Science driven beauty has been on the rise for the past year and will likely continue to become more and more prevalent in mainstream skincare. This is partially due to the growing popularity of science-first brands like ClarityRx. Are brands like these the future of skincare? We’re tackling this question today, as well as looking at how ClarityRx use research and scientific evidence to formula their products and the ingredients behind them.
ClarityRx Skin Care Products
ClarityRx is all about combining the best of both worlds. As research led compounds continue to create transformative results and consumers become more conscious of the ingredients within skincare and body care products, and interesting debate has immersed. What’s better, natural or scientific? Luckily, brands like ClarityRx Skincare believe that you don’t have to choose one over the other.
This brand is formulated to include the most well-research active ingredients, but without any of the more questionable fillers or preservatives. In fact, they have a whole laundry list of commitments they make in the formulation of all their products, which includes:
No Artificial Colorants
No Harmful Chemicals
No Synthetic Chemicals
No Bulk Ingredients
And many more!
ClarityRx offers everything from cleansers to serums, but where they really shine is their masks. Following the multi-masking trend that surged over the lasts year, all of the masks they offer can be used on different areas of the face at once to deliver a more customized masking experience.
Within the ClarityRx range, there are several masks that contain one or more types of clay. Clay is an excellent ingredient for detoxification and pulling impurities from the skin. That being said, certain types of clay can offer additional benefits including hydration and soothing properties, so you don’t have to worry about stripping your skin.
Of the clay masks available, the most popular is the Rehab Mediterranean Detoxifying Mud Mask. This particular mask contains both bentonite clay and kaolin clay. These two types of clay work together to draw out toxins from the skin and absorb excess oil, while still being gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. Because of these ingredients, as well as dead sea mud, this makes a great addition for those who struggle with breakouts and irritation.
Speaking of irritated skin, this mask is the one to keep an eye out for. The Cold Compress Soothing Cucumber Mask is designed specifically for when your skin is having a bit of a hissy fit. With calming ingredients including cucumber, chamomile and aloe, this mask is great for those who suffer from frequent inflammation, redness or rosacea. This could also potentially also be a great addition if you find that another product has caused you to break out. Additionally, this product also contains salicylic acid, so it’s great for acne-prone skin as well.
Inside The Ingredients List
ClarityRx is another one of those brands that is making the move to create skincare that is both clean and clinical. This means that while all of the ingredients are safe and free from parabens, sulfates and other harmful fillers, the ingredients that are included do have research and scientific evidence to back-up their efficacy. The result are formulas that include all the things you need, without any of the stuff you don’t.
Because of this, the products from this range predominantly feature a high concentration of active ingredients. Products like their Cleanse As Needed 10% Glycolic Acid Cleanser offer quite a strong dose of Glycolic acid in comparison to similar cleansers and toners on the market that hover around 5-7%. They also take full advantage of the combined benefits of several ingredients to boost the efficacy of the formulas as a whole. Within this same cleanser, there is also Mandelic Acid. While this AHA is considerably gentler than Glycolic Acid, due to its larger molecule size, it is still quite effective on its own. But together, this duo really shines. AHA’s and BHA’s have been shown to work better, quicker and more effectively when used together. Plus, if they are surrounded by moisturizing and soothing ingredients like glycerin, rose hip seed oil and seaweed extract, you can safely use AHA’s like these two regularly without irritation. With that said, this is only one example of how this brand is combining already effective ingredients to deliver simple yet safe skincare.
Unfortunately, there are very few reviews to go off of with this line. While the products have done extraordinarily well in the press, and have had mentioned in media sources like Shape, Allure, InStyle, Essense and Curve, this product hasn’t become a review winner just yet.
This is still a young brand, with very impressive ingredients, so we may see a growth in their popularity over time. Have you tried this clean but clinical brand yet? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
