About Potentci Dermal Lifting Hydrating Milk

Potentci is a unique hydrating milk that helps the skin retain moisture and powerfully repairs signs of aging, scarring and acne damage. It also provides key support to Illumina by inhibiting multiple acne causing mechanisms in the skin while helping replenish lipids in the skin barrier. In this skincare duo it functions as the moisturizer.

There is a myth that drying blemishes out is what works for acne but the exact opposite is true. When skin is dehydrated, it’s elasticity and barrier function are severely compromised – this results in much more impacted comedones and congestion. (Proper) hydration is crucial for healing acne.





It contains multiple hydration technologies including supplementing the skin barrier with oft neglected yet crucial lipids such as ceramides and cholesterol.


It also contains plant sacharrides extracted from beets that help the skin retain water moisture. Betaine helps maintain intracellular hydration, helping to prevent damage from environmental stressors such as UV radiation, and oxidation. Unlike traditional humectants, including hyaluronic acid, which draw moisture from the environment, beet betaine adds hydration directly due to it’s abundant source of saccharides and hydrates from within, making it a suitable choice for any climate or environment. 


A protective yet non-comedogenic glycoprotein derived from an Antarctic blue algae protects from physical water loss, pollution and significantly boosts collagen and elastin production (tests give these results: Collagen I increased 128% in 15 days; Collagen IV increased 81% in 15 days; Elastin Levels increased 31% in 15 days).


N-Acetyl Glucosamine is an amino sugar which increases proliferation of skin’s fibroblasts, leading to increased healing of wounds. It also increases collagen expression. Lastly, it causes the skin to increase the production of hyaluronic acid, which results in improved hydration and elasticity. 

This results in extremely favorable conditions for pore clogging. If the skin is not elastic, comedones and impactions form at a rate that is several times greater than in properly hydrated skin.

In addition, dehydrated skin is much more susceptible to being infiltrated by pollution and bacteria – this unnecessarily compromises the skin’s immunity and dilutes healing resources, which results in blemishes lasting longer and taking forever to heal. Not to mention, oxidation damage from pollution increases the rate of pre-mature aging.

The most important thing to do for acneic skin is to make sure hydration is increased and supported. This does not include using oils and anhydrous balms however – they do not provide hydration. The goal increasing the skin’s ability to retain WATER moisture and helping to balance and restore the complex combination of lipids in the skin barrier so it is functioning optimally.

Contrary to popular belief, oily skin is actually a sign that the skin is dehydrated, and while the instinct is to stop moisturizing, the exact opposite action should be taken, albeit with a properly formulated moisturizer. This will actually calm the skin and reduce sebum production. That is exactly what Potentci is formulated to do. 

Potentci  is safe for sensitive skin.

It is compatible with most serums and moisturizers and will not cause pilling.

It is to be used 1- 2x per day – in the pm and possibly in the am as well.
