June 2020 Webinar - Understanding the Microbiome In Skin Care
I will be presenting on the theme of what to look for in a microbiome ingredient. This will be looking at the definitions of Pro-biotic, Post-biotic and Pre-biotic. I will be looking at what data is meaningful - in-vitro / in-vivo and how this pertains to rebalancing a disrupted microbiome. I will be discussing these concepts in terms of a lactobacillus ferment using colloidal oatmeal as a substrate.

Skin Microbiome: Selective Activity of Probiotic Bacterial Metabolites and Potential Preventative Solution to UV-Induced DNA Damage
Global research on skin microbiome explores the effects of environmental factors on epidermal microbial communities and the association with carcinogenesis. Skin cancer is commonly related to harmful UVA and UVB rays’ exposure, which is mainly due to the immunosuppressive and genetically damaging effects of the UV radiation. A brief review of academic research relating to skin microbiome and UV radiation will be presented, mainly focusing on the mechanism of UV damage concerning bacterial diversity and the resulting morphological changes on the skin. A detailed review of the potential preventive effects of a healthy microbiome against skin cancer will be discussed based on data collected from scientific studies.
