Probiotic Lysates

Probiotic Lysates: The Next Frontier in Skincare

You’ve probably heard about the importance of maintaining your diverse gut microbiome, but did you know that your skin microbiome is just as important when it comes to maintaining clear and radiant skin? You may not want to dwell on this fact, but your skin is covered by a diverse community of microorganisms. This complex ecosystem, which includes bacteria and fungi, among other things, coexists in a delicate balance that keeps toxins out of your pores, prevents infections, and maintains the overall health of your skin. To help sustain that delicate balance, scientists began to toy with the idea of using probiotics in skincare, much in the same way that you might take an oral probiotic to maintain your gut health. This is where probiotic lysates come into the picture.  

The Science Behind Probiotic Lysates for Skin

So, what exactly are probiotic lysates? Probiotic lysates are not live bacteria, like what you find in oral probiotic supplements, but rather beneficial materials that have been extracted by breaking up probiotic cells. The process through which the cells are broken up is called “lysis,” thus the term probiotic lysates. Probiotic lysates, while much hardier than live bacteria, still require careful formulation and appropriate packaging to protect them from light and air. 

This is a good reason to look to science-backed brands, like Solvasa Beauty, when purchasing skincare products containing probiotic lysates. From the very beginning, we’ve offered our community of Solvasa Pros holistic, science-backed beauty and wellness products. But we don’t stop there. We also provide robust content and educational programs to cultivate the emerging practice of integrative beauty.

Benefits of Using Probiotic Lysates in Skincare

Probiotic lysates enhance your skin’s natural defense mechanisms by balancing the good-to-bad ratio of bacteria on the skin. This helps to slow down pathogen growth and stimulate cell growth, which can accelerate wound healing, for example. This is especially important when factors such as pollution, stress, or harsh skincare products threaten to disrupt the delicate balance of your skin’s microbiome. Additionally, probiotic lysates have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness, irritation, and acne.

Popular Probiotic Lysate Ingredients

Interestingly, there is more than one kind of probiotic lysate used in skincare formulations. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of two popular variations - lactobacillus ferment lysate and saccharomyces lysate extract, both of which are found in the Solvasa Golden Harmony

The Benefits of Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate in Skincare Products

Lactobacillus ferment lysate is produced by probiotics during fermentation. It helps keep your skin’s natural barrier strong. But it is also a key ingredient for addressing wounds or blemishes. That’s because lactobacillus ferment lysate promotes skin cell growth, while at the same time slowing down the growth of harmful bacteria. This is a big plus if you have acne-prone skin. In practical terms, it means your skin will heal faster and be less prone to the effects of harmful bacterias.

The Benefits of Saccharomyces Lysate Extract in Skincare Products

Saccharomyces lysate extract is produced by probiotics during yeast fermentation. It’s ideal for soothing and hydrating the skin. It contains beneficial properties including amino acids, a variety of vitamins and minerals depending on the method of fermentation used, and elements like carbon and nitrogen, which all contribute to a radiant complexion. These soothing properties also help to promote a healthy skin barrier and overall microbiome.

How to Incorporate Probiotic Lysates into Your Beauty Regimen

Incorporating probiotic lysates into your daily routine is easy with the Golden Harmony Cleansing Mask. This two-minute kaolin clay-based cleansing treatment is infused with  turmeric, chaga mushroom, and ashwagandha. It draws out impurities and helps remove both dead skin cells and makeup, while at the same time employing probiotic lysates to enhance your skin’s microbiome. The result is fresher, smoother, clearer skin. You can use it to brighten and tighten your skin in the morning, or to deep clean at day’s end. As you allow the mask two minutes to dry, you can practice some mindful breathing to recenter yourself.  

Another option for a refreshing and mindful routine is to use the Golden Harmony Cleansing Mask each morning and Tranquil Cleansing Butter as your bedtime cleanser to remove the remains of each day, leaving skin clean and hydrated. This skincare routine, which includes the benefits of probiotic lysates, is known as the Mindful Double Cleanse.


Probiotic lysates offer some fascinating benefits in the world of skincare. From their anti-inflammatory properties to their ability to promote a healthy skin microbiome, they have something to offer for all skin types.
