Skinification for Your Scalp: The Connection Between Scalp and Skin Care

When it comes to skincare, we often focus on our face and neglect our scalp, leaving it itchy, flaky, and irritated. It is important to understand that our scalp is an extension of our skin and requires the same care and attention. This is where the concept of “skinification” comes in. Skinification is the process of treating your scalp like your skin, with the same products and care that you would use on your face. In this blog post, we will explore the connection between scalp and skin care and discuss some of the best products and practices for a healthy scalp.

The connection between scalp and skin care

The connection between scalp and skin care lies in the fact that the scalp is made up of the same types of skin cells as the rest of our body. Therefore, it requires the same care and attention as the skin on our face, hands, and feet. Neglecting our scalp can lead to a range of issues such as dandruff, itchiness, and even hair loss. Regular shampooing and conditioning can help to keep your scalp clean and healthy, but sometimes, it requires a little extra attention.

Root problem

Healthy and long-lasting hair starts with a healthy scalp. When the scalp is not in optimal condition–either due to hormonal imbalances or medical conditions–our entire hair health suffers as a result of it. The moisture levels on our scalps can have major effects that range from dry skin issues all the way up to irreversible hair loss if left unchecked for too long, which highlights just how important proper maintenance at the root level truly is!

How to Start with Skinification?

If you’re new to the scalp care realm, there’s no need to go overboard. It’s important to take your time and incorporate scalp care products slowly to see how your scalp responds. Start by choosing a mild scalp care product, such as a renewing scalp exfoliator, or a gentle scalp cleanser, followed by a nourishing scalp serum to provide nutrients to your hair roots. A scalp massager is another tiny tool that can help with exfoliation and blood flow stimulation in your scalp, giving your hair the best chance at growth.

Skinification with a clean start

When it comes to skinification for your scalp, it is important to start with a clean slate. Make sure to remove any build-up or styling products, and then give your scalp a good cleanse. Avoid using hot water, which can strip the scalp of its natural oils, and opt for warm or cool water instead. After washing your hair, follow up with a conditioning treatment, focusing on the ends rather than the scalp.

Unlocking the secret to healthy hair could lie in your skin care routine. Incorporating tried-and-true ingredients and techniques from a skincare arsenal can make all the difference when it comes to scalp issues. To get started on finding what works for you, assess any styling habits that might be harming strands or causing extra buildup – like regular heat treatments and tight hairstyles such as braids – as they will ultimately dictate which products are best suited for achieving optimal scalp side health!

Best products for scalp care

One of the best products for a healthy scalp is a scalp scrub. A scalp scrub helps to exfoliate the skin on your scalp, removing build-up and dead skin cells, and promoting healthy hair growth. Look for scrubs that contain natural ingredients like sugar, salt, or coffee grinds, as these are gentle yet effective. A weekly scalp scrub can do wonders for your scalp’s health and appearance.

Another important product for a healthy scalp is a balancing shampoo. Balancing shampoos help to cleanse the scalp, remove excess oil and sebum, and restore the scalp’s natural pH balance. Look for shampoos that are free of sulfates and contain natural ingredients like tea tree oil, rosemary, or peppermint, which can stimulate hair growth and soothe an irritated scalp.

Sunscreen and scalp health

One thing that many people forget is to protect their scalp from the sun. Just like the skin on our face, the scalp is susceptible to sun damage and can even develop skin cancer. Therefore, it is important to wear a hat or use sunscreen on your scalp, especially if you have thinning hair or a bald spot. Look for sunscreens that are specifically formulated for the scalp, as they will be lightweight and won’t leave a greasy residue.

To protect your scalp and face from the sun’s rays, cream-based sunscreens are a great option. They tend to be gentler on hair than dry alcohol sprays, plus there are even hats with built in SPF available now! Remember that regular hats without UV protection can’t replace sunscreen – so make sure you always apply before catching some sunshine.

Time to try skinification

In conclusion, skinification for your scalp is essential for a healthy and happy head of hair. By treating your scalp like your skin, you can prevent issues like dandruff, itchiness, and hair loss, and promote healthy hair growth. Invest in a good scalp scrub and balancing shampoo, and make sure to cleanse and condition your hair regularly. Also, don’t forget to protect your scalp from the sun, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Happy scalping!

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
