Clear Glow® is used in traditional Herbal Medicine as an alterative to help relieve skin conditions such as mild acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Alteratives are a mainstay of naturopathic practice and serve to rid the body of systemic toxins. The eight carefully blended herbs that makes up Clear Glow® have been chosen for their action as alteratives that pertain specifically to dermatological conditions.
St. Francis Herb Farm uses certified organic or wildcrafted herbs in our Clear Glow herbal formula.
Available sizes: 50ml, 100ml, 250ml and larger sizes for Health Professionals.
ECHINACEA ANGUSTIFOLIA: Probably the most popular and most widely known of herbal remedies, echinacea is a drought-tolerant perennial plant that can grow up to four feet in height. With immunological properties, it is native to the United States and a member of the daisy family. Its name comes from the Greek that means "hedgehog"--a reference to its spiky central disk. The medicinal compounds in the purpurea species known as alkamides are more bioavailable when in the presence of those from the angustifolia species. This is the rationale behind our EchinAce formula.
