7 serums in 1: Non-irritating Exfoliation, Anti-inflammatory, Antioxidant, Pore Cleansing, Healing, Anti-aging, Hydrating
+ Pumpkin Enzymes - AHAs or traditional enzymes such as papain or bromelain tend to be irritating on the skin. Unlike traditional materials, pumpkin enzymes show an uncommonly mild irritation profile in tests.
+ Vigna Acontifolia Seed Extract - Has a demonstrated ability to help boost cell renewal, similar to retinol, without the associated irritation. When used at similar levels, the extract’s efficacy comparable to that of Retinol. Additionally, it has potent antioxidant properties.
+ White Willow Bark Extract - Acts as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent. Willow bark extracts are employed as a natural source of salicylic acid. Provides the benefits of salicylic acid such as BHA exfoliation, and anti-microbial action, without any of the typically associated irritation.
+ Green Tea - Supplement quality and contains a high percentage of EGCG. EGCG has been shown to be 25 to 100 times more potent than vitamins C and E in terms of antioxidant activity. ECGC prevents conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is the hormone that causes acne. Green tea drastically reduces inflammation and regulates sebum production.
+ Magnolia Bark - Cytokines are inflammatory mediators shown to be present in high concentrations in the skin of acne sufferers. The cytokine Interleukin-1a has also been shown to promote abnormally sticky (ie pore-clogging) skin cells. P. acnes bacteria appear to cause inflammation by producing these pro-inflammatory cytokines. Magnolia Bark contain powerful anti-inflammatory mechanisms that reduce cytokine activity. It also has anti-microbial activity against p. acnes. It is also high in antioxidants.
+ Skullcap Root - Chinese skullcap has long been used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine to treat skin conditions. It contains a flavonoid called baicalin. Baicalin is powerfully anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It also functions similarly to retinoic acid (used in retinol products) by exerting antiandrogenitic action – it inhibits androgen receptor mRNA expression in skin cells. In acneic skin, androgen hormones are overactive. By inhibiting androgen receptors, androgen activity is decreased.

In the evening, after cleansing, apply 1-2 pumps to clean skin. Because it is so powerful, many find they can decrease the frequency of use to 1-2x per week after an initial period of 1-6 months of daily use.
