Minimize imperfections associated with acne-prone skin with this exclusive complex of clinicallyproven Plant extracts and the next generation in AHAs.
AHAminoPlex prolongs and controls delivery to the skin that avoids the severe spike of irritation that occurs within seconds of applying simple glycolic acid. This allows skin to tolerate the acid with little-to-no sensations of irritation – including stinging, burning and redness – even on the first use (some sensitive skin may experience passive discomfort during the first few applications).
To further minimize the risk of redness, tingling and stinging, ultra-soothing Lichochalcone from Chinese Licorice interrupts the biochemical cascade that leads to redness and other discomfort. This yellow molecule also decreases lipase, an anti-lipid enzyme produced by bacteria on skin’s surface and in pores. Researchers have linked lipase to the heightened inflammation often seen in moderate and severe acne-prone skin.
Meadowsweet (Spirea ulmaria) is dermatologist-tested, and been found to strengthen an element of the skin’s natural defense system: cathelicidins. These natural antibiotics preserve skin’s ecosystem, helping to maintain the balance of healthy flora on skin’s surface and in pores. A reduction in oil production and other imperfections is also seen. Targeting imperfections and pore imbalances is a patented, fast-acting, purifying blend of the most active fractions of New Zealand and Australian Tea Tree oils. Cools the skin and soothes redness. Finally, support for skin’s repair processes comes from immune-enhancing highly purified molecules from Baker’s yeast.
In a four week consumer test, 4 out of 5 people who used this product reported clearing of imperfections, decreased redness, increased hydration and an improvement in skin clarity and tone within several days to two weeks.
