We've long believed that bacteria on the skin are harmful. This has shaped our products and routines so that bacteria cannot live on the skin.

As we've gotten "cleaner", we're having more problems with our skin. The issues we are seeing today are virtually non-existent in less developed parts of the world.


Just like our gut needs good bacteria to be healthy, the same is true for our skin. Science is showing that modern chemistry and lifestyles have removed crucial bacteria from our skin.


Live probiotic spray that improves the look and feel of your skin. Contains live Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria, a microorganism that once lived on our skin but has been removed with modern hygiene and lifestyles.


This shampoo is formulated to help keep the ecosystem of the scalp and hair in balance. Your hair will need less and look better. Safe for color treated hair.



Gentle formula for the face and body that cleans without removing good bacteria. Users also find the foamy texture works great at removing makeup and/or as a shaving cream.


Shake before each use. Focus on sweat prone areas. Mist twice a day or more (after showering, before workouts, and even before bed).


Use on wet hair, lather up, and rinse. (and it does lather!) 20% users find they can skip conditioner altogether. Those with thicker or curlier hair typically still need it. Find what works for you.


Use on the face and body, just like you would any cleanser or body wash. Pump into your hands, lather onto wet skin, and rinse. Less is more - no need to lather up every square inch.



• Restores Natural Balance

• Improves oily & dry skin

• Helps sensitive skin

• Skin is softer, smoother

Every ingredient and formula is screened with a unique process we've developed to ensure it is friendly to the ecosystem of the skin, the skin microbiome.


The most sensitive bacteria we test with are AOBs (the same bacteria found in the AO+ Mist) AOBs play a keystone role in the skin's ecosystem.


It's not just about skin care, it's about skin health. This is why our research partner, AOBiome, is dedicated to clinical research on AOBs as a treatment for skin disorders.

Our mission is to develop products that restore and nurture the skin biome. To do this, we had to develop strict criteria and processes for ingredient selection, formulation, packaging, and manufacturing.

We use AOB as our core measurement for testing biome-friendliness. Here's what that means: AOB are one of the most sensitive microorganisms on our skin. Because of this, we believe by formulating a product that's friendly to AOB means that it will also be friendly to the other delicate microorganisms of the biome as well.

We've developed a patent-pending assay that we use to screen all our ingredients and the final formula to ensure that it's A-OK for AOBs.
One of our early findings was that preservatives have a negative affect on AOB. This shouldn't be surprising because preservatives exist for the sole purpose of preventing bacteria and other microorganisms from growing in products. No wonder AOB didn't do well with preservatives, and why you won't find them in our formulas.

In theory, the motivation for including preservatives is a good one, but at the time, we didn't know what potential effect preservatives have on our skin biome. This is a new factor to consider.
This goes beyond our screening process. When sourcing ingredients, we've found many raw materials on their own already come with a preservative. We had to be very careful about our process to make sure we were always starting with unpreserved raw materials.
We develop products that nurture and feed a living ecosystem, without ingredients meant to inhibit or kill. This is why our products all come with an expiration date that's counted in weeks, not years.
We had to recreate parts of this process. We manufacture and package our products with strict criteria to ensure that they are 100% pure when they arrive at your door.

Our packaging is selected for maximal protection of the product inside, requiring us to use pharmaceutical grade packaging for products like the AO+ Mist. We include an expiration date on each product so that you know when to discard them.

AO+ Mist

Do I need to refrigerate it?
We recommend storing your mist in the refrigerator prior to first use. Refrigerating your AO+ Mist will keep it potent and active for 6 months.

Once you open your AO+ Mist, it's OK to leave it at room temperature, and keep it handy for use. After 4 weeks at room temperature, the bacteria will start to lose activity. Most people find that it takes them 3 - 4 weeks to use a bottle of AO+ Mist.

