Purifying Foaming Wash and Purifying Toner
•Salicylic Acid 2.0% → A beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) with keratolytic activity to help open clogged sebaceous follicles. It helps dissolve the top layers of the stratum corneum cells and remove impurities, improving the look and feel of the skin. Also antiseptic and fungicidal.
Acne Treatment Lotion
•Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% → An antibacterial agent commonly used in acne treatments. It functions by forcing an oxidant (peroxide) into pilosebaceous follicle where it releases oxygen, thereby diminishing the P. acne population. This reduces the level of toxic, corrosive fatty acids and inflammation activity.
