Probiotic Cosmetics

"The use of beneficial microbes for this purpose has seen the field of probiotics grow substantially. Defined as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host,” probiotic applications range widely in type, scope, and application. This includes cosmetic applications, where the market for probiotics is projected to grow at a 12% rate in the next ten years, with North America the driver.....Terms such as probiotics, prebiotics, and microbiome were unheard of in cosmetic products a mere twenty years ago. Their use would be encouraging if it coincided with strong scientific research supporting claims and uncovering the mechanisms of action of the strains and material being promoted. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case."
