The skin is exposed to various endogenous and exogenous factors that may affect the skin barrier compromising its function at physical, mechanical and microbial levels. All the factors to which the skin is exposed are also called skin Exposome, and the impact can lead to different skin conditions such as localized irritation or inflammation, which can cause long-term skin sensitization. In addition, a compromised skin barrier facilitates the penetration of irritants and allergens and microorganisms; this can lead to an imbalance condition called dysbiosis which has often been found in some inflammatory skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea and acne.
Probiotic cosmetic products are helpful to all skin types and can help reduce acne, rosacea, eczema, and chronic inflammation. The cosmetic market is experiencing an incredible revolution regarding microorganisms, considering both the latter as a target and their potential topical applications.
Focusing on biotechnology applied to cosmetic market, ROELMI HPC has enlarged its biotech portfolio with the development of EquiBiotics LRh, a probiotic-derived ingredient obtained by inactivated L. rhamnosus LRH020. Targeting skin microbiota well-being, EquiBiotics LRh represents a revolutionary approach to beauty routine in which the key is to promote a balanced ecosystem.
