Blackheads are formed as a result of the surplus sebum produced at the base of the hair. The Melanin found in the sebum oxidises when it comes in contact with the air thus giving the blackheads a dark appearance. Blackheads are a mild form of acne(unless accompanied by severe acne lesions) and are referred to as Open Comedones.
Current treatments for Blackheads available in the market have a strong overlap with other acne treatments given blackheads are a kind of non-inflammatory acne. Unfortunately, the treatments also share skin drying active ingredients like Azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid which often aggravate the condition.
We believe Blackheads should be treated by nourishing and gently exfoliating the skin through the use of natural ingredients found in Fuller's Earth/Multani Mitti(Magnesium Chloride), Saffron(Antiseptic Oxide Content), Sugar(Glycolic Acid, Natural Exfoliator ),Castor Oil(Ricinoleic Acid), Aloe-Vera(Sorbitol, Sodium Palmate), Jojoba Oil(Vitamin A, E), Turmeric(Antiseptic). These natural ingredients help in rebalancing the microbiome of the skin thus ensuring that blackhead are treated naturally without causing any long term damage to the skin.
