ēcōMD Clarifying Serum acne treatment. Penetrates pores to control blemishes and regulate sebum production.

Skin Type: oily, acne prone

Featured ingredients

Black willow bark extract – a natural form of salicylic acid 

  • Exfoliates corneocytes without irritation, helping repair acne and photodamage through anti-inflammation. 
  • Dissolves sebum in sebaceous glands, removing blockages and comedones. 
  • Has smoother penetrating action than synthetic salicylic acid. 


  • Helps regulate sebum production and stabilize skin lipids by impeding lipid oxidation and photodegradation that can cause comedone formation. 
  • Reduces overpopulation of bacteria. 
  • Reduces redness and inflammation. 
  • Helps correct hyperkeratinization. 
  • Is a highly effective broad-spectrum antioxidant. 

Synergistic salicylic acid 2% (medicinal ingredient) and bakuchiol 1% combination

In a clinical study on papulopustular-type acne vulgaris (ages 16 to 30), twice-daily applications with salicylic acid and bakuchiol showed a significantly more powerful antibacterial effect than when using each ingredient independently. 

  • This combination helps unclog pores, reduce erythema, inflammation and pruritis, and prevent congestion and breakouts.
  • Helps to correct hyperkeratinization and reduction in microcomedones (after two, four and six weeks).

ActivMD Derm Spa Team favourite:
“My favourite product would have to be the Clarifying Serum. After cleansing my skin, it feels so good to apply this product and feel it sink into my pores. And my favourite part of the product is all of its incredible benefits! This is the perfect product for me to use daily to keep my skin clear and fresh, as I have a tendency to break out.” — Kyle
