PRO TIP: Past beauty trends has shown facial serums being applied with droppers directly onto skin. This results in cross contamination and invites bacteria and germs into your skincare products. To avoid compromising your skincare, hover the dropper to dispense.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not disclose our formulas. These remain confidential and the property of Skinned Pty Ltd. We protect our formulas so that brands do not replicate our product formulations and then saturate the market. We do however disclose the following important percentages for transparency and for our customers to have a better understanding of the skincare they are purchasing and to make informed decisions regarding their skin. Our Vitamin B Serum contains 5% Niacinamide.
Apply directly to freshly cleansed damp or dry skin and gently pat or massage in an outward motion. A rule of thumb with serums is that less is more – the amount will vary from person to person, however applying a pea-sized amount is the perfect starting point. Apply enough serum to lightly cover (not coat) your entire face and neck while resisting the urge to slather it on.
⦁ Problematic skin: Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and panthenol (Vitamin B5) are the heroes here. The cherry on top of this sundae is the fact that they’re gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. These quiet achievers are game changers on dull, dehydrated, reactive, ageing AND redness-prone skin.
⦁ Acne prone skin: Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has an antibiotic-like effect on the skin, and helps to soothe skin conditions that result in inflammation and acne.
⦁ Oily skin: Supercharged with panthenol (Vitamin B5), breakouts and excess oil production can become a thing of the past. Panthenol breaks down fats including sebum and is the vitamin of choice for oily skin when used topically.
