Zinc Lactate like PURAMEX ZN is both an efficient source of zinc and an important part of the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) – which helps keep skin moisturized.
A natural solution produced by fermentation of biobased carbohydrates, PURAMEX ZN reduces the sebum levels by inhibiting the enzymes that cause dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – which in turn creates the excess sebum that causes oily skin and acne – especially in the T-zone.
