You may be stressed about keeping your muscles toned with daily exercise, but we’ve made toning your skin easy! Just a quick spritz with the S4 Face + Body Toner after cleansing strengthens, tones, soothes and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our cleanser is natural and includes ingredients that will assist your skin’s ability to stay balanced, but nothing can prevent your body’s natural pH level from changing during the cleansing process We take great care in determining the pH levels for our products because keeping your skin’s pH level in balance is just that important. In part, the S4 Simplified Facial Cleanser works by slightly raising the skin’s pH to allow the oil and debris to be removed easily. After cleansing we want your skin to go back into its comfort-zone pH level as quickly as possible. You may have noticed your skin feeling tight or taut after cleansing (no matter which product you've tried). That occurs with an increase in the skin’s pH level after cleansing. The combination of ingredients in our toner A main ingredient is D20, also known as heavy water, Face + Body Toner helps the skin resist water evaporation for longer-lasting moisture. Heavy water looks, feels and tastes like regular water, but it evaporates more slowly and requires 10 times as much energy to be ionized as regular water—helping to defend against radiation. While defending and moisturizing, this highly effective spritz also strengthens, tones and soothes the complexion.restores your skin’s pH to its comfortable and balanced level and reduces that tightness.

pH 4.6pH is a measure of acidity (1 being the most acidic) on one end and alkaline on the other (7 being a neutral level). To maintain a healthy balance and minimize bacteria growth, our skin needs to be at an ideal level of acidity, which is a pH level of about 5.5. Why isn’t the neutral pH of 7 better? Because our skin naturally has a thin protective layer known as the acid mantle, which is made up of fatty acids excreted from the skin's sebaceous glands. When we sweat, which is a good and healthy daily biological process, the fatty acids mix with lactic and amino acids from our sweat, creating our skin's pH level. As we go about our day, our skin’s acid mantle is being broken down by environmental elements we are exposed to (light, pollution, water, air, modern-day products, etc.). This challenges our skin's ability to protect itself. And if that isn’t scary enough, our skin becomes more acidic as we age based on what we put in our body and the prolonged exposure to these environmental elements! We take care in determining the pH levels for our products. Part of how our cleanser works is by slightly raising the pH to allow the oil and debris to be removed easily. After cleansing, it’s important for your skin to get back into its comfort zone level of a pH of 5.5 as quickly as possible. The S4 Face + Body Toner will do that. It’s combination of ingredients hydrates, adds moisture and strengthens your skin.

Aqua (Water)Retaining the right amount of water molecules is key to maintaining healthy skin.
AlcoholProvides a cooling effect, assists in absorption and helps the skin achieve an optimal pH level to maintain the overall integrity of the outermost layer of skin, which prevents the growth of bacteria. Due to its astringent properties it temporarily minimizes your pores, and allows your skin to be healthier and cleaner.
GlycerinA substance that helps attract and hold moisture in the skin. It moisturizes and lubricates the skin, promoting skin softness and smoothness. Glycerin also acts as a natural product preservative.
Polysorbate 20A sugar alcohol used as an emulsifier and humectant (substance that helps absorb and retain moisture) allowing the product to spread more easily. This is a food-grade ingredient.
Deuterium Oxide D2O (Heavy Water)Studies found that D2O lingers longer than regular H2O on the skin, thus providing a dewy feel and long-lasting hydration.
Sodium PCAPyrrolidone-5-carboxylic acid sodium salt (also known as L-sodium PCA and sodium L-pyroglutamate) is a naturally occurring amino acid, with excellent hydrating and moisturizing powers. It’s a component of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF). It’s safe and non-toxic.
