Has it ever occurred to you that of the many shampoos, cleaners and lotions we use, many can actually be causing harm with the ingredients inside? I cannot pretend to know how to break down all those chemical names found in the ingredient list and understand the effects on our body from good to bad. However, I do understand bacteria that can also be good or bad and know that something very important is missing when it comes to our health starting with our skin. One way to re-introduce good bacteria to the skin is to use Mother Dirt’s line of probiotic skincare. Mother Dirt is a brand of skincare products that contain Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria, or AOB, which is a type of bacteria that works to keep our skin healthy. The bacteria are everywhere in nature, but they are missing from our skin because of many of the products we use that ‘wash’ that good bacteria away.
The good bacteria on our bodies have a huge impact on how our we function from mental health, obesity, allergies and more and studies are underway as to why. Our body hosts these microorganisms that make up our microbiome. To say we should produce beauty products that promote a healthy biome system means that we need to stop depleting the good bacteria our skin plays host to for our well being. The microbiome is more than just healthy bacteria, but also fungi and viruses. Think about probiotics and how we use this positive supplement to restore digestion and gut health. It’s the same thing but we can start with the biggest host-our skin.
If science and skin are not your thing, do you like wine or coffee? I thought that would get your attention. Both are loaded with beneficial bacteria and it is the microbiome that contributes to the taste differences in wines.
- AO+ Mist is a spray you apply to the body especially in sweat prone areas. Great to use right out of the shower and when you workout or at bedtime when you rest. It adds that natural balance back to your skin and improves oily and dry skin. Your skin will feel softer and smoother and works great for those with sensitive skin.
- Face & Body Cleaner is a pump filled with a light foam that you can massage into damp skin and rinse off, like conventional soap or body wash. It even works great at removing makeup and while shaving. Having a versatile product eliminates other products which is great on our environment. You can use this with the AO+ Mist because it keeps live AOB healthy.
- Shampoo is great for keeping the ecosystem of the scalp and hair in balance. It works so great you may find you can skip using the conditioner-many do and I have also not used conditioner with this shampoo but I do have thin hair. Works to give hair a healthy shine.
