PreBio™ Defense from Vantage uses a range of carefully selected naturally derived prebiotic polysaccharides,  which  are  encapsulated  in a  cellulose  matrix.  

When  released  on  the  skin,  they  act  as  a  powerful  food  supplement  and  conditioning  agent  for  the habitation of beneficial microorganisms found on our skin. When delivered to the  skin,  the  beneficial microorganisms can use the prebiotic polysaccharides as a source of nourishment and in turn overwhelm the potentially harmful microorganisms that are unable to metabolise these polysaccharides. This prebiotic effect helps to stimulate the immune  system  to  stay  vigilant  and  alert,  boosting the skin’s barrier and protective functions.

By nourishing our microbial ecosystem and  maintaining  good  skin  function  through added moisturization and immune  vigilance,  PreBio™ Defense is the perfect solution for a holistic approach to healthier looking skin.

PreBio™ Defense is supplied as cream coloured spherical beads containing approximately 12% of active compounds.  The beads are  easy to handle and incorporate into a variery of water-based formulations, including serums, gels, and creams. More detailed formulation guidance is available on request.
