Anti-aging Skin Care Product Expansion Confirms Benefits of Probiotic Technology

Ganeden® and Smart-N-Healthy partnership brings awareness to beauty advantages of Bonicel

CLEVELAND (March 22, 2016) Ganeden® is well-known for the health benefits of its patented strain of probiotic, GanedenBC30®, in food and beverages. Now, the company continues to shine light on the usefulness of probiotic technology in skin care, with the addition of two new anti-aging products to Smart-N-Healthy’s Probiotic Bodycare line—both using Bonicel, an ingredient produced naturally during the fermentation of GanedenBC30

The new launches, Advanced StemBiotics Anti-Aging Serum and Advanced Age Defying Crème, are natural and organic skin care products that use the probiotic technology of Ganeden’s Bonicel for its anti-aging benefits. Bonicel is the first science-backed, probiotic-derived skin care ingredient shown to significantly improve the appearance of seven common signs of aging. The ingredient is being pushed out to top beauty companies and continues to increase in popularity for inclusion in lotions, creams, gels, powders, scrubs, masks and cleansers. 

“We’re proud to offer an ingredient that can provide so many impressive benefits, from improved skin hydration, elasticity and under eye puffiness to reduced appearance in pore size, fine lines, redness and wrinkles,” said Mike Bush, senior vice president of Ganeden and executive board president for the International Probiotics Association. “We are seeing introductions of topical skin care products with varying forms of probiotic use, but few, if any, have research confirming their benefit at time of application, like Bonicel.” 

Advanced StemBiotics Anti-Aging serum for the face, eyes and neck contains ingredients such as Bonicel, plant stem cells, soothing aloe, licorice and collagen-boosting advanced peptides for a high performance, anti-aging and multi-purpose serum that transforms the skin—leaving it firmer, brighter and more youthful. Advanced Age Defying Crème reverses visible signs of aging with natural hydration enhancing ingredients, including Vitamin C for long-lasting radiance and Bonicel, resulting in visibly younger and vibrant skin that’s moisturized and nourished. All products contain no sulfates, parabens or gluten and are never tested on animals. 

“Using the benefits of probiotic technology in our skin-care line created the perfect combination of science and nature,” said Jacqueline Gelardi, president of Smart-N-Healthy. “Bonicel is a valuable addition to Probiotic Bodycare, meeting our standards for a research-backed, non-GMO, gluten free, naturally-occurring and organic compliant ingredient with proven results.” 

Advanced StemBiotics Anti-Aging Serum and Advanced Age Defying Crème are available for sale now on the Smart-N-Healthy website. The launches will soon be followed by the introduction of a body lotion and body butter with Bonicel. To learn more about Smart-N-Healthy’s Probiotic Bodycare line, visit Probioticbodycare.com.
