Treatment toners are more targeted and are intended to solve specific skin problems. They’re usually marketed as soothing toners, brightening toners,anti-aging toners, balancing toners, and so on. They do more than hydrate the skin because they contain potent active ingredients. For example, a brightening toner would be formulated around vitamin C to get rid of discolorations.
Similarly, a soothing toner would contain soothing plant extracts like chamomile or allantoin to get rid of irritation and redness on the skin. An anti-aging toner would contain antioxidants to neutralize wrinkle-causing free radicals. Incidentally, exfoliating toners can be treatment toners as well.
Depending on the actives, treatment toners are suitable for all skin types to target skin concerns like excess oil, enlarged pores, scarring, or sensitivity.
