Givaudan Active Beauty launches the B-Biome Score

The first scientifically-proven, transparent 100% microbiome-friendly label for cosmetic ingredients.
Givaudan Active Beauty sets a new standard in skin microbiome testing with the launch of B-Biome Score. Completely transparent and accessible to the entire beauty industry, the B-Biome Score label is microbiome-friendly and scientifically demonstrated, backed by a scientific publication and approved by an expert in dermatology. For greater accessibility and understanding, B-Biome Score results are indicated by letters from A to E.

In recent years, consumers have become familiar with the skin microbiome trend, whose benefits are now highly sought-after. A recent global study2 conducted by Givaudan Active Beauty showed that 84% of consumers found the B-Biome Score certificate innovative; 79% of those surveyed would be willing to buy a beauty product carrying it.

Romain Reynaud, R&D Director: " At Givaudan, we leverage our knowledge and innovations in the skin microbiome to develop new ingredients. Developed by experts at our Microbiomics Center of Excellence in Toulouse, France, B-Biome Score offers a scientifically proven evaluation method in an open format, enabling beauty brands to quickly understand the impact of active ingredients on the skin microbiome.
B-Biome Score relies on advanced dermatological expertise to determine the final score for a given active ingredient based on three scientific criteria:

  • Short-term impact after application to the skin.
  • Cumulative impact after several days on the skin.
  • Resilience of microbial viability after cessation of application.

As proof of our commitment to offering the best microbiome-friendly ingredients on the cosmetics market, the B-Biome Score will gradually be adopted in our portfolio of active ingredients.
