In recent years research elucidated the role of excessive inflammation in acne development leading to deeper lesions and scarring. While many triggers such as bacterial activity, lipid oxidation, and DNA damage initiate inflammation, controlling them is just not enough. Inflammation enhances itself in a vicious cycle due to secondary damages leading to pro-inflammatory balance.
Z-Care™ is a new botanical solution aimed not only at the inflammatory triggers but at inflammation itself to stop the cycle and support prevention of deeper lesions and scars. The blend has its roots in the ancient traditions of China, through a unique collaboration with traditional Chinese medicine experts, while being backed up by modern scientific standards. Its composing extracts are purified by affinity chromatography in order to ensure active ingredients content and lower unwanted residues.
The efficacy of Z-Care™ was established in-vitro and in clinical studies demonstrating
Z-Care™ safety was demonstrated in Repeated Insult Patch test and in-vitro eye irritation model as well as in the clinical tests themselves.
The blend is a yellow liquid solution.
Recommended doses are 5% for anti-inflammatory and acne spot treatment support, 2% for sebum regulation, and 1 to 2% for skin and lesion maintenance.
