Medik8 Clarifying Foam
Anti-Bacterial Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser
Designed for acneic and problem skin, Medik8 Clarifying Foam is a lightweight, gentle formula that leaves skin feeling cool, refreshed and thoroughly clean removing dirt, oil, impurities and make-up as well as uncloging pores but without over drying the skin, causing irritation or stripping its natural protective oils.
Clarifying Foam contains a powerful complex of active ingredients, including 2% Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, L-Mandelic acid, Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Tea Tree Oil. These actives improve the function of the skin and regulate the work of sebaceous glands. Salicylic Acid helps the skin to shed dead cells, decreases redness and inflammation, prevents pore-clogging and refines skin texture. L-mandelic acid is a unique lipid-soluble alpha hydroxy acid allowing pore-deep cleansing together with Glycolic acid style exfoliation but without the stinging. Chlorhexidine Gluconate (included as a preservative) and Tea Tree oil are well known for their numerous antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal and anti-microbial effects. Niacinamide, on the other hand, provides potent anti-inflammatory activity without the risk of inducing bacterial resistance.

Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) may cause initial flaking, tingling or irriation to the skin. For some this may be part of the normal resurfacing process.This generally improves as the skin ‘gets used’ to the treatment. AHA products may be introduced with less frequent use, and application can be increased as the skin acclimates. At first start by gradually introducing one AHA product at a time into your skincare regime.
Discontinue use if you have severe redness, itching, burning, rash, swelling or blistering.
It is recommended to apply a sunscreen daily when using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA's).
Clarifying Foam contains no Parabens and no SLES (or similar harsh detergents) which can irritate the skin and is 100% soap free
