The surface of the Earth is like the surface of our skin. Healthy microorganisms ideally live atop both, competing with harmful bacteria for food and space. These beneficial bacteria, along with our body's natural oils, create the microbiome. Research shows that regular use of antibiotics (bacteria-killing substances) causes gaps to form in our microbiome, which enables toxins to penetrate our skin. Most soaps and lotions contain antibiotic properties. Our mission is to help restore your skin's microbiome, so we infuse our salves with healthy, lab-tested probiotic cultures that will help to restore your microbiome’s population of beneficial bacteria.
