Bioactivity of glycolipopeptide cell-bound biosurfactants against skin pathogens

  • International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, 109, 971-979, 2018

Publisher: Elsevier


The antimicrobial and anti-adhesive activities of the cell-bound biosurfactants, produced by Lactobacillus pentosus (PEB), characterized as glycolipopeptide macromolecules, were evaluated against several microorganisms present in the skin microflora, envisaging its potential use as a “natural” ingredient in cosmetic and personal care formulations. Their performance was compared with another cell-bound biosurfactants also characterized as glycolipopeptides produced by Lactobacillus paracasei (PAB). At concentrations of 50 mg/mL, the PEB showed an important antimicrobial activity against Pseudom ...
