What products / ingredients you should use vs. what you should avoid?

UNDERSTAND fragranced products.

Certain fragrances in skincare products are among the most common cause of sensitizing and other negative skin reactions for all skin types, especially for a very sensitive skin. It’s mind-boggling that this isn’t common knowledge.

If people who don’t suffer from blemishes are affected negatively by these particular fragrances then you can imagine the results on acne-prone skin!

We care about your skin’s health at System Akvile and take the science behind our products seriously. As a result, we avoid fragrances as much as possible (where the formula allows) and will never use those that are on the official allergenic fragrance list.

USE acidic products.

The pH level of our skin consists of the balance of acid and alkaline, ranging from 1 to 14. Anything lower than 7 is considered acidic, while a number higher than 7 indicates alkaline. The body functions the best when these levels are neutral, however, on the whole skin is slightly more acidic at 4 to 6.5. - this is known as the ‘acid mantle’. One of the benefits of this environment is to help skin cells grow and function. Skin cell growth is optimal for acne-prone skin which needs as much regeneration as it can get.

AVOID large amounts of alcohol.

Many acne-prone skin products are alcohol-based. A common misconception is that alcohol based products can control oily acne-prone skin. This is not really the case - damage from alcohol can actually lead to an increase in enlarged pores, which can counteract the initial oil-stripping and in fact create more oil on your skin. For this reason System Akvile doesn’t use alcohol as an active ingredient in our products. 

What is in System Akvile skincare products? 

We care deeply about only using the best possible skincare ingredients. For us, scientific research is the most important thing. Unlike other skincare brands, our products are not formulated to follow gimmicks or trends, they're backed by real science! We want you to know exactly what each ingredient does and why we use it in our products.
