INCI: Propanediol (and) Water (and) Rhamnose (and) Glucose (and) Glucuronic acid
Anti-bacterial adhesion and soother
Definition: Polysaccharide obtained by bacterial fermentation having a branched structure containing rhamnose, glucose and glucuronic acid.
Mode of action: TEFLOSE® is an exclusive MICROBIOTA-FRIENDLY active ingredient. Its unique mode of action, targeting adhesion, biofilms and bacterial virulence, allows it to maintain microbiota equilibrium by preventing hyperproliferation of certain bacterial types responsible for dysbiosis (i.e. imbalances). Its high rhamnose content (60%) also gives TEFLOSE® a high anti-inflammatory and soothing power. Thus, skin problems caused by microbiota imbalance and / or inflammation, such as acne, atopic dermatitis or the development of odors, can be effectively regulated or prevented.
TEFLOSE® at 4% limits the adhesion of undesirable bacteria:
-48% Propionibacterium acnes adhesion
-28% Staphylococcus aureus adhesion
-24% Staphylococcus epidermidis adhesion.
USE LEVEL: 1-4%
