Microbiome Science

As the largest and most visible organ, the skin not only gives clues into what's happening beneath the surface in terms of immune function, nutrition, oxidative stress, and metabolic issues, to name a few, it's the body's first line of defense against infection, environmental stressors, and loss of nutrients and water. The skin microbiome is constantly interacting with our environment and works to support our health by protecting against infection, influencing the immune response, protecting against UV radiation, and helps provide nourishment to the skin cells. Poor barrier function isn't just linked to poor skin health, it may be linked to poor overall health. In our new normal, in some ways defined by hyper-sterilization, the importance of our biome is a new lifeline: We need a healthy set of diverse organisms more than ever —and yet we are increasingly putting it at risk. MONO products actually start treating your skin like a barrier.


Our modern lifestyles significantly impact our skin biomes. Historically, much of our skin's biodiversity came from interacting with nature. At MONO Skincare, we believe that our skin microbiome is deeply connected with the natural world. That's why we've designed our products to harmonize science with modern conveniences, all while prioritizing sustainability and equitable access to healthy, natural skincare.

Our formulas are enriched with clinically proven prebiotics that support the skin’s microbiota, such as inulins derived from chicory and agave. These powerful prebiotics have been shown to:

  • Prevent the recurrence of severe skin conditions
  • Maintain the health of even the most sensitive skin
  • Protect the skin’s natural barrier
  • Keep the skin hydrated
  • Reduce the effects of aging on the skin microbiota
  • Recolonize the skin surface to prevent the invasion of harmful species

Experience the benefits of nature and science working together for your skin with MONO Skincare.

How MONO products better preserve our skin biodiversity? 

There's so much in our "normal" skin care routines that actively harms our biodiversity. Various factors including ingredients in topical skin care products, household products, and cosmetics can disrupt the microbiome and trigger or exacerbate conditions like psoriasis or acne, and even accelerated aging. Potent preservatives—like parabens and formaldehyde-releasing preservative, have the potential to kill organisms on our skin as well. Overly aggressive routines and exfoliators in overdrive can weaken our skin by eroding the barrier's protective layers and shifting the natural pH. MONO products are exclusively composed of natural, safest and harmless ingredients and preservatives, and carry organic certification.
