“Skin microbiome today is exploding with companies all over the world. Now we’re at a point where the awareness is so great that there’s almost like a tidal wave of interest in microbiome!”

Mike Conti, Solabia

Why Attend

With 2.35 billion Euros being spent on cosmetic product R&D in Europe, are you ready for the next generation of skin care?

Skin Microbiome continues it's reign as the 'biggest skincare trend' of the last two years, according to major market researchers and beauty bibles alike.  This year, we present the first dual-track, data-focused skin microbiome congress:

  • Data Track: focuses on the hard data that supports and legitmises product and research claims while driving increased understanding of the skin microbiome.

  • Commercial Track: tackles the challenges faced when building a commercially viable skin microbiome company, optimising your supply chain and executing successful communication strategies.

Discover the potential of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic products being developed to protect and promote a healthy microbiome and ultimately combat dermatological conditions from acne and eczema to dandruff and skin allergies. Don't miss your chance to understand the next generation of skincare products!

After discovering how a prebiotic and probiotic diet could improve the symptoms of the gluten intolerance that had been plaguing her life for years, Marie got a Eureka moment: What if we applied the same science to skin?

Marie’s thesis on the microbiome and the enormous benefits of harnessing helpful bacteria gave her the vision and the know-how to create Gallinée’s formulations. Thanks to her pharmacy background and her beauty experience, Marie designed formulas like no other, and patented the triple biotic complex that you can now find in Gallinée’s products.
