Introducing the first biome-friendly moisturizer.
Meet our biome-friendly moisturizer.
The ingredients and the final formula were selected based on their impact to the ecosystem of microorganisms that live on your skin, which is called the skin biome.
We tested several moisturizers with the most sensitive members of this ecosystem - the Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB) found in the AO+ Mist. Here are the results:
While we’re still working on understanding these interactions, preservatives and complex chemicals in store-bought formulas seem to have the biggest impact on AOB health.
Just as in the gut microbiome, researchers are learning that constant disruption of this ecosystem through daily use of products could leave the skin more prone to issues long term.
There’s a lot left to learn. This is why every purchase supports our research in skin health through our clinical division, AOBiome.
