When you see lists of skincare ingredients stacked with impossible-to-pronounce words, it doesn't exactly instill confidence in health-conscious shoppers. The toxicity levels of our health and beauty products is a legitimate concern, especially due to our skin’s sponge-like tendencies: up to 60 percent of what we slather on is absorbed into our bloodstream.
But if you want to clear blemishes and breakouts, before you switch to an “all-natural” skincare routine, remember: not all chemicals are equal offenders.
Sure, some chemicals have earned their bad rap but there are many clean, synthetic ingredients that do more good than harm. When used in trace amounts and tested for safety, these ingredients achieve incomparable clinical results without dread or damage.
All-natural doesn’t necessarily equal all-better. Our Acne Control Complex contains skin-clearing benzoyl peroxide. It's a clean synthetic ingredient and it's proven effective even though it may cause some dryness and irritation.
That's where the natural ingredients come in: healing, hydrating favorites like tea tree oil, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, and shea butter come together to allow the benzoyl peroxide to do its job without causing irritation.
That's why we introduced a clean synthetic to nice plant-derived components. It gives you the best possible scenario for treating your adult acne: a balanced, skin-loving combination of clear results and TLC.
