Calming Force Clear Skin Serum
What it is: An effective-yet-gentle hydrating serum for stressed skin dealing with blemishes, clogged pores, dark spots, and redness. 5.5 pH. Lightweight and fast-absorbing.
Why We Love: Packed with active ingredients so we get to see the results quickly. Many acne-targetted products can be harsh on the skin, but Calming Force Clear Skin Serum clears skin without causing any irritation for many of us who have sensitive skin. Just like every product that Activist Skincare carries when we are ready for a full-size, we have an option to buy the product in a refill pouch packaging. Why pouches? They create 115% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to recycling a jar and buying a new one.

Activist Skincare believes self-care is an important fuel for changemakers who want to make positive impacts for a better world. This value is deeply personal to Allison, the founder of Activist Skincare. She has long been an animal lover and an environmentalist whose work can be emotionally and physically challenging and certainly requires a recharge from time to time. Activist Skincare's products deliver that much-needed self-care using 100% vegan ingredients sourced from sustainability-minded suppliers in glass packaging and low-waste refills. They also donate 5% of their revenue to environmental organizations including Communities for a Better Environment, Cultural Survival, Earthjustice, Environmental Defense Fund, Rainforest Trust, and more.
