CutiBiome CLR was developed to anticipate on the ambivalence of members of the skin microbiota implied in the loss of skin health, like Cutibacterium acnes.
C. acnes is a commensal species, important for skin health, but genetic variants (phylotypes) of C. acnes, like phylotype I-A1, play a negative role for skin. CutiBiome CLR fully abolishes the film forming activity and significantly inhibits the growth of C. acnes I-A1.
Sebum, comedones, pustules and pimples are reduced dramatically, as was confirmed by instrumental determinations and the volunteers who participated in this study themselves. Other in vivo studies showed potent reduction of dandruff. 4 weeks of 3 times weekly use of a hair tonic with CutiBiome CLR lead to similar results to Piroctone Olamine, but clearly outperformed it in reducing scalp oiliness, sensitivity and itch.
