FAQ's Succinic Acid Acne Treatment

HOW OFTEN SHALL I USE IT?

 It can be applied up to three times daily on the areas required. 


CAN I USE IT ON MY BODY?

Yes, you can use it anywhere you experience blemishes.


WHAT CAN I LAYER IT WITH?

If using after other actives such as exfoliating acids, Retinol, Vitamin c, Niacinamide, we'd suggest to avoid applying these on the areas you wish to spot treat. 


WHY IS IT GREEN? 

The colour is obtained from a natural chlorophyll derived plant pigment. Due to the different weather conditions and seasons the plant is exposed to, the shade of the product formula you use may vary in brightness so it will change from production run to production run


WANTING CLEARER SKIN?

Cleanse with Salicylic Acid Cleanser in the AM or PM and follow with Hyaluronic Acid for hydration which is essential for heathy skin. Follow with applying Succinic Acid Treatment to the blemish affected areas up to three times a day until the blemish is gone.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Products using retinol can take up to six weeks to show results. This is how long it takes for your skin cells to turnover. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don\'t overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH Level 5.0 -6.0

Strong and smells

I really wanted to love this product. I have a few spots on my nose and chin where I can't seem to get rid of the blemishes. The first time I used this product I used it according to instructions - it burned, and gave me blemishes. The next few times I've used it on top of other products and then it seems ok, the spots do seem less red after I've used it. But it's very drying and smells horrbly.

Hey Michaela! Thank you for your review and we're so sorry to hear Succinic Acid wasn't for you. Please do let us know if you'd like any help with the application, as a burning sensation should not be occurring for you 🖤

Excellent product

Ordered this for my teeneger son, who had begun to have problems with his skin. He started using this in the evening, after the salisylic acid cleanser and within just a week his skin was so much better. I have tried it myself too, I have sometimes small breakouts and this really improves the situation overnight and the blemish is gone in few days.

It's working great without drying my skin

I really love this stuff. It's working great on my breakouts. Sometime I use it as a spottreatment over night, means I use a little bit more than they recommend, and even than it's not drying my skin. I just do it, when I get one of this nasty spots deep down in my skin, you know the ones that hurt really bad. For my smaller ones on the surface of my skin, it's enough to use it like they recommend it. I don't care if it's the sulfur, the salicylic acid,succinic acid or all of them together. It's working great!
