Tula Skin Care Uses Topical Probiotics

July 14, 2014

New line created by TV’s Dr. Raj.

Tula is a new topical skin care line using a probiotic technology. The Sanskrit word for balance, Tula products are designed to bring a sense of balance to every woman's daily skin care routine, according to co-founder Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa—a.k.a. TV personality Dr. Raj.

The products are infused with a probiotic complex, which features rice proteins, vitamins A, C, and E, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as white tea and blueberry extracts.

The Tula line includes a purifying cleanser, an illuminating face serum, a revitalizing eye cream, and a day-and-night hydrating cream.

"I wanted to find effective ingredients to keep our skin gorgeous, and I created the TULA skincare line using various skin nourishing ingredients and Probiotic Technology. Probiotics—organisms (bacteria or yeast) naturally found in humans—have always fascinated me," said Dr. Raj.

According to its makers, a growing body of research, including the Journal of Applied Microbiology, the British Journal of Nutrition and the British Journal of Dermatology, showed that probiotics can have other health-promoting effects beyond digestive tract well-being, including skin health benefits. The topical use of probiotics has been showed to stimulate skin's protective mechanism, improve the balance of the "good" bacteria in skin, guard against UV-induced damage and improve skin's elasticity and collagen production, noted the company.

Dr. Raj is a practicing gastroenterologist and internist with a special interest in women's health and an assistant professor of Medicine at NYU School of Medicine. She is also the medical editor of Health magazine and is a regular contributor to the Today show and GoodDayNY. She also appears regularly on a variety of national TV shows.
