A NY journalist underwent an experiment for AOBiome, which included not showering with soap or shampoo. Instead, she used a daily mist of bacteria.
The tonic, named AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist, was filled with a certain type of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria that is typically found in soil and untreated water.
Scientists at AOBiome think that this bacteria once lived on our skin-along with all the “good” bacteria- before we starting using soap, which washed away the bacteria.
The founder of this haven’t showered in years(while using the product), yet the journalist reports that he neither looked nor smelled unclean.
Pretty interesting, huh? And that’s just the gist of it. Read more here: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/magazine/my-no-soap-no-shampoo-bacteria-rich-hygiene-experiment.html?nav
Let me know what you think of this! I might actually try this in the future myself.
