Introduction: Several olfactory receptors (ORs) are expressed in human skin, where they regulate skin pigmentation, barrier function, wound healing, and hair growth. Previously, we found that the selective activation of OR family 2 subfamily AT member 4 (OR2AT4) by the synthetic, sandalwood-like odorant Sandalore® differentially stimulates the expression of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) in human scalp hair follicle epithelium ex vivo. As OR2AT4 is also expressed by epidermal keratinocytes, we hypothesized that it may modulate intraepidermal AMP synthesis, thereby contributing to skin microbiome management. Methods: We investigated this hypothesis in organ-cultured human skin in the presence of Sandalore® and antibiotics and evaluated epidermal production of two AMPs, LL37 (cathelicidin) and dermcidin (DCD), as well as OR2AT4, by quantitative immunohistomorphometry. Moreover, we quantified DCD secretion into the culture medium by ELISA and studied the effect of culture medium on selected bacterial and fungal strains. Results: Topical application of Sandalore®to organ-cultured human skin increased OR2AT4 protein expression, the number of DCD-positive intraepidermal cells, and DCD secretion into culture media, without significantly affecting epidermal LL37 expression. In line with the significantly increased secretion of DCD into the culture medium, we demonstrated, in a spectrophotometric assay, that application of conditioned media from Sandalore®-treated skin promotes Staphylococcus epidermidis, Malassezia restricta, and, minimally, Cutibacterium acnes and inhibits Staphylococcus aureus growth. Conclusion: In addition to demonstrating for the first time that DCD can be expressed by epidermal keratinocytes, our pilot study suggests that topical treatment of human skin with a cosmetic odorant (Sandalore®) has the potential to alter the composition of the human skin microbiome through the selective upregulation of DCD. If confirmed, Sandalore® could become an attractive adjuvant, nondrug treatment for dermatoses characterized by dysbiosis due to overgrowth of S. aureus and Malassezia, such as atopic dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis.
