Most people know that their skin is an organ — the body’s largest, in fact. And more people are becoming aware of just how much their skin absorbs (hint: everything you put on it!). But did you know that there’s a full-blown ecosystem of tiny bacteria that live on your skin too?
Healthy skin is meant to have a flourishing microbiome. But because most beauty and personal care products are full of toxic chemicals, not only are we upsetting the delicate pH balance of our epidermis (and wreaking havoc inside our bodies at the same time), we’re also decimating our skin’s natural bacterial colonies… which can have major health ramifications, and make it impossible to get the clear, dewy skin we all crave.
That’s why Jasmina Aganovic and the team at Mother Dirt have created the first ever ‘biome-friendly’ product line that proactively restores and preserves the good bacteria naturally found on our skin.
All Mother Dirt products are preservative-free, kid safe and allow consumers to choose products that don’t negatively impact the natural state of their skin or the planet.
If you want answers to your skin issues (and want to find out how to get sexy, glowing, flawless skin) this episode is for you.
