AO Spray inventor David Whitlock claims that soap, shampoo, and deodorant are not necessary to keep yourself clean, and he has even tried to prove his point by not taking a shower in 12 years.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, having healthy microbes in your body is becoming an endangered species due to the overuse of antibiotics. In fact, bacteria have gotten so bad with their resistance to antibiotics that the World Health Organization (WHO) is warning that a post-antibiotic era is almost upon us.
AOBrime is a biotechnology company based out of Cambridge, Massachusetts which is attempting to sell a product called AO Spray. Whitlock claims that a daily spritz of 20 million natural bacteria is enough to make a person’s skin extra soft and also less smelly. He also claims that 12 years of no showers has not harmed him one bit:
“You stop missing it and it gives me a little extra time every day because I don’t have to shower … our ancestors never bathed.”
It’s claimed that AO Spray is a mix of bacteria that our ancient ancestors were supposedly covered in.
Reporter Julia Scott tried out this interesting remedy for a month, but she also took brief three-minute showers without using soap, shampoo, or deodorant. In an interview with ABC News., Scott says her biggest fear was having someone notice when she was out in public:
“I was afraid of sitting down next to someone on a crowded bus and having them gag,” said Scott. Although she was not sure if it was the AO Spray, she also says it effected her skin: “My skin became more soft to the touch and I noticed that my face, which is prone to hormonally-related break-outs, did clear up.”
Would you stop showering completely if there was a clean in a can solution that replaced soap?
