Mother Dirt Review
I first heard of Mother Dirt when I read an article about a scientist that hadn't showered for 12 years. What the?!
David Whitlock decided after seeing a horse roll in the dirt to stop showering and bathing. I hypothesized that the reason the horse was rolling in the dirt was to put Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria on it's skin. Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria or AOB convert the bad smelling ammonia that comes from sweat and converts it into Nitrite and Nitric Oxide which are good for your skin.
We naturally build and culture these bacteria if we don't kill them off with cleansing products like Shampoo and soap. Mother Dirt allows you to use these products still and culture healthy skin bacteria.
What Made Me Interested?
When I first heard of mother dirt I was working for a concrete company and throughout the day I would be covered in dirt, concrete, oil and diesel. DIRTY! So I would come home, shower and Scrub. Everyday of intense cleaning made my skin extremely dry and itchy (diesel probably didn't help much either). By mid day I smelled terrible despite my consistent showering. It made me wonder what the point of showering was. So David Whitlocks story peaked my interest so I decided to try it for a few days. Don't worry I wasn't going out on the town but rather just working and sleeping round the clock. By the end of the second day I didn't stink! Maybe David was onto something, after all I was covered in dirt.
So the Purchase Was Made
I decided to try Mother Dirt a few year later (present). My sister and I decided to test it out and compare notes. We got the package. It had ice packs and foam for insulation to keep the bacteria cool and alive. The experiment had begun. As I used Mother Dirt I felt like the need for showering was lessened and I tried to not use soap or shampoo and I was already taking cold shower for other reasons, but this would protect the bacteria from the stereotypical hot shower that would kill them. It was awesome my skin cleared up most of its acne, it was less greasy, but moist and resilient. My sister didn't use it consistently enough to really see a difference. My only problem? The fifty dollar price tag! I would get it consistently if it was a little cheaper. But fifty bucks for a life changing experience? Not bad! So if you are curious consider Clicking Here to get more info and to buy your own.
I think that this product will come in handy on the road where the $12 truck stop shower is few and far between!
