Sacred Skin | Acne Serum & Moisturizer

Our Acne serum & moisturizer is an apothecary prepared medicinal oil made of tree resins, bark and flowers to specifically help fight, soothe and heal acne.  

White willow bark - contains natures original acne fighting BHA, salicin. The use of white willow bark dates back to Hippocrates (400 BC) and still today is a prized remedy for inflammatory skin conditions and acne due to its ability to clear out dead skin and bacteria inside the pores which lead to acne. 

Myrrh Resin - highly medicinal tree resin historically used to treat topical skin conditions from infections, fungus to acne. Myrrh's antiseptic activity specifically targets acne causing bacteria buildup in the pores that lead to puss filled pimples. 

Poplar Buds - An American folk herbal remedy, poplar buds are rich in delightful aromatic healing resins used topically to heal the inflammatory and angry parts of acne due to their abundant flavonoid activity. 

Pinion Resin - helps to clear the skins pores of clogged debris like bacteria, dead cells and excess oil all which lead to acne and inflammation. 

Copal Negro Extract - An ancient and rare tree resin (not the same as the commercially available copal resin used for incense) used in medicinal skin preparations to soothe and heal many different skin aliments but works especially well in assisting the healing of older acne lesions that have either popped or dried up but still present themselves selfs on the skin. 

Calendula - a tried and true ever so popular topical healing remedy for the skin. Calendula is soothing, calming while still being able to combat acne, rashes and inflammation. 

Other ingredients: naturally refined eco-cert certified jojoba oil, pastured emu oil, pastured grain-free soy-free leaf lard from a regenerative farm USA.

*The oils chosen for this product are lower in saturated fats, which can aggravate acne prone skin due to their buttery richness; but still, in true Kossma fashion, does not contain any inflammatory high PUFA seed oils just light and soothing animal fats of leaf lard and emu oil which preforms remarkably well on acne skin types.

Great for spot treatment!

I love using this as a spot treatment, especially after I accidentally pop something I shouldn't have (oops). I find that a little bit goes a long way, so I know it'll last for a long time. A great addition to my growing line of Kossma products!

A must have

Love love this serum! I use it as a spot treatment or overall application if needed and it stops breakouts in its tracks. It isn't drying like most acne serums, love pairing this with the sugar squalene serum

Versatile Product & Calming to skin

Okay I must admit I don't have acne prone skin. I have occasional hormonal break outs and wanted to have a trusted product on hand to incorporate with my other Kossma products since all have been wonderful. I mainly purchased this due to Stephanie stating it could also be used on my scalp for hair growth. I love the fact that Kossma products are versatile and you can combine them with other ones creating different combos that fit your needs. It does feel good on the skin and absorbs quickly. Nice product to keep on hand. Thank you!!!

So far I’m impressed!

I have very sensitive skin. I’m dealing with hormonal acne after getting off of birth control and spironolactone. Other non-comedogenic acne serums I’ve used from other brands (and from a holistic esthetician) seem to upset my face, but this one seems to be a winner so far! The quality is unmatched for the price. I can’t wait to try the chamomile cleanser. I use this after cleansing my face and then I put a tallow balm over top. I’ve tried it as a spot treatment and then an all over situation to see if it would help with my scarring. I did this only after patch testing first, just in case. It does seem to be moisturizing, especially in the Midwest winter, but I don’t think I can rely specifically on the serum to get the job done. I hope this review helps someone. Thank you for this wonderful product!!!!

LOVE IT!

I have had acne since I was a teenager. It has greatly improved once I cleaned up my diet and my skincare products. But I still had breakouts come back every month. I've only used the sacred serum for a week and already see SOOO MUCH improvement! My skin feels so hydrated, looks amazing and has helped my acne! I've tried a lot of natural skin care products over the years and found many of them were harsh. But Kossma became my ultimate favourite! I love that they use whole herbs in their products and it really makes a difference in how nourishing and healing it is on the skin. So happy I found this! :)
