1. It's the hero of our Active Probiotic System

2. Clinical results & benefits

It's no secret that, as the first product of its kind, our AO+ Restorative Mist boasts a ton of benefits you won't find anywhere else. Here are just some of the great benefits of using our AO+ Restorative Mist:

  • Clinically proven to show improvement in skin clarity, tone and smoothness in 30 days
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Combats blemish-causing bacteria
  • Improves the appearance of problem skin
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Smoothes the skin
  • It helps restore and rebalance the skin microbiome
  • Restores essential bacteria lost to modern hygiene
  • Refreshes the skin
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Balances pH in the acid mantle

3. It's made with four simple, naturally derived ingredients

That's right. Our AO+ Restorative Mist is formulated with just four ingredients: water, Nitrosomonas eutropha (also known as ammonia-oxidizing Bacteria, or AOB), disodium phosphate, and magnesium chloride (salt). You can learn more about them in our ingredients glossary.

4. It contains a patented live culture

Setting it apart from any other product on the market, the patented ingredient in our AO+ Restorative Mist, live AOB, interacts with elements naturally found on your skin and in sweat to produce two powerful byproducts - Nitrite and Nitric Oxide - that are essential to a balanced skin microbiome.

5. Dermatologists recommend it

Even dermatologists can't get enough of our AO+ Restorative Mist. Dr. Jessica Krant, a board-certified dermatologist with over 20 years of experience, says she would "highly recommend the mist" and raves that the "AO+ Restorative Mist is unlike any other skincare product on the market today."

Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe is a fan of the mist as well. "[Mother Dirt] has found a way to find these bacteria that no longer exist on our skin," she explained. "Through our very hygienic practices over the years, we've killed off these good bugs."

6. Designed for all skin types

Restoring your skin microbiome with probiotics, like the live and active culture found inside our mist, translates into healthier, glowing skin and a clearer complexion, no matter your skin type. So whether you're dry, oily, sensitive, or acne-prone, you'll see the same incredible results -- skin that appears healthy, vibrant and clear.

Our AO+ Restorative Mist is undoubtedly an editor favorite featured in the New York Times, Byrdie, Cosmopolitan, and more. Our AO+ Restorative Mist is undoubtedly an editor favorite. Here's what they're saying:

"My skin began to change for the better. It actually became softer and smoother, rather than dry and flaky, as though a sauna's worth of humidity had penetrated my winter-hardened shell."

"In other words, it's like skincare for the lazy girl - the bacteria do all the work for you, including improving the texture and appearance of skin peppered with sensitivity, blotchiness, dryness, oiliness, and even making body odor less apparent."

"You've probably heard of probiotic skincare, aimed to regulate the 'good' bacteria on the skin's surface in order to balance skin and reduce breakouts. But Mother Dirt has taken it one step further and captured an actual live bacteria and bottled it up for us to spritz onto our faces in the AO+ Restorative Mist."

"The results are seriously impressive: it rebalances, reduces flare-ups and gets your skin back in the swing of successfully self-regulating sebum and moisture levels."

"This body spray contains water, salt, and live 'ammonia-oxidizing bacteria' which settle into the skin to fend off bad bacteria, while also preserving skin's healthy pH balance."
