The forest soil contains microbes which are beneficial for our wellbeing. Being exposed to these microbes prevents and treats illnesses related to lifestyle, such as asthma and allergies. The University of Helsinki and University of Tampere have developed the Reconnecting Nature™ microbial extract which is scientifically proven to reinforce the immune system. The purpose of the research project was to develop methods to prevent immune disorders, such as many allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases and inflammatory bowel diseases. The Reconnecting Nature™ microbial extract is utilized in the products of the Finnish skincare brands Moi Forest and Luonkos. When brought onto the skin, the good forest microbes strengthen the immune system of the whole body.
