We started Arithmetic to help people get tough cases of acne and breakouts under control. Andy Bosselman, our founder, had a long struggle with adult acne. It was during this time that he came across research that showed adult skin responds better to treatments that are gentler, work more slowly, and incorporate natural ingredients.
He became obsessed with finding better acne products for adults. He even got a job in the headquarters of Sephora, one the world's largest beauty and skincare retailers. Even with hundreds of skincare products coming across his desk, he didn't find products that applied this approach. While at Sephora, he met Stanford-trained chemists who were interested applying the same research.
Together, they came up with a spot treatment that’s a little crazy. While most treatments dried out and irritated the skin, the Acne Control Complex is packed with natural soothing and hydrating ingredients.
In fact, it's almost entirely natural but powered by benzoyl peroxide, a clean synthetic ingredient. The hundreds of reviews on our website, not to mention the accolades of beauty editors, prove that it has earned something of a cult following.
Yet we're still considered an "under the radar" skincare brand! Have you used our Acne Control Complex? What do you think?
