The skin microbiome - the key to improving dry skin conditions?
SYN-UP® - fights against dry skin conditions
The role of Staphylococcus Epidermidis and Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii in skin barrier health
Staphylococcus Epidermidis is a keystone bacterium for the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and most strains play a role in maintaining skin health (1) (2).
Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii is also part of the normal skin microbiota, but increased levels have been associated with skin redness(3).
DSM’s novel, in vivo study reveals that SYN-UP® fights against dry skin conditions and skin redness by boosting levels of Staphylococcus Epidermidis and reducing Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii levels. See graph:
By influencing Staphylococcus Epidermidis and Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii levels in the skin microbiome and rebalancing urokinase and plasmin symbiotically, SYN-UP® fights against dry skin conditions and redness. This means consumers can have confidence in achieving a stronger skin barrier and healthy-looking skin.