What if my AO+ Mist arrives and it's warm or hot?
While Mother Dirt shipments may not always arrive feeling very cold, they should not be very warm or hot either. The bacteria can withstand higher temps (remember they come from nature where some temperatures reach very high), but we do take precautions with our packaging to protect the product from extreme temperatures encountered in-transit (such as sitting in a truck on a hot day).

What if the AO+ Mist doesn't work for me?
We know that everyone's microbiome is unique, and as a result, not everyone will respond the same way. Let us know if it's not working for you and we'll issue a refund.

Can I continue to use soap and other products while using the AO+ Mist?
Yes. We'll never recommend that you abandon products you love. (Some of us at Mother Dirt still stick by our favorite conditioner, makeup, and natural deodorant.) We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you. As best practice, we recommend applying the AO+ Mist as the very last step in your skincare routine, after all other products have had a moment to absorb.

Mother Dirt Shampoo and Face & Body Cleanser were designed specifically to be compatible with the AO+ Mist, and most off-the-shelf products are not considered biome-friendly. Some oils, such as coconut oil, are biome-friendly (as long as they are preservative and added-fragrance free), and will not harm the good bacteria on the skin.

Is the AO+ Mist okay to use on my kids?
The AO+ Mist and Mother Dirt products are safe for use on children. Our ingredients are on each of the product pages, please feel free to run them by a pediatrician or doctor if you would like.

What if I want to remove the AO+ Mist from my skin once I've applied it?
If for any reason you would like to remove the AO+Mist from the skin, it can easily be removed with conventional soap and warm water.

Does the AO+ Mist have a scent?
The AO+ Mist has no scent.


Do I need to refrigerate it?
The shampoo is not temperature sensitive. While refrigeration will give you a cool lather, it will not extend shelf life, which is 6 months after the first pump of the bottle.

Does the shampoo contain live bacteria?
The shampoo does not contain live AOB, but it's specifically formulated to nurture the good bacteria that you get from your AO+ Mist.

I dye my hair, can I use the shampoo?
Absolutely! The shampoo is safe for color treated hair.

Can I still use my conditioner?
20% of users find that they don't need to use conditioner with the shampoo. However, if you find that you need to use it - no problem! Just keep the conditioner away from the roots and it's all good.

Is the Shampoo scented?
The Shampoo has a very light scent of rosewater (one of the ingredients).

Is the Shampoo okay to use on my kids?
The Shampoo and other Mother Dirt products are safe for use on children. Our ingredients are on each of the product pages, please feel free to run them by a pediatrician or doctor if you would like.

Face & Body Cleanser

Do I need to refrigerate it?
The cleanser is not temperature sensitive. While refrigeration will give you a cool lather, it will not extend the shelf life, which is 8 weeks after the first pump of the bottle.

Does the cleanser contain live bacteria?
The cleanser does not contain live AOB, but it's specifically formulated to nurture the good bacteria that you get from your AO+ Mist, keeping your scalp biome healthy.

Can I still use my shaving cream, and/or moisturizer?
Yes. We'll never recommend that you abandon products you love. We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you. As best practice, we recommend applying the Mist as the very last step in your cleansing and skincare routine, after all other products have had a moment to absorb.

    I have gone through about three or four bundle packages now, and I really do like all of the products. The only downside is what other people have already said: they are expensive for the amount of product you get. I get close to a month out of every product, (I see some people saying they last only a week or two) but yes I think spending $70 a month on shower products is kind of crazy. Especially if it doesn’t last a month for you. I tend to use these products only every other day or every couple of days just because I can’t justify paying that much money. But if you don’t have an issue with the price, then I completely recommend them. With the mist, I feel like I can go much longer without deodorant before I can detect any smell. Kind of odd at first, but it does really work if u ask me.

    The products seems to be perfect. I get it as gift. I was really suprised how good my skin feel. BUT: All say the same. The price. In the video someone says to change the minds and go back more naturally. But you start on the wrong side of the society. If you would give all people, not only the people with money, the chance to overthinking there waterwaste and cleaning illusions: it would really change the world. Now is it a product only for good earner … it would be sad this wonderful product its only a one-hit wonder. And not only in the US. Searching for sponsoring and cooperation is not so difficult. My best wishes.

