The Skin Microbiome

AOB

Skin biome research

Ingredients that don't pass the Biome-Friendly test:

(1) Alcohol and ethanol 

(2) Strong surfactants like: SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) &  SDS (Sodium Hydroxide) - these are the most common. A bit less common but still come up regularly are quaternary ammonium surfactants, such as quaternium-15 and benzalkonium (try saying that 10 times fast!)

(3) Broadly all preservatives are not biome-friendly. Afterall preservatives are in formulas to kill bacteria. Some common examples here are phenoxyethanol, parabens, and sodium benzoate.

(4) Anti-microbial essential oils (thyme, eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree). Essential oils are potent in general. Those with antimicrobial activity are especially powerful. These should be used sparsely, and for specific areas (not everywhere all the time). 

For more information about how we test for impact on the skin microbiome, please visit biomefriendly.com

42 A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

Feel Good Effect PodcastRobyn DownsComment

A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

What to do (and not do) if you’re a perfectionist. In this episode we’ll dive into why you might be a perfectionist (and not even know it), plus how this mindset may be holding you back from your wellness goals, as well as what to do (and not do) about it.

Listen Now


Listen on Apple Podcasts


Key Takeaways

We all have an image in mind when we think of a perfectionist.

Impeccably dressed, clean home, always arriving on time, having it all together.

And while that image is certainly one way of perfectionism can show up, it’s not the only way.

Perfectionism shows up in different ways for different people.

So just because you don’t fit the stereotype image of the perfectionist, doesn’t mean perfectionism isn’t a mindset that’s affecting your life, or holding you back from where you want to be.

In this episode we’ll dive into what to do (and not do) to beat the perfectionist mindset.

A Decision Diet is a way to manage mental energy so you have more self-control and willpower when it comes to things that matter.
