Jasmina is a beauty industry pioneer who is passionate about translating innovation into meaningful brands that connect us with the miracle of biology. Her previous company, Mother Dirt, included a line of products focused on the skin microbiome. The hero product restores Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB), which current hygiene practices have stripped from the skin. Now, Jasmina is working with the powerful Ginkgo Foundry to see what we can learn from nature and  harness through microbes for use in the personal care industry.  We talk to Jasmina about the incredible potential of this work and how it reminds us that natural, biological intelligence is the oldest and often most reliable intelligence of all.
