What exactly is inside Gladskin's Acne Gel?

Have you ever actually looked at the ingredient list on one of our bottles? The list is relatively short. For example, for our Acne Gel, only nine ingredients made the cut.

That's because each ingredient has been carefully evaluated and only those which play a purposeful part have been included - without fragrances, alcohols, steroids, preservatives, parabens, or sulfates.

So what’s actually inside? Let's take a closer look at some of our most common ingredients:

Aqua

BENEFITS: Solvent, Hypoallergenic

Water (Aqua) is the most widely used cosmetic ingredient. It is mostly used as a solvent to dissolve other ingredients, or with oils to create emulsions.

Glycerin

BENEFITS: Humectant

Humectants keep things moist. Our plant-derived glycerin draws moisture from the air to hydrate the surface of the skin.

Arginine HCL

BENEFITS: Emollient

Think of this one as a conditioner for your skin. It has hydrating properties when applied topically and promotes skin healing. Exactly what brittle, cracked skin needs.

Calcium Chloride

BENEFITS: Increases viscosity, Stabilizer

Calcium Chloride is a mineral salt that also occurs in nature. It increases the viscosity of our creams and gels, making them easier to apply.

Sodium Chloride

BENEFITS: Stabilizer

Sodium chloride is just a fancy name for salt. To get a tough job done, we sometimes need a helpful push. Sodium chloride is a mineral salt that does just that for Staphefekt™, maximizing its potency so that a little goes a long way—and quickly, too. (Gladskin goes to work in just 5 minutes!)

Staphefekt™

BENEFITS: Targets bad bacteria, Helps to rebalance the microbiome

Think of this as the superhero! Staphefekt™ is the world's first enzyme that selectively targets only S. aureus, the ‘bad’ bacteria, that can aggravate skin conditions such as acne. What makes it even more special: It leaves the good bacteria, necessary for healthy skin, intact.*

Calcium Chloride

BENEFITS: Increases viscosity, Stabilizer

Calcium Chloride is a mineral salt that also occurs in nature. It increases the viscosity of our creams and gels, making them easier to apply.
