Revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash
The skin is far and away the largest organ of the human body. What you might not realize about your skin is that it is literally a microbiologic zoo, housing hundreds of different bacteria, many very beneficial and a few which can ruin your appearance or have destructive health consequences.
If you are interested in healthy skin, you must understand that the friendly bacteria living on your skin are not disease causing. They are actually an integral part of you. The truth is that we are a mix of human cells and microorganisms, i.e. friendly bacteria that lives on our skin and provides important health promoting functions.
Unfortunately, living among the large populations of friendly bacteria, there can also be quite diverse and vibrant colonies of unhealthy bacteria. These unhealthy bacteria are different genetically from the friendly bacteria, and the relative strength of the various friendly versus unfriendly bacteria colonies determines the health and appearance of our skin.
Enter Lemongrass Spa Products’ Prebiotic Body Wash, which is an alkaloid-based biostimulant that feeds a wide variety of friendly microorganisms on the skin. Mark Hesseling, Product Development Manager at Lemongrass Spa Products, created a similar product years ago when he was in the environmental sciences industry. He learned how to manipulate bacteria to make it resilient to chemicals. Some of his coworkers used his concoction on their skin and started noticing incredible healing from dryness and skin issues.
Mark said, “This 100% natural, organic, ‘friendly bacteria’ food source causes healthy bacteria to go into a feeding frenzy, resulting in much higher activity levels of normal, friendly bacteria. Over a very short period of time, the healthy bacteria will completely overwhelm any harmful bacteria, virtually eliminating skin disorders of many types.”
According to Mark, the ingredients, including sea kelp, help balance the pH of the skin and act as emollients. The wash works in a positive manner with the body’s biosystem to aid in skin restoration and include natural healing agents, which expedite the recovery and repair of skin from blemishes, scars and wounds.
“Using Lemongrass Spa Prebiotic Body Wash over a period of weeks, the microbial population of those skin areas will dramatically shift. When the body is a less desirable host for skin conditions to manifest, survive and thrive, those skin blemishes and diseases will disappear. I’ve seen some remarkable results from clients who suffered from dry, itchy and unsightly skin who are now raving about how soft and healthy their skin has become. In fact, many people use the wash instead of shampoo as part of their daily routine because of how moisturizing it can be,” he said.
The Prebiotic Wash is offered in eight varieties to suit men, women and children. The selections include Almond, Lavender Mint*, Grapefruit Lily, Pomegranate, Spearmint Eucalyptus*, Unscented, Baby* and Men’s Essentials*. *Certified organic essential oil blends.
