Featured Actives:
  • Salicylic Acid 3% - This ingredient 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. It is ideal in a 3% concentration formula and 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 3% concentration in this product is much higher than the over-the-counter strengths that typically are a much lower strength, usually a percentage of .05%, (often not strong enough to achieve the best results).

  • Lactic Acid 2% - Used for a thousand years to treat dry and sensitive skin as it smoothes and promotes healing. The multi-purpose benefit of moisturizing and exfoliating make it ideal for clients suffering with acne, surface dehydration, fine lines, and mild hyperpigmentation. Derived from sour milk, lactic acid has a better water intake capacity than glycerin, and is agreeable even to the most sensitive skin types.

  • 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:
Those of you with normal/dry skin can get really frustrated as many of the acne products are made to overdry the skin. Acne Treatment Cream was made for you. We refer to it as our “Healing Moisturizer” since it not only helps clear up the skin, but it moisturizes. Hard to believe but true. Feel free to use it once or twice daily.
