Problem skin

What is skin with imperfections?

It’s a skin that is prone to pimples, greasiness, and acne. The cause is often the overgrowth of one pesky bacteria, C. acnes.

How to treat problem skin?

At Gallinée we propose a gentle but very effective approach:

  1. Feed the good bacteria to starve the bad: Thanks to selective prebiotics which can slow the growth of C. acnes
  2. Be extra gentle: By not stripping the skin we make sure the good bacteria can protect your skin barrier and prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria, even on sensitive skin
  3. Lower the pH of the skin: By using pH-lowering lactic acid, we make sure only the right bacteria can thrive, as the acne bacteria is happier at more alkaline pH.
