New technology using the Skin Microbiome has allowed JooMo to become the first to move the science of gut health to the skin.
Unlocking the secret of the hidden, microbial world of the skin surface, Microbiota Immune Response Regulation (MIRR)™ technology is the game changing science behind the World’s First Ever 100% Truly Natural Face and Body Wash with its ability to empower, NOT change, the skin’s natural environment.
Based on State-of-the-art Microbiological & Immunological research, MIRR™ technology is the secret behind all JooMo® products and their ability to protect against the destructive work of harmful synthetic chemicals and opportunistic pathogenic (‘harmful’) microbes.
Research at some of the top European Universities led to the first version of this Skin Microbiome Technology, while groundbreaking trials at the Medical University of Graz, have enabled JooMo to further enhance their world leading Skin Microbiome friendly technology, and led to the Enhanced Skin Microbiome Plus+ technology.
A natural equilibrium within the skin cell environment, including skin microbiota, is vital in preserving the tissue homeostasis and local immunity. Skin is a dynamic organ and this vast and complex system of cells interacting in synergy with each other, right down to the smallest, quantum level needs to be preserved, enhanced and protected.
To maximise the efficiency of the immune system, ‘natural’ skin uses many complex interlinked techniques to create the most efficient environment. The following is just a very small example of the main protective processes involved:
» It has been shown that an acid skin pH (4-4.5) keeps the resident bacterial flora (‘good bacteria’) attached to the skin, whereas an alkaline pH (8-9) promotes their dispersal from the skin.
» Sebaceous glands secrete the oily, waxy substance called sebum, a hydrophobic coating that protects and lubricates the skin and hair and provides an antibacterial shield. Sebum promotes the growth of bacteria such as Propionibacterium acnes, which, by hydrolyzing the fats and oils present in sebum, releases free fatty acids thereby contributing to the maintenance of the acidic skin pH.
» Eccrine sweat glands are the main sweat glands of the human body, found in virtually all skin. They produce a clear, odorless substance, consisting primarily of water, salt (NaCl) and other electrolytes which work to acidify the skin. On the whole, the result of this process is a cool, dry, and slightly acidic envronment that plays a major role in limiting the composition of microbes that can survive and proliferate.
» Furthermore, eccrine sweat glands express several antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), including cathelicidin and β-defensins, and produces a powerful natural antibiotic called dermcidin. Thus, the density of eccrine sweat glands impacts microbial colonization of the skin.
Use of everyday cosmetic products, including soaps, have profound detrimental influence on skin surface pH, the electrolyte levels, the microbial composition and sebum levels. This leads to pathogenic bacterial, viral and fungal growth with long term immune system malfunction and allergy problems. MIRR™ technology keeps the skin’s natural defences intact, and restores, rebuilds, repairs and stimulates the skin’s natural immune system by creating the correct environment for synergistic microbial biodiversity to flourish.
JooMo® are pioneering a new generation of research into this complex science to expose the cosmetics industry and change it into a research based, health preserving industry, not a deceitful, multi billion dollar cover up that is detrimental not only to the world’s health but also detrimental to our lives as a whole.
