For most people, when they hear “probiotics”, they think of yogurt. And that’s true, probiotics are typically found in yogurt and other fermented dairy products. But now, probiotics are showing up in skin care, and for good reason. Essential Formulas Incorporated, a family owned and operated company that opened in 2000, has come out with a new product called Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku beauty bar, and this little guy is revolutionizing skin care.
What sets this bar apart from other bars is its use of probiotics. Dr. Ohhira’s bar contains E. faecalis TH10 lactic acid bacteria, or LAB for short. Your skin is exposed to environmental and cosmetic toxins on a daily basis which can increase the number of harmful bacteria on your skin. LAB helps maintain the natural pH of your skin, which allows good bacteria to thrive, bad bacteria to suffer and die, and keeps inflammation, irritation, and redness away.
But while Dr. Ohhira’s bar is famous for what it contains, it is almost equally famous for what it doesn’t contain. This beauty bar contains absolutely no fragrances, stabilizers, preservatives, or chemicals. What does that mean for you? It means you get a gentle soap that is effective and safe for all skin types.
And, not only is the bar perfect for all skin types, it’s perfect for all skin ages. Yep, feel safe to use it on your baby, yourself, and your grandma. (Well, don’t actually lather Granny up, but give her a bar as a gift.) Plus, the Probiotic Kampuku beauty bar is safe to use on your face and body. One safe, natural, gentle product for your face and body, which saves you time in the store and in the shower.
As if it couldn’t get any better, Dr. Ohhira’s beauty bar contains no animal products and is never tested on animals. So it’s not only perfect for you, your baby, and Granny, it’s also perfect for your vegan cousin living in California.
While you can’t buy Essentials Formulas Incorporated products on their website, you can buy them in a variety of locations around the Las Vegas Valley, including all locations of Whole Foods and The Vitamin Shoppe. Get shopping and scrub your way to naturally healthier, more balanced skin.
