How they work
Prebiotics beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria on the skin, and thus improves host health.
Feed your skin microbiome! Prebiotics act as good for the microbes on the skin, and allow good bacteria to grow and thrive.
Probiotics are living microorganisms that confer benefit to the host when applied to the body.
Because probiotics are live bacteria, it is incredibly difficult to preserve and put into skincare products (especially when skincare contains preservatives). In fact, some products on the market that say they use probiotics, are actually using prebiotics or postbiotics.
Postbiotics are the byproduct of fermented live bacteria (probiotics) or inactivated microorganisms.
The process of fermentation releases nutrients inside of the bacteria and holds concentrated and nourishing skin health benefits that help to balance the skin microbiome.

What are the benefits of the app?You will have access to your Skin Profile at the touch of your hand. It is always accessible as it is on your mobile phone. You will also have access to our Discoveries and skin tips which will help you to make better-informed decisions about your skin.
What is the Skin Health Tracker?The Skin Health Tracker is a mobile application that can be downloaded on iOS and Google Play that will help you track your skin over time. Once you have ordered your kit and activated it, you will receive the results of your test on your Skin Health Tracker within 2-3 weeks.
What will your Skin Profile on the app tell you?Your Sequential Skin report gives you a clear and in-depth look at your Skin Microbiome Balance Index score, which reflects the state of your skin microbiome and assesses the effects that your physical environment has on your skin. It will also highlight the age of your skin based on the test and give you tips on how to rebalance your skin microbiome.
How can your skincare routine affect your skin microbiome?If you are using harsh ingredients that contain alcohol and irritants, it can severely disbalance your skin microbiome. You may think you are using products that are helping your skin, but instead, they are having adverse effects. This is why it is so important to test your skin microbiome and see if you might need a change of routine.
What does it mean to have a balanced microbiome?Your skin microbiome health is measured by how equally dispersed the bacteria on your skin are compared to one another. When one or more bacteria dominate others, you might face skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. Our test measures 20 microbes and provides you with a full report so you can transcend your skin to its optimal level.
What is your skin microbiome?Your skin microbiome is formed of the billions of microbes that sit on the surface of your skin but also line the gut, mouth, and other parts of the body. At Sequential Skin, we focus solely on your skin microbiome, testing it and providing you with solutions to balance it. Your microbiome is essential to your skin health and it is unique to you.
What affects your skin microbiome?The skin microbiome is largely impacted by your external environment, such as your location, pollution levels, and the skincare products that you use. This means that your skin is ever-changing and constantly adapting to different elements. It’s also influenced by internal factors, like gut health, making it unique to each of us.
What is the shelf life of the masks?You can find the manufacturing and best before date details printed on the front of the mask sachet. Please note that when the packaging is opened, the Biome Mask™ must be used immediately.
Are the masks biodegradable?Yes, each Biome Mask™ is made of semi-gel Tencel, which is 100% biodegradable.
What is the purpose of using a sheet mask?When it comes to skincare products, many don’t absorb into the skin, they evaporate, leaving none of the benefits to soak in. With sheet masks, a barrier is formed to lock in the ingredients and promote absorption resulting in plumper feeling skin.
How long should the mask be left on the face?Our Biome Mask™ should be left on the skin for 15-20 minutes. Once you remove the mask, you can massage the excess formula into your skin for maximum benefit.
What ingredients are used in the Biome Mask™?Each of our sheet masks comes with a fully transparent list of ingredients used in the mask. We do not use any of the following in our sheet masks: irritants, fragrances, essential oils, sulfates, formaldehyde releasers, nanoparticles, ethanolamines, and alcohol.
What is the Biome Mask™ made from?We provide Semi-Gel Tencel masks that are made of 100% cellulose material and are eco-friendly. Each one of our masks is infused with serums that target your specific skin care needs. Semi-gel Tencel masks have the remarkable ability to retain moisture, making them better than cotton sheet masks and feel softer on the skin.
How long does it take to receive results?Results are received within 2-3 weeks.
How is the sample collected?We recommend taking the test first thing in the morning, before you shower or wash your face, so the patch captures a sample when your skin is in its most natural state. Simply stick the Sequential patch on your forehead (adhesive side down) for 10 seconds and then put it in the test tube provided, and mail it back to us. More thorough instructions are included in the test kit.
What will the report tell you?Your Sequential Skin report gives you a clear and in-depth look at your Skin Microbiome Balance, which reflects the state of your skin microbiome and assesses the effects that your physical environment has on your skin. It will also highlight the age of your skin based on the test.
Where are the results received?Your skin microbiome test results can be accessed through the Skin Health Tracker mobile application.
