AcnEase® Tablets From Herborium Allow Users To Experience Life Without Acne

By jacquelineluxe • April 9, 2014

Over 60 million people in the U.S. have acne, and contrary to popular belief, it's not a condition that only affects teenagers: In fact, the average age of people with acne is 26.5 (5 more than just a decade ago!). Acne is a skin condition, but it leaves psychological scars. It is commonly treated with topical agents and antibiotics, both of which can result is serious side effects. Now people fighting acne have a new weapon in their arsenal: Herborium Group, Inc., a publicly traded Botanical Therapeutics® company, offers all-botanical ingredients based, clinically tested AcnEase® tablets that have achieved up to a 96% response rate in the treatment of acne and improving symptoms of Rosacea.

The proprietary formula, which is safe and causes no side effects, was developed specifically to treat the underlying causes of acne and works for adolescent and adult acne sufferers (women and man a like) with a variety of acne types, including androgen-related, cystic and hormonal acne. AcnEase® treats current outbreaks and prevents new acne from forming with a holistic, effective approach to skin health. It works for all complexion types and colors and does not discolor or irritate the skin. There are no contraindications or restrictions on sunlight exposure for AcnEase® as there are for many traditional acne treatments. Benefits include:

  • Affordable, effective treatment for acute and chronic acne. 
  • Treatment that is safe and all natural (botanical) and can be used on a long-term basis.
  • Prevention of acne scar formation. 
  • Pain relief and elimination of the need for surgery or steroid injections. 
  • Convenient vitamin-like small tablets suitable and for all ages, skin tones and types of acne for both women and men. 
  • Elimination of skin sensitivity and outbreaks due to rosacea.

The acne treatments currently on the market don't prevent new acne from forming, focusing solely on symptoms. Antibacterial therapy can result in resistant strains of bacteria, and topical treatments can irritate and discolor the skin. Oral contraceptives taken to treat acne can have contraindications and side effects and are obviously not suitable for growing number of men suffering from acne, and the only other systemic acne treatments –Accutane has been withdrawn from the market due to severe side effects. (Generic forms of Accutane- Isotretinoin are still unfortunately on the market and can cause the same very serious adverse side effects). AcnEase® eliminates drawbacks.

"AcnEase® is effective because it treats the causes of acne, not just the symptoms," said Dr. Agnes P. Olszewski, CEO and Chairwoman for Herborium Group. "A primary cause of acne is an overproduction of sebum (skin oil) by sebaceous glands, which blocks the pores and provide a fertile ground for bacteria to develop, leading to localized inflammation and consequently scarring – it's a vicious cycle. AcnEase® breaks the cycle, using a proprietary herbal compound to restore balance and skin health. It works for people who suffer from acne of any type at any age, regardless of skin color and complexion."

AcnEase® has been clinically tested and proven effective. But for Dr. Olszewski, the most touching proof points are the emails and letters the company receives from users who tell the Herborium team that AcnEase® has changed their lives. People who lived in shadow of breakouts and in a fear to show their faces and bodies at any special occasions, those who were reluctant to leave their homes because of their dissatisfaction with their appearance have written to tell the Herborium team that after trying every remedy on the market without success, they've finally found the solution they were looking for in AcnEase® and that they have never looked or felt better.

Herborium's unique products (Botanical Therapeutics®) blend Eastern and Western medical traditions to provide the benefits of both. Shaped by the Western emphasis on science, testing and metrics to ensure safety and effectiveness and influenced by the holistic wellness focus predominant in Eastern traditions, Herborium's Botanical Therapeutics® – including AcnEase® – offer new hope to patients with unmet treatment needs.

The company is currently developing other Botanical Therapeutics® that will address sexual health issues in men and women, energy and stress problems, symptoms of BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) and other health concerns.

JustNeem, Inc., a provider of natural body and skin care products made with Neem, announce the distribution of their best-selling Neem Clay Mask to 78 Whole Foods Markets in the Pacific Northwest, Mid-Atlantic, North Atlantic, and Southeast regions. This comes after an exceptional year for the company.

