Clarion

Clarion is an exfoliating night serum designed for deep cleansing of pores and improving texture and hyperpigmentation on problematic skin prone to breakouts and comedones. This potent exfoliator has a minimalistic formula which includes 4% glycolic acid, 2% salicylic acid and liquorish, green tea and rhodiola extracts (pH 3.3).

The active components in this product normalise excessive secretion of sebum and reduce the negative effects of follicular hyperkeratosis (in other words, fights accumulation of dead skin cells around follicles which leads to clogged pores and in turn, clinically more serious skin conditions). Salicylic and glycolic acid have a synergistic keratolytic effect, preventing clogged pores and improving the functioning of acne-prone skin.

As a spot treatment against irregularities, Clarion may be used on all skin types but due to its specific ability to reduce sebum production, its use on the entire face is especially recommended for combination and oily skin. On oily, combination and sensitive skin it is recommended to first start using Clarion every other day to let the skin get accustomed to more frequent use, while users already used to AHA and BHA products will be able to use this exfoliator every night as a first step after cleansing.

Clarion has a watery texture which absorbs quickly and completely and a slightly acidic, herbal scent. After application of the serum it is recommended to nourish the skin well and use an SPF product during the day. Formulated without the addition of parabens, denaturated alcohol or ethanol, artificial fragrances, dyes and other irritants, it is packaged in an opaque glass container with dropper.

How does Clarion repair skin function?

Clarion is a minimalistic cosmeceutical formula. Glycolic and salicylic acid are key ingredients, paired with plant extracts such as liquorice and green tea. Both these plant compounds are known sebostatic and anti-inflammatory agents, which prevent the formation of reactive oxygen species and thus work as antioxidants. Salicylic acid dislodges leftover skin cells and sebum within the pore and calms inflammation. Glycolic acid changes the texture and pigmentation of stratum corneum, smoothes it and clarifies.

Why is this a “night” serum?

Simply put, exfoliants with AHAs can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. There is no need to use Clarion only during night-time, but we encourage it because it is the most effective during night. Daily sun protection should be in your everyday skincare regimen, but especially if you use an exfoliant so make sure to protect your skin from the UV rays. 

Can I use Clarion on dry skin?

As a serum, Clarion is recommended only for combination / oily skin. But you can spot treat occasional acne bumps and sebaceous filaments on oilier parts (like the T zone) with Clarion, just make sure to hydrate the skin properly afterwards. 

Is Clarion suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes, because the formula is so minimalistic and contains no unnecessary irritants. However, exfoliation by itself can be a little irritating and should not be done on compromised skin so avoid using it while you have active rosacea, skin damage like cuts and burns or if you are allergic or intolerant to any ingredient. 

Who should not be using Clarion?

Because it contains 2% BHA in a fast absorbing and ultra-slip formula, we recommend against using it if you are allergic to salicylic acid (or any acetylsalicylate derivative) or if you are pregnant because there is not enough data to verify that potential systemic absorption of ASA is well below safety threshold for expecting women.
