"The concept of probiotic bacteria is considerably evolving. Clinical and experimental researches extensively document that beyond probiotic capacity to influence positively the intestinal functions, they can exert their benefits at the skin level thanks to their peculiar properties. Indeed, scientific and evidence-based reports strengthen the assumption that certain probiotics can contribute to modulate cutaneous microflora, lipid barrier, and skin immune system, leading to the preservation of the skin homeostasis. In this chapter, the most relevant evidences available from scientific literature as well as registered patents have been summarized in relation to actual or potential topical applications of probiotics in the field of dermatology. Altogether the evidences reported in this review afford the possibility of designing new strategies based on a topical approach for the prevention and treatment of cutaneous disorders. "

Abstract

"The concept of probiotic bacteria is considerably evolving. Clinical and experimental researches extensively document that beyond probiotic capacity to influence positively the intestinal functions, they can exert their benefits at the skin level thanks to their peculiar properties. Indeed, scientific and evidence-based reports strengthen the assumption that certain probiotics can contribute to modulate cutaneous microflora, lipid barrier, and skin immune system, leading to the preservation of the skin homeostasis. In this chapter, the most relevant evidences available from scientific literature as well as registered patents have been summarized in relation to actual or potential topical applications of probiotics in the field of dermatology. Altogether the evidences reported in this review afford the possibility of designing new strategies based on a topical approach for the prevention and treatment of cutaneous disorders. "
