Zinc Ascorbate

Zinc ascorbate is a compound that combines the mineral zinc with ascorbic acid, which is a form of Vitamin C. It possesses anti-inflammatory properties which help to soothe and calm irritated skin.

The combination of Zinc and Vitamin C (both known potent antioxidants) helps to neutralise free radicals and oxidative stress in the skin. Zinc ascorbate’s vitamin C helps to soothe inflamed skin and reduce the inflammatory response associated with acne breakouts. Zinc is known to regulate sebum production, limiting the amount of oil produced and reducing the opportunity for the development of acne. Zinc ascorbate has also been shown to aid in wound feeling following acne-related inflammation and scarring.



Bisabolol is a natural, colourless and oily liquid that is derived from various plants, most notably the chamomile plant. It has the ability to enhance the penetration of other active ingredients into the skin, making it a valuable component in skincare as it increases the effectiveness of other beneficial ingredients.

Bisabolol has been found to contain anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that can inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria, such as Propionibacterium acne. It also helps to reduce the formation of new acne scars and lesions. With its anti-inflammatory nature, bisabolol may also help to calm and soothe inflamed acne-prone skin, reducing redness and swelling associated with acne breakouts.
