RE-CONNECTING NATURE® MICROBE EXTRACT

According to research, treatment with Re-Connecting Nature® microbe extract reduces the formation of inflammatory cytokines on the skin.

Uute Scientific Oy carried out an in vivo study in which it was found that Re-Connecting Nature® extract contains cream that strengthens the skin's protective layer after three weeks of regular use. The skin care benefits were already visible in three weeks as higher stress tolerance of the skin.

Benefits of products containing the extract:

  • helps to restore the skin's natural microbiome balance
  • strengthens the skin's protective layer
  • supports the diversity of the skin's natural microbiome
  • supports the function of the skin's protective layer by reducing the amount of pro-inflammatory cytokines that have been linked to disorders of the skin's protective layer in several studies
  • helps maintain the normal function of the skin's protective layer and the formation of collagen in aging skin and stressful life situations
  • accelerates skin regeneration and repair
  • relieves skin redness and irritation
I had atopic skin in really bad shape for many years. There was stress and mold exposure and all really showed in my "exploded" skin. I tried dozens of products. After I discoveredInfinity oil cleansing cake, my skin is like new; healthy and beautiful. Infinity literally saved my skin.
