Can Probiotic Body Wash Be Your Sensitive Skin Savior?

Hey there, fellow sensitive skin squad! Are you tired of playing roulette with skincare products, never knowing which one will trigger a flare-up next? The endless cycle of irritation, redness, and frustration. It's too much to take. 

However, if we tell you there's a potential saviour on the horizon, will you guys believe us? This saviour looks like stepping into the shower and lathering up with a gentle formula that not only cleanses but also nourishes and protects your delicate skin barrier.  

What’s different with sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin is a bit more delicate than the rest which makes it more prone to reactions like inflammation and redness. If you've got sensitive skin, you might notice some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Frequent itching
  • Breakouts
  • Stinging and burning sensations in certain areas of the skin.
  • Rashes 
  • Prone to sunburn
  • Skin that cracks, blisters or bleeds
  • Open sores 
  • Yellow crust over the skin
  • Peeling skin
  • Dry, flaky patches 

But, What Causes Sensitive Skin to React This Way? Need to Get a Closer Look.


Sensitive skin refers to  heightened sensitivity of the nerve endings in the upper layers of the skin and can develop from using harsh body washes over time, triggering sensitivity reactions like redness, itching, and inflammation. Alongside this, the following are a few things that can set off this sensitive squad. So, here are a few suspects to watch out for:

  • Body Wash:
    • Body washes with chemicals like sulfates or alcohol (denatured alcohol or isopropyl alcohol) have been proven to take away your skin's natural oils which make it more and more irritated.
    • Artificial fragrances and dyes, for example, phthalates and added colour in the body washes trigger sensitivity reactions, causing extreme redness. 
    • Common preservatives like Methylisothiazolinone can act as an irritant and cause inflammatory reactions in response to its usage.
  • Dry Skin


  • If you neglect your dry skin, it can easily become a vicious cycle of frequent moisture loss, resulting in parched, irritated skin. This can further worsen skin reactions (eg: Rosacea), especially when the skin's protective barrier is compromised. 


  • Excessive dry skin can also cause Contact dermatitis, which is swollen, itchy rashes caused by the skin’s reaction to irritants or allergens. For instance, nickel in jewellery, certain laundry detergents, or synthetic fabrics like polyester can rub against your skin and cause this particular condition. 


  • Environmental Weather


  • Beware of the extremes! Whether it's scorching heat or bone-chilling cold, sensitive skin can become a nightmare, prone to uncomfortable sensations and potential flare-ups. In the winter, dry air becomes your enemy, leaving skin vulnerable to irritation. But don't let your guard down in the summer either, as humid weather can turn your skin into a breeding ground for sweat-induced breakouts and clogged pores.


  • Invisible airborne pollutants cling to your skin like tiny invaders, threatening to wreak havoc on your complexion. These particles have the power to irritate your skin, compromising its natural barrier. As they settle onto your delicate skin, triggering sensitivity and leaving you feeling defenceless against their harmful effects.

Do we have a saviour? 

Yes, yes. We do! The probiotic body wash for sensitive skin– a game changer! 

Probiotics in body washes are an exciting breakthrough in skincare, known for their scientifically proven ability to restore balance to the skin's microbiome. These natural, beneficial bacteria act as a barrier against allergens, keeping inflammation at bay, promoting wound healing and ultimately, preventing the overgrowth of  "bad" bacteria. 

When too many of the bad bacteria decide to crash the skin party, it can disrupt the optimal condition of the epidermis and its microbiome, leading to symptoms such as redness, dryness, and itching, commonly associated with eczema. Additionally, without the good bacteria on the skin to regulate the balance, bad bacteria can multiply quickly and cause havoc (infection). Apart from worsening eczema symptoms, these bad bacteria can also result in painful red boils or abscesses on the skin, and in severe cases, can even lead to blood infections.

Clinically demonstrated to effectively reduce the appearance of redness and irritation, probiotics with its army of good bacteria help your skin fight against all of them while sealing in moisture, resulting in a more luminous, hydrated complexion. Moreover, probiotics in body washes serve as a shield against environmental stressors and free radicals that accelerate ageing, potentially diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These body washes are often free from sneaky culprits like fragrances and harsh detergents, making them ideal for sensitive skin. 

Final Thoughts

if you're on the quest for your sensitive skin saviour, don't shy away from giving probiotic body wash a whirl! With its gentle yet effective touch, it might just be the superhero your skin has been waiting for. So lather up, embrace the bubbly goodness, and let the probiotic magic work its wonders. Here's to your happy and healthy skin!