    Big negative, all the products: there is waaaay too much one-time use packaging involved. The actual products inside the crappy packaging are great. The face wash and bacteria based spray really worked wonders (and quickly-less than a week) for my terrible skin, something doctor visits and any number of skin care products could never help with–for those looking at the product cost, yes, it is worth it. I’m so-so on the shampoo, but I have very fine limp “white-people” hair that has been bleached and colored to death, so nothing is going to do miracles to it 🙂

    Every once in awhile on a whim I will try some interesting new thing I hear about, and it happens that this time I tried Mother Dirt. I’m in my 2nd month of using the Bundle and I can say that so far I like it. After about a week I noticed that my skin was slightly softer, and almost seemed slightly greasy but without the issues usually associated with greasy skin. I work out 3-4 times a week and only once did my workout partner say something about odor, so now I’ll give a spray to each armpit before working out(I do very little cardio). The shampoo seemed to work fine, I can’t really tell if my hair is any better than it was before, but I guess the shampoo isn’t killing the bacteria. The cleanser works well, but sadly I ran out before the 4 week expiration. I don’t think I used a lot of it, just cleaning my face, crotch region, armpits and feet with maybe 4ish pumps total per shower. I’m paying on a ludicrous amount of loans, so sadly I don’t think the $80ish pricetag is something I can sustain much longer. $20 for soap and shampoo for a 4 week period is something I cannot do. I am considering just using the bacteria spray but it will take research to figure out what to do in terms of shampoo or soap if I go that route. Anyway, I think it’s worth trying out.

    I’ve had problems with me skin for…let’s see…close to 20 years now. That’s 20 years of experimentation. Which gives me a lot of time to have used a TON of cleansers, creams, moisturizers, serums, and prescriptions. I bought Mother Dirt back when it was still AO Biome, on a whim. Low and behold, they completely changed my skin in the very best way. My complexion was really sick and tired of decades of harsh chemicals, but I was so afraid to stop – what if things got worse?! For whatever reason I put my faith into the science behind this product and I am so happy I did. My skin looks healthy & happy. The things that plagued me are gone. I get the occasional break out here and there but I always have and honestly it’s no worse than it was when I used two different prescription creams every day (and had the peeling and inflammation that went with them). If you’re struggling with your skin as an adult and have skin that’s super sensitive after years of fighting with it, please please try this system and see if it helps you the same way it did me!

    Love it! Have not used deodorant since I started using the cleanser. And, deodorant never really lasted long enough for me anyway. So wonderful to know that it is safe and natural too. The shampoo is great for me, I swim a lot and it takes and sand and salt out of my hair like no shampoo has been able to. Thank you Mother D.

    I believe that if you deliver more product at a lower price, or AT LEAST more product at the same price, with improved bottles, you would see your sales SkyRocket!

    I really like the product, HOWEVER….. The bottles/dispensers for the shampoo and body wash were so small with very little product!! The dispender for the shampoo broke and I felt was very ineffective. I only got a few uses out of it! Not worth the $69 ! It’s extremely unfortunate because I really liked the product, and I REALLY want to buy some more- but I just CAN’T bring myself to pay that much for those ineffective bottles with such little product! That is the ONLY thing keeping me from buying more. If the bottles were improved and delivered more product to make it worth the money I would absolutely buy more and this could possibly become my and children’s only bathing products. Please fix!! (so I can buy more and become a loyal customer!!)

    The product is great! Besides the helpful bacteria, the body cleansing product and the shampoo are very good…no harsh chemicals…and if you get the shampoo in your eyes, no burning…seems more gentle than Johnson’s Baby Shampoo without the sodium laurate which kills the healthful bacteria..

