The wrong mix of skin micro flora can lead to unbalanced, ailing skin. But there are solutions.
Acme Hardesty's Botaniplex Balance SC is a synergistic mixture of plant extracts that sooth and rebalance irritated skin and scalp impacted by acne and dandruff caused by S. capitis and P. acnes bacteria.

Searches for scalp-centric treatments like scalp scrub and scrub massage increased 22.4% and 9.6%, respectively. Scalp flakes searches increased 47.6%, tender scalp searches increased 27.6% and dry scalp searches increased 7.9%.
