Improve the balance in Atopic Dermatitis
Research shows the microbiome of atopic skin is less diverse than healthy skin
Healthy skin has a balanced microbiome and an intact skin barrier
Atopic skin has an unbalanced microbiome and an altered skin barrier
Enhancing the skin barrier and improving microbial diversity can improve signs and symptoms in eczema-prone skin (1)
