The Research

Complexion health, vitality and beauty are highly dependent upon the acidic pH of the Stratum Corneum, the skin’s outermost layer.

Skin protects itself from the breakdown of its connective tissues ) by upregulating enzymes that assist in collagen and elastin connective tissue synthesis. These enzymes require acidic surface conditions to function optimally.

Breakouts, premature ageing, pigmentation and other signs of environmental damage can occur when the skin is too alkaline (the opposite of acidic).

A nightly cleanse with a complex of hydroxy acids, phospholipids and amino acids can assist in gently recalibrating skin pH back to a healthy, acidic state, helping to restore clarity and firmness.

The Clarity Actives

A Complex of Skin Identical Alpha Hydroxy Acids (including Lactic + Citric Acid) refines skin tone and texture while enhancing skin radiance by encouraging optimal desquamation processes to reveal a clearer, more balanced complexion. By recalibrating skin back to acidic levels, AHAs support cellular renewal and connective tissue synthesis, while amplifying skin firmness and hydration.

The Clarity Actives

Acetyl Hexapeptide-37 + Hexapeptide-10 are proteins that support skin moisturisation by reducing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and increasing hydration levels in the Stratum Corneum. In hyper-sebaceous skin, they calm the appearance of redness to cultivate a clearer, more radiant tone.
