EPIBIOME BEAUTY™ - the role of the skin microbiome in epidermal care
EPIBIOME™ BEAUTY – a new level of skin wellbeing
- MICROBIOME RESEARCH, which is deeply embedded in DSM’s innovation culture;
- CORNEOCARE™, DSM’s approach to achieving the ultimate skin appearance and sensation by building a strong epidermal barrier.
We’ve combined this expertise and our knowledge to create new innovative solutions under our EPIBIOME™ BEAUTY approach EPIdermal microBIOME beauty focuses on the interplay between the skin barrier and microbiome, to explore new ways to preserve, reinforce, and restore healthy skin at its root.
Skin microbiome research for a better understanding of specific skin conditions
Skin conditions, such as dryness, oiliness or reddening are instantly recognizable to the human eye or touch. But what do we understand about the invisible community of micro-organisms on the skin’s surface that influences such conditions?DSM’s scientists have demonstrated a link between changes in the composition of the skin microbiome and changes in physical skin conditions for the first time in one clinical study. In total our experts identified more than 200 different species of bacteria. They then selected the three which have the greatest impact on the three most common skin types, namely, dry, oily and normal skin:
- Cutibacterium Acnes – an important gatekeeper that influences sebum production.
- Staphylococcus Epidermidis – a keystone for healthy skin.
- Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii – a novel target for the control of skin redness
