Made in France, Fragrance-free, Vegan
The skin is naturally acidic. Some cleansers with a higher pH combined with external factors like pollution can disturb the skin's fragile pH balance. When damaged, the skin's acidic mantle causes irritation and can't defend itself against bacteria that can end up causing pimples and inflammation.
This purifying toner has an acidic pH similar to the skin's. Each application works to rebalance the skin's pH after cleansing. This toner also removes the limestone and mineral residues present in the tap water during cleansing.
Concentrated in anti-blemish active ingredients, this purifying toner helps refine skin texture and limit the development of bacteria** involved in the appearance of pimples.
Tips for using the purifying lotion
In the morning and evening, soak a cotton pad with the purifying lotion to apply it onto clean skin while avoiding the eye area.
Follow up with your daily serum and day cream.
Particles may form at the bottom of the bottle. This is a normal phenomenon linked to the high concentration of active ingredients in the product. Shake your purifying lotion before use.
Is this lotion suitable for your skin type?
This purifying toner is suitable for all skin types, particularly for oily, blemish-prone and acne-prone skin.
Due to a high concentration of BHA, we don't recommend this toner for sensitive skin.
Discontinue use of the lotion if you experience discomfort or irritation.
Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact, rinse with plenty of water.
Pimples and blemishes can appear on all skin types due to the presence of bacteria in the sebaceous glands. The 1% of potent salicylic acid in this serum is a powerful antibacterial agent to correct this concern.
The 4 key active ingredients in the purifying toner
Salicylic Acid (1%):
Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), known for its exfoliating actions that promote desquamation (aka the elimination of dead skin) and enhance the cell renewal process. It's therefore ideal for treating oily skin, acne-prone skin, skin with imperfections, and skin with fine lines and wrinkles.
Salicylic acid is also known to reduce the development of harmful microorganisms on the skin, making it an effective ingredient to cleanse and purify the surface layers of the epidermis. It also helps prevent the appearance of blackheads by reducing the clogging of pores.
A botanically-extracted molecule, salicylic acid was first extracted from willow bark in 1829 by a French pharmacist named Pierre-Joseph Leroux. Salicylic acid is naturally present in several plants, particularly meadowsweet and willow, from which it takes its name.
Centifolia Rose Hydrolat:
Also called the rose with a hundred leaves, this highly fragrant flower is the source of a floral water that's known for its soothing properties which complement the purifying actions of salicylic acid in this formula.
Rich in tannins, centifolia rose hydrolat offers astringent, skin-firming, and pore clearing properties that work to refine the skin's texture and appearance.
Derived from beetroot, zinc is ideal for oily skin and significantly reduces sebum secretion.
Coupled with L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid, Zinc promotes healthy cells and strengthens the skin's protective barrier.
Zinc is also known to reduce the development of harmful microorganisms responsible for many skin imbalances.
Aloe Vera :
Aloe vera is known to hydrate the skin. Its soothing action relieves irritation and itching. Its refreshing application tones the skin.
