To Be Clear

Resurfacing Exfoliating Mask
Title
Best for all skin types looking to reveal radiant skin.
Title
£45.00

To Be Clear is a four-tiered exfoliating mask. Its smart exfoliation system physically and chemically removes dead skin cells and leaves the complexion soothed, hydrated, calmed and refreshed.

We’ve spent years researching the best way to effectively exfoliate darker skin without increasing inflammation or damaging the complexion. 

Using pink clay, a natural detoxifier, To Be Clear buffs away dead skin cells, remineralises and rebalances the complexion. Glycolic acid and a duo of Salicylic Acids work together to unclog pores, treat acne and reveal renewed skin, whilst Pumpkin Enzyme cleans up the cells that have been buffed away to ensure the skin is left smoothed and clear.

A blend of precious oils including Oat, Rose and Shea Butter work in tandem with Calendula Extract and Niacinamide to hydrate and soothe post-exfoliation, nurturing the new skin that’s been revealed. 

Safe for use in the sun. Use it as an exfoliator or as a mask weekly, to reveal a revitalized, rebalanced complexion.

4 reasons why our products are 
highly effective for darker skin tones

Reason #1: 
The Beauty-Enhancing Elixir

As you may already know, most skincare products are made of up to 80% water. And guess what water they use? Tap water, of course. 

 

Tap water contains impurities and contaminants, such as chlorine and heavy metals, which can irritate the skin and cause dryness or sensitivity. Additionally, it lacks essential minerals and nourishing properties, which leads to less effective hydration and revitalization of the skin.


On the other hand, at 4.5.6 Skin we use a special form of water that we create in our very own lab. It’s called Hexagonal water, and we use it in ALL our products.

 

This type of water has the awesome ability to dive deep into your skin, hydrating like nobody's business and leaving your skin looking and feeling amazing. 

 

We don’t use hexagonal water because it’s “cool.” We use it because it’s EXACTLY what darker skin tones need. Here’s why:

 

The structure of darker skin is often thicker and prone to water loss, leading to dehydration. Traditional skincare hydration, heavy on occlusives like plastics, suits lighter tones but not darker ones. 

 

For deeper hydration, we replenish and fortify the skin with plastic-free occlusives. That’s why we use Hexagonal water. 

 

By turning water into an active ingredient, we combat dehydration, inflammation, and weakness specific to darker skin tones.

 

Quite frankly, just our water alone blows other brands out of the water. 

But that’s not all. Let’s move on to secret #2.

Reason #2:
Gentle & Nourishing Texture Agents

Texture agents are the ingredient that gives skincare products that smooth, gliding feel. 

Typically, most skincare brands turn to plastics and silicones for this, but they can be harsh on darker skin, causing inflammation and dryness. 


We thought, "Let's switch things up." That's why we use plant-based, amino acid-derived agents—they're gentle on the skin and leave it feeling nourished and soothed.

Reason #3: 
Safe & Natural Preservatives

When it comes to product preservation, most skincare products use endocrine disruptors like parabens and phenoxyethanol. Which can cause irritation and mess with hormonal balance — especially for young women. 

Honestly, we couldn't bear the thought of potentially harming someone's reproductive health. 


So, we took a stand. No compromise.


Instead of using endocrine disruptors, we use a blend of gentle acids and phenylpropanol—a natural alternative that not only preserves but also boosts ingredients’ efficacy.

Reason #4: 
Complex Active Ingredients 
Formulated For Women Of Color

We know darker skin tones are extra sensitive. Therefore, instead of cramming in high percentages of single hero ingredients, we opt for complexes of active ingredients at smaller doses. 

That’s why our formulations not only treat skin issues but also target the root causes, reducing sensitivity and inflammation while boosting the skin's defense mechanisms. It's like giving your skin a team of allies, each ingredient working together for optimal results.

Yes! I'd love to have a radiant skin

Meet our founder

As a woman of color struggling with acne and hyperpigmentation, I was frustrated with skincare from ‘clinical experts’ that didn’t address the specific needs of my skin. 

 

In fact, our research revealed that darker skin tones are physiologically different . And therefore, they require a different treatment. 

 

Sadly, phototypes IV, V, & VI (non-white skin tones) have not been included in research and development or testing - which means that most skincare product that are marketed to us, aren't actually formulated for us. 

 

I vowed that healthy glowing skin should be accessible to everyone
