A Benzene-Free Scientific Breakthrough

A Clinically Proven Acne Treatment For Hormonal & Cystic Acne

Our Ph.D. scientists have isolated a naturally occurring probiotic that destroys the acne-causing bacteria without the harsh side effects of traditional acne treatments like drying and redness. This dermatologist-approved probiotic is available without a prescription and has helped 10,000+ clear their acne. Phyla is benzene-free, so there are no carcinogens.

Acne is caused by bacterial overgrowth

Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) is one species in your diverse skin microbiome. In individuals with acne, there is an overgrowth of C. acnes and an imbalance in your microbiome which leads to inflammation and acne. This imbalance gets exacerbated by traditional acne treatments that non-specifically kill all of the bacteria in your microbiome (even the good ones!) and destroy your skin moisture barrier.

Why Phyla is Different From Other Acne Treatments

The science for treating acne is evolving — probiotics are the new technology advancing treatment.

"Medications prescribed for inflammatory acne are typically antibiotics. Other medications such as topical retinoids and benzoyl peroxide are also prescribed for acne. While these medications kill C. Acnes, they are all associated with side effects and can be very irritating to skin. Also, they do not specifically target C. Acnes, the bacteria responsible for acne. As a result, they kill the "good" bacteria as well, disrupting the microbiome on your skin. Phylas's serum contains probiotics that actually target and destroy C. acnes."

Why Phyla Works

Revolutionary Treatment
