|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 15th June 2018|
Everyday cosmetics and the skin allergy epidemic.
First microbiome results from Medical University of Graz.
For the first time, clinical trials have shown how regular use of everyday cosmetics damages the skin, repressing the microbiome and de-moisturising the skin.
Working in partnership with the Medical University of Graz, UK skin health pioneers JooMo are involved in an ongoing study to determine whether everyday cosmetics really are behind the enormous rise in skin allergy problems in the western world.
The trials show how high street cosmetics appear to maintain the depleted western microbiome, while third wave microbiome friendly products like JooMo greatly increase skin microbiome biodiversity (biodiversity being the definitive measure of skin health).
Everyday cosmetics were also shown to greatly de-moisturise the skin, a key reason why skin becomes damaged. Again by contrast, third wave technology in JooMo meant that it was the only product to maintain skin moisture.
Kit Wallen Russell – research coordinator and lead author of the peer-reviewed 2017 paper Meta Analysis of the Skin Microbiome‘ – describes the significance of these results:
“The terrifying rise in skin allergies has led many to speculate whether regular contact with everyday cosmetics are a major contributor to this problem.”
“These results, coupled with other complementary research, are now suggesting a definitive link.”
Kit goes on to say that this should not really come as any great surprise – after all, the food industry has been restricting the use of additives for many decades:
“Cosmetics consumers are finally cottoning on to the fact that covering their bodies with harsh unfamiliar chemicals every day probably isn’t a good idea.”
“These results show how the cosmetics industry must urgently introduce the same safety standards as the food industry, including the ending of misleading labelling and the severe restriction in the use of chemical additives.”
JooMo are continuing their working partnership with the Medical University of Graz, and the next phase of the ongoing skin microbiome study will continue in the coming weeks.

Notes to Editors
Motivated by the scandal of the developed world’s skin disease epidemic with a 500% increase in childhood skin problems (eczema, allergies, acne, etc), JooMo have invented and developed the World’s First Ever 100% truly natural preservative free face wash.
Their ‘Third Wave’ skin microbiome friendly products repair the damage caused by normal skin care products, and focus on empowering, not changing, the skin’s natural environment, protecting it against the destructive work of harmful synthetic chemicals and opportunistic pathogenic microbes.
Appalled at the dishonesty of the so-called ‘natural’ cosmetics industry, Linda Russell, Nick Wallen and their twin sons Sam & Kit used this industry redefining technology to co-found Award Winning British success story JooMo Ltd.
