This product answers to 6 concerns
- Age Management

The Probiotic Concentrate has been tested both in laboratory studies looking at gene expression and in small human clinical trials using special scanning technology that measures the speed of cell turnover. It was found to hasten skin renewal, improve the cohesiveness of skin cells to vastly improve the barrier, and amplify skin’s own production of antibiotic-like chemicals.
Drop a small “pearl sized” amount on the tips of your ring and index fingers and gently press into the skin of the face and neck. Use daily (AM & PM) for an all-over treatment.
