Description

Dermalex Acne Treatment is designed for people over the age of 14 with mild to moderate acne. It helps both to reduce the severity and size of spots and also to prevent future breakouts.

Spots can be caused by excessive sebum combining with dirt and dead skin cells to clog the pores. Bacteria are able to thrive in these conditions, resulting in whiteheads and blackheads and the associated redness, swelling, and irritation.

This treatment works on both the symptoms and the underlying causes of the acne; it restores balance to the skin by helping to control sebum production, reduces the growth of acne-causing bacteria, and moisturises the skin, protecting its natural ‘barrier’ without leaving it feeling greasy.

Many acne treatments either contain antibiotics to reduce bacteria or focus on only improving the appearance of the skin in the short term. This treatment is antibiotic-free and aims to provide a longer-lasting solution, creating a skin environment that is unfavourable for bacteria growth, without making it more sensitive to sunlight or other agents.

It is hypoallergenic, does not block the pores, and is free of perfume, steroids and parabens. The cream is suitable for long-term use and is easily absorbed into the skin.

Directions

Do not rinse off. Instead, allow the skin to absorb the cream for 15 minutes and then apply moisturiser or makeup, as needed.

Keep away from children. Use externally only, avoiding contact with the eyes.

Research & Evidence

For people with Acne

Dermalex Acne Treatment has been tested in a small open uncontrolled study of 32 subjects with mild-to-moderate acne on the face (1). The efficacy of the treatment was assessed by comparing clinical features of their acne before and after 4 weeks of twice-daily application. Clinical observations were demonstrated to reduce all major signs and symptoms of acne, including itching, erythema and scaling with 38%, 86% and 76% showing an improvement in these. Also, the study reports of reductions in the numbers of comedones (open -48%, and closed -45%), papules (-52%), and pustules (-41%). Overall, the severity of acne was clearly improved in 38% of the subjects.

The primary effects of the product is thought to be through inhibition of the growth and activity of Propionibacterium acnes, a skin bacteria known to be one of the main causing factors in acne pathogenesis (2), and by helping restore the skin’s acid mantle, moisture balance and barrier functionality.
