Glucomannan hydrolysates (GMH) have been shown to have positive prebiotic properties and when ingested have been shown to have a positive but indirect impact on the skin. However, direct in vivo topical benefits have not been established. The aim of this work was to establish how effective GMH is with respect to improving skin health especially the reduction of infection due to acne vulgaris.
