THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE FORMULA
Circular Chevron Icon
science behind Zoom In Icon

At Medik8, we recognize that congested skin is sensitive skin. Overloading the skin (particularly sensitive, congested skin) with high strength treatments can result in an impaired skin barrier leading to damage, inflammation and further congestion. That's why we expertly formulated Press & Clear to deliver powerful results, while supporting the skin barrier to maintain a healthy complexion. Many other BHA toners use low pHs, following the traditional theory that for an exfoliating acid to work, it requires a low pH to ‘activate’ within the skin. This is true for many acids, but salicylic acid is unique in that it is proven to be just as effective at exfoliating your skin at a neutral pH. Press & Clear's neutral pH of 5.5 matches that of the skin, retaining all of the power of 2% salicylic acid while making it much more suitable for the specific needs of sensitive, congested skin types.
