Picture Porefect Pore Minimizing Solution – Product Description
The active ingredients in Picture Porefect Pore Minimizing Solution are glycolic acid, azelaic acid, retinol, sebum sequestering microparticles, aluminum zirconium tetra and chlorhydrex glycine.
Glycolic acid is a sugar derivative. It is a natural acid that can be found in various fruit and food. The manufacturer’s decision to use glycolic acid in the formulation of in the product, was based on the low molecular weight of glycolic acid. The lower molecular weight allows the glycolic acid to penetrate deeper in to the epidermis. Studies suggest that glycolic acid is also valuable for its ability to loosen “cellular cement”. Simply stated, “cellular cement” is the substance that attaches it’s self to the molecules forming unwanted skin conditions like acne, sun damage, and hyper pigmentation. The use of products that contain glycolic acid should be cautioned as the acid can be erosive to skin.
Azelaic acid is used for it’s ability to normalize the keratinization process, while helping the prevention of the formation of pore plugs at the source. Azelaic is also used to kill bacteria.
Retinol is a form of vitamin A, that is known to stabilize antioxidants, which are effective in preventing further environmental damage to the skin caused by free radicals. It is difficult to get just the right amount of vitamin A in a retinol formula; too much and the product becomes an irritant to skin. If the concentration is too little there will be no visible effects.
Sebum Sequestering Micro Particles are microscopic polymer sponges which absorb excess surface oils without drying or irritation.
And finally, Aluminum Zirconium Tetra Chlorohydrex Glycine, which is an astringent used to prevent the appearance of the skin’s pores.
The manufacturer recommends that the product not be used by women who are pregnant or nursing.
