Crafting the Perfect Formula: The Benefits of Alcohol-Free Zit Spray with Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree, and Hinoki Cypress

Annelise Hillmann • Jun 29, 2023

In the pursuit of clear and healthy skin, we often find ourselves on the lookout for effective and reliable solutions to combat acne and breakouts. While alcohol-based products have traditionally been popular in treating acne, a growing trend in skincare focuses on developing alcohol-free alternatives. Our commitment to creating a superior product led us to formulate an alcohol-free Zit Spray enriched with Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Extract, Hinoki Cypress, and eight botanical extracts. In this blog, we will explore the reasons behind our choice and dive into the remarkable benefits of this innovative formula.

Alcohol-Free Formulation

The decision to make our FRONTMAN® Zit Spray alcohol-free stems from our commitment to providing a product that is gentle yet effective. While alcohol is known for its antibacterial properties, it can also be excessively drying and irritating to the skin, leading to redness and inflammation. Inflammation could even lead to enlarged pores or more frequent breakouts over time. An alcohol-free formula ensures that our Zit Spray is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and dry skin, without compromising its effectiveness in combating acne.

It's not necessary to use alcohol to make an effective anti-acne spray. So we decided to completely side step the downsides of this ingredient.

Salicylic Acid: The Acne-Fighting Powerhouse

Salicylic Acid, a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), is widely recognized as a potent ingredient in treating acne. It exfoliates the skin, unclogs pores, and reduces sebum production, effectively preventing and treating breakouts. By incorporating Salicylic Acid into our Zit Spray, we provide a targeted solution that addresses acne at its foundation, promoting clear and healthy skin.

Tea Tree Extract: Nature's Antiseptic

Tea Tree Extract has long been revered for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Its natural antibacterial properties make it an excellent choice for fighting acne-causing bacteria, reducing inflammation, and soothing irritated skin. By including Tea Tree Extract in our Zit Spray, we harness the power of nature to combat acne while promoting a calm and balanced complexion.

Hinoki Cypress: Balancing Oil Production & Boosting Immunity

Hinoki Cypress is a super interesting ingredient in Japanese skincare known for its astringent properties. By regulating sebum production, Hinoki Cypress helps prevent excess oiliness that can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.

Research also has shown that Hinoki Cypress activates the skin's natural immunity, telling cells to fight the bacteria in acne. 

Eight Botanical Extracts: Natural Nourishment

In addition to the powerful trio of Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Extract, and Hinoki Cypress, our Zit Spray is infused with a blend of eight botanical extracts carefully selected for their skin-soothing and nourishing properties. These extracts include Korean Pasque Flower, Lichen, Yuzu, Japanese Umbrella Tree, Sacred Lotus, Lavender, Centella Asiatica Extract, and Boswellia Serrata Extract. They work synergistically to calm inflammation, promote healing, and provide antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to the skin.


By formulating our Zit Spray as an alcohol-free solution enriched with Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Extract, Hinoki Cypress, and eight botanical extracts, we have developed a powerhouse product that effectively fights breakouts while remaining gentle and suitable for all skin types. This unique blend of ingredients works harmoniously to address multiple concerns, from reducing sebum production and combating zit-causing bacteria to soothing inflammation and promoting overall skin health.
