Our Promise

How It Works


Smaller-looking pores

In an expert clinical-graded trial, 81% of subjects showed a significant improvement in the look of pores after 3 days. Salicylic acid and farnesol help eliminate bacteria and blockages within pores while agarikon mushroom helps reduce shine and firms skin making pores appear smaller.

Smoother, clearer skin

86% of subjects agreed the texture of their skin looked clearer and smoother after 1 week. Adipic acid binds to skin, smoothing and filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while salicylic acid and farnesol help eliminate bacteria and blockages within pores

Balance oiliness

86% agreed their skin feels and looks less congested. Agarikon mushroom helps reduce shine without drying.

Improve the look of blackheads

Farnesol, adipic acid, agarikon mushroom, and prickly pear helps dissolve waxy buildup within the pore walls and flushes away impurities while AHA/BHAs support natural cell turnover and help reduce future blackheads.


In a consumer study, after 1 week:

86% agreed overall look of their pores improved
86% agreed the texture of their skin looks clearer and smoother skin
86% agreed this serum feels hydrating to the skin
100% agreed this serum is non-irritating and absorbs quickly into skin

Frequently asked questions

  • Yes, this serum can be used with the rest of the Alpha Beta® category. The products have been formulated to work together without causing irritation of throwing the skin off balance. We would recommend pairing with the appropriate formula of the Alpha Beta® Daily Peel as part of a rebalancing regimen. A dry or more sensitive skin may start every other day and work up to daily use. However, we always encourage a “level-headed” approach with acids. If your skin begins to feel tight or out of balance, scale back your usage.

  • Silicone is an effective skin blurring ingredient that can also act as a skin protectant. However, not all silicones are created equally. Inferior forms can lead to pore congestion and for some, even breakouts. Silicone also does not offer any treatment benefits for enlarged pores. ABPP&RS contains adipic acid which creates a smoothing effect while helping to cleanse the inner pore.
