé Skin-Care articles are available:
- Intensive care cream
- Acute care cream
- Hand cream
This innovative skincare range is also suitable for use by dermatologists and non-medical practitioners.
Unique patented mechanism of action
All formulations in the new range of skincare products contain “stimulans”, a microbiotic ingredient extracted from natural lactic acid bacteria, which stimulates the healthy bacteria of the skin’s microbiome. The effectiveness of its unique mechanism of action has been demonstrated in clinical studies. Professor Christine Lang, head of research and development at BELANO medical AG, said: “So far, we’re not aware of any other active ingredient which would be similarly able to rapidly restore the natural skin flora and achieve extremely positive effects for the skin and skin health.”
Carefully fine-tuned additional ingredients complement each formulation, ensuring that the overall mechanism of action remains microbiotic. In this way, bioactive ingredients stimulate useful bacteria on the skin. The skin’s microbiome recovers, and its functionalities return to normal.
Application and treatment duration depend on the type of indication, how affected the skin flora is, and on individual environmental factors. Studies have shown that the microbiotic agent “stimulans” is able to improve in skin quality in as little as 14 days.
