Featured Actives:
  • Glycolic Acid 3% - Dissolves the intercellular cement responsible for abnormal keratinization. In acne-prone skin, this is of particular importance as the pore is clogged and filled with keratinized dead cells. Glycolic acid helps with dry and oily conditions alike. It dissolves the dry and thick layers of the skin and unclogs the pores as well as helping other nourishing products and ingredients to penetrate. The stimulation achieved by a therapeutic glycolic product also increases circulation, smoothes uneven skin, and improves the overall function of the skin. Another well-known benefit of glycolic acid is its ability to dissolve and lighten surface hyperpigmentation, often seen in acne prone skin.

  • Salicylic Acid 2% - Aids in dissolving the top layer of the stratum corneum by virtue of its catalytic nature. Salicylic acid is a chemical derived from the bark of sweet birch and leaves of wintergreen. In the 2% concentration, it has the most impact with respect to exfoliation at home. Known for its antiseptic qualities as well, this ingredient is excellent for most skin types, except very dry or sensitive skin. The 2% concentration is much higher than the over-the-counter strengths that are typically much lower in strength – (in the neighborhood of .05% - often not strong enough to get the intended results).

  • Aloe Vera - Known for its anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties. Aloe Vera is made up of the most precious substances of our skin – enzymes, vitamins, proteins, and minerals that support all skin function and activate the skin’s self-healing power. Aloe Vera helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance and stimulates blood circulation. It has been used to calm and soothe burns and irritations, and it is moisturizing.

  • Witch Hazel Extract - Known for its astringent properties. Witch Hazel extract is also toning, anti-inflammatory, and regulating. Derived from the leaves and bark of the tree, also known as Hamamelis, it has a proficient vasoconstrictor effect that is excellent for inflamed, irritated, or acneic skin conditions. Research has shown that Witch Hazel is effective against free radicals and acts as a UVA and UVB absorber. It is also used in ointments for the treatment of sunburns, bruises and insect bites.

  • Allantoin - An excellent ingredient for sensitive, acneic, and irritated skin conditions. It is a botanical extract derived from the comfrey root and is known to be healing. Furthermore, studies show that this extract aids in the healing of scarred skin by stimulating new tissue growth.

  • Panthenol - This highly moisturizing ingredient aids in tissue repair and stimulates cellular proliferation. Panthenol also helps the skin promote wound healing and is anti-inflammatory. Its ability to attract water from the environment makes it provide added hydration and suppleness to the skin.
Ellen's Tips:
A must-have blemish fighter. Use once or twice daily to sizzle and dissolve blemishes. We love this applied before Clear Med 5% or Clear Med 10%. At night, follow with Sulfur Calming Mask and leave on so it does it’s work while you sleep. It also helps smooth acne scars and dark spots as an added bonus.
