Introducing the 2QR-Complex
What it does
The patented 2QR-complex is an innovative ingredient for the treatment and prevention of microbial complaints which affect the skin and mucosa. Selfcare products based on 2QR-complex have proven effective at treating and preventing the discomforts that occur as a result of microbial imbalance. They give direct relief from common problems which can range from itch, irritation, swelling and reddening to dry, cracked skin.
How it works
2QR-complex neutralizes harmful microbes by preventing them to contact human tissues. Products containing the patented 2QR-complex form a physical barrier and offer a preferred alternative to antibiotics for these discomforts.
Microbes colonize all of our body surfaces – both inside (mucosa) and outside (skin). About ten times more microbial cells than we have human cells live on our skin and mucosa. We host more than a thousand different species of these microorganisms. This community of microbes that inhabit the human body (or a specific site in the body) is collectively referred to as the microbiota.
The microbiota consists of beneficial microbes and harmful microbes. Most of the time, the beneficial microbes keep the harmful microbes (pathogens) in check, creating balance. Imbalanced conditions, when harmful microbes dominate the microbiota and cause problems, are called microbial dysbiosis. Harmful microbes contact human skin and mucosal tissues as the first step towards infection and discomforts. The first step towards infection and discomforts is the contact of microbes to human skin and mucosal tissues. Physical barrier therapies can help prevent bacteria from contacting the human tissue
