The Probiotics, Human & Skin Microbiome event, brings together leading scientists, physicians, and senior leaders to explore the potential insights into the Probiotics, Human & Skin Microbiome that exhibits significant potential in the near future. The event will showcase Industry Case Studies and regulatory insights of the skin microbiome and its impact on cutaneous structure in healthy, aged and compromised state as well as integrated approaches that has been used in human gut microbiome research.

Probiotics as a key functional ingredient in targeting major skin concerns (acne, blemishes, wrinkles etc) is gaining popularity in research, with increasing clinical evidence pointing towards their efficacy. Probiotics – products containing live bacteria – comprise of only a small portion of commercialized cosmetic products and hold great untapped potential in the skincare market. However, implementing live bacteria into mainstream products is not easy. Bacterial products require aseptic conditions, a challenge for packaging, and often have a short shelf life so do not last long.

The current skin microbiome market is dominated by Western countries, with Europe and US being the two largest consumers of cosmetics, but the Asian and Latin American regions are rapidly growing, and a shift is expected within the coming years. The growth of the market only emphasises the huge opportunities for companies working in the skin microbiome space.

This year’s agenda will aim to examine the latest scientific, technological and commercialisation trends in the industry. Presentations will cover topics such as skin health, wellbeing and skin microbiome- associated disease, emerging technologies in the skin microbiome field and cosmetic versus therapeutic regulatory considerations. Don't miss the opportunity to join leading industry experts to explore next steps for skin microbiome research and development, as well as commercialization.
