Science behind this product:

Azeclair (Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, or PAD), a glycinated derivative of azelaic acid, offers all the benefits of azelaic acid, primarily acne reduction via oil control, skin clarification and anti-inflammation.

Environmental aggressors like UV & air pollutants may induce oxidative response in human skin. These aggressors can form peroxidated squalene, which in turn induces upregulation of inflammatory cytokines. PAD successfully downregulates the production of IL-6 and IL-8 (cytokine that regulates the immune and inflammatory response) to reduce inflammatory responses. PAD also imparts inhibitory effects on 5-α reductase activity and thus reducing sebum production, giving an oil-free skin.

This product also contains Propolis Extract, that is a very diverse product. At least 300 active compounds have been identified in Propolis, like, caffeic, ferulic, p-coumaric, benzoic acid, and cinnamic acid. Its antiseptic properties makes it a preferred ingredient for treatment of various skin infections, including fungal infections. Presence of flavonoids (pinocembrin and pinobanksin), phenolic acids (caffeic acid) and terpenes, give Propolis antiseptic & anti-fungal properties, making it very suitable for fungal infections and reduction of acne vulgaris. 

For normal sebum production in our body, MC5R, a type of protein, is necessary. Disruption of MC5R results in decrease in sebum production. In an in-vitro study, Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract has been shown to reduce MC5R levels by 36.6%, resulting in reduction in sebocytes differentiation and sebaceous lipid levels, hence reducing skin sebum. 

Studies (in-vivo / in-vitro)*:
1. Azeclair: Studies has shown that Azeclair has significant effect in reducing active sebum follicles (-18.89%), follicular sebum secretion rate (-37.51%), as well as total sebum excretion rate (-37.47%) after 28 days of treatment.

2. Propolis Extract: In-vivo studies shows that Propolis Extract, when used at 4% (like in this serum) results in 60% reduction in acneic lesions after 30 days. 

3. Matmarine (Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract): In a test, Matmarine reduced active sebum follicles by 9.5% and total surface by 27.2% which results in reduction in sebum (when used at 3% concentration, twice a day)

to use

  • AM & PM, after cleansing and hydrating with Hyaluronic Acid. Apply 2-3 drops. With a gentle circular motion, you can spread it all over your face.
  • Although it is a lightweight formula that quickly sinks in, wait for 1-2 minutes before applying other serums or moisturizers.
  • This is a fragrance free product (i.e. no external artificial fragrance has been added to this product), but Propolis imparts a characteristic sweet fragrance to the product. Propolis also gives a golden yellow/brown color to the product, which can change over time, without effecting the efficacy of the product.

This product ruined my skin.

I was convinced that this serum would help my acne and inflamed skin, owing to its promising description, but as soon as I started using it, my skin started breaking out a lot and it became very red and inflamed. I thought that my skin must be purging so I decided to wait a little longer before ditching the product. I waited two weeks but the results weren't getting better. I was getting painful acne and nothing was helping. So, I had to stop using this product. My skin is doing better now.

Works perfectly

I've been using this product from past four months and my acne has healed. Active acne is gone and acne scars have reduced.
Must try!

Cleared my PIH

I have tried so many different things for my PIH. This is the best serum and it works so well! It is light and absorbs quickly. I use it on alternate nights and follow it up with the retinol 0.3%. It has cleared up much of the uneven skin tone and some marks as well.
