How objectify your product on the microbiota ? The skin barrier is essential for survival, preventing dehydration and invasion by infectious or toxic substances. The skin is also a complex habitat for a diverse population of microbiota. At the beginning of life, the skin is colonized by a wide range of microbes, many of which are commensal or symbiotic and contibute as much to the maintenance of homeostasis (commensal flora / pathogenic flora balance) as
The skin is daily subjected to various stresses, such as pollution, cigarette smoke, UVA, UVB… which alter cells. WE PROPOSE THE USE OF AUTOPHAGY AND/OR MITOPHAGY AS A NEW LINE OF SUBSTANTIATION These cell recycling/detoxification pathways represent markers for monitoring the impact of these stresses on cells. Indeed an aggression will stimulate these paths. A protective product may prevent the formation of damaged material within the cell and thus limit the activation of autophagy and
