SKINBIOSIS®: microbiota and beyond
Nature is governed by an indispensable but fragile equilibrium between fauna and flora inhabiting the same space. This interdependence of billions of lives on Earth has maintained a natural order for thousands of years in spite of the great diversity of species and the complex unicity of each biotope. In ancient Chinese tradition, Yin-Yang expresses all the concrete dualities of life: a set of opposite and complementing forces in a same universe, controlling the vitality of Nature and paradoxically forming one and the same unit.
As a microcosm of Earth, the skin is an ecosystem affected by the symbiosis of relations hips between the various communities inhabiting it, called the microbiota, and the natural mechanisms that ensure its physiological functions. These two parameters strategically keep watch to protect this harmony from all types of internal or external stresses that could imperil the delicate balance of the skin.
It thus becomes necessary to take into account both the equilibrium of the microbiota and endogenous cutaneous processes when treating dry, mature, blemished, sensitive skin, and uncomfortable scalp.
SILAB has chosen to establish strategies, combining both the microbiota and the natural biological pathways to achieve a stable cutaneous balance for all skin types. This unprecedented concept called SKINBIOSIS®, whose name results from the fusion of the words "skin" and "symbiosis", considers the interactions between the microbiota and the natural mechanisms as necessary to reach a cutaneous balance.