On February 22, 2013, JustNeem's Neem Clay Mask appeared on the Dr. Oz Show as an example of the medicinal uses and benefits of the Neem tree in skin care. "Within minutes of the show airing, our web sales went off the charts," says Marketing Manager Leslie Huffman. COO Magda Radtke adds, "We significantly increased the production for all our products, but in particular for the Neem Clay Face Mask and Neem Tub Tea that both appeared on the show."

Once this increase in production capacity was met, the company was able to prepare for nationwide distribution. The Neem Clay Mask had been sold at Whole Foods Markets in the Southeast region only, but due to the demand for products made with Neem, the Neem Clay Mask will now be displayed in 69 additional Whole Foods stores across the country, spas and retail shops and on the company website.

Radtke continues, "Having the support from a company like Whole Foods Market is reassuring that we are making highly desirable products that are not only requested by consumers but also loved for their medicinal effects for skin care issues. We have enjoyed our relationship with Whole Foods Market. From our beginnings they have been very supportive of what we do, our products and our mission in Africa."

Editor's Pick Of The Week: DOCTOR BABOR DERMA CELLULAR Ultimate AHA Skin Peel Kit

By jacquelineluxe • March 21, 2014

Restore your skin’s natural, flawless glow with BABOR’s latest innovation - DOCTOR BABOR DERMA CELLULAR Ultimate AHA Skin Peel Kit. Inspired by medical grade peeling treatments, the BABOR Research and Innovation Centre has developed a home kit to peel the skin in six sequences with a course of highly effective fruit acid treatments.

The Science of AHA

Fruit acids – alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs – cause the skin to shed its uppermost, dead skin cells faster. In the process, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, lightening age spots, refining the pores, and stimulating the regrowth of new skin cells. During an intensive course of peeling treatments, the skin’s natural renewal and regeneration processes are accelerated, making the skin especially receptive to active ingredients.

The effects of fruit acids vary by concentration and pH. The higher the pH - the gentler the peel. Taking this science into consideration, BABOR has developed an ideally calibrated combination with superior results.

21 Days to Glowing Skin

During the first week of treatment, the Step 1 peel is used with 10 percent AHA and a low pH of 3.5, it dissolves coarse, dead skin cells in the upper layers of the skin. During the second week, Step 2 of the peel takes the acid content down to 7.5 percent while raising the pH to 4, for a gentler effect on deeper layers of the skin. Week three is the refining stage with a low acid content of 5 percent and a relatively high pH of 4.5. Step 3 gently peels the skin while supporting collagen production and intensively moisturizing the cells of the dermis and epidermis.

After each peeling treatment, The Ultimate Regenerating Serum – with a pH of 6 – works to effectively neutralize the acid while enhances the skin’s own ability to regenerate. In just 21 days, the peeling kit reveals refined, new skin.

(Retails at $225).

Come Out Of Winter Hibernation With At Home Indulgences

By jacquelineluxe • March 12, 2014

There’s still a month of winter left before spring, the season that makes us wake up earlier, take longer walks, and simply smell the flowers. Don’t be upset about how much longer we have until the sunnier months are upon us, take this time to indulge yourself in some at home treatments that will make you feel simply rejuvenated and ready for a new season.

The winter months are harsh on everyone’s skin. There are many do-it-yourself facial recipes available online that will make your face feel as smooth as a professional treatment. Try grinding up some oatmeal, add a splash of milk or spoonful of yogurt, and lather onto the face and let sit for 15 minutes. When you wash it off you’ll feel your face silky smooth.

Dry and dead skin just builds and sits on the body if we don’t regularly exfoliate. Mix in a large bowl sugar and honey or olive oil and scrub your entire body with it. Don’t forget to use that scrub on your lips and if you want to use it on the face, do a small patch test first to make sure your skin won’t react harshly. Winter months dried out your hair as well? Try a milk and honey hair mask at home, let it sit under a shower cap for 25 minutes and shampoo off. Hair will feel nourished and bouncy.

Many brands offer at-home spa kits, head to your favorite cosmetic counter or store and see what they have to offer. Light a scented candle, play your favorite music and get ready for a night of rejuvenation.
