Willow Bark is a natural source of Salicylic acid, which is probably the most effective single acne fighting ingredient on the planet. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties are very powerful and important for acne treatment. Salicylic acid helps unclog pores to resolve and prevent lesions. Salicylic acid works by dissolving this ‘cement’ that holds those sticky cells together in the clogged pores. Most effective acne treatments can make skin a bit red and inflamed while the skin adjusts to them. This ingredient is unique because it’s very effective at fighting acne, but it has a soothing, calming effect on skin. Because our salicylic acid is from all natural sources and is not synthesised it’s delivery to the skin is more immediate and effective.
Aloe Vera to soothe inflammation and heal spots.
Coltsfoot (Tussilago Farfara) extract to soothe inflammation. Coltsfoot contains tannins, which is its main healing component. It encourages the growth of new cells, which can help to push out toxins, slough away dead skin cells, and fight free radical damage. When new skin cells grow, they push dead and dull cells to the surface, which reveals a cleaner, brighter-looking complexion.
Other beneficial components of coltsfoot include cysteine, which is vital in the regeneration of healthy, strong skin cells. This makes skin more resilient to damage.
In addition, coltsfoot is a natural moisturizer. It not only to helps clean skin, but also blocks the absorption of acne-causing bacteria into the skin. As it fights bacteria, it encourages skin-cells to hold on to their natural moisture, instead of secreting it. When skin-cells do not hold on to their own moisture, the skin must continuously produce more sebum, which collects in pores and eventually causes pimples. When cells hold onto their own moisture, however, the skin has to produce less sebum, and fewer pimples occur.
Cucumber extract to tone and cool the skin. Cucumber is rich in vitamins A, C, and folic acid while the hard skin of cucumbers is rich in fiber and a range of minerals include magnesium, molybdenum, and potassium. Additionally, cucumber contains silica, a trace mineral that contributes greatly to strengthening our connective tissues. Cucumbers are known to heal many skin problems, under eye swelling and sunburn. Cucumbers also contain ascorbic and caffeic acids which prevent water loss, therefore cucumber is frequently applied topically to burns and dermatitis.
So you see why all these ingredients combined make an effective spot-buster!
