preBIULIN AGA (INCI: Inulin) is a natural prebiotic proven to help rebalance the skin’s microbiota. It is a combination of two inulin types differing in molecular chain length and branching. The inulin is extracted from chicory and agave and can only be metabolized by organisms carrying the inulinase enzyme. Due to this, inulin acts as a prebiotic and only feeds select protective organisms that in turn provide food for others, thus supporting the microbiota, and helping to create a protective layer on the skin. This layer serves multiple functions such as shielding the skin from foreign substances as well as helping to trap moisture within the skin.
preBIULIN AGA provides skin hydration that outperforms hyaluronic acid as demonstrated in short- and long-term tests. Creams formulated with 0.1% of high MW hyaluronic acid (1.6 MDa) and 1.5% preBIULIN AGA were tested up to 28 days, showing consistently higher hydration levels with preBIULIN AGA.
Skin hydration in a function of time after 1 application of cream containing 0.1% HA and 1.5% preBIULIN AGA, expressed as a percentage improvement verses initial value. Measuring using Corneometer CM285.
Skin hydration after 28 days of twice daily application of cream containing 0.1% HA and 1.5% preBIULIN AGA, expressed as a percentage improvement verses initial value. Measured using a Corneometer CM285.
