Gently exfoliate, clear pores of bad bacteria & reduce inflammation
Azelaic acid is a multitasking hero ingredient bio-engineered to provide effective consistent results. It is an incredibly mild ingredient with virtually no side effects.
As a keratolytic its main function is softening and breaking up hard outer skin layers preventing the build-up of dead skin cells that form microcomedones (small impactions formed by skin cells that have built up inside the hair follicle wall) - such as blackheads and whiteheads. Azelaic Acid also exhibits significant anti-inflammatory activity in addition to being an effective anti-acne agent.
Kaolin (Cape White Clay)
Absorbs excess oil and prevents pore clogging
Kaolin (or clay as you may know it better) is a soft white clay. Clay is an ingredient that is ideal for treating symptoms associated with oily and acne-prone skin, and its gentle nature makes it suitable for sensitive, oily skin.
Kaolin absorbs excess oil from the skin, reducing shine and bringing better balance. It also draws out impurities from deep within the skin and reduces the appearance of pores - a common issue associated with oily skin.
Repair skin barrier, reduce inflammation and maintain a balanced microbiome
Maintaining a healthy skin microbiome is essential to preventing breakouts. Lactobacillus is a gram-positive bacteria that acts as a probiotic for the skin by producing anti-microbial peptides. Anti-microbial peptides assist in maintaining a balanced microbiome (by fighting the bad, breakout causing bacteria) which contributes to reducing inflammation, and repairing and protecting the skin.
Lactobacillus is clinically proven to reduce inflammation and improve the appearance of acne.
Amino acids and oligosaccharides
Retain moisture and soften skin without oiliness
Removing excess oil and sebum shouldn’t come at the cost of dehydrated skin.
Amino acids and certain sugars or oligosaccharides are humectants that prevent the loss of water and moisture from the skin and help to promote well hydrated, soft, and supple skin.
Natural Essential Oils
Reduce inflammation, balance oiliness, and keep your skin microbiome in check
Essential oils are natural extracts from plants that harness their natural properties. For example, many essential oils are rich sources of antioxidants while others contain antibacterial ingredients that protect against breakouts. Essential oils also help to balance the skin’s sebum production and provide a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect to reduce redness and irritation. They also provide an excellent source of natural fragrance.
