We answer the top five questions we’ve received concerning our new, biome-friendly moisturizer.
We were incredibly excited by the amount of interest in our new moisturizer. It was the most requested addition to our product line. But we know everyone still has lots of questions on their minds—after all, this is the very first biome-friendly moisturizer!
Here, we answer five of our top FAQs:
What are the ingredients in the Moisturizer?
Squalane (from olive), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (from coconut), Linoleic Acid, Phytosterols, Phospholipids, Tocopherol (antioxidant from coconut).
Doesn't the Mist negate the need for Moisturizer?
This was one of the first questions we asked when we first began developing the Moisturizer—as you know, we think that when it comes to skin care products, less is more. We also think that the peacekeeper bacteria in the AO+ Mist were all our ancestors needed for healthy-looking skin.
In short: The Moisturizer can’t replace the Mist—it won't restore that healthy balance to your skin like Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB). There's no substitute for those little bugs. But if you have especially dry skin, it will provide some additional relief. We think the Moisturizer is an especially great introduction to biome-friendly skin care, especially for our customers who haven't made the full switch from conventional products, or who are not ready to try the Mist.
We hope that this Moisturizer will not only fit the bill for those after natural, AOB-compatible moisturizers, like pure Argan oil, but that it expands the audience of people willing to listen to new ideas about skin health and cosmetics.
How long does it last?
If it has not yet been pumped (and even better, if it’s still in its shrink-wrapped packaging), the Moisturizer will be stable if unopened for two years. After first pump, the clock starts ticking and runs out at six months.
What is the consistency of the moisturizer? Is it a serum? An oil?
The feel of our moisturizer is one of its more unique attributes. While you may be used to thicker, creamier formulas, our product is very thin and light. You can expect a clear, quick-drying substance with a velvety consistency.
Does it have a fragrance?
No! The moisturizer is unfragranced, ideal for sensitive skin.
