Danné Montague-King founded the brand the bears his initials decades ago. And according to this month’s media release about the new product line, the brand’s focus “has always been to remove, rebuild, protect and maintain an individual’s biochemistry with the appropriate skin therapy,” as Montague-King notes.
For the new Enbioment Microbiome Probiotic System, he says, “Our focus was to create a simple streamline product line that would work with the skin’s own healthy bacteria, while boosting the skin’s own immune system regardless of the user’s age, race or gender.”
A three-step microbiome skin care system
The Enbioment Microbiome Probiotic System from DMK Skincare launched at the start of September with just 3 products: a cleanser, a mist, and a serum.
As a first step in the system the pH-neutral cleanser is meant to “cleanse the skin and acts as a prebiotic to help remove excess colonies of bad bacteria without stripping the skin of all its good bacteria. It provides the proper environment for establishing and maintaining a healthy microbiome,” according to the brand’s media release.
The mist (step two) was designed to “act as a prebiotic to establish the proper environment and provide the nutrients necessary to rebuild good bacteria found in healthy skin.” And the serum step “reintroduces healthy bacteria and encourages the reestablishment of existing healthy bacteria essential to maintaining skin health.”
Microbes and other ingredients
Like many probiotic skin care products on the market today, the Enbioment Microbiome Probiotic System is formulated with lactobacillus. And while this microorganism is rarely present on adult skin, it’s commonly the first to colonize human skin after birth. So brands in the microbiome beauty movement often suggest that it can help restore skin to a more original quality and/or help the skin repopulate its own microbial environment.
All three products in the new DMK product line are formulated with Lactobacillus Ferment and Yeast Ferment Extract, according to the ingredient lists on dannemking.com. The cleanser also includes Lactobacillus/RyeFlour Ferment. And the serum formula has Bacillus (100B/gm).
The Enbioment Microbiome Probiotic System was designed for use on and by people with atopic dermatitis or eczema, rashes, acne, or reactive skin; so other ingredients in the product formulas address skin issues relevant to those concerns: “DMK created this line to neutralize the skin’s pH level with rich anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic property ingredients like olive fruit oil, snow mushroom, green tea, Vitamin E and Vitamin C,” as a spokesperson for the brand tells Cosmetics Design.
