Key Ingredients

Plus Icon Minus Icon

Barosma betulina leaf extract: A plant-based ingredient that directly acts on sebocyte stem cells to  reduce excess oil and enlarged pores. It is clinically proven to  reduce pore diameter, pore volume and oil secretion.

Lactic acid (AHA): A natural and biocompatible exfoliant for effective removal of epidermal dead skin cells responsible for congestion. Also aids in hydration and is low irritant.

Salicylic acid (BHA): An oil loving acid that works on the uppermost layer of the skin and within the pores. It is excellent for acne sufferers as it  can exfoliate and remove dead cells and debris trapped in pores.

Malic acid (AHA): A powerful antioxidant and humectant that has hydrating properties and leaves a protective, moisturising layer on the ski n. It is also an oil loving hydroxy acid.

Liquorice extract: A potent anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant to reduce redness and calm sensitive skin. Liquorice extract helps to regulate the oil gland, making it an ideal ingredient for acne and congested skin. It also helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

Manuka oil: A potent antibacterial agent 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 and reduces the P. acnes bacteria associated with acne.

Citric acid (AHA): An antioxidant that promotes exfoliation, leaving the skin hydrated, bright and smooth.

Additional ingredients: Aloe vera leaf juice, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5)

A note from Terri

Plus Icon Minus Icon

There are many contributing factors to acne including skin cell overproduction being trapped in pores, excess oil, overgrowth of P.acne bacteria and inflammation. Salicylic acid works like a mini bottle-brush. It gets deep inside the pore to clean out the build-up of dead skin, dirt, and oil, like a brush cleaning the inside of a bottle. The alpha hydroxy acids then work on the surface of the skin to chemically exfoliate dead skin cells responsible for congestion. This multi-level approach is the key to successfully treating acne at the source.
