Combats Acne Eruption and Inflammation


Acne, commonly known as pimples, is a multi-factorial inflammatory disease. Skin cells, sebum and hair can clump together into a plug, which in turn gets infected with bacteria, resulting in swelling or inflammation. Several causes, including stress and pollution lead to the formation of acne.

Anti-acne actives provide a multi-prolonged approach by targeting different mechanisms like inhibition of
P. acnes, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity.

  • Monolaurin

    A glycerol ester of lauric acid, possessing broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against P acnes. In-house studies have indicated that Monolaurin has a MIC of 40 µg/ml (i.e. 0.004%) as such against P. acnes.

    • Antimicrobial activity (In vitro study)
  • Coleus Oil

    A patented and standardized skin nutrient, obtained from the fresh roots of Coleus forskohlii. Coleus oil has been found to be better than Tea tree oil in its antimicrobial potential.

    • Antimicrobial activity (In vitro study)
  • Vitex Oil

    Obtained from the berries of Vitex agnus-castus and standardized for 0.40% of Artemetin, it helps control acne. Vitex oil inhibits P. acnes more effectively than Clindamycin.

    • Antimicrobial activity (In vitro study)
  • Policosanol

    A mixture of fatty alcohols, derived from waxy extract of sugarcane, contains a minimum of 60% Octacosanol. Clinically found to decrease the sebum secretion in a concentration dependent manner.

    • Reduction of sebum secretion (Clinical study)
    • Antimicrobial activity (In vitro study)
