Aleavia Plant-Based Prebiotic Skincare’s owner and founder Kelly Graham established our plant-based skin care brand with one thought at the heart of her mission; to find a way to naturally nourish the body’s largest organ, the skin. Kelly found that over the past few years, there has been an increased focus on organic nutrition, gut health, and probiotics. The newfound dedication to understanding how the many microbes in our digestive tract interact with our immune system and wellbeing is important, to be sure, but we would argue that nourishing the skin’s microbiome, the veritable ecosystem of the skin on which billions of microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and beyond can be found is just as important. Finding a way to naturally develop the “good bacteria” on said microbiome would be found to be an integral part of Aleavia’s philosophy. Instead of attempting to categorically exterminate all bacteria on our skin and in our body through the use of antibiotics and traditional skin care products.
Kelly’s mission wasn’t purely academic, as the root of her mission to find effective, organic skin care products was based in finding a high-quality moisturizer for eczema for her daughter. During her extensive search for an effective eczema treatment cream, she realized that there was a significant commonality found between the many traditional skin care products she was trying out on her daughter — the body has a very difficult time protecting itself when damaging chemicals found in traditional beauty products are used. The skin’s microbiome is a delicate thing, with its ecosystem having a natural balance that shouldn’t be disrupted. On each person’s skin exists billions of “good bacteria” in addition to the vast majority of innocuous microbes. When we wipe the good out with the bad, it leads to a destabilizing of the body’s harmony. Research has shown that this unsettling of one’s microbiome can lead to a variety of skin problems, from moderately dry skin to rosacea, psoriasis, acne, premature acne, eczema, and beyond.
Aleavia Plant-Based Skin Care
It’s not an exaggeration that the above information completely flips how we think about skin care on its head. Instead of thinking of antibiotics and the removal of microbes as the end-all-be-all solution for healthy skin, Kelly realized what many of us have since then — we need to feed the beneficial microbes on our skin in the same way that we need them prospering in our digestive system. While ”probiotics” generally refers to the act of placing these beneficial microorganisms into your gut, “prebiotics” is the act of feeding the beneficial microbes that have already called your skin their home.
Here is where Kelly made a leap of faith and decided to do something special. She found a prebiotic skin care formulator who offered a wealth of experience making plant-based skin care products. After taking into account the priorities of finding a plant-based, prebiotic skin care line, they formulated a regimen of organic skin care for eczema. In under 30 days, the previously undefeated eczema completely cleared up!
After Kelly could see the effectiveness of prebiotic skin care for herself, Aleavia Plant-Based Skincare was conceived. Today, we have become an organic skin care brand with an intentional focus on offering prebiotic effectiveness while using seven organic ingredients. While we understand that there are plenty of all-natural skincare brands and there is a risk of getting lost in the shuffle, we offer something unique at Aleavia. We are an organic skin care company with a mission of spreading the news about the correct way to understand skin health. For the remainder of today’s post, we will be highlighting what goes into our prebiotic skin care products, so that our prospective customers can be very clear about our products and process. So whether you are looking for vegan skin care for eczema or you simply are looking for an organic skincare treatment routine that is effective, read on, because we are excited to tell you more about Aleavia!
