Containing soothing raw honey, dead sea salt, aloe vera gel and white willow bark extract which contain the naturally occurring acne treating powerhouses salicylic acid and salicin.
Our effective formula can turn your acne nightmare into a dream (sorry!).
We don’t think there are acne products quite like ours anywhere else on the planet. Yet we are only keeping it simple by using natural ingredients that have been successfully used for centuries but have been ‘forgotten’. Intentional?
We see the world through a different set of eyes and are so fed up with the narratives that are being pushed on us constantly that sometimes we could scream! A pillow can come in handy sometimes 🙂
Don’t get too excited! We don’t hand out T Shirts or badges or all get matching tattoos (although a few of us do have some particularly interesting ones!).
By ‘care to join the club?’ it is just us trying to be clever in our marketing and basically us saying ‘Let us heal you like all of the other people we have healed’. Because healing is the name of our game.
Due to the change of hormones during your teenage years that cause your sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum (oil). It makes teenagers’ facial skin a perfect living and breeding ground for demodex mites.
It is thought that 90% of teenage acne is caused by these demodex mites and the resulting bacterial infections they cause when they decompose inside your skin, and that 10% is caused by bacteria that has nothing to do with these mites.
Although the link between demodex mites and acne vulgaris has been proven in some clinical practices, it is still not fully conclusive and further research is required.
Excess oil (sebum) production by your sebaceous glands due to hormonal changes during the teenage years block and clogs pores.
Acne develops when this sebum — an oily substance that lubricates your hair and skin — and dead skin cells plug pores. This then provides an ideal breeding ground for bacterial infection that results in inflammation and acne.
Think of your blocked skin pores being like blocked drains. Our scrub can regulate and unblock those drains and get everything flowing properly so your skin behaves naturally- leading to clearer, acne-free skin.
Unlike acne treatments containing artificial ingredients such as synthetic salicylic acid that are harsh on your skin our natural scrub and spot remover can gently remove old, dead skin, unblock pores, kill bacterial infections and give your skin that badly needed detox it needs!
Leaving you with acne-free clearer skin.
Working in this gentle, more natural way, it will encourage healthier and better looking skin. Because deep down we all know that all good things come to those who wait. But don’t worry. You will notice a difference after just one session.
With added lemon oil, dead sea salt and cupuacu particles, your skin will feel clean, fresh and revitalised as our scrub goes to work removing excess sebum and unblocking pores. Raw honey and aloe vera will hydrate your skin and soothe it while our scrub gets down to some serious graft!
Our soothing, natural scrub can relieve the symptoms of acne effectively, even if they have caused you distress for years.
Oily skin, enlarged pores, infections, acne, inflammation and redness can become a distant memory. Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, you can embrace beautiful new skin and a whole new chapter in your life.
Our products have already transformed so many of you that we ran out of fingers and toes in the office to count them on a long time ago! And although this product is gentle and works in harmony with your skin, it contains extreme power, and the results appear magical.
These magical results occur because we use natural botanicals that have been created by Mother Nature to transform and heal.
When her wisdom is combined with the wisdom of the ancients and our extensive knowledge of the science behind how these botanicals work and how your skin responds to them, magic can and does occur.
Many of the ingredients we use are clinically proven to be effective and studies are available online (great bedtime reading!).
Aloe vera contains salicylic acid which removes dead skin cells and dissolves them, unblocking pores.
Salicylic acid works by causing the epidermal cells to shed properly. Actually, its main function is to dissolve this cement that holds those cells adhered together in the clogged pores.
Simply put, salicylic acid aids in the process of exfoliation by eliminating surface skin cells and opening up pores.
Aloe vera soothes skin and reduces inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe Vera is also a humectant and mild astringent and can therefore attract water and help pull the moisture deep inside the lower layers of your skin.
Because it is a mild astringent, aloe vera can absorb excess oil and impurities from your skin and tighten pores.
In vitro tests have shown Willow Bark Extract to have activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnes, the two strains of bacteria implicated in the formation of acne.
Willow bark extract is a source of salicin which has been shown to contribute effects similar to those seen from synthetic salicylic acid but in a gentle, non irritating manner.
In the May 2006 issue of the “International Journal of Dermatology.” Israeli researchers placed soil samples containing Dead Sea salt in petri dishes, along with various bacteria populations.
They found that the mud inhibited the growth of candida and propionibacterium, even after being sterilised with gamma radiation. They concluded that the chemical make-up of the salts provided microbial protection.
Honey can absorb excess sebum and impurities and give your skin the ultimate ‘sweet detox’!
Honey’s natural humectant properties also make it an effective moisturiser. The enzyme activity in honey enables it to penetrate deeply into the skin and bring hydration to the underlying layers.
Honey is also revered for its healing, soothing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that can help to reduce redness and breakouts.

“Like you I’m not perfect, I’m myself warts and all.
But I embrace my true nature and stand firm and stand tall.
I glide with pure grace and I march on a mission.
For I was sent here to tell you that you’re all in transition.
It may not feel easy, feels like life is a bitch.
But it’ll be made so much easier if you embrace your inner witch.”
Budding witches would do well to get on Instagram in particular and connect with their fellow Insta Witches. “Sharing their idiosyncratic stories and lifestyles adds to our spectrum of understanding of what it can feel like to be a woman and a witch.”
