The 'Future Flora' kit was designed by Giulia Tomasello to support and grow healthy skin flora.

The unique kits allow women to "grow and harvest living cultures that support intimate health." Namely, women can use this skin flora kit to grow healthy bacteria and put it in their underwear as if it were a sanitation pad. The harvested pad combats and treats common bacteria-related problems that most women deal with at some point -- including yeast infections. The healthy bacteria grows on the vagina when it comes in contact with it and aims to balance out bacteria that is causing infections.

The skin flora kit is an inventive way for women to naturally involve themselves in their own health and become active participants in self-care techniques that were once completely unfamiliar.
