    Massachusetts chemical engineer who hasn't showered in 12 years helps launch skin care product line with natural bacteria

    Let's talk dirty.

    A Boston-area chemical engineer is taking an unusual approach to personal hygiene.

    David Whitlock hasn't showered in more than 12 years.

    "No one did clinical trials on people taking showers every day," the MIT graduate told CBS Boston. "So what's the basis for determining that is a healthy practice?"

    Whitlock is working with AOBiome, a Cambridge-based company that uses naturally occurring bacteria in a new line of skin-care products including mists, shampoos and cleaners.

    It may sound like Whitlock would have a hard time getting close to people, but the company says his research could change the way people approach skin care.

    I have not taken a shower in over 12 years.
    Jasmina Aganovic, AOBiome general manager of consumer products, told the Daily News that Whitlock's approach to hygiene is definitely unique. She said the iconoclastic scientist "does not smell," but noted that the company is not recommending people stay away from the shower.

    Water is not harmful to the body, but the company is trying to provide an alternative to the soaps and antibacterials that people use; those products can sterilize us too much, the thinking goes, the point where we aren't getting the healthy benefits of bacteria on the skin.

    "We want people to rethink the hygienic practices of the last several decades and how much we are at war with the microbacterial world," Aganovic said.

    The company's "Mother Dirt" product line contains live ammonia-oxidizing bacteria, which clean and eliminate odor without harming the organisms that are beneficial to the skin, she said. The products contain live AOB, a microorganism found in soil, which consume the irritating components of sweat and transform them into compounds that can actually benefit the skin, she said.

    The eradication of the healthy bacteria leaves the skin vulnerable to such problems as sensitivity and dryness, the company said.

    Whitlock is working with the company's research team to help develop additional products, Aganovic said.

    In the meantime, he won't be showering any time soon.

    Once or twice a year I may skip a day. More than one day and I remember feeling like my hair hurt. I love showering. I could sit in there for an hour. This guy is just a smelly old creep.

    He absolutely smells like a fuckingngarbage can. He doesn't brush his fucking teeth either.

    Just a suggestion for the guys down in Marketing: if you're trying to sell a hygiene product, maybe don't use one of the stinkiest humans on the planet?

    A crazy idea, I know.

    My father married an idiot crazy liberal from California and made her my stepmother. When I was 12, she decided we were killing the planet by using Ivory soap and Prell shampoo (or whatever the hell I used as a kid).

    She purchased a couple of 5 gallon buckets of "all natural" liquid soap and she threw out all of our name brand soaps. Well, since the "all natural" soap didn't have any preservatives, it wasn't long before the liquid soap smelled like death. The bacteria in the soap were eating the fats and dying. Dead stuff smells like dead stuff.

    The crazy woman got into fights with us, forcing us kids to use dead-smelling slop to "bathe" our bodies and hair. I, of course, fought the system and took some real beatings for it.

    A crazy stinky person selling hygiene products would call out to her like the North Star. Thank God that smelly engineer wasn't around when I was a kid. He would've been like Jesus in our household.
