LactoSpore®, the proprietary Bacillus coagulans strain MTCC 5856 manufactured by Sabinsa Corporation for over 20 years, is for the first time included in cosmeceutical products with the launch of Massey Medicinals Candida Freedom® Soap and Candida Freedom® Bath Salts.
While use of probiotics orally for improving gut health and microflora is well known, the use of probiotics on skin is a relatively new area of interest.
Candida Freedom Soap is an all-natural handcrafted soap and provides B. coagulans topically for supporting healthy skin. This eco-friendly soap contains no synthetic fragrances, color or preservatives and is 100% biodegradable. LactoSpore® provides probiotic support to skin in addition to the oils of tea tree, lemon and lemongrass which additionally provide antifungal cleanser benefits. Candida Freedom Bath Salt formula is free of fragrances, dyes and essential oils for those with sensitive skin or low immunity.
"We're excited by this new venture for LactoSpore," said Sabinsa's Marketing Director Shaheen Majeed. "Microbes play an important role for our skin and such pathogenic bacteria in skin conditions such as Acne, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis is well known. Hence, healthy microflora on skin can help create a good balance necessary for healthy skin."
"Candida Freedom Soap is a multifunctional probiotic soap which provides the benefits of lactic acid-producing bacteria Bacillus coagulans MTCC 5856 on skin," said Bryan Massey ND, founder of Massey Medicinals. "The skin is not only a barrier between the human body and environment but also contains an ecosystem on the surface of a wide variety of microbes that must be in balance. Candida Freedom Soap has skin-friendly pH, has a soothing effect on skin and helps in tissue repair."