    I enjoyed the products, but really, they are for wealthy people. I purchased the bundle, which came to $78 (including shipping). The problem is the products don’t last very long, as follows:
    Face & Body Cleanser: 1 week
    AO+ Mist: 2 weeks
    Shampoo: 2 1/2 weeks
    This is for one person. I have a wife and kids. If you do the math, this does not scale for families. I could feel a positive difference, but I cannot afford to keep it up (and I make well over $100 K per year). You make a great product for the wealthy.

    Love the shampoo. Some of the comments said that it does not lather enough. I have found that it lathers great! The Face & Body Cleanser works great. I love that there is no fragrance. I spray the AO+Mist as directed but have found I still need to use a deodorant. But I spray it in my arm pits anyway after I have applied a deodorant. I think I will use the natural salt stick for deodorant and then spray, also. Skin is softer and I do not need to apply moisturizer. I used to shampoo almost every day but now shampoo twice a week, even with working out and being very active. Hair stays soft and manageable. I will order the bundle again!

    I got the bundle as a gift this past November after mentioning that it may help with my persistent problematic skin. I gave up my conventional products cold turkey and after a month of use my skin has made improvements; any issues occur less frequently and clear up in a few days. Unfortunately my body odor was much too unpleasant so I had to start using conventional deodorant again. The shampoo and cleanser also worked great. I think for the future i will focus using the mist just on my face.
    One suggestion that I do have is putting a suggested number of sprays per area for the mist. I couldn’t find one and I ended up using my months supply in about 2.5 weeks.

    I switched completely, cold turkey and the bundle was a great way to get started. For the first few orders I ordered the bundle until I got a feel for how long each product works for me. I now order individual products to match my usage. I love using all of the products that came with the bundle and can not turn back. I used regular soap by accident once and my hands actually felt horrible. This is great stuff and I highly recommend it.

    I wouldn’t consider myself a hippie by any stretch (I still use bleach for cleaning the house, to be honest!), so I was surprised when this caught my eye. I was even more surprised when I was thinking about it… four days later. So I ordered the kit. I would say you don’t need the extra stuff (shampoo and face/body wash) but they’re good for the transition. I only use the spray now, and even though I have to get my curly hair wet or I look like Doc from Back to the Future, that doesn’t mean I have to shower every day. I don’t use soap in the shower anymore, and I haven’t used deodorant since I started this.

    I have been using the bundle for about 3 months now and the results are better than expected. After only a couple of days I noticed my skin feels softer, especially my face. I take shorter and fewer showers too. Just a real quick scrub with the shampoo and cleanser in the morning or after a workout.

    After years of reading about probiotics and following research on the gut microbiome, applying those same principles to our skin makes perfect sense. Getting started is easy, I just switched out my old shampoo and bar soap for the Mother Dirt products and added the Mist to my morning and evening routine. At this point I plan to continue my subscription indefinitely.

    I have been using the shampoo, the cleanser, and the mist for about 2 months now. My skin feels much smoother these days. With the colder weather now I still need a light skin oil for dryness sometimes, but I’ve stopped using commercial moisturizer completely. My hair is softer and I can skip a day of washing which I couldn’t do before without my hair looking limp and oily. I also use the cleanser and mist under my arms. I used to struggle with body odor even while using strong commercial antiperspirants, now I have almost no problem with body odor, which is great. I love using these products!

    Let me start by saying that this product is pretty amazing! I had rough, problem skin on my shins that has been there for about 8-10 years. I compare it to athletes foot, but on my shins directly under my knees. In the past, I would clean this area with soap and use lotions with zero positive effect. I started using Mother Dirt 2 weeks ago and I’m very happy with the feel and appearance of my skin! I am astonished that this product worked so quickly and basically solved my problem that has been dogging me for 8 years in about 1 week of me spraying the area with the AO+ Mist.

