Our Science

Here's why healthy skin starts with a blueprint of the past.

More than meets the eye.

Microbial diversity is the key to biological resilience. Your microbiome is the myriad of invisible microorganisms that colonize your skin, your gut, and every surface of your body to ensure optimal functioning. It contributes to your natural defenses, strengthens your immune system, and is a source of vital biomolecules. Everything we do at Symbiome reflects our commitment to selective yet effective skincare, inspired by the thriving microbiome of our ancestors, enabled by rigorous scientific research and formulated to reestablish a healthy foundation.

Through extensive research specific to the evolutionary biology of the skin microbiome, our scientists uncovered that our modern lifestyle has led to approximately 80% loss of bacterial diversity on the skin, diminishing 25% of its metabolic function. This loss depleted our skin of naturally abundant antioxidants, essential vitamins, fatty acids and co-factors, leaving us vulnerable and less resilient to environmental stressors of the modern world.

Postbiomic™ Fermentation

Symbiome's proprietary Postbiomic™ Fermentation helps restore a deficient microbiome and repair the skin's barrier. Developed over decades, the fermentation process uses a unique blend of native microbes that unlock and optimize the delivery of essential nutrients, enzymes, and other compounds. This process ensures optimal absorption of the biomolecules, leading to long-lasting results, while being shelf stable and sustainable.

BioIntact™ Emulsion

Our proprietary cold-emulsion process allows us to create supercharged BioIntact™ creams with as few as three ingredients.

How do we do this?The naturally-occurring bioemulsifiers in our Lactobacillus Ferment (our unique postbiotic) allow the water and oil-based ingredients to form a stable cream when combined. This blend delivers a biologically optimized blend of nutrients, polysaccharides, exosomes, enzymes, and peptides, producing a naturally self-stabilizing, self-preserving emulsion. By eliminating heat from the manufacturing process, we preserve the potency and rich biological integrity of our natural ingredients, optimize the benefits to the skin, and dramatically reduce our carbon footprint.
