It also contains superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme and amazingly effective antioxidant that attacks free radicals. This Rooibos Rose Toner balances your skin’s pH, removes built-up oil and grime, and closes and tightens pores, reducing size and appearance. This formula is beneficial for normal to dry, combination, acne-prone, rosacea-prone, and maturing skin types.
