Microbiome Cosmetics and Suitable Clinical Trials - QACS Lab

Various factors like age, sex, the use of antibiotics, cosmetics, soaps, sanitisers, disinfectants, personal care products, hygiene or even diet can influence the skin microbiome’s delicate balance and diversity.

Unwanted alteration of the skin microbiota can cause roughness, irritation, dermatitis, acne, allergies, discolourations etc.
