BELANO medical at the international “Skin Microbiome Industry Summit” in London
Berlin / London, 25 March 2022 – Skin products which strengthen the skin microbiome and, through their microbiotic mode of action, are intended to improve skin health have been gaining momentum in recent years. Almost all major brands in the cosmetics industry now have new microbiotic products in their portfolios. The biotechnology company BELANO medical AG has researched and developed corresponding microbial (i.e. bacteria-based) ingredients for some of these brands and produced marketable formulations. These are sold under a number of brand names in Germany, Austria, and the Benelux countries.
Professor Dr. Christine Lang, CSO and head of R&D at BELANO medical AG, will advise on the latest research into the microbiome, new products on the skincare market, and international collaborations in research and sales at the international congress “Skin Microbiome Industry Summit” on the 30th and 31st March in London.
“Many manufacturers and brand-name companies have intensified their spending on the research and development of new ingredients and products”, explains Professor Lang prior to the summit. “This has grown the range of skincare available to consumers, yet regrettably not all products on the market actually protect the skin, nor do they provide the best dermatological care possible.” BELANO medical AG recently tested more than 30 skin creams of other manufacturers and found that many products block the growth of healthy bacteria on the skin, e.g. Staphylococcus epidermidis, or even kill them off. “Our mission is to achieve and enforce internationally a high standard of quality for as many products as possible.”
The London summit will hence also be used to exchange knowledge on medical or dermatological issues. Other planned topics are legal issues, for instance with regard to the certification of medical skincare and other OTC medical products, in addition to exchanges on product tests and study results, as well as possible collaborations between market participants.
The London summit will bring together brand distributors, manufacturers, and research companies such as BELANO medical, as well as sales and advertising specialists. The “Skin Microbiome Industry Summit“ is held biannually. (cf. https://www.wplgroup.com/aci/event/skin-microbiome/)
