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.

It works

It heals the acne fast. Works good on the acne scars too.


This is a good formulated serum for acne oily prone skin. It helped in controlling my acne and fading of acne marks to some extent.

Try this for acne

Started using this after using breakout control serum for a while. I didn’t notice any irritation. I have combination skin and my chin is always having 2-3 acne around that time of the month. This helps in clearing acne and fading marks. Since last year I started getting acne on my checks as well and after consistent use I noticed less frequent acne on my checks and whatever I get on chin heal fast. I recommend this serum.

Great product for acne

Been using this for a month now. Was suffering from adult acne since last six months. Had even stopped eating any sugar, junk, everything. Nothing worked. My chin was so bad I was scared to remove my mask.
But in month my skin changed. Specially the acne marks have lightened. Though acne keeps coming quiet often, but they are small in size and stays not more than 2 days.
I use is a night and in morning just spot treatment. Anybody can try using this, specially to lighten marks.
I am recommending to other people suffering from acne.
