Here is the full ingredients listing for the AO+ Mist: Water, live cultured ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB), disodium phosphate, magnesium chloride.
Let’s go through them one at a time:
Live cultured ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB): This is our patented strain of live cultured Nitrosomonas bacteria (Nitrosomonas D23), a type of Ammonia-Oxidizing-Bacteria. Nitrosomonas is a form of “good bacteria” that is able to live on our skin because they consume the ammonia and urea in the sweat on our skin and convert it into beneficial byproducts (nitrite and nitric oxide).
Disodium phosphate: An inorganic salt, buffering agent, pH adjuster and a key component of the buffer solution that the AOB thrive in.
Magnesium chloride: An inorganic salt that is a key component of the buffer solution that the AOB thrive in.
Water: Helps dissolve the salts and keeps the AOBs in a sustainable medium for delivery to the skin.
The AO+ Mist is not a replacement for soap. Instead, it should be used after bathing, before bedtime, or whenever else you find convenient. It is intended to help your skin have a more balanced biome, leading to improved appearance and feel.
