The need for solutions to combat new and existing infections has never been so topical. The current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the rise in antimicrobial resistance in previously treatable microbial diseases are two examples requiring antimicrobial solutions for systemic or topical treatment or as preventative measures, including empowering improved infection control measures. At the same time, the sustainability of ingredients, formulation excipients and the drive to use more natural ingredients in products have led to increased research outputs on natural products or novel compounds, and to a reflection on formulations and how these can improve the efficacy of antimicrobials.
