Murad Inc. has launched a regimen designed to clear and tighten pores. Pore Reform helps strengthen the pores’ natural support structure and reduce the appearance of blackheads caused by dead skin cells, oil and dirt in the follicles. By keeping pores clear of clogging debris and regulating oil production, the products in the Pore Reform line balance the health of the skin’s surface layer to provide a smooth, refined and even complexion.
The Pore Reform line comprises: Daily Cleansing Foam ($28.00 for 5.1 FL. OZ.), a dual-action foaming cleanser that washes away dirt, oil and pore-clogging impurities; T-Zone Pore Refining Serum ($42.00 for 2.0 FL. OZ.), a daily treatment that works to normalize oil production while lifting away dull, dry skin cells; Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo ($49.50), a two step treatment that helps clear blackheads and seal pores with lasting protection against impurities and oxidation; and Balancing Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 | PA++ ($35.00 for 1.7 FL. OZ), a lightweight daily moisturizer that helps control oil production while delivering antioxidant protection against skin damaging UVA/UVB rays.
Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo is formulated with the company's Oxidation Reversal Complex, a proprietary technology that helps reverse and prevent sebum oxidation. It was shown in clinical trials to reduce the formation of blackheads by an average of 58%.
“The information gathered from a recent study we conducted showed that women aged 30-45 named pore size/clogged pores as one of their top three skin concerns,” said Jeff Murad, VP of new product development at Murad. “Understanding that there was a gap in the market, we wanted to find a solution to the fast-growing consumer concern associated with large pores and blackheads."
