Osmosis Skincare MD Rescue Epidermal Repair Serum contains a revolutionary, patented ingredient that combines modern technology and an ancient oriental medicinal herb. Trioxolane, a specialized extract of sweet wormwood, has a remarkable ability to neutralize toxins, calm inflammation, activate epidermal wound repair, minimize the appearance of pores and age spots (an effect that lasts even after use is discontinued), and dramatically improve skin texture. This powerful serum works to improve skin's tone, texture, and overall health while improving blemish-prone and pigmented skin types. The unique formula also contains a patented anti-inflammatory ingredient to activate skin repair, target age spots, and pores, and soothe redness and clear blemishes. It does have an odd smell but the results are well worth it!
