Formulated for the most sensitive skin, biobod is a simple 4-step skincare system created by founder Natalie Butler (pictured), from a desire to rethink how we approach the way we care for our skin. Scientifically developed to work with your skin, biobod products are essential oil free, fragrance free, sulphate free, hypoallergenic, pH balanced and cruelty-free, and work to help balance skin’s microbiome, restore skin’s barrier, and calm skin inflammation, helping to restore skin to a more resilient state over time.
Each product in the biobod range is formulated with a unique combination of probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics that work together to support a diverse and balanced skin microbiome. biobod prioritizes restoring the skin barrier, using a proprietary mix of Squalane derived from olive and fermented sugarcane, and a complex of Omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9 from specially selected low-comedogenic oils. In the range is the Calming Balance Cleanse Bar 100g (RRP $28), formulated with herbal extracts Centella Asiatica, Licorice Root and Collodial Oatmeal, which work together to help support skin sensitivities and hydration, and soothes irritated skin. The Replenishing Hydra-Soothe Serum 50ml (RRP $65.00) contains Pre and Postbiotics to feed good bacteria, which helps reinforce skin’s natural defences, Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium PCA, with Glycerin and Betaine to deeply hydrate, and soothing Photoactives (Tangerine Fruit Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Aloe and Green Tea) to deeply soothe and comfort skin prone to irritations. The Barrier Restore Nutrient Oil 100ml (RRP $95.00) is a regenerative multifunctional oil with a potent blend of nourishing ingredients to hydrate and revive skin. Plant derived Squalane provides hydration and supports a healthy skin biome, whilst Super Omega Complex delivers weightless nourishment and barrier repair. Antioxidants (Vitamin E and Totarol), and Soothing Phytoactives (Balloon Vine Oil Extract and Echium Oil Extract) help to neutralise free radicals, and sooth and protect against flare ups, helping to regenerate a damaged skin barrier. Last but not least, the Probiotic Salvation Balm 30g (RRP $55.00) is made with made with pure, hypoallergenic Lanolin and a probiotic developed especially for sensitive skin, to help protect from environmental irritations and restore skin’s natural defences.
Those who know me know I don’t usually have sensitive skin – so why the use of this range now? Just before Christmas I had a small accident and burnt my skin. It was sore, irritated, and compromised. I wanted to bring it back to health slowly and naturally. After a recovery period, I used the Cleanse Bar, Serum, and Probiotic Salvation on my face, and the Nutrient Oil on my legs, which bore the brunt of the burn and were the most irritated. It didn’t happen overnight, but over a period of 4 weeks, I could see the redness reduce, and could feel the irritation calm. My face has basically healed, and while my legs still have a little way to go, I am really happy with how calm and strong the skin feels – and it looks way better than I thought it would 2 months post-accident. I am going to keep using the Oil for another 2 months and see how it improves over even more time. Those who have seen my skin repair since the accident can’t believe how good it looks. NB these were my own results achieved in consultation with my health care professional. If you have burns or similar serious skin issues and want to try the range, we recommend consulting your own health care professional prior to use to make sure it is suitable for your skin. If however you have dry, sensitive, compromised skin, this range is well worth a look.
