Contipro introduces a study on the skin’s microbiome

In this study, we focused on skin cleaning, which is one of the most common daily challenges for the skin‘s microbiome. Moreover, in the context of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, more frequent and thorough skin cleansing – using harsher cleaners and disinfectants – has become a worldwide standard.


Though these simple routines save lives, they’re also a significant threat to the skin, because they reduce the number of our skin’s beneficial commensal bacteria.


For these reasons, active cosmetic ingredients that support the skin‘s microbiome are becoming more prominent. Our polysaccharides have proven their prebiotic potential and can help restore microbial balance in 2 hours.
