Unreinheiten & Akne
When talking about acne, most people are referring to Acne vulgaris, not the much less common forms such as Acne tarda, Acne papulopustulosa, or Acne inversa, among others. About 90% of adolescents and young adults are diagnosed with Acne vulgaris.
The prevalence among teenagers suggests that hormonal imbalances are among the primary causes. This is further corroborated by the occurrence of acne in pregnant women and those going through menopause.
However, there are other potential causes to consider, such as overactive sebaceous glands, genetic predisposition, and specific bacteria.
How Can Our Ingredients Help Combat Acne?
Our unique formulation targets all four major symptoms of acne through a combination of various active ingredients and mechanisms, ensuring maximum effectiveness. Our specially selected compounds help normalize skin cell turnover, regulate sebum production, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, and alleviate inflammation. As a result, redness is reduced, pores are cleansed, and inflammatory processes are halted. Additionally, our serum has the ability to lighten pigmentation, scars, and acne marks, refining your skin's texture. Gradually, your skin's natural protective barrier is rebuilt, leading to a fresh and clear complexion. Our anti-blemish and acne serum consists of three groups of active ingredients: the A-N-T Complex, the Power Complex, and the All-Nature Complex. We'll delve into how these complexes and their individual ingredients work to combat acne in the sections that follow.
The A-N-T Complex
It's not just the perfectly synergistic combination of the three active ingredients that makes our formulation effective against acne; it's also the outstanding properties of each individual ingredient that contribute to its efficacy.
In the first step, Azelaic Acid gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells. It also inhibits the formation of new blackheads, cleanses pores, and hampers the growth of Propionibacterium acnes bacteria. As a potent antioxidant, it further neutralizes harmful oxygen radicals. Consequently, acne marks are reduced, and the overall skin texture is refined.
Niacinamide is a vitamin B3 derivative closely related to vitamin B3 and a true multitasker in skincare. It regulates sebum production, clears pores of excess oil, and simultaneously protects them from future clogging. Its anti-inflammatory properties not only shield against acne-causing bacteria but also fend off free radicals and UV radiation. As a result, redness is reduced, acne marks are lightened, and the skin's natural protective barrier is strengthened.
In a study titled “Therapeutic Effects of Topical Tranexamic Acid [...]” the brightening properties of Tranexamic Acid were demonstrated. It appears that Tranexamic Acid has the capability to restore the skin's natural colour, effectively fading acne marks, pigmentation spots, and minor scars. It also reduces redness, calms the skin overall, and offers protection against the ongoing effects of UV radiation.
Der Power Komplex
In unserem Power Komplex vereinen wir hochwirksame, klassische und innovative Inhaltsstoffe, die jeweils einen bedeutenden Anteil an der besonderen Kraft unseres Serums einnehmen.
Zinc, when combined with PCA (Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid), is a key component of the skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). The NMF serves as the skin's natural hydration system, imparting it with resilience, elasticity, and moisture. Additionally, Zinc PCA can regulate sebum production, soothe skin irritations, and inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria.
Vitamin C with Gold Particles
As if the many outstanding properties of Vitamin C weren't enough on their own, we've also added a touch of real gold. This combination not only soothes the skin and acts as an anti-inflammatory, but it also serves as a natural preservative for the serum. Vitamin C balances skin discolourations to achieve a uniform skin tone.
The inclusion of gold particles prevents the Vitamin C from oxidizing, thereby maintaining its high efficacy. It penetrates cells rapidly and, when combined with the body's natural glutathione, offers highly effective protection against free radicals.
Another key ingredient in our Power Complex is Tocopherol, commonly known as vitamin E. This nutrient is so potent that it could easily have an entire article dedicated to it. At its core, Tocopherol's wound-healing effects help to diminish inflammation, acne, and minor skin cracks. It reduces acne marks and prevents the formation of scars.
Moreover, vitamin E safeguards the skin from cellular damage, promotes regeneration, and enhances skin moisture, thereby warding off dryness and irritation. Paired with vitamin C, it also acts as a natural preservative in our serum, ensuring the optimal efficacy of all ingredients.
The well-known natural ingredient Allantoin also earns a deserving spot in our Power Complex. Beyond its basic features, such as regulating sebum production and providing anti-irritant and sweat-reducing benefits, Allantoin packs a powerful punch.
