Product Details


LAST CHANCE - product discontinued; remaining inventory good thru 11/15/22

Traditional skincare has scrubbed, peeled and stripped away the good bacteria on our skin, so Mother Dirt figured out a way to put it back in. AO+ Restorative Mist is a patented and first of its kind product to use truly live and active probiotics for radiant, healthier-looking skin. Discovered by MIT scientists, the revolutionary ingredient, live AOB, interacts with elements naturally found on your skin and in sweat to produce two powerful byproducts - Nitrite and Nitric Oxide - that are essential to a balanced skin microbiome. Designed for all skin types, Mist protects and maintains healthy skin by restoring and balancing your microbiome. 

  • Restores balance to problem, dry, oily, and sensitive skin
  • Improves skin clarity and smoothness
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves the look and feel of dry and uneven skin
  • Improves the appearance of oily skin
  • Combats blemish-causing bacteria
  • Balances pH in the acid mantle

Size: 3.4 fl oz

Use and care:

Shake before use. Apply at least 2-3 spritzes to skin, twice a day. Use as the last step in your routine after all other products (lotions, makeup, SPF, etc.). You can never have too much of a good thing - spritz throughout the day, post-workout or whenever you need a refresh. For best results, use it as part of Mother Dirt's Active Probiotic System. 

Since this product is a live culture and preservative-free, it's important to keep it refrigerated to preserve the probiotics.

A note about shipping: Don’t be concerned about the temperature upon arrival. Room temperature is not harmful to the AOBs in your AO+ Restorative Mist bottle unless it is for extended periods of time (the AOB lose activity after about 4 - 5 weeks at room temp). However, we still use insulated mailers and gel packs to further protect the AO+ Restorative Mist during shipment. Do be sure to get it in the fridge right away so you can maximize the shelf-life.

Review by Rob on 8/2
Effective, recommend a trial.

My experience: This stuff is pretty amazing. I have been using AO Mist and the Mother Dirt shampoo for years now and I am repeatedly impressed. The two have replaced all soap, cleansers and the deodorant I used to use. It completely cancels out body odor for me. I have an inflammatory skin condition that, although thankfully mild to moderate, makes using deodorant and most soaps or shampoos a bad idea. The AO Mist does hasn't caused the skin irritation to resolve but it is blessedly much less since I started using the stuff. (I would guess that is due to replacing the irritants in other stuff rather than some innate anti-inflammatory property but I've read that AO Biome is conducting clinical trials for inflammatory skin diseases.) A lot of regular shampoo or soap will kill the bacteria so I recommend using the shampoo and/or cleanser that Mother Dirt sells which won't reduce the microbial population. I shower regularly and it holds up well with a spritz once or twice a day. If I am in the woods for a week without a shower I am just fine though. Much to the amazement of others - heh!

Bottom line: I recommend this product to friends and family, especially people who ask me what I did to decrease my dermatitis, and it works extremely well. About 1/5 of people I know who have tried it note some residual armpit odor that smells a bit like - oddly enough - hemp. It's not an unpleasant smell to me (sort of earthy and definitely not b.o.) but a couple of those folks switched back to conventional. In one person that smell went away after a while using the mist, so who knows.

All the best!

About Mother Dirt
Mother Dirt’s mission is to restore the skin microbiome, activating the transformative power of probiotics to repair the imbalance caused by traditional skincare - revealing your most biologically balanced and vibrant skin. In 2015, MIT scientists discovered a groundbreaking bacteria, Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB), with the superpower to balance a diverse set of ecosystems, including your skin. It once lived on our skin naturally, until traditional skincare scrubbed, peeled and stripped it away, destroying the vital balance that keeps the biological peace. So when we found a way to biohack it back in, we knew we were onto something revolutionary. Our patented AO+ Restorative Mist is the first of its kind product that not only preserves AOB in its live state, but actively delivers them to skin to effectively restore the skin microbiome. In other words, it keeps the peace so you don’t have to, repairing and restoring all skin types. So whether you’re acne prone or dry, oily or sensitive, you’ll see the same results - improved clarity and glowing, healthier-looking skin.
