You may have stumbled upon this page in search of Mother Dirt Reviews on one of their several products, or you may have found this page on accident. In either case, my hope is that by providing you with my personal experience with the product and the company Mother Dirt, you will leave here better informed to make a personal decision to try one of their amazing products.
This summer, I happened to be surfing the web looking for updates in the skin care world when I came across a company called Mother Dirt. My first thought was "what a bold and unusual name for a company!" I decided to click on their website and learn more about them. The more I read, the more curious I became to try one of their products. They kept on talking about our "skin biome" and how it important it was to have a special group of bacteria on our skin called Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB) to improve the overall health of our skin. Their hallmark product is the Mother Dirt AO+ Mist for Face and Body, which literally has live bacteria within the spray bottle that you spray onto your body as a mist! You can find out more information about our skin biome and AOB HERE.
OMG! Bacteria On My Skin!
I think most people's reaction to spraying live bacteria on your body probably wouldn't be a good one, but I wasn't too concerned about it because AOB are truly good bacteria with no downside and decades of science to prove it! There have never been any reported cases of illness or disease related to the use of AOB. These bacteria are literally incapable of causing an infection on or inside or bodies.
They're naturally regulated by the amount of sweat our body produces, so there is not enough food (aka sweat) in a given area for all the AOBs, they will starve and die. This specific sweat mechanism is one of the many processes at play that prevent AOB from causing an infection.
AOB have elaborate, delicate cell membranes so they are very sensitive to chemicals. As a result, any use of conventional soaps or detergents is very likely to wipe them right out! The reason why this is a problem is because without the "good" bacteria present (AOB), the "bad" bacteria on our skin are able to have a stronger presence, which causes challenges in the long term.
For this reason, the suggested use is to apply the AO+ Mist spray after showering, applying conventional products, swimming in pools, etc. This is what I personally do every morning after my shower. Once I've finished drying off and applying moisturizer to my body, I spray my body all over. It's actually quite an invigorating experience! If you haven't completely waken up by the end of your shower, this will likely do it.
Within a week or two of using the AO+ Mist, I noticed a definite improvement in my overall skin health! My skin felt more moisturized and my natural oils were more in check. I honestly haven't had the overall complexion of my body look this good in years. It's been very exciting.
Given that the price tag is a little hefty, being $49, I've gone to using the AO+ Mist from every day to every other day or whenever I feel like I need it after I've been sweating profusely (ie gym workout). I haven't really noticed a decrease in product effectiveness by making this change.
One of the main goals of the company with this product is to enable the product user to either add this product into their current skin regimen, or perhaps reduce the number of other skin care products you feel are necessary after beginning the AO+ Mist. For example, there have been some users that have claimed to decrease or eliminate altogether their use of deodorant. However, given that I'm a guy and pretty active, I still use my normal amount of deodorant. However, if your lifestyle or career allows for that type of deodorant experiment, I say why not?
Package Delivered in Style!
When you order the AO+ Mist from Mother Dirt, it is delivered to you in pharmaceutical-grade packaging that keeps the product in the ideal temperature range. Since AOB does not do well with preservatives, the product has a unique expiration date.
Product Storage: The Choice is Yours
It is important to realize you have two main options for product storage, depending on your preference. You can either store the product at room temperature, in which case you should use the product by 4 weeks from when you receive it.
Or, you can keep the product refrigerated, and have up until the expiration date listed on the bottle to use it. This is typically between the 5-6 month range.
I personally keep mine refrigerated because I enjoy the cool mist on my body in the mornings when I'm getting ready for work. But, if the cool spray is too much for you, you can consider keeping it at room temperature instead.
Mother Dirt is truly an amazing, genuine, science-based company dedicated to maintaining full transparency to the ingredients they use when formulating their biome-friendly products. In fact, they are MADE SAFE certified with the official seal to verify that the AO+ Mist is free of any chemicals known to harm human health or the environment. This is one of many examples proving their amazing track record and commitment to their customers and the environment.
Mother Dirt is partnered with AOBiome, which is their research partner dedicated to researching the skin microbiome and more specifically the role of Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB). AOBiome is studying the potential therapeutic applications that reintroducing AOB on skin may have on skin health.

- If you feel like you can't reduce your current skin care regimen to make room for AO+ Mist, adding the product onto your current regimen may feel overwhelming (adding a little extra time to your morning routines)
- It is recommended you apply the AO+ Mist last after you've done everything else so that the AOB can work on your skin and not die! They are very sensitive bacteria to other more conventional skin care products. This can prove to be annoying sometimes.
Overall, I feel like this company is providing a revolutionary skin care product that I think will continue to become more popular and mainstream as more and more people find out about it. I have been using the product for 3 months now and have continued to have improved skin health and improved complexion. I would definitely recommend the AO+ Mist to anybody willing to try a more unconventional skin care product.
My Overall Rating: 9.5/10
