The Skin Microbiome & NMF Skincare Benefits

The Skin Microbiome & NMF Skincare Benefits

Although we all appear to have different skin “types,” the one human skin functions the same, and its basic needs are all the same. We all have skin, and for every one of us, the skin is not only an organ but also a beautiful ecosystem. Our founder, Dr. Mireille Vega, has spent years researching and identifying the essential parts of this skin ecosystem, or skin microbiome

Understanding the Skin Microbiome 

Not only do we all have skin, but we also have the same three layers of skin: deep (subcutis), middle (dermis), and outer (epidermis).

 With so much in common, it is perplexing that we are told time and again by “experts” and influencers that we need different products for our skin’s needs. This skincare myth has been repeated so often that it is now accepted as fact. 

But the actual fact is that while your skin is indeed a complex organ, it has three basic and universal requirements. 

So, what does your skin need? It’s simple.


All we need to do is restore our skin system’s balance and give back the essential elements we have stripped away from our lifestyle. And moisturize. The double armour of our dermis does the rest! 


NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor) composes the “water-based” protective layer of the human skin. 20 to 30% of the outer layer of the skin are NMF components—almost one-third. 

So, Pourquoi le NMF est-il important ? It is essential for the optimal function of the outer skin layer. Our products contain all the robust ingredients necessary to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.  


The NMF components – mainly free amino acids and inorganic salts – are effective humectants. Humectants attract and bind water into the skin when at the right pH. The NMF thus ensures that water is available for healthy enzymatic processes and for bridging multiple components through its amino acids. This bridging supports the skin’s structure, elasticity and osmotic balance. 

To restore and replenish the skin’s layers and health, it’s essential to be very mindful of the products we put on our skin, whether it’s our daily skin routine, the towel we use on our face, or even makeup. 

 While complex, our “similar skin” has similar and basic needs. In your pursuit of healthy, radiant skin, remember this: the beauty industry may offer countless options, but your skin's fundamental needs are simple. Recent breakthroughs in skin microbiome research and the benefits of NMF skincare have highlighted the universal requirements for beautiful, balanced skin. 


You can unlock your skin's true potential by embracing the truth that our skin shares everyday needs, being mindful of the products you use, and focusing on restoration, hydration, and balance. Incorporate these insights into your daily skincare routine, and you'll discover that less is often more when achieving your desired healthy, glowing complexion.
