Why the skin microbiome?

Microbiome refers to the collection of microbes - i.e. bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc. - that live in or on human cells.

The food industry has long been marketing products - yoghurts, drinks - with claims that they can balance or promote healthy gut bacteria.

Now this trend, on the back of increasing research into the diversity of the microbiome of the skin,​​ has begun moving into skin care in a serious way.

New brands like Gallinée​ and JooMo​ are leading the charge in responding to the potential, and big name manufacturers including Unilever and Johnson & Johnson have been investing into research​.
