(PRWEB) August 1, 2005
A proprietary nutritional supplement (patent pending) consisting of seven vitamins and minerals and one herb demonstrated surprisingly good results in a clinical trial for non-cystic acne. The study data was presented as a scientific poster (P8) at the American Academy of Dermatology's Summer meeting (Academy '05) July 20-24, this year.
For the study, a group of patients from a dermatologist's office were chosen at random to enroll in the study which required that the patients use the nutritional supplement only - no other acne-fighting medications, cleansers or procedures were allowed. After just 30 days there was an approximately 50% reduction in noncystic acne lesions. The patients also preferred the supplement several-fold compared to any previous treatment they had tried.
The supplement is marketed under the name Accunatural(TM) by Skinutrients, LLC, a Florida company founded by a practicing dermatologist to develop natural solutions to skin problems using sound scientific principles.
Accunatural is completely free of any antibiotic-type side effects normally encountered during conventional acne treatment such as photosensitivity, GI upset, yeast infections, and development of resistant bacteria. In addition, the non-antibiotic approach of Accunatural eliminates the possibility of transfer of bacterial resistance from Proprionobacterium acnes to more serious pathogens such as MRSA, a dangerous bacteria occuring in many communities now due to the overuse of antibiotics.
