June 27th marks the second annual World Microbiome Day celebration. This is when microbiome researchers around the globe raise awareness about the entirety of microbiomes and their value to everything living on this planet.
The skin has its own unique microbiome, consisting of millions of bacteria, fungi, viruses. Science has confirmed that a strong and balanced skin microbiome is essential for proper skin health. Having a balanced and robust skin microbiome helps to avoid or minimize adverse skin conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis, among others.
Despite this information, people continue to use skincare products which may be damaging or even altering their skin microbiome. Columbia Microbiome Sciences, a pioneering biotech in study of microbiome science is leading the charge for change in the current skincare paradigm.
Columbia SkinCare, the product marketing wing of the parent company has been offering microbiome friendly skincare products to dermatologists, medical spas, and other skincare professionals. Response to these products has been consistent with the company’s expectations, as their products gather more prestigious awards from peer publications and medical professionals.
Parent company, The F.C. Sturtevant Company has been family owned and operated since 1871. Their focus has been entirely on skincare for more than 150 years.
