Acne Treatment – Can You Eliminate Acne At The Source?
How do you eliminate acne at the source?
There are basically two types of acne treatments available, Benzoyl Peroxide(BPO) and Salicylic Acid. BPO, the main ingredient in most acne treatments is one of the most effective treatments for acne. While highly effective, this traditional form can cause skin irritation and must rely on the benzoyl peroxide to soak in through the skin to treat your acne. This process can take days to start actively attacking the acne bacteria. Topical salicylic acid treats acne by reducing swelling and redness and unplugging blocked skin pores to allow pimples to shrink, but does not kill acne causing bacteria.
Typical BPO acne treatment particles are larger than the pore itself thus remaining on the surface of the skin. The pores of your skin are approximately 10 micron in size, most acne treatments contain BPO that is 30 -40 micron in size. This is like trying to shove a basketball into the hole of a baseball, it does not work. The difference in particle size prevents the product from entering the skin pore and must rely on it to soak through the skin to be effective.
New technology has developed a BPO raw material gel that is less than 10 micron in size and eliminates or reduces skin irritation completely. Now we have a product that allows us to put a golf ball in the hole of a baseball.
Acne can now be eliminated at the source. The oxidation process that occurs when the new product comes in contact with the acne bacteria starts to kill and eliminate the bacteria on contact. The product does not remain on your skin thereby eliminating any chance of skin irritation.
This new raw material is an exciting time for the acne industry. As we look forward to the applications with this new product, one can envision an acne treatment with 5% BPO that is more effective than a treatment with 10% BPO. We could also see the elimination of deep cleansers required before the application of a treatment. We can see a whole new world for the treatment of acne.
