New skin care brand ZitSticka has launched a new product to help tackle the signs of acne.
The new Killa patch product (US$29) features micro dart technology to prevent new spots appearing on the skin’s surface, thanks to its blend of hyaluronic acid, niacin amide and salicylic acid.
These ingredients work to actively kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation.
Commenting on the new launch, ZitSticka’s co-founder, Daniel Kaplan said: “We set out to develop an active product that permeates beyond the epidermal layer and into a zit’s nucleus.
“After countless hours of research and trial, and error, ZitSticka was born.”
Meanwhile, Kaplan’s co-founder, Robbie Miller hopes their own brand can tackle the stigma around acne.
He said: “We want to promote transparency and a sense of modern normalcy so people become more comfortable in their own skin.”
When Killa is applied to skin, the patch’s adhesive encloses the early-stage spot, keeping the area protected from environmental elements to penetrate the stratum corneum and epidermis before dissolving within two hours.
