The MyMicrobiome Standard 18.10 assesses cosmetic and skin care products that come in contact with the skin or mucous membranes, with regard to their influence on the microbiome located there.

An intact skin microbiome has a fundamental influence on skin health. Products that are supposed to be skin-friendly must therefore also be Microbiome-friendly so as not to unbalance the skin of the user.

The Microbiome-friendly seal of quality assesses the influence of cosmetic and personal care products on the microbial representatives of a particular skin or mucosal area. The human microbiome is very individual from person to person. Each area, however, houses a characteristic composition of bacteria, viruses and fungi - the so-called core microbiome. The test examines the microbes typical of each skin area, providing a standardized procedure.