Numerous studies have shown that this ingredient activates cell proliferation, thereby accelerating skin cell renewal and regeneration. This makes Allantoin excellently suited for wound healing as well as anti-ageing. Its unique ability to penetrate the multi-layered epidermis helps soften calluses and unclog pores, promoting sebum drainage. As a result, blemishes and blackheads are significantly reduced.
Dexpanthenol and Retinol
Dexpanthenol (Provitamin B5), which is converted into pantothenic acid in the body, is considered a little miracle worker in the cosmetics industry. It supports the skin's natural healing process, has anti-inflammatory properties, and repairs minor skin damage. Moreover, it hydrates the skin and helps combat premature aging, while also aiding in the refinement of acne scars. Retinol operates similarly but goes a step further by stimulating both metabolism and collagen regeneration.
Ferulic Acid is one of the most potent natural antioxidants found in nature, sourced from wheat, rice, or oats. It combats free radicals, repairs the skin, and minimizes minor imperfections. But its benefits go beyond that: Ferulic Acid also calms the skin, has anti-inflammatory properties, and stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis for a firmer, more youthful complexion.
Just like in movies where the biggest stars often appear at the end of the cast list, the same is true for Ectoin®. This powerful ingredient is extracted from extremophiles—microorganisms that thrive in extreme environments like salt lakes or hot geysers. Ectoin® serves to protect these organisms from harsh environmental conditions. Notably, it has anti-inflammatory, nourishing, and especially protective properties. Ectoin® stabilizes cell membranes, prevents the entry of allergens, and contains enzymes that help to minimize water loss. This makes it an exceptional addition to skincare for maintaining skin health and integrity.
All Nature Complex
To complete our potent blend of active ingredients, our scientists have selected three natural plant extracts that provide a comprehensive approach to acne treatment.
Beard Lichen Extract (Usnic Acid)
Cell renewal is generally a positive process, with hundreds of millions of new cells being produced in our bodies every day. However, sometimes uncontrolled cell proliferation can occur. Beard Lichen Extract helps to counteract this unwanted cell division, repair minor skin damage, and reduce blemishes through its antibacterial properties.
Willow Bark Extract
Contained in Willow Bark Extract is Salicin, which is converted into Salicylic Acid within the body. This acid serves multiple roles: it is anti-inflammatory, relieves pain, boosts metabolism, and simultaneously regulates sebum production. Secondary phytochemicals like Quercetin and Isoquercitrin amplify these anti-inflammatory benefits while also depriving skin bacteria, which contribute to acne, of their nutrient sources. Additionally, Willow Bark has a keratolytic effect, meaning it softens and sheds dead skin cells, thereby smoothing and unclogging pores.
Cucumber Fruit Extract
Cucumber Fruit Extract delivers intense hydration, fights free radicals, and promotes cell regeneration. The acids present in the extract actively combat acne and blackheads, while enzymatic reactions gently soften the skin and alleviate itching.
Blackheads: Quick Facts
The small black dot typical of blackheads is caused by the oxidation of sebum when it reacts with oxygen in the air. It's only when skin-dwelling bacteria come into play that blackheads may become inflamed and turn into pustules.
What are the symptoms of acne?
It all starts with a small, inconspicuous, red bump on the skin. Gradually, this bump becomes inflamed and swollen, eventually forming a pustule. More and more blackheads, pustules, and pus-filled pimples appear, primarily concentrating in the T-zone—forehead, chin, and nose. In rare instances, the cheeks may also be affected.
To sum it up briefly: These are the four main symptoms or causes of blemishes and acne.
To better explain the effectiveness of our serum, let's first recap the main effects, symptoms, or underlying causes of acne:
- Abnormal Skin Thickening (Hyperkeratosis)
- Excessive Sebum Production (Seborrhea)
- Bacterial Growth and Proliferation
Acne affects 90% of all teenagers. To combat pimples and blackheads, we've developed our specialized serum featuring three potent active complexes. Working in perfect synergy, they tackle all the root causes and symptoms of acne. The result is a significant reduction in blemishes, curtailed inflammation, and a smoother skin texture. Experience a radiant, fresh, and clear complexion that boosts your self-confidence.
