Our Active Probiotic System

When used as a complete system, our formulas are designed to work together to biologically repair and restore your skin microbiome. Our supporting products act as a primer for our patented live and active AO+ Restorative Mist, delivering maximum results and total skin wellness.

How it Works

Traditional skincare has scrubbed, peeled and stripped away the good bacteria on our skin, so we figured out a way to put it back in. Our proprietary ingredient, live AOB, interacts with elements naturally found in your sweat to produce two powerful byproducts - Nitrite and Nitric Oxide - that are essential to a balanced skin microbiome.

Your System

Step 1

Prebiotic Foaming Cleanser

A prebiotic cleanser that removes impurities without stripping

Step 2

A non-drying daily acne treatment with salicylic acid

Step 3

The only live and active topical probiotic of its kind, this Mist is formulated with over 3+ billion CFUs in every bottle to restore balance to your microbiome
