Active Face Cleanser has always been a very effective cleanser, but we believe it's now even better thanks to the addition of Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid in case you don't already know is one of acne's greatest enemies! Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid whose job is largely to help loosen and dissolve dead skin cells, which if not cleared leads to blackheads and pimples. It penetrates down into the pores which means a deeper cleanse and much better outcomes in terms of reducing acne. Active Face Cleanser is now an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid)/BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) cleanser that includes Glycolic (from sugar cane) and Salicylic Acids (from the Willow Bark Tree). This product is your best chance at helping to control and minimise outbreaks and if used in conjunction with Blemish Gel, the results are even better!
Active Face Cleanser is also an ideal cleanser for Rosacea sufferers. Why? Because Rosacea skin types commonly have a build up of dead skin cells which cause blemishes. Using this cleanser regularly is a great way to help prevent these lumps, bumps and blemishes from developing. Mary is a Rosacea sufferer herself. This is what she had to say about the new formulation: I have been trialing the new formulation of Active Face Cleanser for a few months and just love it. As a person with Rosacea and the pimples that often go with the problem I found the gel very effective and gentle. Yay to the new version. The key to getting the most out of this cleanser is to leave it on your face for one minute. This gives the AHA's and BHA's enough time to do their job with loosening dead skin cells effectively. Tip - An easy way to get your minute in is to cleanse your face first when in the shower then while you wait clean the rest of your body. That generally takes around one minute, then you can rinse your face thoroughly.
