THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT…
OVERALL CLINICAL DATA ON SPECIFIC INGREDIENT(S) & HOW THEY FUNCTION:
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States.1 The pathogenesis of acne, a skin disorder of the sebaceous follicles, is complex and the cause varies by individual. The main factors include hyperkeratinization in which keratin protein builds up in the lining of the follicle blocking the sloughing off of dead skin cells thus blocking the oil duct, hyperseborrhea or excess sebum production from the sebaceous gland, and hyperproliferation of p. Acnes bacteria 2. There are other contributors such as alterations of the sebaceous lipid profile, skin irritation, stress, use of comedogenic cosmetic products, and activity of androgen hormones. Acne is therefore not unique or exclusive to adolescents or young adults and can continue into one’s 30’s and 40’s3. The prevalence of adult acne is actually increasing annually. Individuals can struggle with blackheads, comedones, or blemishes while simultaneously having skin concerns such as dryness or aging.
Since acne is considered a skin disease, skincare products targeting acne are considered drug products and not just cosmetics because they are intended “for the use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease” and affect the structure and function of the skin. The Naturium acne line was developed to not only clear blemishes and help prevent new breakouts, but provide an elevated experience compared to the traditional acne products on the market that can be overly drying, cause irritation, and feel outdated. Meet our 4 game-changing products.
