About This Project

LikoLab

Our skin is a dynamic ecosystem for the bacteria, archaea and fungi that call it home. Cleaning products, textiles, and behaviors shape our skin microbiome, the composition of which may in turn feed back on our health and the health of those we interact with. We believe that changes in cleaning habits, or textiles can positively alter the microbial ecology of our skin.
