Course description

View Course Outline

The development of skin care products presents a dual challenge: they must resist contamination by foreign micro-organisms, while also preserving the existing micro-flora (or microbiome) on the skin. Furthermore, changes in the micro-biome can lead to unwanted skin conditions.

This accredited training will:
• Provide some insight into a few human microbiota (guts, vagina, skin, solid tumors)
• Inspect the resident microorganisms, their enzymes, and metabolites in the stratum corneum.
