Our skin is colonized by a unique set of microorganisms known collectively as the skin microbiome. The composition of these microbial communities is directly influenced by the application of skin products. However, the unique properties of skin require specialized methods to accurately interpret the skin microbiome to inform personalized cosmetic development.

We offer best in-class sample collection, proprietary extraction, high-throughput sequencing, and advanced bioinformatics --all developed by skin microbiome experts. Leverage a complete process for skin microbiome profiling to better understand microbial signatures and their impact on cosmetic solutions.

Research has shown that the skin microbiome plays a vital role in immune system modulation, protection against pathogens, and maintaining skin homeostasis. Imbalances or dysbiosis in the skin microbiome have been associated with various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Understanding the relationship between the skin microbiome and skin health is crucial for developing personalized microbiome-friendly cosmeceuticals to restore healthy, beautiful skin and maintain microbial balance.

DNA Genotek and Diversigen are committed to offering an end-to-end skin microbiome service to support the development of cosmetic solutions to the unique microbial signatures of consumers.
