Skin Microbiome 101

Your skin - like any ecosystem - needs bacteria to thrive. Wonderful, dirty, harmonizing bacteria that make up the skin microbiome. When your biome is in balance, the good bacteria keep the bad bacteria in check, biologically protecting your skin to reveal your most radiant self. But when your biome is unbalanced, your skin will let you know - with dryness, oiliness and breakouts.

How They Work

Shaping Our Modern Skin Microbiome

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.
