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 gets clogged and filled with keratinized debris. Glycolic acid helps with both dry and oily conditions, it dissolves the dry and thick layers of the skin and unclogs the pore as well as helping other nourishing products and ingredients penetrate. The stimulation achieved by a therapeutic glycolic product also increases circulation, smoothes uneven skin, and improves the overall functioning of the skin. Another well-known benefit of glycolic acid is its ability to dissolve and lighten surface hyperpigmentation.

  • Salicylic Acid 2% - Aids in dissolving the top layer of the stratum corneum by virtue of its keratolytic 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).

  • 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.
Ellen's Tips:
This highly keratolytic exfoliating toner can be used several ways. If you are very oily, you can apply to a cotton pad and use it on the entire face. However, if you are not a fan of strong toners, just dip a Q-tip applicator into the solution and dab on blemishes once or twice daily. Antiseptic and dissolving, for some of you this is all you need to keep your skin clear. It works!
