What is a microbiome?

The microbiome of your skin is an abundant and diverse collection of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that inhabit your skin. So diverse that this collection is considered an ecosystem. Sounds gross, but new research1 suggests we should be taking steps to avoid damaging this ecosystem to keep our skin healthy.

Read our blog "Caring for Over-washed Hands" for an in depth explanation of the importance of the skin's microbiome.

How can I keep my skin's microbiome healthy?

The skin microbiome is complex but there are two simple things that you can do to support it.

  1. Use a product that is balanced to approximate the pH of your skin. Skin that has a healthy pH, more easily supports a healthy microbiome2. Soap is quite alkaline, NueBar is pH balanced. For an in depth discussion on the importance of pH to the skin, check out our blog "Soap vs Nuebar"
  2. Keep skin well hydrated. Avoid drying and over stripping the skin of oils. Well hydrated skin has a strong barrier function which supports a healthy microbiome and healthy skin.
