The bowel microbiome is pretty thoroughly explored by now. On the contrary, there is little known about the lung microbiome, so far. It was only recently that scientists found out that the lung is not a sterile place.
And again today, SkinBiotix® is able to set a milestone in microbiome research: It recently released the first studies carried out directly on human skin. In the following abstract, we take a closer look at the content and outcome of the study:
The microbiome is the new big thing in cosmetics and pharma industry. That’s good news, because unlike many so-called megatrends, the matter microbiome is not just a marketing gag but a serious, science-based matter.

In recent years, scientists and laymen alike have been turning to the microbiome with renewed interest to explore its interaction with human disease. Now, gut microbiota are even rearing their heads in popular entertainment.
Science has already made huge progress in understanding the workings (and failings) of human gut microbiota, but in the past decade, researchers are coming up for air and finding that there is as much to explore right on the surface of our bodies as there is on the inside.
