HERO INGREDIENTS + WHY
Synergie Bacne treats the four causes of acne and spot breakouts simultaneously, to clear skin and keep it that way…
1 Overproduction and accumulation of skin cells (which clog pores)
2 Overproduction of oil from sebaceous glands
3 Propionibacterium acnes (p-acne) bacteria which becomes trapped and grows in pores
4 Skin inflammation from bacterial assault on cells
The gentle, non-abrasive, exfoliating properties of lactic acid slough excess skin cells. They also aid skin hydration by drawing water into the skin and leave a protective moisture layer on the skin to help minimise scarring and improve skin texture.
Salicylic acid (a BHA, or beta hydroxyl acid) helps exfoliation and goes deep into pores to act like a bottle-brush, pulling out oil, debris and reducing inflammation in one go.
Lemon grass and lavender oils – destroy the p-acne bacteria which causes inflammation and redness (a better choice for this task than the potentially toxic benzoyl peroxide, which can produce ‘rebound acne’ due to bacterial resistance).
Aloe vera – calms, soothes and aids the healing process, and minimises scarring
Hyaluronic acid (HA) – This naturally occurring super-hydrator binds 1000x its weight in water into the epidermis to enhance hydration and dermis to help give the skin’s intercellular matrix its structure, improves skin function and texture.
