Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

A Chat with Probiotic Action
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Fight off acne with the power of nature. Emerald is a therapeutic breakthrough in the treatment of acne/eczema. Although probiotics have been used internally for many years, now there is Probiotic Action that delivers the probiotic directly to the skin with a unique water based sprayable probiotic.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Why does acne still exist? Today doctors can cure cancers and transplant organs, but they still have trouble getting rid of the pimples and splotches that plague 85% of us. Since I found this probiotic that works directly on the skin, I had the courage to put it on the market, helping many people.
What do you love most about your job?
Receiving thank you mail and testimonials on social media is the most exiting part of my business. Statements like “I LOVE this product" is the reason to continue with this project. Also, per customers request, we are always developing new products such as our unique probiotic moisturizer.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
We received many reactions as to this product doesn't work for me! After a few recommendations like increasing the dosage, be persistent and monitor progress with a weekly picture, they now are loyal customers placing monthly orders of Emerald. As a result, we will implement Auto Recurring Billing.
