Comparing Celavive Products

There are multiple cleansers under the Celavive line. Each with different strengths and benefits.

Let’s compare Celavive Skin Cleansers:

Celavive Gentle Milk Cleanser Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser Celavive Creamy Foam Cleanser
Soap-free, non-foaming Minimal soap Soap-based, foaming
Extremely Gentle Gentle cleanser Exfoliating action
Dry and sensitive skin All skin types (sensitive, blemish-prone) Oily, combination skin
Very gently washes dirt away Gently removes dirt, oils and impurities Removes dead cells, dirt, and impurities

The Celavive Gentle Milk Cleanser — is a soap-free, non-foaming cleanser that restores soothing protective moisture while it gently washes away dirt and impurities. This cleanser works best for dry and sensitive skin types.

The Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser — minimal soap and a mild cleansing foam that removes dirt, oil and impurities without over-drying or stripping the skin. You’ll feel a slight cooling effect on the skin to soothe and calm. In terms of strength, the Calming Cleanser is right in the middle of the other two. It removes more oil than the Milk Cleanser, but its gentler than the Creamy Foam Cleanser. This cleanser works for all skin types, especially sensitive or blemish-prone skin.

The Celavive Creamy Foam Cleanser — is a soap-based cleanser that visibly balances oil as it cleanses. It also aids the skin’s natural exfoliation process as the rich foaming action removes dead cells from the top layer of the skin. This cleanser is best for oily or combination skin.

The Postbiotic Rescue Serum is specifically designed for visibly problematic skin. It’s gentle and holistic, working in symbiosis with the skin microbiome to support your natural barrier. If your skin is sensitive, but you want to improve the appearance of breakouts—this serum is for you.

The Celavive Vitalizing Serum is designed from an anti-aging perspective. It targets wrinkles, fine lines and texture of the skin.

These serums can be used interchangeably in your skincare routine depending on the needs of your skin at any given moment. Or you can stick with the one that meets your needs best.

Your Skin Microbiome: The Secret to Healthy Looking Skin

Dry skin. Visible fine lines. Redness. If you’re struggling with visibly problematic skin, you’re not alone. But did you know that these common skin issues can stem from an imbalanced skin microbiome? When there’s an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria on your skin, your natural skin barrier can’t function properly.

Environmental and physiological factors can disrupt the balance of your skin flora:

  • Age
  • Harsh products
  • Stress
  • Pollutants
  • Dry climate

When your skin microbiome is compromised, you’ll lose moisture from your skin and experience more redness, dryness, and premature aging.

Just like your gut flora, the skin microbiome is made up of millions of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. But they’re more than just idle companions—they help your skin look and feel its best. And now there’s a microbiome-friendly choice for your skincare regimen.

Embrace your beauty biome—and enjoy a healthy-looking complexion—with Celavive Postbiotic Skincare.

What Are Postbiotics?

By now you’re almost certainly familiar with probiotics—good microorganisms that provide health benefits to the gut. Probiotic supplements and products filled the market after years of scientific research illuminated the role of the microbiome on health.

Postbiotics are a relatively new biotechnology emerging from the era of probiotics. They are non-living bacteria and metabolic byproducts from probiotic bacteria. These byproducts can include short-chain fatty acids, peptides, organic acids, enzymes, and more. They offer many of the same benefits as probiotics, but can be used in a larger variety of product applications.

Postbiotic Benefits for the Skin

The intestine isn’t the only place in the body where a diverse, and symbiotic microbiome exists.

Millions of microbes call your skin home. Don’t worry—most of them are harmless. Some, however, are vital to your skin’s health and appearance. This is your skin microbiome. Biologically speaking, the skin microbiome isn’t much different from your gut microbiome. It helps strengthen and protect the skin’s barrier while supporting its various functions. That’s why postbiotics have various benefits for the skin just like they do for the gut.

Recent studies in dermatology suggest that skin sensitivity may be higher when the skin microbiome is less robust and diverse. And in fact, studies of the skin microbiota in people with sensitive skin have shown less bacterial diversity. Although further research continues to be conducted, these findings may be related to the skin microbiome’s role in protecting the skin from invaders, threats, and moisture loss.

As part of a microbiome-friendly formula, postbiotics work in symbiosis with your skin to:

  • Promote moisturized, radiant-looking skin
  • Visibly balance and replenish the skin microbiota
  • Support the retention of moisture
  • Promote the growth of healthy skin bacteria
  • Support the immune barriers of the skin

Instead of stripping your skin of its beauty biome, support its appearance with skincare that embraces your natural skin flora.

Postbiotic Calming Cleanser: Soothe and Restore Your Skin Daily

Face it—your skin gets filthy throughout the day. Dead skin cells. Dirt. Oil. Dust. All that grime can dull your natural glow. That’s why cleansing the skin regularly is such an important step in your skincare routine. This gentle, daily skin cleanser is loaded with active ingredients, including postbiotics, to give your skin the ultimate, holistic cleanse that’s perfect for sensitive or blemish-prone skin.

Choose a skin cleanser that has it all:

  • Gentle cleansing foam removes oil, dirt, and impurities from the skin
  • Supports a visibly balanced skin microbiome
  • Doesn’t strip moisture or microbiota from the skin
  • Slight cooling effect that soothes and calms

Experience fresh, hydrated, and healthy-looking skin with the Postbiotic Calming Cleanser.

