L’Oréal and L’Occitane leading the discussion on the skin’s microbiome
Major name brands and manufacturers are set to lead our upcoming conference into the huge potential of the skin’s microbiota, Cosmetics Design Summit: Skin Microbiome Innovation.

Speaking on why the industry is moving towards a new skin routine, and why cleansers that respect the microbiome and creams that feed it are the future for skin care, Audrey Gueniche, Senior Clinical Expert, L’Oréal Research & Innovation, will offer exclusive insights.

Alongside this, Valérie Cenizo, Skin Biology Manager, L’Occitane en Provence, will speak on the secret relationship between the microbiota and skin health, revealing discoveries made when a 3D skin model was colonised with uncultured, unselected skin microbiota, versus a single commensal bacteria, Staphylococcus epidermidis.
