NeoStrata is a well-known name in the skincare business. Ever since the founders, doctors Yu and Van Scott, discovered that alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) had many skincare benefits, they have been making major advancements in the skincare industry. They have now developed a line of NeoStrata acne treatment products, including the NeoCeuticals Acne Regimen Kit.
This NeoStrata acne treatment kit consists of four different products. They each are specially formulated to achieve different results.
NeoCeuticals Antibacterial Facial Cleanser:
This NeoStrata acne treatment facial cleanser contains an ingredient called triclosan. Triclosan is known for its antibacterial properties. Therefore, NeoCeuticals Antibacterial Facial Cleanser is capable of removing bacteria, lowering the risk of more acne outbreaks.
NeoCeuticals Oil Control Gel:
Too much oil can often lead to bigger pores and acne outbreaks. This NeoStrata acne gel is formulated to reduce that oil. NeoCeuticals Oil Control Gel also contains both AHAs and PHAs in the form of mandelic acid and gluconolactone. That combination is meant to give the gel more power to remove dead skin cells, exfoliating the skin.
NeoCeuticals Acne Spot Treatment Gel:
The next component in the NeoStrata acne treatment kit is the NeoCeuticals Acne Spot Treatment Gel. It contains 2% salicylic acid content, along with pro-retinol and a multi-hydroxy acid complex. It is meant to be used only on certain spots, including whiteheads, blackheads, and other blemishes. It penetrates deep into the pores, cleaning out debris and healing those blemishes.
NeoCeuticals Skin Brightening Gel:
The fourth component in the NeoStrata acne treatment kit is the NeoCeuticals Skin Brightening Gel. It contains both alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and polyhydroxy acids (PHAs). It also contains vitamin C, which is a natural skin brightener and exfoliant.
This NeoStrata acne treatment kit also contains several other ingredients, including:
ñ Ammonium Chloride
ñ Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
ñ Propylene Glycol
The acne treatment kit from NeoStrata is designed to be used on a regular basis by people who suffer from acne, rosacea, and other frequent skin breakouts. Although each component has different requirements and instructions. For example, the skin brightening gel is meant to be used twice daily.
Although most PHAs are fairly gentle on the skin, most AHAs are meant to be stronger and more abrasive. This NeoStrata acne treatment kit contains both PHAs and AHAs, which means that it would be best to consult a doctor or dermatologist before using the kit. Even then, it is best to start using the products slowly and see if any irritations or rashes develop.