    I first heard about this product about 2 weeks ago at the Bulletproof Conference in Pasadena. I was skeptical at first, it seemed like a bit of a strange idea, and I am very particular about what I put on my skin. I have extremely sensitive skin, and have to be very careful about the ingredients in my cosmetic products. I even have to get special laundry soap or I break out in a rash. After speaking with their staff at the conference, I was convinced that I may as well give it a try.

    After around 2 weeks, I am shocked that I can see such a difference in my skin! The skin on my face looks so clean and bright. I have stopped wearing foundation all together. (I used to use a mineral powder to even out my skin tone.) I no longer feel like I need it at all. I have had many people complement me on my skin recently. I am told I look radiant, and that I have great skin.

    I would highly recommend this product to anyone who just wants to have overall nicer skin. I will definitely be using it daily from now on.

    I read about the company in the press quite a while back and then followed up when the product was launched. I’m about 3 months into trying the three items in the bundle. First let me say that the company itself provides excellent customer service and is keen to get your feedback, as this is a rather new kind of product. I’m still not sure what my long term results will I can describe my experience thus far. One positive result is that I have learned that one does NOT need to use so many abrasive cleansers on the hair and body, and indeed that we don’t need as many showers as most of us are accustomed to take. I stopped using regular soap immediately after receiving my first bundle and have not used any for 3 months. At first I felt like I needed a lot of the cleanser to get “clean” and went through it quickly. Soon I learned to use considerably less of it (even so, however, it’s hard to stretch the bottle to a month). Then I discovered that often a mere shower rinse without soap works quite well (but not always). Curiously, this seems to be especially the case after sweaty exercise. Rather than soap, a rinse works well on those occasions. So, while that insight isn’t directly related to AO+, it’s a consequence of this learning process. Similarly, I have cut way back on shampooing, with very good results. Now, the shampoo bottle can easily last the month. So on the cleaning front, much less use of cleansers in general (and certainly not abrasive one), and skipping a shower here and there. Now, as for deodorant: I rarely use it anymore and when I do, a natural one. Here again, a curious result is that sometimes the deodorant seems to aggravate B.O. now. Notwithstanding, there are times when the B.O. can get powerful, and the cleanser doesn’t quite remove it, so that’s something I’m still figuring out. As for the AO+ mist, I do find that it too doesn’t easily last a month. I don’t think I’m excessive in my usage, but I guess I need to learn better how to “mist” it (on that topic, I wish the spray head had some kind of finger indent that would help me know the directionality of the spray by touch). I need more time to consider it’s effect on my skin as I have had some problems with dryness (before I started using it) so it’s hard to separate out symptoms. Something else I’ve learned is that hot showers are bad news as they strip the natural oils (and perhaps good bacteria). Since stopping the use of hot water just a few days ago, I’ve seen dramatic improvement in the dryness, so now I’ll want to evaluate the AO+ under these new circumstances. Taking a star away from the review may be a bit unfair — it’s basically because I seem to need more cleanser than the 1-month supply (although someone else here says it’s too much), and perhaps less shampoo, and because I’d like to see a new spray-head on the mist bottle, and perhaps a bit more mist for the month. That said, it may just be me who needs to adjust, Mother Dirt presumably having carefully determined bottle sizes.

    Two months in and things are going really well – my skin is soft and not irritated like it is by everything else. My son, who I bought this for initially because he has super sensitive skin and eczema, and is allergic to ingredients in most soaps and shampoos, and has battled fungal scalp irritation and infections repeatedly, can tolerate all of the products well too – so I can’t thank you enough!

    Like many other reviewers, I read about the product in Bloomberg magazine. I was very captivated and interested in replacing the many, and I mean many products that I use on my face, body and hair. I am middle age, very active and live in Florida (lots of sweat and heat). Here are my results after only one week: My facial skin is perfectly balanced, no oily spots and no dry areas. I conducted a science experiment on myself by playing tennis, running, walking dogs and only showering with water and using Mother Dirt and its shampoo for my hair. I was amazed that I had no body odor and my hair was bouncy and happy! I also learned that I could spritz between sports if I felt that i was overworking these “little miracles” in the bottle.

