Ingredients that control Chronic Redness

This article will discuss the ingredients that pHformula’s skin resurfacing system uses to minimise visible signs of Chronic Redness.


What is Chronic Redness?

The most common cause of chronic redness is rosacea, which is an inflammatory condition that causes redness in the skin at varying levels and severity. Even though it is extremely common, the cause remains unknown. It is often attributed to certain abnormalities in blood vessels in which they enlarge, giving your face a flushed appearance.

There are four subtypes of rosacea, each subtype has its own set of symptoms. Rosacea’s trademark symptom is small, red, pus-filled bumps on the skin that are present during flare-ups. Typically, rosacea affects only skin on your nose, cheeks, and forehead. Flare-ups often occur in cycles. This means that you will experience symptoms for weeks or months at a time, the symptoms will go away, and then return.

How do you treat Chronic Redness with pHformula? The answer is in the ingredients.



Retinol is a powerful acid that promotes the improvement of chronic redness associated with rosacea and sensitive skin by addressing the chronic deficiency of vitamin A in the skin, which is a major contributor to the skin concern.

• The C.R. recovery is specifically formulated to work in synergism with the pHformula skin resurfacing treatments. A unique combination of active ingredients working synergistically to assist in speeding-up skin recovery, maintaining the overall health of the skin, and helping to prevent future skin damage.

• The A.C.T.I.V.E. formula is specially formulated as a preparation treatment product to be used before or during the pHformula skin resurfacing treatments to assist in normalizing all skin disorders and maintaining overall results.



Glycosaminoglycans are a fundamental component of skin tissue, essentially a group of complex proteins. Chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid are part of this ingredient group, all of which function as skin-replenishing and restoring ingredients.

• Point Multi Protect is a peptide infused anti-ageing moisturizer with sun protection factor 15 which is formulated for delicate skin or skin affected by chronic redness. It is a unique moisturizing cream that repairs, hydrates and protects the skin and leaves the skin feeling calm and soothed.


Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid has powerful antimicrobial properties which assist to eradicate bacteria associated with rosacea prone skin. It is a very gentle acid and particularly effective for skin types which cannot tolerate aggressive topical treatments.

• C.R.1 complex is an active and effective complete restoration complex for chronic redness and rosacea prone skin, specifically formulated with anti-microbial activity to help reduce redness and prevent relapses. It contains the all-powerful and important retinol which helps to address vitamin A deficiencies in the skin, as well as lactic acid which helps break down the bonds between cells to allow easier exfoliation of dead surface cells, while also providing hydration.

• C.R Recovery is specifically formulated to work in synergism with the pHformula C.R.1 Complex skin resurfacing treatment. This unique combination of active ingredients work synergistically to assist in speeding-up skin recovery, maintaining overall skin health.



Niacinamide increases the production of fatty acids and ceramides in the skin, which forms a protective barrier. It maintains skin moisture, protects the skin from irritants, improves flushing and blushing due to rosacea. Niacinamide can also mitigate the damage that environmental agressions can cause.

• VITA B vibrance boost mask is a rich and creamy mask that delivers gentle, soothing hydration to reduce redness and soothe sensitive skin. It is packed with natural extracts and Niacinamide to strengthen the skin barrier and protect the skin from external stress.

• VITA B3 cream is essential to prevent and reverse visible signs of redness, pigment changes and skin ageing. The highly concentrated vitamin B3 cream offers 24-hour moisturizing properties for immediate and intense hydration.
