Forest Extract

“Exposure for as little as two weeks can improve the biodiversity of a human living in a city.”

Forest's health effects now added to consumer products

Diverse nature is swarming with microbes beneficial to your health. The more the digital screen keeps you indoors, the feebler is your exposure to microbes and nature.

When the body’s defence mechanism doesn’t get the exposure to microbes it needs, the risk of immune-mediated diseases grows. These diseases include autoimmune diseases like allergies, asthma, type 1 diabetes, rheumatism, and Crohn’s disease. In autoimmune diseases the body attacks its own cells and tissues because it mistakes them for alien tissue.

The Adele projects of the universities of Helsinki and Tampere have revealed more facts on the crucial role that exposure to nature plays in preventing immune-mediated diseases. The projects have used the latest in medical and human ecology studies and brought that knowledge together with urban planning.

In just half a century, many immune-mediated diseases have become more and more common, especially in urban environments. One reason behind this is the reduced biological diversity in the environment we live in. It’s not a small problem, as up to one fifth of the population in developed countries have severe immune defence mechanism disorders.

Life without immune mediated diseases?

The Finnish company UUTE Scientific Oy has based their research on the results of the Adele projects. Their goal is ambitious, but not impossible: a life without immune-mediated diseases. In the spirit of these projects, you can now get your daily dose of nature exposure from consumer products. It’s all made possible by Reconnecting Nature™ microbe extract, developed by UUTE Scientific Oy.

Usually probiotics contain a couple of different bacteria, micro-organisms, and eukaryotes at best. The new microbe extract contains thousands. The use of products containing the extract balances the microbiota – a body’s own ecosystem of sorts – and strengthens the immune system. Reconnecting Nature™ recovers a healthy connection to nature.

”What is important is the widest possible exposure to biodiversity and bacteria. However, it would be good to do things in a controlled way.” – MD, PhD, Professor of Virology at Tampere University, Co-Founder Heikki Hyöty 

Luonkos forest cakes are an excellent example of products containing added microbe extract that regulates your body’s defence mechanism and protects from immune-mediated diseases. The cakes are the first cosmetic products in the world to transport indoors the “forest baths”, as UUTE Scientific Oy aptly describes their Reconnecting Nature™ microbe extract.

“As a company, we also support the creation and maintenance of a nature connection in traditional ways. Our microbial extract is a scientifically proven additional support to the life of a busy urban person. ” – PhD, COO, Co-Founder Olli Laitinen

Forest bath from natural cosmetics

Our forest cakes are a great example of products, which have immune boosting microbe extract helping in prevention of immune mediated diseases. These cakes are the first products in the cosmetic field to bring the benefits of forest baths indoors.
