The Perfector: Poreless Tonic

Want glowing, clear, perfected skin? Poreless Tonic is just what you need! It goes deep into pores to remove dirt and acne while controlling oil using Salicylic Acid 2% and Papaya Enzymes. Skin is soothed and calmed, leaving you feeling and looking smooth and refreshed!

  • Sloughs away dead skin cells and controls excess oil
  • Penetrates deep into pores to remove dirt and cellular debris
  • Tightens pores and reduces shine on skin’s surface
  • Soothes skin and eliminates acne

The Clarifier: CleariCalm Tonic

Calm irritated skin with this soothing tonic. Clearicalm Tonic is a clarifying astringent toner that combats the accumulation of keratinized cells that clog pores causing breakouts. More gentle than Poreless Tonic, and customized for acne‑prone skin that presents redness, or even acne rosacea (papular rosacea). Mildly exfoliating Grapefruit Extract targets congestion often found in oily or combination skin. 

  • Offers mild exfoliation for oily skin, rosacea, and sensitive acne-prone skin
  • Niacinamide improves the skin’s barrier function
  • Water-soluble BioSulfur regulates hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands offering antibacterial and anti‑inflammatory benefits

The Fortifier: DefenCell Tonic

Get the best of hydration, comfort, and protection. DefenCell Tonic quenches dehydrated skin and calms irritation with a soothing formulation that alleviates sensitivity and inflammation. Fortified with skin defending actives, this daily use tonic is ideally suited to those who want moisture without harsh chemicals, fragrances, or added color.

  • Balances skin’s pH and removes mineral deposits that cause dryness
  • Accelerates the skin’s healing process and alleviates dermatitis 
  • Reduces inflammation and redness while replenishing the skin’s natural barrier function
