Question no shower- how does this work

http://store.aobiome.com/?product=ao-mist-2#ingredients

Full Ingredients List:

Water, live cultured ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB), disodium phosphate, magnesium chloride.

Learn more:

Live cultured ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB): This is our patented strain of live cultured Nitrosomonas bacteria (Nitrosomonas D23), a type of Ammonia-Oxidizing-Bacteria. Nitrosomonas is a form of “good bacteria” that is able to live on our skin because they consume the ammonia and urea in the sweat on our skin and convert it into beneficial byproducts (nitrite and nitric oxide).

Disodium phosphate: An inorganic salt, buffering agent, pH adjuster and a key component of the buffer solution that the AOB thrive in.

Magnesium chloride: An inorganic salt that is a key component of the buffer solution that the AOB thrive in.

Water: Helps dissolve the salts and keeps the AOBs in a sustainable medium for delivery to the skin.

NY Times article about it: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/ma...ment.html?_r=0

Quote :
... I was Subject 26 in testing a living bacterial skin tonic, developed by AOBiome, a biotech start-up in Cambridge, Mass. The tonic looks, feels and tastes like water, but each spray bottle of AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha, an ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) that is most commonly found in dirt and untreated water. ...
Sounds amazing!

Quote :
... The most extreme case is David Whitlock, the M.I.T.-trained chemical engineer who invented AO+. He has not showered for the past 12 years. ...
Now there is a man who believes in his product!

Quote :
... Meanwhile, I began to regret my decision to use AO+ as a replacement for soap and shampoo. People began asking if I’d “done something new” with my hair, which turned a full shade darker for being coated in oil that my scalp wouldn’t stop producing. ...
Yuck.

Quote :
...
According to Julie Segre, a senior investigator at the National Human Genome Research Institute and a specialist on the skin microbiome, there is a strong correlation between eczema flare-ups and the colonization of Staphylococcus aureus on the skin. Segre told me that scientists don’t know what triggers the bacterial bloom. But if an eczema patient could monitor their microbes in real time, they could lessen flare-ups. “Just like someone who has diabetes is checking their blood-sugar levels, a kid who had eczema would be checking their microbial-diversity levels by swabbing their skin,” Segre said.

AOBiome says its early research seems to hold promise. In-house lab results show that AOB activates enough acidified nitrite to diminish the dangerous methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A regime of concentrated AO+ caused a hundredfold decrease of Propionibacterium acnes, often blamed for acne breakouts. And the company says that diabetic mice with skin wounds heal more quickly after two weeks of treatment with a formulation of AOB.
...
That's actually pretty interesting to me. If this stuff can help control eczema and acne, it will find a niche regardless of greasy hair (folks will adapt and start washing their hair only).

I thought in some situations- $50 - or the cost- might have a practical application.

But you have to apply it to areas of the body- by the time you take your clothes off and go thru the process- why not spend 3 more minutes and get a shower?

I'm not getting nekkid for anything that is going to take 3 minutes or less.
