What are the ingredients in Zit Zapper?
What exactly is hydrocolloid? Is it proven to work?
Hydrocolloids work on the acne blemish by creating a protective seal over the skin, while absorbing excess fluid such as oil and pus, flattening spots faster and reducing inflammation/skin redness. They are also commonly used in the medical industry to cover and protect wounds from bacterial infection. Many doctors and dermatologists highly recommend hydrocolloid and give it a big thumbs up for calming acne breakouts.
