Sodium PCA is a powerful humectant which can hold up to seven times its own weight in water. Humectants moisturize and hydrate the skin by binding water to the skin cells, which in turn enhances the penetration of active ingredients. Combined with Aloe Vera, which contains mucopolysaccharides (a natural moisturizer that hydrates the skin), and Riboflavin (which assists the body in mucus production to keep the skin moistened and hydrated), this humectant combination targets the cells directly, improving hydration, relieving dryness, soothing irritation, and promoting healing.
Tea extracts within the formulation protect the skin and promote immune resistance to free radicals. Green Tea extracts, rich in antioxidants, contain a cell-protecting function that fights oxidative stressors such as air, ultraviolet light, and smoke, that cause degeneration of the skin cells. White Tea extracts also help boost cellular immune function, protecting from free radical damage. Rooibos Red Tea extract contains high levels of Vitamin C and vital minerals for cellular regeneration and production.
Together, these ingredients nourish the skin – moisturizing, hydrating, and improving luminosity and vibrancy.
Use immediately after cleansing, both morning and night. Apply to cotton pads and gently smooth onto face and neck. Alternately, spritz directly onto the skin and allow it to absorb before applying your Serums and/or Moisturizers.
This unique formulation uses water-soluble BioSulphur, an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory natural element, to regulate sebum by suppressing hyperactive sebaceous glands, preventing congestion of the pores and reducing breakouts.
Azelaic acid is an anti-acne agent that specifically targets acne-causing bacteria, and is a reversible inhibitor of the melanin-producer enzyme tyrosinase. Tyrosinase suppression provides whitening benefits to the skin. Salicylic acid breaks down and exfoliates dead skin cells, acting as a ‘keratolytic’ to penetrate the follicle and prevent pores from becoming clogged. It is also beneficial for minor lightening of hyperpigmentation resulting from acne.
Helichrysum extract promotes healing and assists with water retention in the cells. Sulphur Pore Refining Lotion also includes Witch Hazel, a natural antibacterial astringent that removes dirt and oil from the skin without overdrying.
Use immediately after cleansing. Apply to damp cotton pads and gently smooth onto face and neck. Alternately, spritz directly onto the skin and allow it to absorb before applying your serums and/or moisturizers.
