Skin Concerns |
Hyperpigmentation (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 a face polish?
Our face polish is an exfoliant to help with removing dead skin cells, brighten skin, and to promote the healthy production of new skin cells.
Should I use before or after cleansing?
Cleansing prior to using the polish is a great way to have skin primed before using the polish. However, it's a personal preference and does not alter the effectiveness of the product.
Can I use everyday?
Not at all! It's best to not use the body polish everyday, instead limit to 1-3 times a week. Exfoliating too often can result in dry, irritated, sensitive skin. For those with dry and sensitive skin, we recommend reducing to once a week.
Why is a preservative used?
Your body polish is likely to be stored in an open-necked jar in a steamy bathroom where it will come into contact with wet fingers. Because of this have added a preservative. We are simply preserving the water that will be added during the product’s use.
