Designed for acneic and problem skin, the Medik8 betaCleanse offers a lightweight, gentle formula which leaves skin feeling cool, refreshed and thoroughly clean. Medik8 betaCleanse removes dirt, oil, impurities and make-up as well as unclogging pores, however it does not over dry the skin, cause irritation or strip the skin of its natural protective oils.
Medik8 betaCleanse 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, anti-fungal and anti-microbial effects. Niacinamide, on the other hand, provides potent anti-inflammatory activity without the risk of inducing bacterial resistance.
Medik8 betaCleanse is paraben-free, perfume-free, and SLES-free.
