It’s as potent as a k-beauty ampoule (what is an “ampoule”? It’s a term in k-beauty for a serum that’s super-concentrated), but gentle as a face mist. It has ingredients usually found in moisturizers and ingredients usually found in masks.
A potent yet very gentle anti-acne product that functions as a:
Moisturizer (lovely oils, butters and a powerful peptide that restores moisture to skin while balancing the micro-biome.)
Serum (17!!! anti-acne actives) and…
A mask (there’s just enough Zinc Oxide in there that it leaves a protective veil, yet it is feather light and quick to disappear into the skin.
Initially concepted for a pre-teen, so it’s extremely gentle, but also absolutely packed full of Nature’s acne fighters in just the right concentrations to support (not overwhelm) tender skin.
As powerful as Illumina but gentler and easier to use. It has basically ALL the actives from Illumina (except the exfoliants) AND we’ve added ingredients to reduce the specific type of inflammation caused by p.acnes bacteria, as well as ingredients to strengthen skin cells so they don’t rupture and spread bacteria as easily.
Same ingredients as Illumina:
Saw Palmetto – mitigates hormone activity in the skin
Herbal Complex – targets bacterial biofilms, mediates inflammatory markers present with acne inflammation specifically
Vitamin C (SAP) – clinical studies show an effectiveness comparable to retinol
Ingredients not found in Illumina but that are fantastic and gentle for acne include:
Zinc Oxide – anti-redness and swelling
Resveratrol – antioxidant and decreases hormonal acne
Niacinamide – supports skin’s own healing efforts
Allantoin – highly anti-inflammatory
Bisabolol – strengthens skin cell walls
BAKUCHIOL – a phyto-compound derived from the babchi plant that safely and without irritation offers the same benefits as retinol from increasing collagen quality to encouraging more rapid skin cell turnover.
