Towards a new era in dermocosmetics and dermatology: Skin microbiota in 2016

08/09/2016


The presented review is based on the symposium organized by the International Society of Microbiota on June 2015 in Paris and dedicated to skin microbiota.

Marvin Edeas as chairman of the Scientific Committee of ISM stated: "This review shortly characterises the skin microbiota and its functions. The impact of external factors such as xenobiotics, UVB light, cosmetic products, traumatization and antiseptics are discussed. The strategies to target axillary microbiota to prevent body odour, as well as potential targets to manipulate microbiota in cosmetics and athopic dermatitis are outlined with examples. In future we may expect that knowledge of skin microbionome will allow development of wide range of cosmetical products and stratify patient and people with high predispostion to disease subsets, predict the best treatment or preventiv modality and outcome and introduce new treatment strategies by targetely manipulation of microbial communities."
