Probiotics for Health and Beauty
By nature, our skin is a complex thing. It has many different and important functions, several layers, and the overwhelming need for care and attention. The epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) forms a protective wrap, like a safeguard over the surface of our bodies- and so the more we nourish it, the better.
We cannot focus on our health and in turn, forgo our skin. After all, whatever we absorb into our skin is ultimately absorbed into our body. In cognizance of this, we need to be mindful of the personal care products we use, just as we are about the food that we eat. The body is such an interconnected system that you cannot affect one thing without directly impacting another.
So, what’s the best way to look after your skin?
Most importantly, remember that your skin is as individual as you are. There are different skin types and these all require a unique approach for best results.
For instance, sensitive skin may require a little more care in terms of products used and how often they are applied. Natural products are always a far healthier route to skin health, and this is often even more important for anyone with sensitive skin. Generally, oily skin can be more prone to breakouts, dry skin needs additional moisture, and combination skin requires the balance to be maintained.
What we eat affects our skin, so nourishing our body and skin really do go hand in hand. Women that are on their menstrual cycle or menopausal may notice differences in their skin at those times. Hormones greatly affect our ability to maintain a level of balance- and this can manifest inwardly, and outwardly through the skin too.
Ultimately, our skin is always in a state of change. This can be affected by age, hormones, nutrition, water consumption, exercise, climate or sleep… the list goes on and on. The important thing is to pay attention to your skin, notice the changes and then develop a skincare routine that supports your skin as much as possible.
Good bacteria and the positive effects on your skin.
Probiotics are a well-known and 100% natural way of improving your digestion and gut health. What is less commonly known, however, is the amazing impact it can have on your skin so it looks healthier and feels better.
We may be accustomed to probiotics in breakfast drinks and yogurt, or as part of our daily nutrition in some form - but probiotics are also great when applied topically!
The good bacteria in probiotics have been clinically proven to accelerate skin cell renewal. This will leave you with healthier, younger looking skin.
Probiotics have an anti-inflammatory effect both inside and outside. When used on your skin it can help to reduce redness and inflammation that is typical with many skin conditions such as Acne.
Probiotics add a protective layer to your skin and help to restore its natural balance and seal in moisture. Maintaining the natural balance of your skin is vital to avoid it drying out, looking dull/tired, or feeling overly greasy/oily.
Probiotics essentially translate to “for life”. The benefits of probiotics apply both internally (gut health) and externally when used upon your skin. As well as all the above, they also help to protect your skin against free radicals caused by damaging UV rays, pollution, toxins, and stress.
It’s important to remember that the personal care industry is not FDA regulated. This was something that inspired Ongaro Beauty to take action and create their own brand of clean personal care products-with Probiotics and Aloe Vera as their foundational ingredients!
Ongaro Beauty: Their Purpose and Products
A mother and daughter in Texas founded Ongaro Beauty after a life-threatening diagnosis of melanoma skin cancer. During their research to determine the cause, they learned that many of the products they were using on their skin and hair contained toxic ingredients. Many of which are harmful when absorbed into the skin.
They were determined to replace their personal skin care products with healthy choices but found limited options (and those were often very expensive). When they learned that one of the largest cosmetic laboratories was located close by, they began working with their chemists to develop a new line of healthy personal care products- and Ongaro Beauty was born!
The Importance of Active Ingredients
During the research, Ongaro Beauty found that active ingredients are what produces great skincare results. For this reason, they include at least (3) actives in each of their products.
Many personal care products use water as the main base ingredient. But Ongaro found that aloe vera provides a much better delivery system for the actives to get into your skin. They know that the natural goodness of Aloe contains many vitamins and amino acids and that these are highly beneficial for both skin and health.
Ongaro’s ultimate mission is to create healthy personal care products that produce results you can see and feel at reasonable prices.
Their products are formulated using USDA-Certified Organic Aloe Vera and three powerful active ingredients -Probiotics, Peptides, and Plant Stem Cells.
Probiotics are wholly natural and can provide the skin with many benefits including moisture balance, increased cell renewal, and protection from toxins/pollutants.
Peptides help the skin form new collagen.
Plant Stem Cells help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The combination of Probiotics, Peptides, Plant Stem Cells, and Aloe Vera became the foundation of Ongaro Organic Skin, Body & Hair care products.

Ongaro Beauty’s Probiotic Enzyme Exfoliator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ongaro Beauty Launches Innovative New All-in-One Skincare Treatment With Ice Age Technology
DALLAS, TX, November 5, 2018—Ongaro Beauty, a Dallas-based organic skincare firm, is proud to announce the upcoming launch of its newest product, Complete All-in-One Skincare Treatment.
The company, founded by mother-daughter team Barbara and Brittany Ongaro of Dallas, features a best-selling line of 16 organic skin, body and hair care products formulated with the highest quality, most innovative ingredients.
Ongaro Beauty got its start after Brittany had a serious melanoma skin cancer scare in her early 20s.
“My family was shocked that someone so young could get this most deadly form of skin cancer, so we started researching possible causes. We learned that many personal care products sold in the United States contain harmful ingredients and some have been linked to cancer. Most of these toxic ingredients are banned in Europe and Japan.”
This realization led to the founding of Ongaro Beauty, according to Barbara. Today the company’s products are sold in 28 countries worldwide. These best-selling products are formulated and manufactured in the United States using the latest breakthroughs in technology and contain no harmful ingredients:
- NO sulfates
- NO petrolatum

“Our customers love our products, but they kept asking us for one product that does it all,” Barbara says. “They wanted something simple, clean, and extremely effective. We believe we have delivered that in our Complete All-in-One Skincare Treatment.”
“Everyone wants beautiful skin,” Brittany adds, “but most don’t have time to use all the serums, eye creams, gels, moisturizers, and toners needed to achieve that youthful glow. This product is designed for those busy, on-the-go individuals like us that want something quick and easy that actually works.”
Complete All-In-One Skincare Treatment by Ongaro Beauty contains a smart time-released delivery system and a total of 14 active ingredients, which is unheard of in the skincare industry. These are the active components that actually work to improve your skin. It actually contains technology from the Ice Age, including:

This amazing product addresses ALL 7 signs of aging skin:
