Understand the science and benefits behind creating a healthy microbiome and balanced skin.
The science behind Blemish Relief is our prebiotic approach, a system that adapts to your skin’s unique microbiome to target troublesome blemishes. Using naturally occurring prebiotics, Blemish Relief helps your skin fight back against blemishes without disrupting its natural balance. The result? An effective defense against blemish-causing bacteria that promotes a clear, blemish-free complexion.
Below are some of the key ingredients in Blemish Relief behind our prebiotic approach:
Sucrose is made from ultra-fine sugar and is a mild exfoliant that helps unclog pores and remove excess dirt and oil without over-drying or stripping skin. Sucrose helps support a healthy skin microbiome by encouraging good bacteria. It rinses off quickly and easily, making it ideal for gentle yet effective cleansing.
Citrulline, first discovered in watermelon, is an alpha-amino acid that visibly calms skin for a clearer, more even-looking complexion. Nourishing and soothing, it is an ideal way to counteract the drying effect of anti-blemish ingredients.
Lactic & Succinic Acids are short chain fatty acids help quickly shrink blemishes by working alongside salicylic acid to attack blemish-causing bacteria and encourage good bacteria necessary for a healthy microbiome. They also provide gentle yet effective exfoliation for smoother, more even-looking skin.
Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, is found in foods such as tomatoes. This skin-clearing powerhouse helps to gently and visibly erase imperfections, unclog oily pores, and minimise the redness and uneven tone that can be left behind after breakouts by improving skin’s moisture barrier.
Squalane is found naturally in the human body but also can be derived from olive oil. It hydrates skin without making it look or feel greasy. This lightweight hydration is ideal for oil and blemish prone skin as it helps maintain optimal hydration without clogging pores or causing blemishes.
Salicylic Acid is a beta-hydroxy acid and is considered the best non-prescription treatment for blemish and oil-prone skin. It quickly and effectively exfoliates and removes dead skin which can clog pores and cause breakouts. Because it is oil-soluble, salicylic acid is easily absorbed for targeted, more effective treatment.
Retinol is and ultra-powerful, non-prescription Vitamin-A derivative that helps prevent breakouts by unclogging pores and accelerating surface skin exfoliation and renewal. Unique slow-release carrier system helps preserve this unstable ingredient and calm skin.
