"Pyratine is a new anti-inflammatory ingredient in skin-care products that has amazing capabilities to reduce pigmentation and inflammation," says Dr. Sadick. Developed by the same people who created kinetin, pyratine has shown significant promise in being able to reduce redness caused by rosacea or flushing symptoms — something that used to only be able to be achieved by using IPL or a skin laser. Dr. Sadick says it's currently only being used in physicians' skin care lines, but that it should start trickling into the general beauty market in the next year.
