Transformative Pore Strips

Clean & Clear's Blackhead Eraser Scrubby Gel Strips Turn into Exfoliant

— April 17, 2019 — Fashion
Most pore strips are designed to be applied with water and harden as they dry, allowing pore-clogging oil and impurities to be pulled from the skin. For those with sensitive skin, this can be a particularly painful process, as the strips can be abrasive and sometimes even cause irritation. Clean & Clear is changing this with an innovative, pain-free treatment.

Clean & Clear's Blackhead Eraser Scrubby Gel Strip is meant to be used as usual, except for the fact that when it's time to remove the oil-free strips, they can be turned into a gentle exfoliating scrub with the addition of water. Formulated with salicylic acid, the non-comedogenic strips are effective in treating blackheads and preventing the formation of new ones in a comfortable way that doesn't strip the skin.
Trend Themes
1. Water-activated Exfoliating Strips - There is a trend towards pore strips that transform into exfoliating scrubs when water is added, providing a more comfortable and effective skincare experience.
2. Pain-free Pore Treatment - A trend in skincare is the development of pain-free pore treatments, like Clean & Clear's Blackhead Eraser Scrubby Gel Strips, that offer effective blackhead removal without causing irritation or discomfort.
3. Non-comedogenic Skincare Products - The beauty industry is seeing a rise in non-comedogenic skincare products, including pore strips, that are formulated to prevent blackheads and other skin issues without clogging pores.
Industry Implications
1. Skincare - The skincare industry can capitalize on the trend of water-activated exfoliating strips by developing innovative products that provide a comfortable and effective skincare experience.
2. Beauty - The beauty industry can seize the opportunity of pain-free pore treatments by introducing products that efficiently remove blackheads without causing irritation, attracting customers who prioritize comfort in their skincare routines.
3. Cosmetics - The cosmetics industry can tap into the demand for non-comedogenic skincare products and develop pore strips that target blackheads and prevent pore-clogging, appealing to consumers concerned about skin health and appearance.
