The Research

A vibrant, radiant complexion is intimately connected to the pH of the skin’s outermost layer, the Stratum Corneum.

Sensitivity, barrier breakdown, pigmentation and premature ageing are all consequences of environmental damage. These occur as a result of excessive solar exposure, causing the skin’s pH to shift from a healthy acidic state to alkaline, triggering the up-regulation of enzymes that break down connective tissue and erode protective barrier structures.

Signalling peptides in human skin direct all metabolic processes, including desquamation (cell turnover), cellular differentiation (cellular function), and hydration. Short-chain protein sequences and ceramides are critical in these intercellular communication processes.

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
Salicylic Acid is a lipid-soluble Beta Hydroxy Acid which enhances skin clarity and texture by decongesting pores and calming irritation and redness.
Amino Acids solubilise and thoroughly remove oil, dirt, debris, sunscreen and makeup residues from the skin’s surface, eliciting a calming effect on skin while boosting hydration and fortifying barrier function.
Skin Identical Ceramide Complex replenishes the skin’s lipid matrix to fortify barrier function and resilience while preventing TEWL and increasing surface hydration.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-37 + Hexapeptide-10 are proteins that support skin moisture 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 for a more radiant tone and texture.
