Why is this different?

This acne control serum is a new age everyday use formula to reduce acne/breakouts on skin and reduce acne marks and spots. By utilizing potassium azeloyl diglycinate, a superior derivative of azelaic acid , this breakout control serum works better than pure azelaic acid & azelaic acid cream and even at lower concentrations, due to increased bioavailability of the ingredient. The added probiotic – lactococcus Ferment Lysate helps to maintain the normal skin microbial flora and thus, the skin barrier system.  Being a water based formulation, it is friendly for all skin types – oily skin & even dry skin with acne!

How Does it Work on the Skin?

Boon for PCOS

As someone with PCOS, hormonal acne is a big issue that comes with it. But using this serum has been a blessing for me as it really control the amount of acne I used to get. I only use it twice a week as it can overexfoliate my sensitive skin.
