Finally! A product that can help to speed up the dreaded purging process! While many products used to properly address acne encourage it to run its course, this product has the unique ability to speed up that course without compromising skin health. It effectively reduces acne causing bacteria and inflammation while promoting collagen and overall follicular health. Neem, burdock, encapsulated retinaldehyde, and niacinamide come together in the fusion of eastern and western medicine to harmonize the skin and promote homeostasis. The unique and bioavailable form of Retinol helps to clear congestion by normalizing cellular turnover in acneic skins. It dislodges clogs before they can surface as compacted acne lesions all while ensuring inflammation levels remain low and skin looks radiant.
IconicA® Encapsulated Retinaldehyde
Niacinamide can improve skin’s elasticity, dramatically enhance its barrier function by stimulating the production of ceramides, it helps erase discoloration, and revives skin’s healthy tone and texture. It has also been proven to help heal acne lesions and reduce the red marks left over from breakouts.
Bio-Fense (Lactobacillus Ferment)
A Fermented probiotic that triggers anti-microbial peptides in the skin, which in turn kill harmful bacteria associated with acne. By regulating and supporting diversity within the microbiome, this then helps to normalize the skin and increases skin barrier defense. It reduces both acne lesions and erythema (redness) caused and left behind by active acne.
Burdock Root is a powerful chinese herb that has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which allow it to reduce and heal acne lesions. Scientific studies are beginning to show that burdock root also serves to improve signs of aging which goes hand in hand with supporting healthy, acne resilient skin.
A powerful botanical ingredient which regulates oil production and mattifies the skin. It also possesses anti aging properties to support overall skin health and appearance.
