Are you looking for a quick fix for that huge zit on your chin? A pump or two of stinging serum that will dry it out before Friday night's romantic date?
If that's the case, you'd better hit the back button. Here at GR8/SKN, we don't believe in skincare short-cuts. Sure, our products help fight breakouts, but our company is dedicated to maintaining skin health in the long-run.
JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED
While it might be cool to say that our products are derived from a newly-discovered South American fern species, that would be a lie. GR8/SKN products are backed with some serious credentials. With a strong family history of melanoma, Dr. Janine Ellenberger (MB, ChB, MMedSc), a South African-trained physician with more than 20 years of experience in the medical and cosmetic fields, formulated them for her own sons when they hit that pimple-plagued phase of development: puberty. Thanks to these two guinea pigs, we can deliver products with proven results. "Teen tested"--well, you know the rest. With GR8/SKN, we're taking power away from big companies and putting it in your hands--and on your face.
FACE FRIENDLY / EARTH FRIENDLY
Yeah, we care about your face, but we also care about the face of our planet. That's why our products are biodegradable, made in an FDA-approved facility, and come in recyclable packaging. We don't see why we can't split our allegiance.
IT'S WHATS ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS
We use ingredients that you can actually pronounce—natural stuff, like lavender extract, honeybush tea, and honeysuckle. Why is this important? Because, as your largest organ, your skin absorbs 60% of the products you apply to it. Would you want to soak up some yummy benzoyl peroxide tonight? No, we didn't think so.
Moreover, ingredients like benzoyl peroxide (BPO) lose efficacy over time, which means you'll have to increase your dose. That might not seem like such a big deal, but BPO, a common ingredient in other anti-acne products, causes dryness and irritation.
