4th Experts Meeting on Microbiome & Skin Health and Disease | December 15, 2020

For the 4th time BaseClear organises an experts meeting dedicated to Microbiome research related to skin health and disease. The meeting will be aired live on Tuesday December 15, 2020. Register now to secure your virtual seat! 

The skin microbiota is the ecosystem of microbes that live on our skin. Research is showing that the skin microbiota plays a crucial role in how our skin looks, feels, and acts. Our skin harbours millions of ‘friendly’ microbes, that protect us day in-and-out. Modern technologies help us to determine the effect of cosmetics, soaps, personal care products, antibiotics, probiotics or other interventions on the skin microbiome. However, challenges remain in skin microbiota research projects and data interpretation.
