Recommended by over 2,000 dermatologists nationwide, this cleanser is effective for eliminating and preventing acne on the face and body.
Let's start with Salicylic Acid... "Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid, which means the hydroxy part of the molecule is separated from the acid part by two carbon atoms, as opposed to an alpha hydroxy acid where they're separated by one carbon atom," says Randy Schueller, a cosmetic chemist in Chicago. "This structure is important because it makes salicylic acid more oil soluble so it can penetrate into the pores of the skin."
Basically, it works by attacking your skin's "glue" and eliminates the acne bacteria. Acne bacteria hates it and your skin loves it! It is a very common acne-fighting ingredient used in many skin care products.
Fruit and Botanical Extracts
Salicylic Acid is very mild, but as with any skin care products, can cause some irritation. We've infused 16 botanical and fruit extracts to help combat acne, as well as redness and skin irritation. These also make the face and body wash smell amazing, without adding any synthetic fragrances (which are known skin irritants.)
Just a few of them: Clary Sage Extract, Almond Extract, Ginger, Orange, Ivy, Grapefruit, Lime, Wheat Germ, and more!
We've also added Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
One of the 'holy grail' ingredients of skin care: Niacinamide. What it does? Just to name a few: improves the appearance of enlarged pores, corrects uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and improves the strength of skin.
