Global clean beauty skincare company, Codex Beauty, have announced today that their skincare line, Bia, has achieved the Microbiome-friendly certification according to MyMicrobiome Standard 18.10. The certification is for all six face products being their Day Cream, Skin Superfood, Eye Gel Cream, Facial Oil, Exfoliating Wash, and Wash Off Cleansing Oil.
This means that the skincare line will not harm any of the ‘good’ microbes within our bodies that keep the bad bacteria at bay. According to MyMicrobiome Standard, all the good and bad bacteria live in a sort of ‘ecosystem’ that should remain balanced. If it were to change, then this would lead to the growth of unwanted organisms that can colonize the skin. The MyMicrobiome Standards 18.10 is one of six standards test ensures consumers that any product with the certificate does not affect the ecosystem and your skin in return.
The testing criteria is checks the microbial quality of the product, its effect on natural, healthy skin balance, its influence on the bacterial diversity of the specific body region and how it affects the growth behaviour of the microbes of the particular body region
By having this certification, Codex Beauty will not only be a certified clean, vegan, cruelty-free, and a sustainable company, but they will also be friendly for the skin and human health overall.
