L'ADRIA Clarifying serum, in its gentle watery drops, holds the secret of skin purification. The uniquely skin-friendly 2 % BHA formula with extremolytes and hydrating algae from the Adriatic, one of the purest seas in the world, helps to unclog pores and reduce imperfections while improving overall skin appearance and protecting the skin barrier function. Free from petrochemical solvents and ethyl alcohol, it is non-drying and hydrating, gentle to both skin and the environment.
L'ADRIA CLARIFYING SERUM is inspired by the gentle clarifying effect of the sea.
The watery droplets contain the essence of the sea, algae and extremolytes, special molecules that help marine organisms survive extreme conditions, combined with the purifying BHA, or salicylic acid.
2 % of BHA formulated in an acidic environment can penetrate and decongest pores, while extremolytes protect skin from potential negative effects of BHA products – peeling skin, dehydration, irritation and sun sensitivity. In addition, the serum does not contain ethyl alcohol nor the environmentally unfriendly petrochemical solvents, which can be drying to skin.
The most famous extremolyte is ectoin. It is a natural molecule found in halophyllic organisms, that live exposed to high concentrations of salt. Although discovered in a salty puddle in a desert, ectoin is found in marine organisms as well. You might imagine such conditions as a puddle by the sea, filled with sea water, allowed to slowly condense to form crystals of salt. Ectoin and other extremolytes such as betaine create a hydration shield around cellular structures and molecules, protecting them from stressful outer influences, including UV rays. This is especially important while using exfoliants, that reduce the thickness of the outer skin layer, thus increasing the sensitivity to the sun. But, we like to call L'ADRIA CLARIFYING SERUM a serum rather than a classic exfoliant, due to its mild effects that are suited for long term use on oily, problematic and sensitive skin, with reduced risks of negative effects caused by exfoliants. Still, we recommend to use an SPF while using this product.
