3: A Professentional Strength Microdermabrasion Treatment (Physical Exfoliant)
Save yourself a pricy trip to the spa or dermatologist with the Award-Winning and Top-Selling Non-Negotiables® DermAppeal® Microdermabrasion Treatment. This aluminum oxide-free treatment helps resurface the skin with naturally occurring Dead Sea Minerals to gently and effectively refine and exfoliate your skin. Meanwhile, 5 different stabilized forms of anti-oxidant Vitamin C Crystals (including Kakadu Plum Extract) promote glowing skin from within while delivering a professional-grade microdermabrasion treatment.
This customer-favorite will serve as your ultimate physical exfoliant to manually remove dead skin cells and daily grime from your skin's surface. This essential step allows your skincare products, or any topical treatment for that matter, to best absorb into your skin. Without regular physical exfoliation, your skincare products will simply set on top of your dead skin cells, which can cause breakouts and ultimately wasted dollars.
4: A Professional Strength Resurfacing Treatment with Multiple Balancing Acids (Chemical Exfoliant)
Unlike physical exfoliants that most people are used to, chemical exfoliants do not contain granules to physically remove dead skin cells. Instead, chemical exfoliators are generally powered by two different types of acids known as Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids. Chemical exfoliants are strong enough to breakdown built-up sebum, products, and dead skin cells with the ability to penetrate deep into the skin, beyond the epidermis. When used at high concentrations, AHAs + BHAs are popular chemical peel treatments among Aestheticians and Dermatologists to rapidly help treat hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, texture concerns, and serious acne challenges.
Here at SKINN, we realize not everyone has the disposable income to seek in-office treatments. That's why we developed a pro-strength chemical peel that you can do from the comfort of your own home for a fraction of the price. Our Non-Negotiables® Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads include not only the recommended levels of 10% Glycolic Acid and 2% Salicylic Acid, but also Phytic, Lactic, and Polyglutamic Acids. In addition to 5 optimally combined AHAs + BHAs, we've also added ultra-soothing Oat Bran and Oat Kernel Extracts to alleviate irritation and oftentimes, the downtime you'd face from an in-office treatment. Count on this professional-grade formulation to reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and pores while supporting natural cell renewal to reveal brighter, firmer, clearer, and healthier-looking skin that glows.
Please keep in mind all chemical exfoliants, including the Non-Negotiables® Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads, are best used at night as they can cause your skin to be photosensitive. We always recommend wearing a daily SPF of 30 to protect your freshly exfoliated skin from UVA/UVB rays.
5: A PH Balancing Electrolyte Loaded Essence
You're probably asking yourself, "what's an essence, and do I really need one?" Let us help explain why this particlular option is one you do not want to miss due to its electrolyte loaded, young coconut water hydration. You've most likely hear about electrolytes, and why they're so important when it comes to hydration, muscle contractioin regulation and balancing your ph levels when ingested, but what about when they're included in your skincare? less of what you apply post-cleansing, always properly prep your skin prior to applying any of your favorite skincare products. Unlike toners that are often formulated with alcohol or Witch Hazel, which can strip or dry out the skin, a skin softening essence, like the Non-Negotiables® Enriched Softening Essence + helps flood skin with essential moisture while properly balancing your skin's natural PH. This helps to best prep the skin to receive future products along with their promised results. What else makes our Enriched Softening Essence + ideal for creating balance? It's formulated with Young Coconut Water, which is packed full of and an exotic blend of 26 different fruit and plant extracts that instantly hydrate the skin. Meanwhile, Tamarind Seed Extract helps improve the skin’s elasticity and texture. This miracle in a bottle also contains Aquatide, a biomimetic peptide that protects the skin’s barrier and helps heal acne. Can your drug store toner do all those things?
6: A CDC Compliant Sanitizing Treatment – Made in the USA
In today's challenging environment, there's never been a better time to keep a CDC Compliant* sanitizing treatment with you at all times. And given all of the recent news sharing the growing list of toxic and unsafe sanitizers on the market today, finding one that's made in the USA will certainly minimize your risks. That's why we decided to alleviate confusion and fear by creating our very own sanitizer, the Non-Negotiables® Fast Acting Sanitizing Treatment. Our formula exceeds the CDC recommended 60% Ethyl Alcohol* with its 62% concentration of Corn-derived Ethyl Alcohol. And if that doesn't put you at ease, rest assured our formulation is not only backed with an NDC number that you can easily look up on the FDA website, but it's also 100% Made in the USA. All of our ingredients are grown and fully processed in the USA. You'll notice we've also taken the extra steps of putting our 62% Corn-Derived Ethyl Alcohol, that's proudly sourced from Iowa, through a 4X Distillation + Carbon Filtered Process. And just like all SKINN formulations, our sanitizer is made and formulated by our onsite OTC Registered Laboratory.
So why the heftier price? Let us explain, this truly essential product is not your average sanitizer. Like you, we experienced the terrible side effects caused by other sanitizers on the market; dry, itchy, and irritated, cracked hands. So we wanted to give you something better, a sanitizer that would not only kill germs on contact but deliver other skincare benefits. Our Non-Negotiables® Fast Acting Sanitizing Treatment is formulated with a lower molecular weight of Hyaluronic Acid to provide deep penetrating moisture that binds to the skin because safe hands shouldn’t mean dry cracked hands. But we didn't stop there, we also added Vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera Extract to help soothe, hydrate, moisturize and protect your skin from environmental stressors. So please, don't stick this essential in the same category as those other drugstore brands, because it's simply not just a sanitizer.
We hope these straightforward products help simplify your skin routine!
