Clearer and smaller-looking pores can be yours—without ever risking tightness or dryness. The secret is raw white willowbark, a powerful source of natural BHAs with multiple benefits: inflammation-calming, dead skin-dissolving, and texture-smoothing. Blended with hydrating squalane, it’s a first-of-its-kind fusion that dislodges and exfoliates away excess oil, dirt, and debris while also quenching skin. This blend of ancient wisdom and modern technology is made to balance the oiliest skin types without dehydrating the driest, and leaves skin refreshed and ready for the rest of your skincare regimen.

  • Mild exfoliation unclogs and minimizes pores, for a smooth and flawless look.
  • Includes willowbark extract, a natural source of exfoliating beta hydroxy acids that has the power of salicylic acid without the irritation.
  • BHA toner contains hydrating squalane—no alcohol—so skin is left softly refreshed and clean-feeling, never stripped or dry.

For external use only. Use only as directed. We recommend a patch test prior to use if you are particularly sensitive. If irritation occurs, consult a dermatologist.

  • No, this is alcohol free and is non-drying.
  • No, it contains Willow Bark Extract which contains natural salicylates. These act on the skin as a natural BHA would (gently exfoliating, tightening pores, balancing oil) but it is a much more anti-inflammatory ingredient.
  • The amount of Willowbark in our Pore Toner is equivalent to 2% BHA.

I'm Glowing!

Toner is my most important skin care product, and so I was excited to try a new one and see where it could take my skin. I've been so impressed with how smooth and glowing my skin has been in the few weeks since I switched over to the Squalane and BHA toner. Which is unfortunate, since the bottles are so small! I'm going to need to stock up!

Says EWG Verified, but the product name says BHA

Perhaps consider a re-brand on the name of this toner. I was concerned about the conflict between listing this toner as a BHA toner & also showing it's EWG verified. EWG's website clearly lists BHA as a concerning ingredient that's not allowed in EWG verified products. After looking into the ingredients listed & I'm seeing Biossance uses Betaine Salicylate, which isn't a EWG concern at all. The title of this product had all kinds of red flags popping up in my mind before I did a deep dive into the ingredients to find it's not actually BHA at all, but instead a safer alternative. SQUALANE + PORE-MINIMIZING TONER sounds much nicer IMO!

It works!

It's a bit expensive but it does work to minimize pores. I have large pores and sine I've been using it, I've noticed a drastic improvement.
