At Herbally Radiant we are receiving more and more customers with acne problem, searching right kind of skin-friendly gentle formulations. Aware of this trend nationwide, big players of cosmetic industry have hyped promotional efforts for their pharma-based products on the claims of “quick” or “guaranteed relief”. The global acne products market is estimated to reach $ 3.02 billion by next year.
Main acne factors are : oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores, bacteria and hormonal imbalance. Acne typically appears on face, neck, chest, back and shoulders that have most oil (sebaceous) glands. Acne occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells.
Hair follicles are connected to oil glands. These glands secrete an oily substance (sebum) to lubricate your hair and skin. Sebum normally travels along the hair shafts and through the openings of the hair follicles onto the surface of our skin. When body produces excess amount of sebum and dead skin cells, the two can build up in hair follicles, and form a soft plug, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. If the clogged pore becomes infected with bacteria, inflammation results.
The plugged pore may cause the follicle wall to bulge and produce a whitehead. Or the plug may be open to the surface and may darken, causing a blackhead. A blackhead may look like dirt stuck in pores. But actually the pore is congested with bacteria and oil, which turns brown when it's exposed to the air.
Pimples are raised red spots with a white center that develop when blocked hair follicles become inflamed or infected. Blockages and inflammation that develop deep inside hair follicles produce cyst-like lumps beneath the surface of your skin.
The R&D team of Herbally Radiant focused on the powerful natural ingredients that could help create the safest skin-friendly products that could provide long lasting relief. After testing with combinations of many ingredients, it launched one of its most popular range: CLEAN – Cleanser, Toner, Serum andScrub. Aloe vera based, CLEAN products contain witch hazel, cranberry extract, black willowbark, glycolic acid, billberry, activated charcoal, vegetable glycerin, orange-lemon extract, roman chamomile, rosemary, Pro-Vitamin B5, rooibos tree extract together with essential oils like tea tree, neem, jojoba and avocado.
The CLEAN formulations when applied regularly inhibit inflammation and bacterial proliferation, keeping skin comfortable all day long. The natural ingredients reduce irritation of benzoyl peroxide by increasing the efficacy of gentle additives that have wider compatibility.
The CLEAN serum is a powerful formulation that is 100% natural, pure and effective. This fast absorbing and non-greasy serum works as a booster to help support and treat the skin from within, delivering the highest potency of anti-oxidants and oils, thereby rejuvenating, hydrating and brightening the skin.
We also advise our customers to avoid drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium, extra sugar and sugary drinks and stay away from stressful situations. Most of the pharma-based cosmetics have parabens or other harsh chemicals that can provide only temporary relief. Natural ingredients therefore offer the best treatment in acne treatment.
