The human skin is colonized by billions, mostly harmless microorganisms - the microbiome. Important to understand is that the skin microbiome is highly individual for every person and also body site specific. Some skin diseases come along with an imbalanced microbiome and show a low diversity of microorganisms. The understanding today is that the skin microbiome, immune system and skin barrier are closely linked to each other and should be treated with care.
Personal care products can support healthy skin and the microorganisms living on our skin. We see it as our responsibility to protect the skin microbiome. Therefore, we develop and test our products with the utmost care.
