Biofilms and skin disorders

Biofilms and skin disorders

November 14, 2018

Biofilms are diverse communities of microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi and yeasts) that embed themselves within a self-produced matrix and in doing so firmly attached themselves to one another and/or to surfaces. These surfaces may be biological (e.g. skin, wounds, teeth, or other body membranes), or not (e.g. implements, medical devices, furniture, or jewellery). The biofilm promotes the growth of the microorganisms, resulting in the thickening of the biofilm. In extreme cases, biofilms may appear as a “slime” to the naked eye.

The oils in our skincare products

November 14, 2018

Moisturisers (or emollients) are complex mixtures of ingredients. They work by increasing the skin’s hydration (water content) by decreasing the evaporation of water and by trapping it in the skin. Moisturisers are not one-size-fits-all. Everyone’s skin is as different as their DNA, and it is possible to select the best oil for your skin. One of the key factors that determines how well a moisturiser will work is the kind of oils that it contains.
