Diminish breakouts with VITAMINS B5+B3 + Decongest with EFAs and control inflammation.
TREATMENT SERUM 1oz | 30ml
The serum's vitamin-rich formula moderates existing breakouts while preventing new acne formation by helping the body break down sebum, which in excessive amounts can clog pores. Hormonal imbalances contribute to sebum over-production. This novel micronutrient approach presents a safe alternative to popular antimicrobial treatments that may cause allergic reactions or premature aging of skin.
TREATMENT OIL 1oz | 30ml
Oils clear congestion much more effectively than other exfoliation methods because oils dissolve oils, and they penetrate deeply to break up blockages other ingredients can't reach. Omega-6 oils relieve that greasy feel by thinning sebum, and Omega-3 oils control inflammation. Antiseptic effects of tea tree oil are on a par with benzoyl peroxide.
Works with nature to control hormonal-related breakouts.
Anti-inflammatories modulate the harmful effects of the acne chain of events: infection > breakouts > inflammation > more breakouts.
Hydrates skin and improve tone and texture.
Penetrates into clogged pores, breaking up congested matter at the source.
Calms inflammation and strengthens barrier function to regulate water loss.
As effective as benzoyl peroxide with none of the unpleasant side effects.

NIACINAMIDE (Vitamin B3), with demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties, may be of benefit to patients with inflammatory skin conditions, including acne vulgaris. In particular, it blocks the inflammatory actions of iodides known to exacerbate acne.
