An active serum to treat oily skin, acne and rosacea with 2% XS hyaluronic acid and 1% Zinc PCA. The serum can be used pure as a treatment for acne and rosacea or mixed with other serums to prepare a more specific and personalized product. The formulation is one of the most respectful of the skin and the environment. All product ingredients are from renewable sources and the product is packaged in a single 75ml bottle to reduce waste. An ecological and responsible treatment that does not compromise on the results. It's as close as it gets, in terms of being kind to the environment and kind to the skin. Zinc is one of the widely studied and used minerals for acne treatments mainly due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Zinc helps heal rashes, rejuvenation, wards off itchy scalp and acts as an antioxidant. Numerous scientific researches have shown that zinc reduces sebum secretion by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase. The regulation of seborrhea is androgen-dependent, in particular by testosterone. Each target cell of the sebaceous gland contains an enzyme, 5 alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydroxytestosterone (DHT). DHT acts on the activity of the hair follicle, causing the stimulation of the sebaceous gland and the consequent increase in sebum production. In order to increase its effectiveness and its bioavailability for the cells, we combine zinc with L-pyrrolidone carboxylic acid (L-PCA), a natural physiological molecule which also has a fundamental place in the biochemistry of the skin. PCA is considered a physiological moisturizer in cosmetology. Carboxylic acids are used for several skin benefits, including topical treatments like acne, rosacea, warts, eczema, and psoriasis. Zinc PCA controls acne and reduces the secretion of sebum (a physio-seboregulator) by oily skin, and helps retain skin moisture by strengthening the skin barrier. XS hyaluronic acid with its very low molecular weight reinforces the effect of ZincPCA by boosting hydration. Serum can be mixed in any ratio with other mixlab serums to create a custom formulation with added benefits. It can also be added (2 doses) to the hyaluronic mix-mask.
