What we do
MyMicrobiome is an independent control body that rigorously tests cosmetics and other products for the impact on the skin’s microbiome.
After passing the test successfully your products are entitled to wear the microbiome-friendly seal.
MyMicrobiome.info is a free information platform for dietitians, physicists, and laypersons.
We keep an eye on the lastest scientific findings worldwide and report on relevant news in a way that is understandable for everyone.
Here you find the latest microbiome-friendly certified products.

Who we are
Rooted in the world of academics, Dr. Kristin Neumann was searching an alternative to antibiotics when she first learned about the importance of an intact microbiome. She felt the urge to share her insights and founded the info platform MyMicrobiome.info.
Tanja as an out and out media designer was the one who transformed Kristin’s academic knowledge into portions easy to digest for the average reader. Overwhelmed by the positive feedback and interest in the matter, the two ladies joined hands for the next step: the company MyMicrobiome was born.
