Acne: skin’s arch enemy. When faced with a breakout, we’ll go to great lengths to stop pimples in their tracks. After desperate measures and multiple acne treatments, we realize too late that we may have done more damage than damage control.

Common acne products are laden with harsh alcohols and chemicals, which can actually worsen your acne instead of offering long term solutions. It’s time to scout the enemy territory and fight back with natural acne treatments! We’re unveiling the benefits of plant-based ingredients, and how our newest collection will have you saying adios to those pesky pimples!

Why We Use Plant-Based Ingredients (and Avoid Common Ones)

We have a long history of plant-based natural acne treatments – and for good reason! The natural healing and antibacterial properties of plant-derived ingredients are second to none.

Rather than stripping your skin of essential moisture or aggravating acne, plant-based treatments can naturally calm acne inflammation and keep your skin’s pH in balance. Natural acne treatments can also be more approachable for dry or sensitive skin types than those made with harsh alcohols and acids.

With that in mind, it’s no wonder why we would steer clear of using common ingredients found in most mainstream acne products. These culprits include chemicals, acids, alcohols, and other stripping ingredients. These skin-irritating ingredients are not only stressing out your skin care, they are also wreaking havoc on your skin.

We want to avoid acne treatment products with excess alcohol, and especially acne treatment products that contain pore-clogging silicone. Alternative acne therapies with ingredients such as tea tree oil have been more popular for their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects. They’re also more desirable than conventional treatments, due to fewer known side effects.

If you’re already deep into enemy territory, don’t stress! We’ve got your back with a new collection of super concentrated natural acne treatments.

Our Newest Natural Acne Treatment Collection

Researching and utilizing the best ingredients for acne is what we do best! While we (begrudgingly) accept that certain factors out of our control can trigger acne – hormones, medications, environmental elements – we know that we can control which products we use. They must harmonize with our unique skin type, and should focus on specific areas of concern instead of acting as a ‘blanket’ treatment that might be too harsh for our skin.

Tea tree oil is a true acne-fighter, and a natural alternative to common chemicals that will have pimples packing up for good. Known for its superstar antibacterial and anti-inflammatory powers, this essential oil is the holy grail for natural acne treatments. That’s precisely why it’s a star ingredient in our newest acne treatment collection!

Without further ado, say hello to our newest acne treatment team!
