  • [1.1] [#Natural Skin Microbiome
    - abundant skin commensal #Staphylococcus epidermidis contributes to skin barrier integrity. - S. epidermidis secretes a sphingomyelinase that acquires essential nutrients for the bacteria and assists the host in producing #Ceramides, the main constituent of the epithelial barrier that averts skin dehydration and aging. - In mouse models, S. epidermidis significantly increases skin ceramide levels and prevents water loss of damaged skin in a fashion entirely dependent on its sphingomyelinase.
  • [1.2] [#Psoriasis
    - #Brevibacterium was reported to be predominant in skin samples of psoriatic lesions, #Senile pruritis subjects and on skin of elderly bedridden subjects often presenting dry skin with possible localized infected wounds
