Acne.org Cleanser

When treating acne, the first step is to cleanse the skin. Cleansing removes oil, dirt, and pollution so that the treatment you apply can effectively penetrate. However, cleansing should be performed correctly, with only bare hands, using a featherlight touch for 10 seconds or less. This might seem fast, but any form of skin irritation can make acne worse, so it is vitally important to stay gentle and brief when washing your skin.

I made this generously sized ultra-gentle liquid cleanser so we would have a pH-balanced cleanser which doesn't over-dry and is gentle enough for people with sensitive, acne-prone skin. It also lathers very well, which helps provide a gentle and quick cleansing experience, further helping to prevent irritation.

It is also unscented and dye-free. Fragrances and dyes can sometimes irritate the skin, and since irritation can lead to acne, it’s best to opt for unscented and dye-free products.


Acne.org AHA+ (Glycolic Acid - 10%)

Acne.org AHA+ contains 10% glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid – AHA), which is the legal limit in over-the-counter products. It also contains licochalcone, an ultra-calming licorice root extract. Acne-prone skin tends to be irritated, and licochalcone helps calm the irritation and bring the skin into balance. It is fragrance-free and dye-free, and of course, it is completely non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores).

I formulated Acne.org AHA+ at a pH of 4.0 - 4.1, which is just enough to powerfully exfoliate, but not too acidic that it stings too badly (it will sting a bit though – that’s how you know it’s working). Oddly enough, many manufacturers formulate their glycolic acid products at too high a pH to be effective, so be careful when choosing glycolic acid products, and make sure you know the pH.

What is licochalcone?

Licochalcone gives this product its characteristic yellow color. It is a highly distilled and potent extract of a species of licorice root well known for powerfully calming the skin. It is especially beneficial on acne-prone skin which tends to be sensitive and irritated. Licochalcone is included in AHA+ at the ideal efficacious amount (.1%) and not simply for "label claim." If you suspect you may be allergic to licorice root, patch test your skin by applying some AHA+ to your inner elbow for 2 days before applying to the body or neck.

Note: To avoid staining light colored clothing, allow Acne.org AHA+ to absorb and dry for a minute or so before dressing.

sun SUNBURN ALERT: Any alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using AHA and for a week after discontinuing its use.
