MyMicrobiome unveils new standard for women's intimate care products

Published: 13-Feb-2024

MyMicrobiome, the leading independent certification body for microbiome-friendly cosmetics and textiles, proudly introduces an innovative and groundbreaking standard, the Vulvo-Vaginal Standard 25.10

Dr. Kristin Neumann, Chief Scientific Officer at MyMicrobiome, articulated, "The female microbiome undergoes continuous transformations and navigates challenges throughout the various stages of a woman's life. Hormonal fluctuations, hygiene practices, and medications can significantly impact the delicate balance of the female microbiome.

In response to the escalating demand for intimate care products that respect the microbial balance, we are witnessing a surge in interest. Our customers seek substantiated claims regarding the microbiome-friendly nature of these products. To address these evolving needs, we have developed a standard that meticulously addresses both the vaginal and vulval microbiomes. This standard encompasses essential microbes for the vagina, including Lactobacilli, and skin microbes found in the vulva, such as Staphylococci and Cutibacteria. Our new standard 25.10 guarantees that the intimate care product is microbiome-friendly and respects the balance and diversity of the vulvo-vaginal area."

This comprehensive standard is adaptable for application in both cosmetics and textiles. It is designed for various products such as creams, gels, intimate washes, lubricants, sanitary liners, diapers, and more.

MyMicrobiome invites brands, individuals, healthcare professionals, and the media to explore the new Vulvo-Vaginal Standard and join the conversation about the importance of the microbiome in intimate health.
