Key Ingredients

10% Clarity Acid Complex™

  • 2% Encapsulated Salicylic Acid (BHA): Closer to skin’s pH level, this encapsulated form of salicylic acid gently dissolves blemish-causing buildup and balances oil with minimized irritation.
  • Mandelic Acid (AHA) A larger exfoliating molecule that smooths rough texture and slowly penetrates for minimal irritation.

Strawberry:

Naturally occurring enzymes found in strawberry water and leaf extract work to hydrate & resurface skin while reducing production of excess oil.

Azelaic Acid Liposome:

Boosts the performance of salicylic acid to gently calm sensitized, blemish-prone skin and provide a brightened complexion.

Succinic Acid:

A naturally derived acid that hydrates, soothes, & decongests your skin

Hyaluronic Acid:

A holy grail hydrator that retains 1000 times its weight in water and plumps and restores moisture to the skin (a.k.a all day hydration!)

Allantoin:

A moisturizing skin protectant that also smooths the skin.

Bisabolol:

A soothing form of vitamin B with skin brightening benefits.

FAQ

What is the proper way to store my Strawberry Serum?

Keep in a cool, dry place. Do not keep in direct light.

Can you use it day and night?

Yes! If this is your first time using an acid treatment we recommend patch testing first and gradually introducing the serum into your routine. Our formula is gentle enough to be used either day or night or both, even with the high percentage of acids. The encapsulated salicylic acid we chose is closer to skin’s natural pH level while the mandelic acid is a larger exfoliating molecule that penetrates skin slowly - both producing real results with minimized irritation.
If used during the day, make sure to wear sunscreen at the end of your skincare routine.

Are there any other ingredients to avoid when using this serum?

This formula pairs great with most ingredients, except benzoyl peroxide. There’s a common misconception that salicylic acid (BHA) cannot be used while using retinol products, which is not the case. The two ingredients can actually work synergistically together to be more effective. People with oily skin that are not particularly sensitive may be able to tolerate using both on a daily basis. People with more dry or sensitive skin, can ease into using both ingredients into their routine by using a salicylic acid formula in the day and retinol at night. As always, we recommend patch testing.

What is the recyclability of the packaging?

Every part of this packaging is recyclable. The glass bottle and the entire carton can be recycled curbside. The plastic cap and pump can be recycled through our Terracycle program. Don’t forget to rinse out the bottle before recycling!

    Smooth

    This serum genuinely helped sedate my occasional pimples and helped smooth my forehead so it's no longer bumpy.

    Love it

    I have extremely sensitive and dry skin so I was immediately hooked once I found out how well it worked on my skin. Only thing is that it’s hard to use with other skin care products, so my skin has become more dry than usual. But all in all I highly recommend it :)

    does what it says!

    I have a bit of uneven texture I wanted to address, and so I added this to my AM routine (previously switched from the guava serum, also used the pinapple serum). It has been about a month since I started using this, and I can actually tell that my skin is smoother and more even. It isn't often that I notice a difference with serums, so I will be sticking to this one for awhile!
