#TheBrand | iS Clinical Skincare Reviews – harpersbazaar.com

By daniellenierenberg

In our regular feature #TheBrand, Bazaars beauty team look into an exciting and efficacious brand taking the beauty industry by storm. This time, its an under-the-radar skincare line gaining traction for its transformative effects.

The latest brand making beauty editors fawn is surprisingly buzz-free. Theres no celebrity founder, attention-seeking packaging, or heavily filtered Instagram account. The brands website is unassuming, and stockists are scarce. So, why is everyone clamouring for iS Clinical, and is it worth the search? Here, we reveal the story behind beautys quietest game-changer.

Founded in 2002 by biochemist Bryan Johns and Alec Call and still privately owned iS Clinical is part of the Innovative Skincare umbrella, which creates products focused on pure, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. The transformative effects of these meticulously created products made the brands professional treatments an awards-circuit mainstay, yet the buzz didnt quite reverberate across the pond.

Cue a few choice (not paid-for) endorsements from some enviably glossy influencers think Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, January Jones and celebrity facialist Shani Darden and iS Clinical has become the under-the-radar skincare line of the moment.

iS Clinical doesnt look like the type of brand to be touting buzzwords such as botanical and natural. In fact, it looks veritably like something youd only expect to find lining the white walls of a dermatologists office.

But the formulas in these gimmick-free blue bottles are actually a force of nature, combining highly active, plant-derived extracts (and omitting fragrance and parabens), to directly tackle specific skin concerns.

The brands skincare ethos comprises four steps: cleanse, treat, hydrate and protect, and the range offers products in each category for a variety of specific skin types. Every one is conceptualised and produced in-house, with no third-party involvement, meaning you wont' find a 'dupe' or replica anywhere else.

High-grade ingredients think plant-derived acids, vitamins A to E, stem cells and ceramides are combined to deliver the most notable results in the least amount of time. Users of the brands star serum (more on that later) have reported visible improvements in a matter of days.

The brands scientific approach is founded on the biological principle of xenohormesis: the concept that stressed plants produce bioactive compounds, which pass on stress-resistance and survival benefits to the people who consume (or apply) them.

While the brand offers a specific range for each skin type, theres one hero product that has made more waves than most. Praised in particular by those with acne and rough skin texture, the Active Serum is widely hailed as the product to solve the most persistent of breakouts, while fading scars and hyperpigmentation.

According to Dr. Charlene DeHaven M.D, clinical director of iS Clinical, the cult following is due to the unique combination of four naturally occurring acids that do more than just treat blemishes.

Sugar cane (a source of glycolic acid) and bilberry fruit extract (a source of lactic acid) both encourage gentle exfoliation of the outer layers of the epidermis, without dehydrating the skin. Willow bark extract (containing salicylic acid) deep-cleanse the pores, while kojic-acid rich mushroom extract has powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, she explains. The addition of arbutin makes this serum a powerful tool in fading pigmentation, too combined with the kojic acid, it inhibits melanin-producing enzymes, therefore fading post-inflammatory pigmentation.
