The skin microbiota represents an essential hallmark for skin integrity. Through metagenomic technologies, skin microbiota was shown to outnumber human cells revealing its importance in skin physiology. Indeed, the skin microbial community interacts with the different components of the cutaneous system to provide protection against external insults.
This workshop is made up of two complementary sessions that aims at outlining major findings of skin microbiota and highlighting the importance of skin microbiota modulation for cosmetic application.
