Special Healing Powder


From legendary aesthetician and skincare guru Mario Badescu comes a mystically named powder treatment that’s powerful enough to stand up to the breakout of breakouts, the aforementioned Special Healing Powder. A blend of natural oil-absorbing ingredients that include sulfur, kaolin, zinc oxide and calcium carbonate make up this formula, a small amount absorbing the by-products of even the most over-active sebaceous glands.

Unlike other powders that sit on the skin, this powder acne treatment draws out impurities and pore-clogging buildup for clearer, smother, more balanced skin. The sulfur base does the heavy lifting absorbing excess oil, and also reduces redness and irritation. A little goes a long way with this product, which is Made in the USA and not tested on animals.

To use, dust the powder sparingly on irritated, excessively oily areas of the face a few times a week or even daily if needed. It can also be mixed in with cosmetic facial powder as well, combating shine with a straightforward and simple solve that’s made the Mario Badescu name a 50-year classic.
