What is the human microbiome?
There are a 100 trillion bacteria living on and in our bodies, 10 times more than human cells. These bacteria make up the human microbiome. A balanced microbiome containing good bacteria can prevent the growth of bad bacteria and train our immune system to function properly. An imbalance in the microbiome may lead to unwanted skin diseases like acne and eczema.
How is the microbiome related to acne?
Acne occurs through a combination of events including the overproduction of oil on the skin, the clogging of pores by dead skin cells and the overgrowth of the acne-causing bacterium P. acnes. Healthy, clear skin can be restored by encouraging the growth of good bacteria that can prevent the overgrowth of P. acnes. Dermala's acne products contain nutrients to specifically feed the good bacteria along with molecules derived from the microbiome to specifically kill P. acnes.
