It helped my adult breakouts stop.
Begin by removing your makeup and/or sunscreen with your favorite makeup remover. Emulsify a dime-sized amount of cleanser with water and apply it to wet skin. Massage gently over your skin, avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly.
Next, let the Phortify serum do its magic. The live probiotic in the serum goes to work killing only the acne-causing bacteria, allowing the good bacteria to flourish and build a resilient microbiome. Apply 1 full pump to clean skin. Gently massage the serum onto face in small, circular motions until it’s fully absorbed. For best results, keep serum refrigerated.
Lastly, massage moisturizer onto clean skin following the serum until fully absorbed.We recommend not to use moisturizers other than Phluff as they may inactivate thelive probiotic in the Phortify serum.
Our revolutionary probiotic targets and kills only acne bacteria without killing the good bacteria. As a result it rebalances your microbiome, increases diversity, and puts your skin on the path to long-term health.
Our formulations are designed with your skin health in mind. When using acne care, you shouldn't have to choose between acne, redness, irrtation, or dryness. You can say goodbye to all of them with Phyla.
• Phyla keeps acne bacteria under 50%
• This allowed good bacteria to thrive
• Skin creates stronger protective layer
It helped my adult breakouts stop.
I'm only 3 weeks in, and my acne has DRASTICALLY improved. I am so glad I found Phyla and I can't wait to see how my skin looks in another 3 weeks.
I hate leaving anything less than 5 stars but it might not be fair in this case to the product ("it's me, not you"), but let me explain - I have really bad cystic acne, all along my jawline, and nothing topical has ever really worked. I've done it all, tried birth control, antibiotics, topical creams, facials - you name it. So I definitely wanted to try Phyla because it just works differently and as biologist it made sense.
I will say, I used it the first night and woke up to a SIGNIFICANTLY less "angry" face of breakouts. It's like it brought down the inflammation like crazy. So my first morning reaction was WOW. But it's hard to tell if Phyla is managing to fight my breakouts or not, I seem to oscillate between looking like everything is healing and then breaking out again. I think perhaps we're very slowly getting towards YES, but maybe it's a losing battle against hormones.
Will I keep using it? Yes. Would I recommend it to someone else that maybe doesn't have as many hormonal issues? Yes, absolutely.
Frequently Asked Questions
We know that skincare is deeply personal, and once you find something your skin loves, you don’t want to give it up. We want you to let Phyla be that system.
For best results, we recommend that you use the Phyla system on its own. However, if you have other must-have products in your regimen, we recommend you use Phyla at night. Remove all makeup and other products from your skin, and apply the Phortify serum (and Phluff moisturizer) as the last products before you go to bed.
Not only will this reduce the ingredient burden on your skin, but it will give our probiotic the best chance to work hard all night to recalibrate your microbiome and keep those breakouts at bay!
While in most cases we did not see the skin get worse or have any side effects (like redness or irritation), it is possible that your skin gets a bit worse initially due to the recalibration process of your skin microbiome. We recommend using the Phyla system twice daily (especially during the night) for at least 2 months to stabilize your microbiome and see your skin health improve for the long term!
While some of our customers see quick acne relief with our system, we highly recommend using our products as part of your long-term skincare regimen. Acne is a chronic skin condition, and fixing it takes time. Remember that your relationship with your skin is for life, and you will reap the benefits of a healthy microbiome long after your acne is resolved.
Stick with us for at least two months, and you’ll understand why.
The Phyla’s system is designed to be used immediately upon receipt, and completely within 2 months, while incorporated into a daily skincare regimen. The Phortify Serum does contain a live probiotic, and we would encourage this to be refrigerated rather than storing at room temperature (we store it refrigerated before shipping to you)! The Phortify serum is the only Phyla product that needs to be refrigerated and is stable without refrigeration for 2 months.
The Phortify Serum may also feel more soothing when applied with a light chill to it – kind of like a frosted glass. Ahhh!
The Phortify Serum contains our proprietary live probiotic, and just like yogurt or kombucha (or any live probiotic), it needs to be refrigerated when not in use. The Phortify Serum is designed to be used continuously for 2 months at room temperature and incorporated into a daily skincare regimen.
We are proud to make 100% of our formulations in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. Our proprietary ingredient is made in small batches and with exacting standards at our local manufacturing facility in Sonoma County.
We recommend a powder-based or mineral-based sunscreen like zinc oxide and to always apply sunscreen before sun exposure. We know that sunscreens with silicones would probably affect our phage, and just to be safe when using these types of sunscreens, we recommend that you use your sunscreen for daytime use and our serum for nighttime use.
We currently ship to all 50 U.S. However, you may experience longer delivery times if you’re ordering from Hawaii and Alaska—thank you for being patient.
