why skin’s microbiome matters
Here’s how a balanced microbiome helps oily skin stay healthy:

microbiome balances

balance

A healthy microbiome hosts a balance of beneficial bacteria

microbiome blocks

It’s also a key part of the immune system, and blocks “bad” bacteria from the skin

microbiome protects

Plus, it protects skin’s natural moisture barrier – helping to keep skin hydrated and healthy

active clay cleanser

Prebiotic cleanser deeply purifies to help balance oily skin. Dual-action, mineral-rich clay and charcoal formula actively cleanses and purifies. Kaolin Clay absorbs excess oil, and Activated Binchotan Charcoal powerfully adsorbs impurities to help balance skin. Botanical lipids and Murumuru Seed work together to attract and remove excess oil from skin while helping to protect its natural lipid barrier and promote a healthy microbiome. A bioflavonoid-rich complex of Citrus, Aloe and Broccoli Extract helps purify pores while leaving skin smooth, refined and revitalized.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.
