Our Clarifying Cleanser C2 is specially formulated for oily and congested skin, and doubles as a glycolic face peel. A powerful triple blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids purifies pores and minimises redness, while gently resurfacing your skin.

2% Salicylic acid allows the product to penetrate pores, removing trapped dirt, excess oil and helping to treat blemishes such as blackheads and whiteheads. This clarifying cleanser is gentle enough to protect your skin’s natural protective barrier, but thorough enough to strip your skin of impurities, leaving you with a fantastic, fresh feeling.

Available as a scented or unscented clarifying cleanser. The scented option contains cold-pressed mandarin essential oil.
