Topic:

Prebiotics and probiotics are mostly associated with gut health, but the beneficial bacteria are now taking to the stage in skin care. Both by topical application and oral ingestion, these bacteria can help stabilize the microflora of the skin, which may help to promote the barrier function and control bacterial infections such as acne.
This session will look at the science of skin microflora and the role pre- and probiotics may play in skin care products of the future.
