Key active ingredients

Niacinamide reduces redness and helps fade dark spots left by prior breakouts while helping skin stay hydrated.

Zinc reduces redness and controls bacteria. Also helps neutralize UV rays that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles.

Salicylic acid gently exfoliates inside pores to alleviate congestion.

Licorice root extract has a gentle brightening and soothing action to reduce redness and dark spots.

MSM (a form of sulphur) soothes sensitive skin.

Hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin, boosting hydration while minimizing fine lines and other signs of aging.

Panthenol softens and soothes irritation and inflammation for smooth, calm skin.

Saccharide isomerate binds moisture to the skin’s surface for up to 72 hours for long lasting hydration.

Game changer

I found Activist Skin Care when I was searching for plastic free items to take on a trip to Kenya. I ordered the trial size kit and fell in love. I noticed a difference in my skin within a couple of days. I have always struggled with my skin and breakouts and dark spots. Since using Activists all of those things have drastically improved. I will never use anything else.

Best Natural Skincare Out There!

I've been looking all over for healthy skincare without all the crap preservatives, dyes, parabens, etc. After trying a few brands, this is the only one that actually works. It cleans without drying, it moisturizes without leaving me feeling greasy. I love every product that Activist has.

I’m honestly shocked at how much I love oils

I have mature sensitive skin and have been using the full Activist skincare line for about a month now, and love it. I thought I would have issues using oils, but no! No sensitivities! Just velvety smooth skin! 51 years old and wearing no make up. Woohoo

Anjana P. (Reno, NV, US)

I won the sample kit previously in a giveaway and loved it and have since bought the sea to skin cleansing gel and calming force serum! They’re amazing and I’ve seen improvements in my skin already.

Love Love Love

It's as simple as that! I'm always searching for effective and clean skin remedies and this is IT.

Micha L. (Chicago, IL, US)
Better than competitors

I have used a similar product from other companies and often found that my skin would react really poorly. I apply this product twice daily and it seems like I went through a “purge” without suffering from long term reactions.
