About Mother Dirt
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.
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.

Anywhere you feel you need the hydration! The moisturizer is good for head-to-toe use on an as needed basis. Start with a small drop – less is more, here – and massage into any dry skin areas.
