So much more than a BHA liquid exfoliant
Ideal for those suffering skin congestion caused by excess sebum or bacteria, Clear Skin Tonic with 2% BHA works to gently decongest, refresh and restore equilibrium to your skin, all without drying or stripping.
Whereas water-soluble AHAs are great for skins where natural cell turnover has slowed, oil-soluble BHAs are the business when it comes to skins which are experiencing congestion due to excess sebum and debris, where cell turnover isn’t necessarily an issue. This is thanks to their ability to penetrate deep into the pore and clear it out. However, when used on their own, BHAs such as Salicylic Acid can dry the skin out, further exacerbating problems and even leading to more breakouts.
While Salicylic Acid stars in this formulation, it is the raft of supporting botanical ingredients which nurture the skin’s microbiome that elevate this to be so much more than just a BHA liquid exfoliator.
Multifunctional natural active Seboclear MP helps to truly break the breakout cycle by inhibiting the P. acnes bacteria, preventing it from spreading; something a BHA on its own can never do. Seboclear MP also works to balance the delicate balance of your skin’s microbiota as well as normalising your skin’s sebum production and helping to reduce inflammation.
Clear Skin Tonic also packs in the natural antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Thyme, all of which feature heavily throughout the rest of our eternally-popular Clear Skin collection.
Licorice adds further anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties to this skin loving tonic and has the added benefit of melanin suppression. As such, it helps reduce the pigmentation breakouts can leave behind long after the swelling, redness and discomfort have subsided.
Cypress, Barley and Solomon’s Seal work in synergy as a botanical anti-redness complex, also helping to stimulating circulation and healing in the dermis.
Rounding out this formulation are natural Chamomile, Arnica and Cucumber, each of which are well known for their calming and soothing properties in topical applications. Arnica also works to promote healing and strengthen the capillary walls.
Through harnessing the power of these botanicals to calm and balance the skin’s microbiome, while digging deep into the pores to clear out excess oil and blockages, Clear Skin Tonic effectively supports your skin’s health both on the surface, and deep beneath. As a result, skin is left feeling clean, calm and velvety, with a semi-matte finish.
Alpha-H has owned the skin resurfacing space for more than 20 years and this new addition to the Clear Skin range stays true to our belief that the most effective skincare combines the best of science and nature.
