Kind to Biome

The KIND TO BIOME seal of quality is for science-forward brands that strive for skin and scalp microbiome-gentleness.

KIND TO BIOME offers accessible product-microbiome testing. Working closely with science-forward skin care, cosmetic and personal care brands, KIND TO BIOME assesses how individual ingredients and formulas influence the skin’s microbiome – the all-important skin health dimension.

Skin microbiome—the all-important dimension in skin health.

The KIND TO BIOME mark is for science-backed skincare brands that make skin microbiome-gentle products.

“As a hair professional I know that great hair starts at the scalp with a healthy skin microbiome - so, I’m thrilled that my Light Nourish and Rich Cleanse shampoos have received the KIND TO BIOME quality mark. This accreditation is so important as it’s a seal of quality that enables consumers to shop with confidence.”
