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.

This stuff is worth every cent! I love how soft and supple my skin feels even after just a week of using it. And I especially love knowing that I am putting back some of the vital, good bacteria that regular washing destroys!

  • FAQ
Q: What kind of results can I expect from the AO+ Restorative Mist?
A: Our AO+ Restorative Mist, with a patented live and active probiotic, is clinically proven to show improvement in skin clarity, tone and smoothness in 30 days. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, combats blemish-causing bacteria, improves the appearance of problem skin, and hydrates skin. Whether you have dry, oily, sensitive or combination skin, this preservative-free mist is right for your skin type and is formulated with over 3+ billion CFUs in every bottle to restore balance to your microbiome.
Q: How do the ingredients in the AO+ Restorative Mist work?
A: Discovered and researched by MIT scientists, AO+ Restorative Mist is formulated with a live and active peacekeeping bacteria called Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB) which was once omnipresent on our skin. This bacteria maintained harmony in the skin ecosystem by consuming ammonia and urea in sweat and converting them into beneficial byproducts like Nitrite and Nitric Oxide that literally keep the peace with the bad bacteria that naturally live on skin. This easy-to-use probiotic face mist restores this good bacteria to your microbiome, leaving you with balanced skin that is no longer dry or oily, and is refreshed, smooth and hydrated. Complete your routine with a misting of this facial spray, the true hero of our Active Probiotic System.
Q: How do I use the AO+ Restorative Mist?
A: The fragrance-free AO+ Restorative Mist gives a super boost to your microbiome with just 2-3 sprays, twice a day. However you can't have too much of a good thing so you can always enjoy additional misting whenever you'd like (before or after a workout is a good idea, since the AOB feed off sweat!). Since this product is a live culture and preservative-free, it's important to keep it refrigerated to preserve the probiotics.
Q: How does the AO+ Restorative Mist work in the Active Probiotic System?
A: The AO+ Restorative Mist is what truly makes our Active Probiotic System unique. A cult favorite, our live culture topical probiotic has been in the press for years for its unique nature and skin microbiome balancing properties. All of our other formulas were specifically designed with prebiotics and postbiotics to not only intensify the results of those individual products, but also to act as a primer for the Mist to provide enhanced results.
Q: Why do I need probiotic skincare?
A: Research suggests incorporating probiotics into a skin regimen can soothe inflammation, diminish acne and restore your skin's barrier. Our AO+ Restorative Mist is a first of its kind product to use truly live and active probiotics to restore your microbiome for healthier looking skin. Our mist restores an essential component, Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria, to your skin microbiome that has been scrubbed and stripped away by harsh ingredients in traditional skincare products.
