Blemishes and adult acne are both a cause and effect of skin stress.
Most acne treatments use harsh cleansing agents and chemical peels which can damage the skin's barrier layer, dehydrate the skin and affect the skin's pH allowing the harmful bacteria to flourish and cause acne. The bacteria that cause acne also cause the skin to become inflammed and trigger an inflamation cascade of skin harmful enzymes that can erode collagen and elastin in the skin. This is why acne prone skin also often ages prematurely.
The S5 range uses extracts from the Amazon rainforest that act as a gentle but ultra effective anti bacterial. In clinical tests they have been proven to reduce the appearance of blemishes by 43% and oil production by 65%. We combine these specific ingredients with anti ageing Marine Bioactives and protective Arctic adaptogens, to reduce the stress levels of the skin and tackle the visible signs of damage.
S5 products are ideal for sensitive, acne prone skin and are free from parabens, SLS/SLES, PEGS, DEA, Mineral Oil, Silicon, Propylene Glycol, GMO or synthetic fragrances.
All S5 products are EcoCert certified organic and use only 100% natural active ingredients.
