DESCRIPTION

High-strength vitamin and mineral blemish formula.

Why We Love It

This bestselling serum is a great way to get your daily dose of antioxidant B3 (Niacinamide) to brighten, help minimise pores and regulate sebum production - no wonder it has cult skincare status!

Size:
Quantity:
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity. Independent studies suggest Niacinamide is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone. 

Notes: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits.

ROUTINE

Apply after cleanser, toner and essence. 

HOW TO APPLY

Apply 2-3 drops onto fingertips and massage into entire face until absorbed. 

FOLLOW WITH

Emulsions, creams, oils and sunscreen.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

DECIEM advises: If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C.
