Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA

This is an in-person meeting.


19th-20th Oct 2023


San Diego, CA

5th Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA


The agenda is in production. Contact Mike Burden if you would like to contribute to the 2023 meeting.

The 5th Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA will explore the burgeoning field of skin microbiome research. In 2022 case studies focused on topics such atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, acne, allergy, wounds, scalp and anti-ageing, and the microbiome-based products being developed to fight these diseases. The conference also provided insight into the future of microbiome-based cosmetics, with numerous presentations given on trial design, commercial strategy, consumer awareness & expectations and how scientific insight is driving innovation.

The new agenda will be published later this year.

“I got useful information about the front line of Skin microbiome research and current trends”
“Diverse set of talks from important players.”
“Great variation in the content, was great to have the concurrent sessions”
“Skin microbiome is my primary interest, but learning in adjacent areas like prebiotics/technical development of models is also important”
Some of the 2022 speakers

Event App

We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.


You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.


An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
