The Aknicare range includes a cream, lotion and skin roller.

Aknicare products are based on a combination of triethyl citrate and ethyl linoleate. Ethyl linoleate is broken down by enzymes in the skin to linoleic acid, a fatty acid that is deficient in acne-affected skin. Together with triethyl citrate, linoleic acid lessens skin thickening and limits oil production.

Other ingredients used in the products have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
