JooMo 2 Weeks Biodiversity Change

Following their groundbreaking 2017 discovery of the ‘first ever mechanism for measuring skin health‘ (ref: Why’s Biodiversity so important?), JooMo have formed a partnership with the Medical University of Graz

Trials were conducted to compare the effect on skin health of a leading ‘Synthetic’ brand and a so-called ‘Natural’ brand against JooMo.

Two primary measures of skin health were used: the effect each product had on skin’s microbiome biodiversity, and the effect they had on the skin’s moisture retention.. 

The full results are currently being written up, and will be published in May 2018, but two extraordinary findings can be revealed:

JooMo 2 Weeks Biodiversity Change

JooMo significantly increases your skin's natural biodiversity, and as a result, skin health in 2 weeks.

Within just 2 weeks, the participants using JooMo saw a 66% increase in their skin's microbial biodiversity, compared to 3.5% (Leading Synthetic Brand) and 14.2% (Leading 'Natural' Brand).

The results clearly show that existing ‘Synthetic’ and so-called ‘Natural’ products (that in reality normally contain many synthetic ingredients) are probably a major contributing risk factor in the depleted biodiversity we see in Western skin.

The University of Graz trials also illustrate how JooMo leads the way in Third Wave Cosmetics by enhancing the skin microbiome. A good rule of thumb is a healthy microbiome is a diverse microbiome, containing a wide variety of different species living all over our bodies.

It is a bit like a rainforest: you might have a very nice fern that is very happy but if that is the only thing in your rainforest and you don’t have a diversity it is not going to be good [for the] soil.”

...it’s having the right community of bacteria that are working together and together producing the right chemicals for your body.