    In short, I am a customer for life.

    P.S. Ladies, do not deprive your hair and scalp of a spritz or two. You will love the results.

    I first read about Mother Dirt products in Bloomberg Magazine. I ordered all three; the mist, shampoo and cleanser and have been using all three for about a month. I used to shampoo daily which left my hair striped of its natural oils. Now I shampoo every other day with fantastic results. My hair is soft and shiney. The cleanser and mister are used after I shower and my skin also feels much smoother and softer. These are great products!

    My friend John Durant turned us onto the AO+Mist product months ago and in the weeks we have gone without it (since we ran out) I have noticed differences in how my skin feels and looks, for the worse. Our family only uses personal care products that we could eat (in terms of composition) so we are happy to have such a natural addition to our personal care routine.

    I have been using the mist ever since the New York Times ran an article about it. It is the finest overall product the I have ever used for my complexion. And, over the years, I had tried just about everything. AO + Mist makes my complexion look and feel good.

    More recently, I started using the Mother Dirt body cleanser and shampoo. They both are great complements to the mist. Now, I cleanse both my hair and body followed up with the mist. The results are fantastic. My skin never looked so good!

    I’m a big heavy dude so I sweat a lot. I can’t use anti-perspirants because my glands swell from the aluminum so I depend on deodorant. I’ve always wanted a more natural solution, so I tried the crystal deodorant and that didn’t work out to well.

    As soon as I heard about this stuff on the fabulous ‘Transistor’ podcast, II immediately ordered the 3-Pack and have never smelled better. Seriously. I don’t know if I smell better going into the shower or coming out, this stuff has just gotten better. I stopped shampooing my hair (what I have left of it anyway) a few years back so my oils keep that in check, so I don’t use the shampoo as much but it would be great for if I get some “Mother Mud” in my hair. The face wash is also amazing.

    Love it, love everything about it.

    This is not a magic elixir..but it IS impressive. Particularly in that the less you wash (and the more you spray) the better you smell! Even soapless washing washes off the AO critters. That’s rather remarkable, no? My skin is still dry and requires moisturizing, but as stated, this is not an elixir. Aside from the deodorizing properties of this amazing product, it has also cleared up my once irritated complexion. Thank you, Mother AO Biome Dirt!!

    I’ve been using this product about 9 months and I’m happy with the results. I no longer use soap or deodorant on my face or body (I do use soap to cleanse my hands of any pathogens). My dry skin is moister than before and I no longer use lotion or skin creams. Previously I had difficulty with the skin on my perineum getting dry and raw from soap, and now that is not an issue, the skin has healed. The philosophy of restoring a more natural ecology to the skin biome makes sense to me, and AOBiome has done a good job of telling that story. Thank you, AOBiome.

    It’s about time we wake up to the fact that we’ve been fighting the good guys all along. So many unknown chemicals in skin care products these days which just kill and remove everything on our skin in an effort to keep us clean. I’ve been a loyal AO+ Mist user since the beginning and I swear by it as a deodorizer and skin health restorer. Commit to it for a week and you’ll see the results. The deodorizing effects are instant and the life it gives back to your skin you’ll begin to see after only a couple of days! Excited to see the many health benefits that come of restoring our natural skin and body biome. Great job AO for ushering a change of mentality.

    Just can’t get enough of this amazing shampoo
    My scalp is the first place my body shows any stress, with red tenderness and flaking… Even after the first four days of using the shampoo no more signs of sensitive scalp or flaking..

