Key active ingredients

Gentle but effective

+0.5% Salicylic acid:
This is an encapsulated form of salicylic acid, with in vivo studies showing that it has less irritation on the skin versus standard salicylic acids without compromising on efficacy i.e. exfoliating the oil layer of the skin and unclogging pores

+2% Succinic acid:
At the levels we have used, succinic acid and niacinamide (below) have both shown through in vivo testing to reduce excess oil on the skin and help reduce the frequency of breakouts

+5% Niacinamide:
5% niacinamide is clinically proven to significantly reduce excess oil on the skin, giving rise to a reduction in breakouts. When combined with humectants and moisturizers to support a stronger and healthier skin barrier. So we added…

Added benefits

+0.997% Sea kelp complex:

In vivo testing shows that at this level the sea kelp extract significantly improves skin hydration and therefore helps alleviate the potential drying effect of the salicylic acid and working to boost the impact of niacinamide.

+3% Propanediol:
Works in conjunction with niacinamide to support moisturization and reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)

Step Use daily in the AM after cleansing.
