30ML BLEMISH SOS - CLARIFYING OIL WITH 2%SALICYLIC+ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

  • Olive Squalane - Similar to the skin’s sebum, squalane is one of the best natural emollients. It penetrates skin faster than any other oil, making it a great carrier for other actives. Squalane is also an antioxidant, prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth and is an antibacterial.

     

    Salicylic Acid - One of the few scientifically backed up ingredients that help with blemishes. Salicylic acid is considered a keratolytic medication, which means that it's perfect for supreme exfoliation. It also can reduce sebum secretion, which is another way it can help reduce acne. Lastly, it's also an anti-inflammatory, which can help calm inflamed, red skin.

    Liquorice root - Liquorice contains various naturally-occurring compounds, including glabridin and liquiritin. Glabridin have been found to be successful at lightening the colour of skin. Studies have shown that glabridin also prevents UV-B induced pigmentation and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Liquiritin is particularly useful for treating melasma.

     

    Dandelion Leaf - Dandelion is one of the richest sources of Vitamins A, C, and E. This group of vitamins together acts as powerful antioxidants. They help in arresting skin cell degeneration while also boosting collagen synthesis and general skin health.

    Lemon Balm - Lemon balm is naturally rich in caffeic, ferulic and rosmarinic acids, which are potent antioxidants. It also contains powerful natural astringents called tannins. Besides it also possesses important anti-bacterial properties. These make lemon balm highly effective for acne prone, oily and sensitive skin.

     

    Black Cumin Oil - Numerous studies on Nigella Sativa have shown that it has a wide range of pharmacological effects - immune-stimulatory, anti-inflammatory, hypoglycemic, antihypertensive, antiasthmatic, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, antioxidant and anticancer. Due to its very powerful anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, this oil is perfect for clarifying congested complexions as well as calming angry breakouts.

     

    Prickly Pear Seed Oil - This rare and precious oil is very high in linoleic acid. The vitamin E found in prickly pear seed oil is the highest of any plant oil on the market (3 times higher than argan oil)!

    Alpha Lipoic Acid - Often called "the universal antioxidant" as it is soluble both in water and in fat. It is 400 times more powerful than vitamins E and C combined. What is perhaps the most valuable property of this substance is its ability to penetrate the skin's surface and the skin cell membrane. Alpha lipoic acid also has the ability to gently exfoliate skin and making it look smooth and soft. In addition, this potent antioxidant regulates the production of oil glands, as under or overproduction can clog pores. It also helps reduce lines and wrinkles. 

     

    Rosemary Antioxidant - A topical antioxidant, which also has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial benefits.
