S5 Rainforest Bioactive Blend
Amazonian Bioactives are one of S5’s hero ingredients, are extracted from rainforest plants that are capable of sustaining life throughout torrential rain, sweltering heat and oppressive humidity. They protect themselves from excessive growth of bacteria, and work with the skin in the same way to provide a climate control system, balancing oil production, hydration and skin nutrition. Produced from three Amazonian bioactives, these extracts have a synergistic effect on blemish prone skin without causing irritation.
