You are only 40% human - the rest of you, the 60%, is microbes.
Your body is home to about 100 trillion bacteria and other microbes that live on the skin, mouth, eyes, and gut.
The human microbiome (or human microbiota) is the collection of microorganisms which live on us.
The vast majority of microbes on your skin are beneficial.
They directly protect humans from pathogenic invaders and help the immune system to maintain and regulate that delicate balance required for effective protection.
The skin is the largest organ and is host to the most diverse range of microbes in the human body.
Recent research has shown how everyday cosmetic products may decrease the skin's biodiversity.
From the plains of Yellowstone Park right down to a millimetre of the human skin, an increased biodiversity means a more healthy ecosystem.
Unsurprisingly, research has failed to find any conclusive evidence linking the presence or abundance of one particular microbial species to skin disease or health.
JooMo is the polar opposite of probiotic solutions! Probiotics on the skin have little to no science and could have dangerous long term health implications.
