Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil or dead skin cells released from the skin. Acne is usually characterized by greasy skin, whiteheads, blackheads and pimples which may sometimes result in scarring. The resulting appearance can many a times lead to anxiety and a reduced sense of self esteem.
Innumerable treatments exist in the market which claim to effectively combat acne, but most of the common treatments include Azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid as active ingredients which serve to dry out the skin without making the breakouts stop.
We believe acne should be treated by strengthening and nourishing the skin through the use of natural ingredients found in Fuller's Earth/Multani Mitti(Magnesium Chloride), Saffron(Antiseptic Oxide Content), Borax/Suhaga(Antibacterial exfoliants), jojoba Oil(Vitamin A, E), Turmeric(Antiseptic). These natural ingredients help in rebalancing the microbiome of the skin thus ensuring that acne is treated naturally without causing any long term damage to the skin.
