Product description according to manufacturer:

"usNeo – Widely Applicable Antimicrobial System:

usNeo™ is a microbe-balancing cosmetic active derived from the alpine lichen Usnea barbata. usNeo™ has excellent activity against acne-, body odor-, and dandruff-causing bacteria, but a limited activity against other microorganisms. usNeo™ is, thus, thought to effectively counteract the microbial cause of blemished skin, body odor, and dandruff, while at the same time not significantly impacting the natural skin flora."

The results are evaluated with grades from 1 (one) to 3 (three).
If the product shows no or positive influence to the above-mentioned aspects, a grade of 1 is awarded respectively.
If only a very weak negative influence can be detected in the tests, the grade 2 is awarded and in case of a clearly negative influence, the product receives the grade 3.

The product has passed up to grade 2.0.

The MyMicrobiome Standard evaluates cosmetic and personal care products, that encounter the skin or mucous membrane, in terms of their influence on the microbiome located at a specific body site.

An intact skin microbiome has a fundamental influence on skin health. Products which are to be skin-friendly must also be Microbiome-friendly in order not to unbalance the skin of the user.

The MyMicrobiome Standard evaluates the influence of cosmetic and personal care products on the microbial key players of a specific skin or mucous membrane area. The human microbiome is very individual from person to person.

Each area, however, harbors a characteristic composition of bacteria, viruses and fungi. The test examines the products influence on the key organisms typical for each skin area and thus offers a standardized procedure.
