Ingredient in the Spotlight: Succinic Acid

Succinic Acid is a pinnacle ingredient within all of our AquaGem Skincare  products, shrouded in mystery, acronyms and jargon, we’ve made it our mission to uncover what Succinic Acid really is and how it is used within our very own range. Enter Succinic Acid: An anti-microbial compound naturally present in Amber and found in plant and animal tissues, it has primarily been used as a sweetener in the food industry. It’s only recently with a growing number of studies we are discovering that Succinic Acid has many powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it sits at the perfect intersections of a few of our current preoccupations of holistic wellness and beauty.

Recognised for it’s healing properties, Succinic Acid has quickly moved on from the Amber teething beads realm of traditional healthcare to something that can be seen as slick, sophisticated and luxurious within the beauty industry. Ideal for combination skin, anti-inflammatory Succinic Acid is excellent for calming chronic skin conditions such as eczema, as well as for balancing oily and congested complexions. It helps to regulate skin’s sebum synthesis, which leads to fewer skin concerns such as spots and blackheads, as well as reversing visible signs of ageing.

Self-care has become extremely prominent and rightly so, pollution and fast-paced living has sparked somewhat of a stress crisis and the skin is the first thing to suffer as a consequence. Succinic Acid’s properties resemble our own skin’s lipids, also known as fats with natural anti-ageing abilities to deeply hydrate and penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin, counteracting free-radical damage and visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Our Cheat Code Lightweight Moisturiser  is a powerful, innovative and efficacious proprietary formula containing Succinic Acid, promoting healthy skin cell formation and increases skin cell turnover for quicker healing whilst

I also wanted to make some clarification on this one. We need to make sure that people do not get a perception that succinic acid acts as SPF, so I am not sure gif it’s a good idea to mention this at all. Please let me know what do you think
