When we first learned about this company we loved them because they challenged us to reconsider what it means to be clean and healthy. Just like our gut needs good bacteria to be healthy, the same is true for our skin.
Mother Dirt skin products are the first to ever be formulated to preserve the good bacteria naturally found on the skin. This is why it's Mother Dirt's mission to create products that enhance and protect the skin biome. Mother Dirt believes restoring and maintaining beneficial bacteria is the answer to healthy skin and a great first step to a healthier lifestyle.
Three Mother Dirt Products We Love
The Mother Dirt Biome Friendly Moisturizer is a nourishing formula for your face and body. The ingredients in this moisturizing formula were selected to mimic the natural skin barrier and help to replenish essential components typically removed with modern cleansing products.
The Mother Dirt Biome Friendly Moisturizer is suitable for dry, oily, and sensitive skin types. This moisturizer enhances the results of the Mother Dirt AO+ Mist. It is preservative-free, fragrance-free, kid-friendly and plant-based.
Moisturizer Ingredients: Squalane (from olive), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (from coconut), Linoleic Acid, Phytosterols, Phospholipids, Tocopherol (antioxidant)
Use this product as-needed when you notice dry skin. Start with a small drop, massage into skin, and add more as necessary. A little goes a long way.
The Mother Dirt AO + Mist is a live probiotic spray for the skin. This spray restores live, essential bacteria that has been removed by modern hygiene and lifestyles. Think of it as a "peacekeeper" because of its ability to keep a healthy balance on your skin.
The Mother Dirt AO + Mist reduces dependence on products like deodorants, moisturizers, and makeup. It is preservative-free, fragrance-free, kid-friendly and sensitive skin-friendly.
AO+ Mist Ingredients: Water, live cultured ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB), disodium phosphate, magnesium chloride
The specific type of AOB (Ammonia-Oxidizing Bactere) used in the AO+ Mist is Nitrosomonas eutropha D23.
Before use, shake the bottle well. Spray topically wherever you please (areas where you sweat are a great place to start! After a shower, after a workout and before bed are all great times to mist! Mist at least once a day (or more!). Many users toss it in their purse or gym bag to spritz throughout the day.
The Mother Dirt Face & Body Cleanser is a foaming formula that cleans without removing good bacteria from your skin. We’ve long believed any bacteria on the skin is harmful, but that’s not the case. There truly are important oils and good skin bacteria that shouldn’t be removed. This cleanser easily removes dirt, oil, and makeup without drying or stripping the skin.
The Mother Dirt Face and Body Cleanser is suitable for dry, oily, and sensitive skin types. Use like you would any other face cleanser or body wash, focusing on key areas that actually get sweaty and dirty. It can also be used as a makeup remover and shaving cream.
This cleanser enhances the results of the Mother Dirt AO+ Mist. It is preservative-free, fragrance-free, kid-friendly and plant-based. It’s also hypoallergenic, and clinically- and allergy-tested.
If you use the cleanser as a facial wash only (just one pump), it will last 2+ months, and a little goes a long way.
Cleanser Ingredients: Water, Lauramidopropyl Betaine (plant-based cleanser), Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Decyl Glucoside (plant-based cleanser), Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Glycerin (moisture-binding), Hydrolyzed Quinoa (moisture-binding), Hydroxypropylcellulose (thickener), Citric Acid (pH stabilizer)
Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty and treat your skin well!
