Generally though if your skin is typical Oily/Combination then we would recommend the following:

  • Organic Cleansing Foam
  • Organic Witch Hazel Tonic (oily skin) or Organic Lavender Tonic (combination skin)
  • Organic Regenerating Serum
  • Organic Moisturizing Cream
  • Organic Antiwrinkle Mask

Our cleansing foam is very delicate with every skin type, and is especially effective in acne prone skin, due to its antibacterial / antiseptic ingredients. It also contains probiotic-based ingredient created by the fermentation of Lactobacillus, which produce a complex of active biomolecules able to enhance oxygen consumption, to increase collagen production and to decrease free radicals formation. They provide a conditioning and revitalizing action.

For very oily skin, our Organic Witch Hazel is the right choice to help with sebum control. Its antibacterial and antiseptic properties also help with your acne. On the other hand, for combination skin our Organic Lavender Tonic is ideal, since it helps with sebum control, but without drying out your skin even in long term use. If you have combination skin, you don’t have to worry about your dry areas on your skin if you use Lavender Tonic.

The Organic Regenerating Serum is the perfect choice to regenerate those acne scars. It also helps your skin from pigmentation and photo-aging, so its a win-win situation.

Our Organic Moisturizer Cream is very light and fast absorbing. It fits perfect when used after the Tonic and Serum, and you don’t have to worry about the shiny forehead or nose. It leaves the skin very soft and dewy.

The Organic Antiwrinkle Mask contains white clay, which helps calm the redness in your face. It has regenerating properties and helps accelerate the healing process of your acne.

Please note: For more serious cases of acne we would recommend you consult with a Doctor or Dermatologist.
