Acne Eliminating Treatment
Colloidal Sulfur, Lactic Acid, Sake Peptide – This advanced formula combines acne-fighting and anti-aging ingredients that clear up acne pimples and prevent new ones from forming without over-drying the affected area.
- 3 peptides including a Detoxifying Peptide (Rice ferment rich in low molecular peptides) with skin antioxidant protective benefits. Also rich in phosphoserine, ferulic acid, cysteine and cystine to help moisturize, smooth, sooth, detoxify, and regenerate skin. Addition of Antioxidant Peptide and Preservative Peptide make this a potent yet comprehensive spot treatment.
- Sulfur, an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antimicrobial agent that helps soothe and keep excess oil in control.
- Niacinamide shown to reduce age spots and acne due to its antimicrobial activity and anti-aging properties.
- Lactic acid for glowing, clearer skin.
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying Spot Correction. Apply to the affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily.Size

4-t-Butylcyclohexanol, Acacia Senegal Gum, Arginine, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lactic Acid, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Niacinamide, Pentylene Glycol, Rice Ferment (Sake) Filtrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Water (Aqua), Xanthan Gum
Collidal Sulfur is an OTC category I antimicrobial and antibacterial agent for topical acne to reduce oil. It has been shown to synergistically work with salicylic acid.
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid(AHA) that works as a pH adjuster and buffering agent to maintain formulation integrity and help in delivery of signal ingredients to the skin. Lactic acid is an ideal exfoliant and humectant. Lactate (the solution form of lactic acid: CH3CH(OH)COO−) is a natural moisturizer and offers antibacterial properties. Lactic acid helps promoted a softer, younger looking complexion while helping to reduce the appearance of acne scars, age-related spots and pigmentation.
Epilobium Angustifolium Extract (Canadian Willowherb) is an extract from the flower/leaf/stem of the willowherb that contains oenothein B molecules which have been shown to have a 5-a-reductase inhibitory activity. It also has antioxidant, anti-irritation and anti-bacterial properties.
Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil (Tea Tree) is an extract derived from the leaves of the Tea Tree shown to provide broad spectrum antimicrobial properties, particularly active on acne-producing bacteria. Acts as an anti-inflammatory and topical anesthetic.
Niacinamide (i.e. Nicotinamide) is the amide form of nicotinic acid (a.k.a. vitamin B3 or niacin) shown to improve skin moisturization, improve appearance of aging skin, promote even-tone and reduce the appearance of acne. Niacinimide has been shown to improve ceramide and fatty acid levels, stimulate fibroblast levels and collagen secretion, reduce melanosome activities and age spots, and improve acne due to its antimicrobial properties.
4-t-Butylcyclohexanol provides fast skin relief. It works as a cell signaling molecule and “sensi-regulator” to bring skin to a normal state and reduce irritation.
Pentylene Glycol has been shown to significantly alleviate stinging.
Arginine (Cell Penetrating Peptide) is a non-essential amino acid that benefits skin via cell-penetrating peptide properties, wound healing and collagen enhancement. This naturally occurring amino acid string has been shown to enhance cell permeation.
Rice Ferment Filtrate (Detoxifying Peptide) is a rice sake ferment rich in low molecular peptides, phosphoserine, ferulic acid, cysteine and cysteine. It has been shown to offer protective benefits, moisturize, smooth and soothe skin, detoxify, regenerate and provide antioxidant benefits.
