LET'S START AT THE BEGINNING:
What does the untouched biome look like? Untouched by modern chemistry and lifestyles. Is this the epitome of the healthy biome? Researchers are still trying to answer these questions.
We're starting to get a better sense of it now. Some researchers have been able to study the biomes of aboriginal tribes, untouched by modern society. Their findings as it relates to the skin biome show a lot of diversity, lack of modern skin issues, as well as the presence of AOBs (the keystone bacteria our platform is based on).
CHEMISTRY & LIFESTYLE:
Modern living certainly has its perks, but the hygiene habits and our growing obsession with cleanliness & sterility that have come with it have created a difficult environment for many beneficial organisms to survive within our skin biome.
Furthermore, because much of our biomes are shaped by our natural environment, urban living has made it difficult for us to re-establish or maintain beneficial bacteria that we'd be regularly exposed to in nature.
WHY IT'S A PROBLEM:
These modern chemistry and lifestyle shifts have undermined this ecosystem, making it less diverse and leaving us more susceptible to many challenges including sensitivity, irritation and other skin problems.
WHAT WE CAN DO:
We need to embrace the skin for the living ecosystem it is and help it reconnect with the balanced state that it once had. This is why it's our mission to help create products that enhance and protect the skin biome.
We believe restoring and maintaining beneficial bacteria is the answer to healthy skin and a great first step to a healthier lifestyle.
