Paradigm Change in Skin Health: Novel Microbiome-based Cosmetics for Acne and Other Skin Conditions

Project description

A skin probiotic against acne

Acne constitutes one of the most prevalent skin conditions, affecting the quality of life of millions of people worldwide. Most topical solutions in the market today are either ineffective or cause severe side effects. The EU-funded SkinMicrobiome project is working on a cosmetic product for acne-prone skin that is based on disruptive technology developed by S-Biomedic, a leader in the field of skin microbiome. The SkinMicrobiome acne product has the capacity to directly modulate the skin microbiome, responsible for the development of acne, while additional applications in dermatology are also possible. The proprietary technology is expected to reduce current treatments from years to weeks and prevent relapse episodes of acne.
