The skin microbiome – a new hot topic
Creating the right environment for skin microbiome
Skincare and bacteria – a changing narrative
Scientists, dermatologists and beauty brands have all been asking these questions in recent months. In the past, bacteria have been perceived as something that need to be removed from the skin but this view is beginning to change. Increasingly, creating a healthy environment for all bacteria on the skin is thought to be key to achieving a balanced, resilient complexion and natural glow.
Fresh perspective on skin microbiome
So what does a healthy skin ecosystem really mean for the personal care industry? And what do consumers think? To gain more insights and facilitate understanding, DSM has embarked on both original scientific research and parallel market-related studies. We hope our findings will provide greater clarity on this topic to cosmetics producers and consumers.
Our scientific research also enhances our current approach to epidermal care, Epibiotics, which supports the skin microbiome, underpinned by two of our well-established actives: SYN-UP™ and PENTAVITIN®.
