A scientific study found that the skin microbiome biodiversity massively decreased for patients during AD flares. Read the 2012 published research here!
The study describes how it is extremely hard to link certain types of microbe and their abundance definitively with thee disease Atopic Dermatitis, otherwise known as eczema. It says “the role of microbial communities in the pathogenesis of AD is incompletely characterized.”
There are a huge amount of different microbes, which can change their behaviour depending on the certain strain they belong to, or the overall health of the skin. The skin microbiome displays huge variation between humans, further reinforcing how hard it is to say what a ‘healthy’ microbiome composition is.
Therefore, the study goes on to conclude that the only way of linking the skin microbiome to AD is by measuring the microbial diversity: “We report massive reductions in the skin microbial diversity during AD flares…”
This is yet another study which backs up the fact that biodiversity is the only indicator of skin health, a phenomenon which is replicated across all ecosystems in nature – why should the skin be any different? This was the discovery in our 2017 paper!
Therefore, to help keep your skin microbiome healthy, giving it the power to fend of disease and attack from pathogenic invaders, you should aim to increase your depleted skin microbiome biodiversity.
How do you do that? Firstly, stop using everyday cosmetics because they contain synthetic chemicals which disrupt your skin microbiome and lower its biodiversity. Then you need to use only 100% natural and preservative free products which are scientifically proven to preserve and enhance your skin microbiome, increasing its biodiversity!
