The solution for fine pores and an even skin appearance
We have made ours the PORIFY SOLUTION even better: it now contains 2% salicylic acid in a specially dissolved form, allowing it to develop its full effect at a skin-friendly pH value. Salicylic acid clears the pores, reduces impurities and gently dissolves excess horny cells. A complex of encapsulated mastic resin and willowherb reduces sebum production. Niacinamide helps to balance the skin tone. Hyaluron and cucumber extract provide moisture.
With its potent mixture of active ingredients, it alleviates several causes of unstable skin:
PORIFY BHA SOLUTION is mild to the skin, easy to apply and can be easily integrated into any skin care routine.
Shake the bottle briefly before each use to ensure perfect mixing of the solution. A slight foaming is completely normal.
Apply PORIFY BHA SOLUTION sparingly in the morning and/or evening with a cotton wool pad on the cleansed face or T-zone.
Allow the product to soak in briefly before the subsequent care steps.
The product has a slightly exfoliating effect. Use an appropriate UV protection during the day.
Do not apply the product to injured skin and avoid eyelids. In case of eye contact, rinse with lukewarm water.

"We do not revise an existing formula until we are sure that it will make it better. This is the case with PORIFY SOLUTION. The suffix 'BHA' gives it away: We have added salicylic acid, the fruit acid gold standard for refined, clarified pores. The special feature: The special, pre-dissolved dosage allowed us to formulate PORIFY BHA Solution pH skin-friendly without the salicylic acid losing its effect. The proven mastic extract has remained, as have niacinamide and cucumber extract. A new addition is willowherb extract, which has great sebum-regulating properties. All in all, our best toner for impure, restless and tendentially oily skin".
- Thorsten Abeln, founder of HighDroxy -
As a beta fruit acid, salicylic acid not only has a slightly exfoliating, i.e. scaling effect. It works especially in the blocked pore and clears it from the inside. As it is oil-soluble, it dissolves sebum accumulations in the pore, at the same time it alleviates inflammatory processes and calms the skin as a whole.
Originally extracted from willow bark, salicylic acid has long been produced synthetically in a highly pure form. The pre-dissolved form used in PORIFY BHA SOLUTION allows an oil-free formulation that develops its full potential even in the skin-friendly pH range of 4.8 to 5.2.
The mastic resin of the Greek pistachio tree has been appreciated since ancient times for its clarifying and therapeutic properties. It was already used in face creams to improve the appearance of the skin. The form used in PORIFY BHA SOLUTION encapsulates the mastic in tiny liposomes. This allows it to penetrate deep into the pore and act directly on the sebum gland.
The sebum-regulating effect of the mastic resin is supplemented by an extract from willowherb: It reduces sebum production by inhibiting the key enzyme 5-α reductase. It also downregulates the Cutibacterium Acnes, which is involved in the development of acne.
The clarifying properties of PORIFY BHA SOLUTION are perfectly complemented by caring and soothing active ingredients:
Dry skin can also suffer from impurities - PORIFY BHA SOLUTION is less recommended for use over large areas, as sebum production is effectively reduced. Our tip: Simply apply PORIFY BHA SOLUTION to the impurities with a cotton swab!
Normally, PORIFY BHA SOLUTION is applied like a facial toner with a cotton pad. An alternative is to apply it with your bare hands: Try to wet only your T-zone and avoid strong rubbing. It is better to press your palms gently against your face.
Mild retinol care. Improves the appearance of wrinkles, pores and acne.
