The Active Serum by iS CLINICAL does just that. This incredible serum is made up of medical-grade ingredients that are highly effective in changing the texture and tone of your skin.
I was introduced to iS CLINICAL l products early on in my esthetics career and instantly fell in LOVE. The Active Serum has a cult following and has gained momentum over the years including many celebrities who rave about the iS CLINICAL line, including Beyoncé, Eva Mendes, Shay Mitchell, Chloë Sevigny, Jay-Z, Lucy Hale, and January Jones, to name a few.
The Active Serum is made up of saccharum officinarum (sugar cane) extract, vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry) extract, salix alba (willow) bark extract, arbutin, polyporus umbellatus (mushroom), and menthol.
The sugar cane extract is derived from, well, the sugar cane plant and is used as an antiseptic and natural exfoliant that smooths and brightens the skin’s appearance. The bilberry extract is a source of lactic acid that is amazing in cell turnover without dehydrating the skin. The willow bark extract is derived from the bark of willow trees and is used to make salicylic acid.
Salicylic has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which is great for clearing the pores and alleviating acne. The arbutin is a natural form of hydroquinone that is extracted from the bearberry plant. Applied topically it inhibits tyrosinase - the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin in the skin - and thus prevents the formation of melanin (pigmentation). The mushroom extract is known as kojic acid in skin care and is renowned for its skin-brightening properties. The menthol in the Active Serum is responsible for a noticeable cooling sensation when the serum is applied and helps with calming any redness, or irritation of the skin.
The combination of these powerhouse ingredients is what makes the Active Serum so effective and powerful in treating the skin. I have seen this serum work wonders on blemish-prone skin, pigmented skin, large pores, and fine lines.
The iS CLINICAL line including the Active Serum is completely pregnant and breastfeeding safe as all the ingredients do not enter the bloodstream. That is so rare for such an effective and active product.
iS CLINICAL Active Serum is your active ingredient that should be used as part of your night-time routine. A couple drops should be applied every other night after cleansing the skin and before your moisturizer. Consistency is key in a well-balanced skin care routine and it won’t be long until you see the results of this remarkable serum that I truly believe in.
iS CLINICAL has been reviewed and highly recommended in many publications including ELLE Magazine, Haper's Bazaar, Refinery 29, Ask Men, Brides, and Cosmopolitan.
