Mode of action: BIOECOLIA® is a recognized prebiotic dedicated to the preservation of the protective Ecosystem (microbiota) of the skin, mucous membranes and scalp:
– it stimulates, in a bioselective way, the development of the beneficial flora to the detriment of pathogenic undesirable flora
– it stimulates the production of anti-microbial peptides, key immunological markers, essential for maintaining microbial balance.

BIOECOLIA® at 0.75% stimulates β-defensins 3 by +153% after 7 days

At the phyla taxonomic level, BIOECOLIA® at 3% increases the proportion of Actinobacteria and Firmicutes on the skin respectively by 21% and 36% after 15 days of application. At the genus taxonomic level, BIOECOLIA® at 3% increases the population of Staphylococcus epidermidis on the skin by 146% after 15 days of application.
