I was introduced "Procyte Zi/-Ti-Silc Untinted SPF 45" some time ago and wow, what a difference it made to my appearance. It fades away the dark circles, and blemishes. It's a sunscreen so I put it on top of a moisturiser. But the thing was, it was milky/creamy/thick but once absorbed, it's not noticeable (doesn't look like makeup) and gives me a slightly flawless pale complexion (as it fades in with the rest of my skintone). Everyone comments how good/handsome I look. I been using this for years now.
Problem is, Procyte has rebranded themselves as NEOVA and changed the ingredients. NEOVA SHEER, etc. isn't the same. I tried looking into tinted moisturisers - again, it's just not the same.
I did a comparison with Procyte & NEOVA ingredient list and these were MISSING from NEOVA's new rebrand:
- Octyl Stearate
- Tocopheryl Acetate
- Octyl Salicylate
- Aloe Extract
I know Octyl Stearate is bad (blocks pores)... but I suspect the milky complexion causing ingredient that is Caramel (I could be wrong). This is an unsual ingredient. Note it's not Caramel colour... but the actual sugar?? Anyway, maybe someone who knows about these ingredients can shed light on which ones created the milky complexion.... Right now, am needing advice on replacement brand/product that is very similar to what I've used before with Procyte.
