New Study Supports Antiaging Skincare Benefits for Probiotic-Derived Ingredient

Ganeden Biotech reports that a third company-conducted study supports the antiaging benefits for its Bonicel ingredient.

Ganeden Biotech (Cleveland) reports that a third company-conducted study supports the antiaging benefits for its Bonicel ingredient found by previous studies. In this third study, Bonicel-a probiotic-derived ingredient-was once again shown to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and under-eye puffiness, and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and redness in humans.

“We are thrilled that once again, a third-party, placebo-controlled study demonstrates that Bonicel is so effective as a combination antiaging beauty ingredient,” says David Keller, vice president, scientific operations, Ganeden. “Not only does it moisturize and increase skin elasticity, it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It’s impressive that one ingredient can do all that.”

Bonicel is derived from the company’s well-documented probiotic strain Ganeden BC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) and is produced naturally during Ganeden BC30’s fermentation process. The company says it utilizes proprietary processes to optimize the metabolic activity of the fermenting organism to produce maximum amounts of naturally derived L+ Lactic acid, bacteriocins, hydrogen peroxide, enzymes, and other metabolites.

According to Ganeden, Bonicel differs from other probiotic ingredients used in topical applications, including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, because it is easy to include in formulations.
