  5. SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream

SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream is an active created to treat moderate (mid-level) acne. It fights pus-filled acne, fades scars left by previous acne and strengthens the skin barrier. The cream can be used on all types of skin.

Why Is SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream Unique?

1. Non-Drying

Most acne control serums available in the market contain powerful exfoliants that tend to dry out the skin. Whereas SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream is non-drying.

2. Non-Comedogenic

Certain skin care products lead to comedones (blocked pores) on the skin. The lightweight texture and ingredients of the SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream makes it non-comedogenic and safe to use on sensitive skin as well.

3. Strengthens & Improves Skin Barrier

The presence of vitamins and a glucose derivative aids in protecting the skin’s outer layers from foreign substances and improves its overall texture.

Ingredients In SkinKraft Advanced Acne & Intense Scar Defense Cream 

1. Azelaic Acid

2. Niacinamide

A vitamin B3 derivative, it fades away the scars from the previous acne thereby giving skin a smooth and even texture.

3. Gluconolactone

It not only hydrates the skin but also strengthens the stratum corneum.
