Act Pure

High-impact treatment for acne-prone skins

Aim of the Study

The study evaluated the activity of ACT PURE cream in reducing the redness and size of blackheads, the skin tolerability and pleasantness use. The test was conducted by a dermatologist.

Subjects of the Study

The study was conducted on 20 volunteers aged between 18 and 30 years old with skin affected by acne blemishes and having applied the product once or twice a day for 7 days.

Study Duration

During this period (7 days) some specific instrumental and clinical parameters were tested: evaluation of skin sebum, variation of the redness and the size of comedones. Furthermore, any alterations of the skin such as erythema and edema were recorded.

Monitoring Parameters

SEBUM MEASUREMENT
Sebum measurements were made on the treated area with the use of Sebumeter® MS 815. A microprocessor calculates the result and shows it on the display, in units according to a 0-350 scale. The measurements were performed at the time [t0] (baseline) and after the use of the product at the time [t3] (three days) and [t7] (7 days).

CLINICAL PARAMETERS
The dermatologist has evaluated the variation of the redness and the size of comedones at the time [t0], [t3] and [t7] days. Moreover clinical assessments affecting  skin alterations (erythema and edema) were collected.

SUBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT (self-assessment)
After using the product at times [t3] and [t7] days, a series of subjective evaluations were collected.
