How Does Smacne Work?

Why Water-Based Products Don't Work

Oil vs. Water

Oil and water don't mix, but oil and oil do, that's science.

Your skin makes oil because it needs it to survive and it’s impossible to get rid of because it’s constantly making more. So when you use a water-based product, the active ingredients have a hard time penetrating your skin’s natural oil barrier to get deep into your skin and do the dirty work of cleaning deep into your pores. Instead, they just stay on the skin's surface leaving the root of the problem largely untouched.

Oil’s not the problem. It’s the solution:

Smacne’s oil-based solution is laced with acne fighting ingredients, which allows it to penetrate your skin’s natural oil barrier and get pulled deep into the skin, making it impossible for acne to survive on your skin. It’s like having an anti-acne oil barrier on your skin.

Oil-Based Treatment Infused with Magically Stacked Ingredients

Our magical stack of ingredients blends the very best from both science and nature for acne into one kit, which work together in harmony to create a magical symphony that one lonely ingredient couldn’t achieve on its own. And you know what they say, strength in numbers, or in our case, clear skin.

Tea tree


This healing plant has anti-bacterial and anti-irritant properties, making it ideal for acne-prone skin.



Most powerful moisturizer, able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. It’s also something that your body makes naturally, so it absorbs easily into your skin.



Also known as alpha hydroxy acid or AHA, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, decreases enlarged pores and acne. It is the gold standard in exfoliating products as it clear pores and removes dead skin.

Aloe vera


Known for its hydrating, anti-inflammatory benefits and creates a protective barrier on the skin. It is rich in vitamins A, B , C, D and E as well as minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc.


Acne Fighting

A powerful ingredient to treat acne. It works by killing bacteria underneath the skin, exfoliating the pores and excess sebum (oil). We super charge benzoyl peroxide with our other ingredients for deeper penetration.


Pore Clearing

Penetrates into your skin and works to dissolve the dead skin cells clogging your pores.



Referred to as an “oil” but it is, in fact, a liquid wax. And that makes all the difference. Unlike other skincare oils, the wax structure of jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oils of our skin. And, it's suitable for all skin types, including those with acne as it won't break you out.

3 steps to clearer skin


The Smacne Cleanser uses pro-quality AHAs and BHAs to unclog pores and removes acne-causing oils to prep the skin for the treatment.

Penetrate & Replace

Penetrate and replace the natural oil on your skin with our anti-acne oil based treatment laced with acne fighting ingredients. Smacne uses a blend of salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and tea tree oil to attack acne from every source deep within.


Smacne uses a special blend of jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to keep skin moisturized, balanced and healthy because clear skin doesn't have to be dry or irritated.

Aloe Vera
Exfoliating Cleanser

Clears out any impurities, exfoliates your pores, and removes oil on your skin, so that it is fresh and to prep the skin for the treatment. The pH of our cleanser is around 4 to help release the “glue” that holds old skin together and clears up pores.

Acne Treatment

Our treatment is oil-based rather than water-based, and is designed to replace the oil on your skin after it is prepped. This new oil does not cause breakouts and is laced with acne fighting ingredients so that it kills acne instead of causing it along with helping to balance and reduce the oil levels on your skin. Our treatment has a pH of about 5, which is about the same pH as your skin in order to keep it neutral as possible.
