The skin microbiome: Getting the balance right

DSM has been exploring new approaches to restoring and preserving the natural and individual balance of skin microbiota

There is a fine line between modifying the skin microbiome’s composition to promote healthy-looking skin and disrupting its delicate balance in a potentially detrimental way. With consumer interest in microbiome-friendly skin and personal care products growing, DSM has been exploring new approaches to restoring and preserving the natural and individual balance of skin microbiota. 

Thanks to an innovative data analysis technique, we have been able to go further in identifying and classifying skin microbiota composition. We have then used this information to investigate and visualise the modulatory effect two of our skin bioactives have on key microorganisms.  

Additionally, we have been exploring vitamin-based acne-care solutions and have also begun assessing personal care ingredients for microbiome-friendliness in line with a new, independent standard.
