Because preservatives function to prevent bacterial growth in formulas, there are no preservatives in any of the formulas.
On the skin, they have a big impact on the bacterial ecosystem. Because Mother Dirt does not use preservatives, their products have a shelf life. No refrigeration necessary. Mother Dirt sources pure, unpreserved raw ingredients.
Best used by
8 weeks after opening.
DO I NEED TO REFRIGERATE IT? The cleanser is not temperature sensitive. While refrigeration will give you a cool lather, it will not extend the shelf life, which is 8 weeks after the first pump of the bottle.
DOES THE CLEANSER CONTAIN LIVE BACTERIA? The cleanser does not contain live AOB, but it's specifically formulated to nurture the good bacteria that you get from your AO+ Mist, keeping your scalp biome healthy.
CAN I STILL USE MY SHAVING CREAM, AND/OR MOISTURIZER? Yes. We'll never recommend that you abandon products you love. We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you. As best practice, we recommend applying the Mist as the very last step in your cleansing and skincare routine, after all other products have had a moment to absorb.
Mother Dirt Shampoo and Cleanser were designed specifically to be compatible with the AO+ Mist, and most off-the-shelf products are not considered biome-friendly. Some oils, such as coconut oil, are biome-friendly (as long as they are preservative and added-fragrance free), and will not harm the good bacteria on the skin.
IS THE CLEANSER SCENTED? The Cleanser has a very light scent of rosewater (one of the ingredients).
IS THE CLEANSER OKAY TO USE ON MY KIDS? The Cleanser and Mother Dirt products are safe for use on children. Our ingredients are on each of the product pages, please feel free to run them by a pediatrician or doctor if you would like.
