This line of skin products is suggesting you use bacteria to clean your skin. While this might seem counter-intuitive, skin microbiome company AOBiome launched a range called 'Mother Dirt.' The biome-friendly cosmetics contain live bacteria that used to be essential to the skin's ecosystem. The skin-dwelling bacteria is supposed to eat up odors and sweat.

Using ammonia-oxidizing bacteria, the line of skin products consist of face and body sprays plus alternatives to shampoo. In the future, the firm hopes to develop and release treatments that address acne, rosacea and eczema as well as medical solutions for diabetic ulcers and bacterial vaginosis.

While many believe squeaky clean skin is actually stripping and can result in increased oil production, this approach takes things to a whole other level.
