Why is this different?

A never seen before combination of PAD and Succinic Acid that has double the power to help control and prevent breakouts/ acne.  Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate is a derivative of Azelaic acid that has anti-inflammatory, brightening and  sebum controlling properties. It also helps to improve skin texture and fade post acne scars. Succinic acid has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and helps to control the bacteria that causes acne.

How Does it Work on the Skin?

  • 8% PAD (Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate) is a derivative of azelaic acid, known to treat inflammation, acne and regulate sebum. The glycine portion of the compound provides additional moisturising benefits. 
  • 5% Succinic acid inhibits the growth of “acne causing bacteria” and protects skin from future breakouts.

How to use?

  1. Apply 2-3 drops onto the skin after cleansing.
  2. Gently dab until the product is absorbed into the skin.
  3. Follow up with a moisturiser & sunscreen for best results.
  4. Go with ease-in-process i.e. slowly add the product into the routine & once your skin gets used to it increase the frequency.
