An independent clinical testing facility ran a 6 week study in which 32 female subjects completed testing. Subjects were evaluated with Visia Image Analysis Pro, Lesion counting with a Board-certified Dermatologist and trained technician. Upon completion of the testing period, data was analyzed and evaluated.
Probiotics optimize the healing benefits of our skin’s good bugs, acting as a protective shield against bad bacteria, dialing down inflammation, and preventing premature aging in skin.
WHY WE LOVE IT
“I recommend this product for those who suffer from dry skin build up and clogging, particularly in the winter months, or those who get seasonal blemishes. Enzymes gently exfoliate to clear out pores while probiotics continue to keep blackheads and light pimples at bay.” — Liz Whitman, Founder
Enzymes gently resurface the skin, resulting in smooth, even texture and a brighter skin tone, all while clearing the way for more efficient product penetration.
Willow Bark Extract is a gentle exfoliant that removes dead skin cells and excess oil, calms redness, and helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Replenishes cell moisture, reduces appearance of wrinkles, accelerates wound healing, and helps skin appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated.
4 MOLECULAR WEIGHTS
High Molecular Sodium Hyaluronate forms a protective yet light film on the skin surface to prevent water loss, and leaves a smooth even layer on skin.
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular weight and absorbs more deeply into the surface layers of the skin to plump and restore the skin from within. This deeper hydration helps ensure “actives” get to where they need to be and also helps with lines and wrinkles itself.
Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate is both hydrophilic and lipophilic which increases skin affinity and “anchors” to skin, which also helps ensure the “actives” work more efficiently and over time and boosts elasticity itself.
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer is cross-linked to act like a “sponge” or “reservoir” for continuous hydration and longer-lasting overall benefits.
Clear Comeback can be used morning or evening. Apply to damp, clean skin and layer underneath moisturizer or SPF.
Your serum is activated when fully dissolved, usually within 8 seconds of combining the Active Powder with the Hydrator.
Active Powders can be used interchangeably in our Activator with the same Hydrator so you can mix and match your AM and PM routine easily.
We recommend you either refrain from using Clear Comeback while pregnant or lactating or consult your doctor first. Our Probiotic Enzyme Powder contains Willow Bark, a standardized form of Salicylic Acid.
Remove Rubber Cap from Dispenser. Place your Globe + Dispenser onto the Bowl with the Dispenser side down. Gently push the Globe down and twist clockwise. You will hear a few small clicks—then a “thunk” at about 90 degrees.
Lift Globe to reveal 1 dose of liquid and 2 piles of powder. Whip it for about 5 seconds until it transforms into a light cream-gel serum. Scoop out all the good stuff and apply to your face and neck.
Your Bowl can be quickly wiped with a tissue between uses or it can be rinsed and left to air dry.
Probiotics support the skin's microbiome, rebuilding and strengthening the barrier. Also, probiotics calm rough skin, are great at preventing collagen breakdown, and speed up skin healing.
Enzymes dissolve the "glue" that holds cells together, acting as a gentle exfoliant. They shed dead cell buildup, smooth skin texture, brighten dark spots, even tone, and improve product absorption.
Probiotics are made by fermenting living microorganisms which are then microencapsulated to extend their shelf-life and viability. The fermentation process allows the probiotics to break down into simpler molecules that can be absorbed into the skin.
Enzymes are extracted from fruits like papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin through fermentation. After the fermentation process, enzymes are added to skincare products if they pass quality tests.
If your skin is easily-reactive, start with once-daily applications and gradually work up to twice daily to help your skin adjust to the product.
You can use the serum twice daily. If your skin is sensitive, start with one time a day and work up to twice a day.
Apply your probiotic enzyme serum AM and PM after cleansing and toning and before a moisturizer.
Salicylic acid sinks deep into congested pores which unclogs them and exfoliates the skin's surface, speeding up breakout healing and balancing sebum.
Willow bark is a soothing, anti-inflammatory astringent, while salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid with exfoliant properties.
Salicylic acid is isolated from willow bark trees but can also be lab-made by biosynthesis of the amino acid phenylalanine or phenol.
Some may experience dryness and irritations when switching to salicylic acid. To avoid this from happening, start using salicylic acid three times a week and gradually work up to daily use allowing your skin to build tolerance.
Skip AHAs like glycolic acid when using salicylic acid.
Apply salicylic acid once daily to prevent your skin from drying out.
You can apply salicylic acid at night or in the morning, so long as you use an SPF since salicylic acid can make the skin photosensitive during the day.
A Superior Serum is the result of activating a pure Active Powder with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator. Once the Active Powder is mixed with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator, it transforms into a serum with a light gel cream texture and clinically-proven results.
Made fresh in an instant so that your skin can benefit from active ingredients at peak potency.
Powder is the most stable, least degradable format available for potent, delicate actives. Our Pure, potent Active Powders are innovatively designed to quickly and fully activate in under 8 seconds when mixed with our Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator—transforming seamlessly into a silky, light gel cream texture.
Yes, our line of Superior Serums was designed to mix and match so you can use different Active Powders (in their Activator Globes + Dispensers) with the same Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator and Activator Base.
Yes, they can, and product selection is based on the skin concern you most want to improve and benefits you want to see and feel.
All Exponent products are allergy tested for safety. However, alway patch test prior to use to make sure your skin tolerates any new topical skincare product.
The Active Powders each come with 45 doses, and the Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator comes with 90 doses.
The shelf life or full expiration date is currently tested at 2 years. But our formulas from a ‘best if used by date’ never go bad– as in, they deliver the same potency every single dose.
All formulas are considered safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding except the Enzyme/Probiotic Powder as it has willow bark that is standardized for salicylic acid. However, as with any skincare product, we advise those who are pregnant or lactating to consult their physician prior to use.
