How It Works
Salicylic Acid is produced under various scientific processes, but it was initially obtained from the bark of the willow tree and various wintergreen leaves. It works by penetrating deeply into pores using a blend of different acids to target the issues that lead to problem skin.
Salicylic Acid is a Beta-Hydroxy Acid that is ideal for cleansing problematic skin. BHA's are oil-soluable & able to penetrate into skin pores, which contain sebum (skin oils). It disolves and washes away the excess oils that build up inside the pores. It aids in shedding dead skin, helping pores stay clear.
Glycolic Acid is a small Alpha-Hydroxy Acid synthesized from various botanical sources most commonly from fruits like grapes and apples. AHA's are water-soluable making them excellent for use in everyday washes. Glycolic acids help to break down pore-clogging dead skin. This exfoliating action promotes skin clarity for a radiant, revitalized complexion by stimulating the growth of new cells. It also helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture irregularities and discoloration.
Lactic Acid is another powerful Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. It is often used as an exfoliating agent, isolated and obtained via glucose, fructose and sucrose from various fruit and botanical sources. Lactic Acid has the ability to increase the rate of cell shedding, which increases new collagen formation. Its natural affinity to the skin makes it very effective at softening the surface.
With its antioxidant and astringent properties, camphor nourishes and helps bring balance to oily and congested completions.