Postbiotic: Lactobacillus Ferment

The Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser includes Lactobacillus ferment, a postbiotic obtained from the fermentation of Lactobacillus arizonensis (one of the most popular strains of probiotic bacteria). Lactobacillus is known for its ability to acclimate to dry desert conditions. Which is why postbiotics from Lactobacillus are such powerful moisturizing agents. Lactobacillus ferment is included in this formula to target dry skin and restore hydration and luminosity.

Lactobacillus ferment supports the skin by:

  1. Boosting production of proteins and lipids in the skin’s structure
  2. Activates skin cell turnover and renewal
  3. Preserves a balanced looking skin microbiome

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is a popular ingredient in beauty and skincare products because of its numerous benefits. Its chemical composition is similar to the oils that your skin produces naturally, making it well absorbed and tolerated by your skin. Sweet almond oil moisturizes, nourishes, and soothes the skin. It may support a healthy-looking complexion, improve the appearance of wrinkles, and support normal skin elasticity. It’s especially popular in high end skin care and beauty techniques in Japan.

Olivol Botanical Blend

This unique blend of fruit extracts restores rejuvenating moisture to your skin. The Olivol Botanical Blend includes olive fruit extract, watermelon rind (Citrullus lanatus), lentil (Lens esculenta), and apple (Pyrus malus) fruit extracts. These ingredients have been clinically shown to rehydrate the skin for up to 24 hours after one application. You’ll notice increased moisture, visibly smoother skin, and reduced appearance of dry or flaky skin.

Lactic Acid

Lactic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) commonly used in skincare products for its ability to exfoliate and promote the shedding of dead skin cells. Through this mechanism, lactic acid helps soften and smooth the skin and improve its overall texture.


Wash your face with the Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser twice a day. Once in the morning, and once before bed.

When using the Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser, follow these general guidelines for best results:

  • Wash your hands
    • Before touching your face, ensure that your hands are clean to avoid transferring dirt or bacteria to your skin
  • Wet Your Face
    • Use lukewarm water to wet your face. If the water is too hot, it can strip your natural microbes and oils from the skin. If it’s too cold, it won’t effectively loosen the hold of oils and debris within the pores.
  • Apply Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser
    • Dispense a dime-sized amount of Celavive Postbiotic Calming Cleanser onto your fingertips. Use gentle, circular motions to spread the cleanser over your face, jawline, neck, and behind the ears if needed. Lather the cleanser over your skin gently.
  • Rinse Thoroughly
    • Rinse the cleanser off your face with lukewarm water, making sure to remove all traces of residue.
  • Pat Dry
    • Pat your face dry with a clean towel and proceed with your usual skincare routine (moisturizer etc..).

Epimedium sagitattum Extract (barrenwort/horny goat weed)

Epimedium sagitattum Extract contains a component called Grandiciin, which specifically helps improve the appearance of the beauty biome.

Epimedium sagitattum, otherwise known as horny goat weed, is an ancient Chinese remedy that was believed to have anti-microbial properties. As modern science studied these claims, researchers uncovered antioxidant and anti-microbial properties capable of limiting the growth of harmful C. acnes biofilms, and thereby making redness due to dry skin less visible. This ingredient combines the wisdom and history of Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern scientific practices.

All of these features as a whole make E. sagitattum extract an exciting new ingredient for dry or problematic skin.

Moisture is the key to glowing skin. Moisturized skin stays flexible and helps your skin appear plump and youthful. Microbiome-friendly postbiotics help your skin hold that moisture in. That’s why Lactobacillus ferment is a key ingredient in Postbiotic Barrier Balm.

Postbiotic: Lactobacillus Ferment

When probiotics first appeared in supplements, Lactobacilli received considerable attention for its live strain benefits. New research now points to the benefits of the metabolites Lactobacilli produces during fermentation. In fact, some scientists described Lactobacilli as a biochemical factory that produces many beneficial molecules—like the makeup of Lactobacillus ferment.

Lactobacillus ferment has many postbiotic benefits for dry skin:

  • Preserves the visible balance of skin tone
  • Visibly hydrates dry and dull-looking skin
  • Supports your radiant complexion

Lactobacillus is known for its ability to easily adapt and acclimate to extreme conditions of dryness.

Noteworthy Ingredients

The powerful emollient and “super-moisturizer” Cupuacu butter joins forces with Lactobacillus ferment and the Celavive Olivol Botanical Blend to supply intense hydration. Together, these ingredients restore the appearance of elasticity to help make the skin look supple and smooth. Borage oil is also a little-known secret that can keep your skin visibly looking healthy. Not only does it add more moisture to the mix, but it also provides direct relief for very dry skin.

The 5 Ceramide included in this formula also hydrates the look of the moisture barrier. Ceramides are fatty molecules (lipids) that occur naturally in the skin, but they can also be applied topically to help support appearance of the skin barrier’s hydration and visible strength.

Celavive Postbiotic Barrier Balm drenches your skin in nourishing Cupuacu butter, Olivol Botanical Blend, and Borage oil to hydrate your skin. While the postbiotic Lactobacillus ferment is microbiome-friendly for long-lasting hydration and radiance.

Apply it as a morning beauty treatment for extremely dry or sensitive areas. And use it as an all-over nightly regimen to enjoy clearer, more luminous-looking skin.


Use morning and night to protect the skin’s moisture barrier. Apply daily to a clean face and neck or other dry skin. Follow with SPF for daytime use.
