Combine the age-long superfood benefits of papaya with a high concentration of naturally-sourced salicylic acid, throw in our cult-favorite amino acid blend and you’ll end up with visibly clear skin results. Over the past 8 months, we’ve researched and curated our newest addition to the family – our Refresh Papaya + Salicylic Acid Cleanser. We love it and we think you’ll love it too!
1. A salicylic acid for all skin types
While any skincare product with the word “acid” can be intimidating, our salicylic acid cleanser is an effective product for all skin types. For oily/ acne-prone skin, Refresh can be used as your daily cleanser to help reduce oil build-up. If your skin is more dry and dehydrated, the Refresh cleanser will exfoliate dead skin cells on the surface – start off using once or twice a week and see how your skin feels! We always formulate with sensitive skin in mind.
2. Fights blemishes and blackheads, but gently
Once it penetrates the skin, Refresh dissolves skin debris that clogs pores, acts as an anti-inflammatory and also helps red inflamed pimples and pustules go away faster. It helps reduce blackheads by directly dissolving the keratin plugs and regulating the skin cells. Because our salicylic acid comes naturally-derived from Aspen bark extract, you won’t have to worry about it being harsh and damaging to your skin.
3. Get brighter and even skin for longer
Most people know that vitamin C is a powerhouse ingredient for skin brightening (we use it in our favorite Dew Drops serum too!) but we’re taking it step further. To maintain that level of glow for longer, we’ve added exfoliation to the mix by using our hero ingredient, papaya.
Papaya contains the enzyme papain that acts as a strong skin exfoliator and removes the dead cells. We formulated Refresh with an exfoliating ingredient alongside vitamin C because with proper exfoliation, your vitamin C will be able to penetrate better when dead skin cells are exfoliated away.
4. A bit of foam, without the chemicals
Foaming cleansers can be a ton of fun to use but did you know that it’s only because it contains synthetic surfactants that are added in a chemical lab and doesn’t actually have any skin benefits? Our cleanser has a slight foamy texture to lather with and we only used natural surfactants and no added synthetic ingredients.
5. Moisturizes thirsty skin
Even though almost everyone follows up their cleanser with a moisturizer, we couldn’t leave out hydration as one of the key benefits of Refresh. The rich array of antioxidants and enzymes present in papaya help in treating dry and flaky skin so you’ll be able to maintain that fresh look all day long.
