What is MyMicrobiome and how is this awarded?
MyMicrobiome is an independent organisation composed of scientists who evaluate the impact of personal care products on the skin microbiome. They have developed a standard of testing that assesses how products influence and impact the skin microbiome.
Why is this accreditation important?
Securing the Quality Seal ‘Microbiome-friendly’ from MyMicrobiome guarantees that using WaterWipes® Adult Sensitive and WaterWipes® Baby Wipes does not disrupt the microbial diversity and balance of the skin, leaving the healthy microbiome of the surface and deeper layers of the skin intact.
The skin microbiome is made up of millions of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microbes. It’s a complex and diverse ecosystem that requires a healthy and delicate balance to support these microorganisms and maintain their environment. Disruption of the delicate balance of the skin microbiota can breakdown the skin’s protective barrier function and could lead to the onset of skin conditions. The microbiome is important because it protects against pathogens that could impact people’s skin and their health.
What makes WaterWipes® different?
WaterWipes® is committed to developing safe, high-quality products that support a healthy skin microbiome. Our products have been developed to help maintain the important skin barrier function of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin, while offering the convenience of a wipe. Made with just two ingredients, WaterWipes® provides safe cleansing for the most delicate skin.
