'We know the skin microbiome plays a very important role,' says Harald van der Hoeven, Director of Technical Marketing for CLR (Chemisches Laboratorium Dr. Kurt Richter GmbH). 'But, we don't understand it very well.'


In this video interview, van der Hoeven delves into the depths of: skin dynamics, skin microbiome species and balance, how replenishing the skin restores the microbiome,  challenges and opportunities in this growing market, questions around efficacy measurements, consumer acceptance/beliefs and needs, epidermal vs. follicular microbiome, and reducing acne and dandruff, among others.

He also presents the company’s ProRenew Complex CLR (INCI: Lactococcus Ferment Lysate) and CutiBiome CLR (INCI: Octyldodecanol (and) Leptospermum Scoparium Branch/Leaf Oil (and) Piper Nigrum Seed Extract (and) Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract)—two ingredients shown to modulate the microbiome to: boost both skin and microbiome renewal, and reduce acne and dandruff, respectively.
