Cleansers are a paradox: they have to clean away dirt and oil, but can’t over-dry the skin. Getting it right took a patented SE Microbiome Complex® that targets acne-causing bacteria and helps the acne-fighting strains to flourish. It also took natural plant extracts, amino acids, vitamins, and a slightly acidic pH, because that’s what helps fight acne. (Typical cleansers have alkaline pH, which is bad for acne.) Break it all down and you’ve got a powerful cleanser, healthier skin, and less acne. Paradox solved.
