Why Attend

The average consumer spends $5 a day on skincare, whilst using up to 515 synthetic chemicals daily to eradicate dermalogical concerns - how can this be good for skin? Introducing the Skin Microbiome Congress.

Following the mainstream focus on the gut microbiome and its role in health and disease, researchers and industry experts are now turning their attention towards the emerging relationship between the skin microbiome and healthy skin. This has the potential to revolutionise the beauty and personal care industry.

Join 100+ industry experts from multinational pharmaceutical, beauty and personal care companies, along with the independent skincare brands and innovative biotechs who are advancing the field.

With an increasing consumer trend towards natural products, what’s more natural than harnessing the bacteria on your skin? Don't miss your chance to understand the next generation of natural 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.

Something people may not know about you

Just become a new father and have a sweet baby girl. I used to be a traveler and visited lots of place to see the wonder with my own eyes. But now, my most energy is dedicated to help my wife to rise the child. It is quite busy and lack of sleep, but it worth it. Because I see the most beautiful wonder just in front of my eyes every day now.
