ProBiocin V™ is a vegan, COSMOS compliant, antimicrobial solution for personal care based on peptide technology to promote a healthy and balanced skin and scalp.
Lactobacillus acidophilus, containing powerful probiotic attributes, produces novel postbiotic antimicrobial peptides known as bacteriocins, capable of providing broad spectrum antimicrobial protection. This in turn reduces the number of pathogens and promotes a healthy skin and scalp.
The ability of ProBiocin V™ to inhibit and reduce the growth of a variety of bacteria and fungi was determined using a Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) test and a time kill test. It was also evaluated at 4% in Challenge Test on a shampoo and a cream. The results clearly demonstrate that ProBiocin V™ is effective at preventing microbiological spoilage and offers a viable alternative to traditional synthetic preservatives. In addition to its antimicrobial properties, ProBiocin V™ was shown by in-vivo methods to have a moisturising and anti-reddening effect on the scalp and face.
