After the age of 20, oily skin with a tendency for acne still impacts 1 in 5 adults. Today, we know that acne is not linked to an overproliferation of the C. acnes bacteria (previously known as P. acnes) but rather to a loss of diversity and an imbalance between healthy and acne-prone strains of this bacterium.
PIXALIA® acts on microbiota balance, and limits the skin impurities & imperfections to recover a perfect skin grain.

PIXALIA® is aqueous active ingredient, extracted from the leaves of Cleome Gynandra, sourced in Burkina Faso and Thailand, two of Expanscience’s well-known supply chains.

Traditionally used in culinary or medicinal preparations, Cleome Gynandra is a plant known for its high level of polyphenols and particularly flavonoids, which are molecules with significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

This active ingredient is obtained through a propanediol/water extraction, a COSMOS approved process which allows us to concentrate the polyphenols contained in the leaves of Cleome Gynandra.

PIXALIA®rebalances the skin microbiome by targeting the pathogenic acne-prone strains without impacting the healthy ones, for gentler anti-acne care that respects the skin's balance. It also reduces skin inflammation and rebalances the quality and quantity of sebum while respecting normal to dry skin.
