Are single-ingredient skincare products like One Thing worth it?

When to choose single-ingredient skincare products?

Sensitive or allergy-prone skin

It is recommended to use single-ingredient products for specific skin types. This primarily benefits those with sensitive or allergy-prone skin who don’t want to use multi-action products for the fear that their skin may react to other ingredients adversely. Single-ingredient products enable them to use skincare products with more control over what they’re applying to their skin.

Targeted treatments

Single-ingredient products for those who are looking to treat specific skin conditions in isolation. If someone has a skin concern that has not been healing for a while, they should opt for products with a single active ingredient as it can help the skin from within. Single-ingredient products are ideal for skin concerns like acne, pigmentation, open pores and even dry skin.

Layered products

If you’ve always preferred layering products in your daily routine, you’ll find that the right cocktail of hero ingredients will help you check off your skincare goals. Ideally, the actives should be used in order of pH, from lowest to highest. Lower pH activities, such as Vitamin C, AHAs and BHAs, can be applied earlier in the routine as they are able to sink deeper into the skin. Higher pH activities meanwhile, such as Vitamin A, hyaluronic acid and most oils, should appear later in the routine.

Phased treatments

In order to truly leverage the capacity of single-ingredient products for targeted treatment. For instance, if one has acne and acne marks, it’s important to solve acne first by salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Once the active acne has settled down, it is time to move on and treat the acne marks with niacinamide.
