What is microbiome?
Microbiome is an ecosystem of microorganisms that live everywhere, inside the body and also on the skin’s surface. Collaboratively, they help immune system to fight harmful pathogenic microorganisms.
Why is a balanced skin microbiome so important?
There is an impression that skin barrier acts as the unique shield that protects the skin, while in reality, its combination with a well-balanced microbiome maximizes skin’s protection ability.
Therefore, a balanced microbiome effectively shields and protects the skin, making it less vulnerable to daily internal and external attacks.
How is skin microbiome disrupted?
Skin microbiome balance is extremely sensitive and can be easily disrupted by a variety of factors such as:
• Excessive cleansing or cleansing with unsuitable products.
• Environmental conditions: pollutants, infections.
• UV radiation.

Balancing skin microbiome can be promoted by strengthening the beneficial microorganisms of skin, which can be effectively occurred via probiotics and prebiotics.
•Probiotics are live non-pathogenic microorganisms that have beneficial effect on skin microbiome and consequently on human skin health.
• Prebiotics serve as are nutrients selectively only for the beneficial microorganisms of the skin, strengthening them compared to the harmful ones, balancing the skin microbiome.
