Natural AHA’s smooth the rough skin commonly caused by acne, working to return a more uniform skin surface over time with regular use. Hardened sebum, which combines with dead cells to form sebaceous plugs, is also dissolved, helping to free clogs from pores with minimal extraction effort. A proprietary form of white tea counteracts visible irritation from AHA’s. For soothing deeper signs of redness, echinacea angustifolia (common name: coneflower) has been shown in laboratory tests to counteract hyaluronidase, a tissue-destructive enzyme known to cause inflammation in acne-prone skin. This enzyme may also contribute to the “pitting” often seen after acne lesions heal.
