Rescue Acne Foaming Cleanser has been meticulously created to nurture and protect the skin’s all-important moisture barrier which is vital to clear glowing skin. It is a known fact that over-cleansing and stripping the skin of vital oils, using harsh detergents means more production of oil and more acne.
This gentle foaming cleanser contains plant-based biodegradable surfactants (cleansing agents) that respect the skin’s pH and moisture balance. These include oats amino acids, sugar, and coconut-derived cleansing agents, proven to be gentler on the skin and just as important, safer for the environment. It is delicately infused with a biodegradable micelle-surfactant (cleansing agent) containing a small number of oil molecules such as Glyceryl Oleate to further help to dissolve makeup residue and oil.
The addition of White Willow Bark (natural salicylic acid) in this foaming cleanser helps to stimulate the natural exfoliation on the skin surface where impurities accumulate. It has excellent antioxidant protection and antimicrobial action. Reducing inflammation and redness and delivering all the benefits associated with synthetic salicylic acid which is commonly used in mainstream products. Above all, it is proven that the willow bark is more gentle and non-drying on the skin.

White Willow Bark Extract
A natural alternative to synthetic Salicylic Acid that is much gentler on the skin. It penetrates the skin making it softer and easier to unclog surface debris, making pores appear smaller and more refined, reducing redness, alleviating irritation. The natural salicylates found in White Willow Bark increase the rate of cellular renewal, ensuring that dull, dead skin cells make way for bright radiant skin.
Lemon Myrtle Extract
An Australian active ingredient, specially designed to improve control of oily skin caused by environmental aggressions like pollution. In addition, this extract is clinically proven to reduce the overproduction of sebum & shine and protect skin from oxidative stress. It has excellent antibacterial and fungicide properties.
Oats Amino Acids
A natural cleansing and foaming agent that is sulphate-free, which actually gives the finished product a gentle silky lather.
(Palm Free) – Derived from corn sugars, this is a great natural alternative to Propylene glycol. It has a non-sticky feel on the skin and has two functions in this formula: as a preservative booster & as a humectant which is the process where water is drawn to the skin which helps combat dehydrated skin.
A moisturizing active derived from sugar beet that is 100% of plant origin and happens to be naturally present in our skin. It is very hydrophilic, therefore it loves water/moisture so it prevents water loss and keeps skin hydrated for a longer period of time. Betaine also improves the foam structure and stability of this rinse-off product.
Dispense 2-3 pumps into your palm and gently massage onto your damp face and neck area in circular motions for at least two minutes. Following this, make sure not to scrub as it can push impurities back into your pores and make the acne worse. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Gently pat dry with a clean towel and avoid rubbing.
Safe to use morning & night.
