Not only does it prevent skin from becoming dry, it can also provide skin with comprehensive moisturising results, thus, making it an ideal long-term skin care product.

PuriHerbs – exclusive anti-acne formula made up of 3 types of herbs, namely eucalyptus leaves, licorice and African yellow wood.
Licorice – licorice has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine. Modern research has discovered that licorice extracts has valuable anti-inflammation and anti-allergy effects which can relieve the inflamed symptom of acne and aid wound healing to soothe sensitive skin.
Eucalyptus leaves – originated from Australia, eucalyptus leaves are used as a natural herb through the generations. The anti-bacterial function of eucalyptus extracts can counter the growth of bacterial which causes pimples. When such microbes breed extensively in pores, they would break down the walls and form pimples. Eucalyptus extracts inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacterial and prevent pimples from developing.
African yellow wood – 5-alpha reductase is an enzyme present in the sebaceous glands of the human body which causes excess sebum secretion. African yellow wood extracts can inhibit over-active 5-alpha reductase and regulate sebaceous glands to reduce sebum secretion. Charcoal extracts also cleanses pores and tightens them; over-secretion of sebum enlarges pores.
Rose hip oil – not only does rose hip oil have a soothing fragrance, it can also boost cellular regeneration. These made it a sacred beauty product in Latin America. Acne often leaves scars, pock marks and enlarged pores. The nutrients and antioxidants present in rose hip oil can help damaged skin heal, lighten scars and marks, as well as enhancing the elasticity of pores.
Hyaluronic acid – hyaluronic acid is a transparent, sticky gel-like substance which has polymer polysaccharides which can lock in large amount of moisture to hydrate skin tissue. You might ask, "What does oily skin need to be moisturized? Isn't it better for it to be as dry as possible?" The answer to the latter is a no because when skin is dehydrated, it will produce more sebum to shield itself. This would, in turn, trigger the growth of more pimples. In order to prevent this from recurring, hyaluronic acid is added to the product to help skin achieve healthy sebum-moisture balance.
