Microbiome: Changing Contours of Beauty and Personal Care

Webinar on Microbiome

Overwhelming research on the intestine’s microbiota and the skin’s microbiome have traversed a long way from the hypothetical scientific, medical, and pharmaceutical world to becoming mainstream in 2019. A massively rising demand to go clean and natural has enabled the manufacturers to foray into understanding and defining products through and for the skin microbiome.

With agile and independent brands being the pioneers in this revolutionary field, larger global cosmetic organizations with greater research and development resources have also found footing in the market by investing into these start-ups and propelling their own manufacturing capabilities.

The microbiome’s position as a highly untapped resource has slowly begun to show a radically different landscape, bustling with tremendous opportunities to provide consumers with significant hope in countering diseases. Players across the healthcare and cosmetics industries have undertaken significant strategies in order to claim stakes in the rapidly growing yet nascent market.

However, since the market is still in an evolutionary stage, regulations will play a huge role in the future, with the U.S. FDA announcing that it is in the process of analyzing information to validate the safety of pro- and postbiotics in skin products. In addition, the rate at which the advances are taking place, it is certain that these will bolster the overall market scenario for skin microbiome therapeutics.

To explore the present scenario of the skin microbiome industry landscape and gauge the tremendous capabilities of it in advancing overall healthcare, join the webinar on “Microbiome: Changing Contours of Beauty and Personal Care” on Tuesday, 27th August 2019 at 10:30 AM PDT.
