What makes our Antiac Range so effective?

In case anyone missed it, last year we got some pretty incredible news from the Good Housekeeping Institute . Our Antiac Face Wash was named one of the “Best Blemish Control Face Washes” on the market and came out top of the pile in the “Best for Acne” category! With 470 testers trying out 34 different brands, we were ecstatic to see that the Antiac Face Wash was awarded 85/100 – best of the bunch! In light of this, we wanted to take a second and put it in the spotlight, examining what it does and who it works for. The short answers there are “an awful lot” and “for a great many people,” but let’s dive a little deeper.

So, who is our Antiac Range for? Antiac is an effective remedy for anyone suffering from acne, blemishes, pimples or black and/or white heads. Acne and other such skin conditions are often caused by hormonal changes in the body, which cause the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce excessive sebum that is pushed to the surface through your hair follicles. This sebum mixes with dry skin cells on the surface, producing a thick grey-green sludge which then blocks the skins pores and traps further excess sebum beneath it. Sounds gross, we know, and it can get worse. If left untreated, that sebum build-up attracts bacterial growth, which can become infected and inflamed, resulting in the acne that so many people struggle with daily.

Our Antiac Range includes everyday products as well as more targeted treatments (which can also be used daily if required). Keep spots and acne at bay with the Daily Face Wash, which helps to balance oils in skin and replenish moisture, naturally. This will leave your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed, rather than dry and tight, which can happen when you use certain chemical treatments.

Our Antiac Activ products can be used to overcome a bad flare-up or to treat persistent, severe acne. Use the Activ Liquid Spray to give great coverage and soothing over a broader area, such as your cheeks and forehead and use the Activ Gel Serum to target spots fast when you see them and prevent them from getting worse. The Serum is best to get the maximum strength of treatment, targeted at a specific area.

So how does it work? The Antiac Range works on three separate areas that are vital for treating acne. The first is Bacterial Infection. Antiac incorporates a combination of highly effective anti-bacterial ingredients, including a bio-active substance called Skinwell DFA, which has been used in skincare products for its anti-microbial properties for many, many years! The Second area is Inflammation. This is alleviated through a variety of natural ingredients, such as Sea Buckthorn, Aloe Vera and Witch hazel, that work to soothe and calm the skin, significantly reducing the visible signs of acne. The final area that Antiac addresses is Blockages. Our Activ Range is especially effective here, penetrating deeply within the skin to cleanse pores and force that excess sebum that we mentioned earlier up and out of the skin, leaving it clear and free of debris.

We’re so proud of our Good Housekeeping results and to see that our products are working so well for so many people.
