Prebiotics for skin health

Gut-skin axis

 

Characterization of the active compounds

Oliglow® is a food-based ingredient concentrated to 70% galactooligosaccharides (GOS), including 9% 4’-galactosyllactose (GL), a specific prebiotic originally isolated from mother’s milk. These soluble short-chain fibers are non-digestible and ferment in the intestine, where they contribute to a regulation of the local microflora for a healthier microbiome.

ACTIVE COMPOUNDS

Galactooligosaccharides
GOS       > 70%
Galactosyllactose
4’-GL   > 9%

Formulation

Recommended daily dosage: 2000 mg

Gut-skin axis: it all starts from microbiome

Oliglow® has demonstrated its benefits in rebalancing the ratio of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria of the gut microflora, leading to lower inflammation and oxidative stress, both of which are damaging to skin health.

Skin barrier function - hydration

Oliglow® improves the capacity of the skin to retain water, significantly  improving the level of hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.

Skin sensitivity to photo-aging

The decrease in erythema demonstrates a lower level of skin irritation, while a significant reduction of the melanin index demonstrates a lower sensitivity to sun damage. 

Effect on wrinkles

Total wrinkle area

Oliglow® significantly contributes to the reduction of wrinkles measured in the crow’s feet area.
