A unique sulfate- and paraben-free formula, this product is specially formulated with the perfect balance of salicylic acid and skin-nourishing botanicals. Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, has the ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore, as well as the skin’s surface, making it effective in reducing breakouts. Clarifying Acne Cleanser is also formulated with niacinamide to reduce redness and improve the skin's overall look. In addition, the soothing blend of botanical oils and extracts provides a multitude of benefits without over-drying the skin. This product immediately cleanses deep into pores, eliminating acne-causing bacteria, impurities and oil, leaving skin soft, radiant and blemish-free.
