Over the past 10 years, scientists have made enormous progress in the understanding of the role of the microbial flora on health. This progress has led to the emergence of new therapeutic strategies based on the use of probiotics (defined as good bacteria), and more recently of postbiotics, a set of bioactive metabolites produced by probiotics. SILAB got interested in these beneficial effects and applied its expertise in mastering natural and biotechnologies to bioguide the production of a natural postbiotic capable of addressing dry skin issues, using a biomimetic approach.
