New Launch Alert: A look into Lacto Calamine Face Serums

Lacto Calamine Serum

Most of us relate “Lacto Calamine” to its cult classic “Lacto Calamine Lotion”. But did you know that Lacto Calamine is the name of the brand itself and they have other products too? Yes, they have face washes, peels, wipes, and sunscreen too. The Lacto Calamine Sunscreen is quite popular too for being a budget-friendly sunscreen.

What intrigued me now is its newly launched serums. Following suit of the trending active-based products in the market, it’s interesting to see the affordable beauty brand venture into.

Lacto Calamine is owned by Piramal Healthcare, a leading pharmaceutical and healthcare company and the face serums are manufactured by Cheryl Laboratories which again is a reputed manufacturer of pharmacy products.


The details of the three Lacto Calamine Serums are as follows:

1. Lacto Calamine 2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum

It is said to be a quick-absorbing, lightweight formula. It is suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.

Ingredients Analysis:

As you can see, it has Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate at the top – both are excellent humectants to lock in moisture into the skin – which is responsible to give you give plump and supple skin.

It has Laminaria Digitata Extract – a marine extract rich in amino acids and nutrients. This ingredient is very helpful in soothing redness, and irritations caused by sun exposure.

Lastly, we can see that it has 5 types of Ceramides. Though it’s at the end of the Ingredient list – which means lower in concentration. It’s still interesting to see that in a Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Ceramides are great for repairing and strengthening the skin barrier.

The serum is fragrance-free, silicone-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and sulfate free.

Based on the initial reviews on Amazon, the Hyaluronic acid Serum is receiving positive reviews among consumers. People are loving it for being a fragrance-free, lightweight formula that also does its job of hydrating the skin perfectly.

Full Ingredient List:

Purified Water, Niacinamide, Propanediol, 1 2 Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Zinc PCA, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose.

The formulation of this Niacinamide Serum is pretty simple. It has got just 10 ingredients with no unnecessary fillers. Niacinamide is present at 10%. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid to provide hydration to the skin and Zinc PCA which has anti-inflammatory properties to help heal acne faster.

The serum is fragrance-free, silicone-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and sulfate free.


3. Lacto Calamine 2% Salicylic Acid Serum

What does it claim? This is a salicylic acid serum to unclog pores, control excess oil, combat acne, and minimize the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, and acne marks.

Full Ingredient List:

Purified Water, Propylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Niacinamide, Pisum Sativum (Pea) Seed Extract, Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Vaccinium Myritillus Fruit Extract, Saccharium Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Citric Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Tartaric Acid, Malic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Polyquaternium, L-Arginine, Sodium Hydroxide.

Ingredient Analysis:

This is an acne-fighting serum with multiple chemical exfoliators. 2% Salicylic Acid would deeply exfoliate to unclog pores and Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid – both are AHAs that provide surface-level exfoliation. So this product has both AHA and BHA. In addition, it has Niacinamide which is good for the skin barrier and brightening the skin.

Unlike the other two serums, this seems to be scented. From the ingredient list, we can see that it has many citrus fruit extracts, which can be sensitizing for some people.

The serum is paraben-free and Dermatologically Tested.

What do you think of these Lacto Calamine Serums? Do you want us to try any of them and share a review?

Apart from these serums, Lacto Calamine has also launched a Green Tea Moisturizer in a gel-based formula that’s apt for oily skin types. It’s a night gel with Green Tea, Hyaluronic Acid, and Fruit Extracts. We can already see that it’s been loved by many.

There is also a new anti-blemish cream with Kojic Acid, that targets to reduce blemishes and lighten skin.

I’m liking that the brand is exploring and expanding its range of products rather than being stuck with its sole star product.
