Based on mastic, an aromatic resin coming from the
bark of a tree that grows on the Greek island of Chios,
PoreAway tightens dilated pores – making them invisible –
and purifies the skin.
The application of mastic in modern cosmetics has been
limited due to its stickiness and insolubility in water.
Mibelle Biochemistry has developed a technique to make
a water-soluble mastic preparation suitable for cosmetic
applications. PoreAway, the resulting product, is easy to
formulate and not sticky.
Clinical studies conducted on Caucasian and Asian women
with dilated pores and impure skin showed that PoreAway:
• tightens dilated pores
• refines the skin grain
• reduces imperfections such as comedones and
• reduces skin shine.
