This week Adigica Health announced the launch of BioClarity™, a new proprietary skincare regimen specifically formulated for the treatment of acne in teenagers and young adults.

The BioClarity™ regimen was formulated by research scientists to include salicylic acid, a proven treatment for acne, combined with natural ingredients including a patented and proprietary ingredient, Floralux™. Floralux™ is a naturally derived ingredient from chlorophyll (the green material in plants), that helps reduce the symptoms of acne and the side effects of acne medications, plus helps to restore the natural balance of the skin.

In a clinical trial of BioClarity™ in teenagers and young adults, patients used BioClarity™ for eight weeks. After the trial period, 90% of users reported a favorable reduction in the number of blemishes, while 87% saw an overall improvement in the appearance of their skin and 90% of participants said that they would recommend or strongly recommend BioClarity™ to other acne sufferers.

“We developed BioClarity™ based on our significant experience in skincare and the belief that we could develop an acne treatment regimen especially formulated for the skin of teenagers and young adults. We believe that the BioClarity™ regimen will be well accepted because it produces significant positive results,” said David Hale.

“We are very excited to offer BioClarity™ directly to millions of teenagers and young adults who suffer from acne, which can be both socially and physically challenging. We believe that our formulation of natural ingredients and proven acne fighting medication will make BioClarity™ the product of choice for acne treatment in this target patient group,” said Mr. Sliter. “I’m personally thrilled to launch a new ecommerce business in San Diego leveraging the incredible biotech, life science and e-commerce expertise in our city.”
