Invisible to the naked eye, our bodies play host to trillions of microorganisms. Just like our gut relies on good bacteria and probiotics, our skin also relies on good bacteria to keep us healthy. This elaborate ecosystem the skin biome, today faces many challenges. Our obsession with cleanliness & sterility have created a difficult environment for many beneficial organisms to survive. Modern chemistry and lifestyle shifts have undermined this ecosystem, making it less diverse and leaving us more susceptible to sensitivity, irritation and other skin problems. We speak with Jasmina Aganovic, President of Mother Dirt, a start up with a mission to create products that enhance and protect our skin biome restoring and maintaining the beneficial bacteria for healthy skin and a healthier life.
