NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


The aim of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to investigate the effect of heat-killed Lactobacillus brevis (L. brevis) SBC8803 (SBL88™) intake on skin hydration conditions. The subjects (126 people aged between 21 and 59 years) with slightly higher levels of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) on the forearm were allocated to 3 different groups: placebo or heat-killed L. brevis SBC8803 at a daily dose of 25 or 50 mg, for 12 weeks.

Schedule for the study: Lactobacillus brevis intake & skin hydration

The results revealed that marginal differences were observed in TEWL at the neck in the 25 mg/day group at week 8 and at the lower eye region in the 50 mg/day group at week 4 (p=0.05 and 0.09, respectively, compared with the placebo group). A significant increase in corneal hydration was also observed at the neck in the 25 mg/day group at week 12 (p=0.06, as compared with the placebo group). In the analysis of the subpopulations whose habitual frequency of taking lactic fermentation products was less than once per week, the levels of corneal hydration at the neck (in the 50 mg/day group) and lower eye region (in the 25 mg/day group) were significantly increased at week 12 (p<0.05).

In conclusion, the results of this investigation suggest that oral intake of heat-killed L. brevis SBC8803 is effective at improving skin hydration conditions in populations with low habitual frequency of taking lactic fermentation products.
