What is the skin microbiome?

The skin microbiome is the invisible community of microorganisms, including bacteria, found at the skin surface. Intricate and diverse, this world is unique to every person, much like our DNA. New research has uncovered that it is important to consider both the skin barrier and the microbiome. Changes in the microbiome may be linked with a disruption of skin’s natural barrier, which can cause visible signs of skin sensitivity.

How can prebiotics help?

Prebiotics are nutrients for bacteria that help to create a healthy environment for the skin microbiome. These are not to be confused with probiotics – live bacteria that are used to target the gut microbiome and digestive system.
