What makes this product unique?

Astonishingly, the earliest research on Totarol dates back to 1990s. Sustainably sourced from the heartwood of New Zealand Totara trees, research shows this incredibly potent organic ingredient effectively prevents the proliferation of gram-positive bacteria, at concentration as low as 0.1%. Specifically, Totarol constrains bacterial cytokinesis (the cell division process that replicates more daughter cells), thereby stopping formation of acne from the first origin.

Coupled with the bacteriacidal IPMP (Isopropyl Methylphenol), Bffect Totara Acid-Free Anti-Acne Essence gives no room for Cutibacterium Acnes (gram-positive bacterium involved in the pathogenesis of acne) to reproduce and cause inflamed acne on skin.

Cytobiol™ Iris A² from the experienced pharmaceutical company, Gattefosse, is a trademarked blend of Iris Rhizome Extract, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) and Zinc Sulfate. These pore-purifying, mattifying and rebalancing agents target the cause of excessive sebum production (the food for Cutibacterium Acnes), ultimately erasing acne breakouts by ceasing the reproduction of the acne-causing bacteria.
