Customer Question

Question for Microbiologist EXPERT only,
There is a shelf-stable product with an viable Lactobacillus, suspended in sunflower and coconut oil, with a long shelf life at room temp. Regarding bacterial stages, how does a bacteria (in this case anaerobic) survive this long in an undesired environment and without food source? And what does it take to become live and active again. e.g. how can putting this bacteria solution on your skin make it switch from that dormant shelf state, to a state of feeding and multiplying, especially since it's anaerobic.
