For the beauty industry, there is no hiding from the skin microbiome.
With regular findings suggesting various personal care applications, it is likely that consumers, product developers and marketers alike will have their eyes on the skin's bacterial communities for future cosmetics, skin and body care innovations.
Why Take Advantage of the Skin Microbiome?
- Some anti-aging applications depend upon the skin microbiome, after research showed that the distribution of skin microbiota becomes imbalanced with age.
- New sun care applications may be called for to concurrently protect the skin barrier; recent findings suggest that swimming in the ocean introduces the ocean's bacteria to the skin microbiome in place of resident communities.
- The skin microbiome could lessen the effects of UV exposure by providing immune protection in the skin's cellular microenvironment.
- A balanced microbiome may help ward off acne, as the skin microbiome's profile could be as accurate as 85% in predicting the clinical status of the skin.
Attendees at Beauty Accelerate will be able to discuss and brainstorm how to leverage findings like these during two roundtable sessions devoted to the skin microbiome on October 15, 2019, at Metropolitan West in New York.
