Skin Concerns |
Hyperpigmentaion (dark spots), uneven skin tone, dullness
The most well-known form of hyperpigmentation is from the result of injury or inflammation to the skin, most commonly from acne.
Melanin rich skin tones are highly susceptible to dark spots due to the increased production of melanin.
BALANCE is the ideal solution to treating hyperpigmentation as it is formulated with gentle ingredients that don't irritate or inflame the skin. It lightens dark spots while naturally hydrating the skin.

What is the BALANCE Cleanser?
BALANCE Face Cleanser is a water-based cleanser developed to target darks spots formed by acne. This cleanser is an anti-inflammatory powerhouse that gently cleanses, all while providing glow and luster to the skin.
Is this cleanser good for removing dark spots?
Absolutely!! Its key ingredient is turmeric which aids in evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of acne scars.
I have heard that turmeric can be staining, it this true?
Yup, definitely not a myth! In fact, it may be the only downside to using turmeric. We have found that our cleanser has minimal staining. When applied to the skin, it can temporarily stain the skin or leave a yellow residue. Completely normal. We just recommend you rinse off completely and follow with a toner to remove any traces of turmeric, if any. But if you’re allergic, direct skin contact can cause irritation, redness, and swelling.
