Prebiotics & Postbiotics

Help to maintain a balanced skin microbiome by supporting the production of beneficial bacteria in the skin. In doing so, they support a healthy and balanced complexion.



Also known as vitamin B3, it boasts anti-inflammatory properties to visibly calm blemish-induced irritation while helping to regulate oil production.



A natural extract derived from oats which helps to soothe and comfort the skin.


Cinnamon Extract

With natural antibacterial properties, it helps to limit blemish-causing bacteria while also working to balance oil production.


Glycolic Acid

With the smallest particle size of all the AHAs, glycolic acid is the most powerful. It works to break down the bonds between dead skin cells, so they can be easily exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin cells beneath. The result is visibly brighter, smoother and decongested skin.

A key part of maintaining healthy skin is caring for the skin’s microbiome (the protective barrier of bacteria living on its surface). Changes in pH, hydration and environment can all affect the balance of the microbiome.

An unbalanced microbiome can lead to common skin concerns such as dryness, irritation and the formation of blemishes. That’s why Balance Moisturiser is expertly formulated with pre and postbiotics to support a balanced skin microbiome. The two work in synergy to help the skin regain its natural balance.
