Willow Bark Salicin Acne Serum

Leave stressful breakouts behind with this uplifting, acne fighting serum. Clear breakouts with willow bark extract, containing salicin a gentle and non toxic version of the synthetic salicylic acid found in most cosmetics. Holy Grail is made with essential oils that are energizing and acne fighting. It’s a gentle yet highly effective acne serum to:

  • exfoliate, unclog pores, and clear acne
  • balance oil production without drying out the skin
  • calm redness and soothe inflamed skin around breakouts
  • reduce the appearance of dark spots or scarring from acne
  • hydrate and protect the skin barrier

Aromatherapy Benefits:

Infused with a pure essential oil blend (100% natural with no hidden fragrances) of tea tree, rosemary, lime, and lavender. Providing an uplifting aroma known in aromatherapy to be energizing.

Skin Benefits:

Many acne treatments intentionally dry out the skin to clear pimples. But this actually ends up causing more breakouts in the future because your skin feels that dryness and starts to overproduce oil. Not to mention these harsh treatments are commonly packed with toxins and hormone disrupting ingredients.

Salicin (a gentle, natural alternative to salicylic acid) is naturally found in willow bark extract. It’s effective at fighting acne and safe for all skin types. (yes, even sensitive skin) We paired this powerful ingredient with an essential oil blend that works to clear acne, calm inflammation and energize the mood.

The Details

Willow bark extract contains naturally occurring salicin and is much gentler and safer than the synthetic salicylic acid found in most cosmetics which is believed to be a toxin, hormone disruptor, and drying to the skin.

Willow bark extract on the other hand is rated safe and non toxic by the EWG. It exfoliates deep within the skin to unclog pores and clear acne. Balancing oil production to reduce excessive oiliness without drying out the skin. It’s also anti inflammatory to calm redness and soothe inflamed skin around current breakouts.

Tea tree and lavender essential oils fight acne while soothing redness, calming inflammation, and reducing the appearance of scarring. Tea tree fights acne causing bacteria for a clear complexion while lavender’s soothing abilities calm painful breakouts.

Chaga extract stimulates collagen production to hydrate skin and protect the skin barrier. A damaged skin barrier can not only make acne worse, but it can also be the root cause of acne in some people. Protecting this barrier will help keep skin soft and smooth. It will also help reduce scarring, irritations, and dark spots from breakouts.

Tea Tree reduces anxiety and promotes mental clarity. It’s also calming and soothing to inflamed or irritated skin. Tea tree helps to fight acne causing bacteria clearing current breakouts and preventing future ones.

Rosemary is energizing, clears the mind, and helps to improve concentration and focus for the day ahead. It also helps to even skin tone, decongest pores, and balance oil production to prevent breakouts.

Lime is uplifting, energizing, and promotes more relaxed and cheerful moods. It also controls excess oil on the skin, clear acne causing bacteria, and lighten dark spots caused by sun damage or acne scars.

Lavender is famous for being incredibly relaxing, stress relieving, and easing tension. And for the skin, it helps fight acne, reduce wrinkles, and calm redness. So it is the perfect pair for both sensitive and acne prone skin types.

Acne Serum Scent Description:

  • Acne prone, Oily + Combo skin – Salicin in willow bark extract, tea tree oil, and lavender oil are all known for their ability to clear acne and prevent future breakouts. This serum was specifically formulated to exfoliate deep within the skin to unclog pores for clearer, smoother skin.
  • Sensitive skin – we strive to make all of our products gentle and safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Willow bark in this serum contains naturally occurring salicin, a salicylic acid alternative, that is rated non toxic by the EWG and is much gentler on the skin than the synthetic skin-drying salicylic acid commonly found in cosmetics. Pair that with chaga extract and plant oils that hydrate and protect the skin barrier to calm any skin inflammation or irritations.
  • Dry skin – if you have dry skin and struggle with breakouts than this serum is for you. The hydrating and skin barrier protecting properties will drastically improve the complexion of dry skin types while fighting acne.
Hormonal acne

Use this acne serum as a spot treatment for hormonal breakouts or random pimples that pop up here and there. It doesn’t have to be used day and night to be effective. Simply apply to pimples and the surrounding area to calm inflamed skin around breakouts, clear the acne bacteria, and hydrate skin to avoid scarring.

Acne Prone Skin

Use this serum both morning and night to clear acne and reduce the chance for future breakouts. Consistency is key if you struggle with oily or acne prone skin.

Our clarifying serums are suitable for all skin types and tones including sensitive skin.

The Ritual:

How: Apply about 3-4 drops onto cleansed skin. Use after a toner in your routine. Gently start massaging the tea tree oil serum into the skin in circular motions.

Close your eyes for a minute, take a couple of deep breaths, and be present in the moment to activate the full aromatherapy benefits infused in this acne serum. Use the energizing and uplifting properties to start your day off on a cheerful note or in the evening note 3 things you’re grateful for about your day. While you’re taking a moment to reflect, continue massaging the salicylic acid serum into your skin until it’s fully absorbed.

Complete your evening routine:

To continue your energizing routine, light a mood boosting Orange Clove candle while getting ready for the day.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight to support the integrity of the natural ingredients. Use within 6 months.

✅Pro Tip: Use this serum as an acne spot treatment to clear hormonal acne or those random pimples that pop up when you forget to take of your makeup. Acne prone skin will want to apply the serum more consistently. But anyone else can use it when a breakout occurs to speed up unclogging pores, reducing redness and helping to prevent scarring.
