How to use

How To Use

Dispense one or two pumps into your hands. Smooth over dampened face with circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse clean with warm water and follow with your favorite Acta Beauty serum.

Jillian's Skin Tip:

Incorporate this cleanser into your routine in a way that makes your skin feel best. Gentle enough to use daily, but effective enough to use less if so desired, I recommend starting with 2x a week and seeing how your skin adjusts.

If you struggle with hormonal acne, you can use the cleanser more frequently the week before your period to help ward off breakouts.


Active Ingredients

  • Sugar Maple Extract - Featuring natural AHAs from a sweet, natural source - the Sugar Maple - smaller molecules make for easy absorption and delivery, making it a highly effective exfoliating agent.

  • Sugarcane Extract - This natural source of glycolic acid is another AHA that works to build collagen and slough off dead skin cells.

  • Willow Bark Extract - Rich in salicin BHA, famed for its exfoliating, purifying and acne fighting properties. Derived from Willow Bark, this is a gentler alternative to the harsher salicylic acid that is more commonly found in exfoliating products.

  • Bilberry Fruit/Leaf Extract - Obtained from a dark berry very similar to blueberries, the Bilberry fruit and leaves are extremely rich anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants. It helps to defend against the onslaught of daily environmental burdens including pollution and UV rays.

How will this benefit my skin?

In addition to AHAs, this cleanser is formulated with Willow Bark, a botanical extract that provides additional exfoliation, cleanses the pores, and contains anti-inflammatory properties that calm redness and irritation. Willow Bark contains salycin, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which is a 100% plant based, gentler alternative to salicylic acid - a known acne fighter.

When AHAs and BHA combine, they are unstoppable in improving skin tone and texture!

Can I layer this with other products?

After cleansing your skin, layer with the Acta Beauty serum and moisturizer of your choice.

Will this work for sensitive skin?

Skin Refining Cleanser With AHA and BHA is designed for sensitive skin. With a skin-friendly pH and the addition of soothing Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), even sensitive skin can benefit from this gently exfoliating cleanser.

Do I use this day, night, or both?

We recommend using Skin Refining Cleanser With AHA and BHA up to once a day.

So great!

I recently started using this cleanser and saw a noticeable improvement in my skin's texture and brightness in less than a week! I use the cleanser in conjunction with a few other Acta products and I'm hooked! This cleanser has a very pleasant smell as an extra bonus.

Courtney, it's great to hear you love the cleanser! The improvements you talk about are wonderful, and totally what we expect from this product. Thank you for leaving a review and letting others know!
