“With the series, we wanted to allow the viewers to join us in investigating the skin's entanglement with the microorganisms that live on and in it,” Hitchcock said. “Our intention is to help the viewers really understand what the skin is truly composed of, which is much more than just human cells, and how daily habits can either hurt or help the symbiosis that is important for ultimate skin health. We want to educate our audience so that the terms ‘probiotic’ and ‘microbiome’ are more than just buzzwords and so they understand how and why the microbiome is so critical to the health of our skin.”
