Key Ingredients and Benefits
Affipore is a plant based ingredient that directly acts on sebocyte (oil producing) stem cells to reduce excess oil and enlarged pores. Affipore is clinically proven to reduce pore volume and oil secretion.
Mandelic Acid is an AHA which effectively addresses a range of conditions including hyperpigmentation, acne and fine lines. Mandelic acid acts as both a mild exfoliant and as an antibacterial agent and is well tolerated by nearly all skin types including rosacea sufferers and darker Fitzpatrick skin types. Its antibacterial and sebum regulating properties prove helpful in the treatment of acne.
Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate is a regulator of oil that provides hydration and reduces inflammation that can cause pigmented scars.
Lactic Acid a natural and biocompatible AHA for effective removal of dead skin cells that is responsible for skin congestion. It also improves skin hydration levels.
Manuka Essential Oil is derived from the Manuka tree and has been used for centuries in Maori tribes for wound healing. It is up to 33 times more potent than tea tree oil as an antibacterial agent, reducing the P.acnes bacteria associated with acne.
Salicylic Acid is a BHA and essentially a ‘bottle brush’ for the pores, it is able to draw oil and cell debris out of the congested skin follicles.
Aloe Vera helps calm acne lesions and skin irritation.
Lemongrass Essential Oil helps target and reduces P.acne bacteria.