    I have been using AO Biome for 5 weeks now and have noticed a big difference in the look and feel of my skin, particularly on my face. I am in my mid-50s and for the past year, had been experiencing extremely dry skin on my face. There wasn’t a moisturizer I could find that would combat the dryness without clogging my pores. Since using AO Biome, I no longer use any product other than water on my face (no soap, moisturizers, wrinkle cream, anti-aging products, etc). My face is no longer dry and scaly. My large pores seem to be smaller and my skin is softer! I spritz AO Biome on my entire body in the morning after waking, and then in the evening before bed. Since doing this, I’ve been able to reduce my showers to one every other day. This is truly amazing because, living in the hot, humid weather of Florida summers, I used to shower up to 3x a day! Here’s an example: I had not showered for 2 days, and went to a friend’s house to help her put up a bird feeder. I was standing “downwind” of her and out of the blue she commented, “You smell so GOOD!” I am so pleased with AO Biome and would recommend the product to anyone.

    Like many other people, I heard about AO+ on NPR and saw the subsequent NYTimes article. I have always thought we are using way to many unnatural chemicals in our everyday lives from cooking ingredients to cleaning products. I never had any skin problems aside from minor acne, but it is refreshing to use bacteria to fight skin odor issues. Without soap and shampoo, my skin is softer and my hair is stronger. You won’t be disappointed with the results.

    As a curly-haired girl who always uses “curly” formulated shampoos and conditioners, I was a little bit worried about this “one-kind-fits-all” shampoo. Would it be good for curly hair? The answer is a resounding yes!!! My curls love this shampoo – it is gentle, but gets my hair and scalp clean. Works great with the mist (which is great on my scalp) – I love the combination! My new favorite shampoo!

    I like it! My only comment is that it’s too much cleanser to use within the expiration time period. I want to be eco friendly and minimize packaging and shipping etc, but don’t like the idea of having to throw out product. And since I’m showering less these days (thank you Mist!) I think I’m going to have a lot left over. I will update this review when my cleanser and shampoo expire.

    I have been using the mist for about a year and have found it to do a much better job than soap or deodorant which I used to use for washing up underarms, feet and private areas. I have very dry skin and do not want to shower or bathe too often. The mist lets me accomplish that by keeping me clean and sweet smelling for many days. I use the mist once a day and feel very clean with that frequency. During very hot days I might need to mist my under arms an additional time but that has always been enough to take care of the extra sweat. I love this product and can’t think of going back to my old soap and deodorant days. I also have been using the cleanser and shampoo and am also thrilled with them. Thank you AO Biome for developing these wonderful products.

    I was SO excited to finally order this. I’ve spent years&years with acne, eczema, itchy dry skin and really bad pit BO (for a lady it’s pretty gross and I use men’s deodorant) I found that soap and acne products make things so much worse so switching to natural products has really helped-but now I need something to repair the damage. After just a few days my skin feels so soft, smells better and I went deodorant free yesterday. Which is a big deal for me especially at work. At first the smell was gross but when I climbed into bed at the end of the day I was amazed that my pits smelled…good. I honestly didn’t expect it to tackle that issue so well. I look forward to my new “colony” of helpful friends!

    Just started using the shampoo and it is so wonderful. I can’t say enough about how good it is. My hair feels soft and very clean without feeling like it has been stripped of all life. Have been using the body and facial wash for a couple of weeks and have the same opinion – thinking it is so very great. I feel as if I am clean without being stripped of all the natural oils my body wants to protect me with. I will definitely want to use these products over and over again. Thank you for making such a superior product.

    These products are great! The shampoo cleans but doesn’t strip and I only use it about every other day with no oily look at all in between. I don’t use a conditioner. The body wash cleans effectively as well but doesn’t leave your skin oily or with any residue. I love them both and it’s great they have no scent. Neither product seems to sting the eyes if you get a little in. Each bottle goes a long way

    I love these products! They are both gentle but effective. The cleanser is a light foaming cleanser – it has a nice foam that is great for face and body (I sometimes use it for shaving too). The shampoo is a thicker gel, easy to use. Neither products have any fragrance, but they both have a very light, natural, scent that reminds me of grapefruit. They leave my skin and scalp feeling clean but not stripped dry. Love!
