Clears + decongests with EFAs and controls inflammation.
Oils clear congestion much more effectively than other exfoliation methods because oils dissolve oils, and they penetrate deeply to break up blockages other ingredients can't reach. Omega-6 oils relieve that greasy feel by thinning sebum, and Omega-3 oils control inflammation.
Antiseptic effects of tea tree oil are on a par with benzoyl peroxide.
Penetrates into clogged pores, breaking up congested matter at the source.
Calms inflammation and strengthens barrier function to regulate water loss.
As effective as benzoyl peroxide with none of the unpleasant side effects.
ARGAN OIL is rich in omega-6s and 9s, vitamin E, carotenes, squalene, and phenols, and has a remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and improve skin elasticity. It also helps control surface sebum, thus eliminating that greasy look.
BORAGE OIL is high in GLAs (gamma-linolenic acid), which makes it instrumental in controlling one of the primary contributors to acne, namely, inflammation. Because borage oil also regulates water loss, it is excellent for treating adult acne.
TEA TREE OIL Tests show that tea tree oil is as effective as benzoyl peroxide in combating P. acnes, the major acne-causing microbe. Better yet, it has none of the downside risks associated with BP, like sun sensitization and increased skin sensitivity.
