Barrier Culture: FAQs

Do I need to refrigerate this product because of the probiotic?

No, the probiotic technology we use in this formula is room temperature and shelf stable. It has undergone a processed technique which stabilizes the microbe without splitting it’s cell wall, so most importantly, your skin recognizes it as “live” bacteria.

Can I use this if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, it’s safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Is this formula clean and natural?


Can I use this alongside supplements?

Absolutely, we believe the best approach comes from addressing a concern internally and externally which is why we create topical and ingestible supplements. SKIN FILTER and SKIN HYDRATOR are great pairings for these formulas.

Can I use this with The Pill?

Yes, it works really well with THE PILL – the formulas are designed to be used together. We’d recommend using THE PILL after cleansing and before your BARRIER CULTURE MOISTURISER either AM or PM, depending on your routine.

Can I use this if I have blemish prone skin?

Dermatologists and skin specialists agree that nearly all issues they see are linked to an impaired skin barrier, including breakouts and blemishes. Supporting the health of your skin through repairing your skin barrier function will reduce the symptoms of an impaired skin barrier - i.e. breakouts, dryness, redness and sensitivity. In fact, in our consumer trial over six weeks 58% of people reported a reduction in breakouts.

How quickly will I see results from using this product?

It really depends on your skin – everyone is different. Some people see results start to appear within a week and others longer. It’s worth remembering that it takes around 40-50 days for a full skin cell turnover cycle, so you really shouldn’t judge before then. On average we’d recommend testing for six weeks before assessing results.
