FORT LEE, N.J., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Herborium Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HBRM) –Over 60 million people in the U.S. have acne, and contrary to popular belief, it's not a condition that only affects teenagers: In fact, the average age of people with acne is 26.5 – which is five years older than the average age was just a decade ago. Acne is a skin condition, but it also leaves psychological scars. It is commonly treated with topical agents and antibiotics, both of which can result in serious side effects. Now people fighting acne have a new weapon in their arsenal: Herborium Group, Inc., a small publicly traded Botanical Therapeutics® company, offers all botanical ingredients-based, clinically tested AcnEase® tablets that have achieved up to a 95% response rate in the treatment of acne and in improving symptoms associated with rosacea, such as facial flushing, heat sensitivity or gritty eyes.
The proprietary formula, which is safe and causes no side effects, was developed specifically to treat the underlying causes of acne and works for adolescent and adult acne sufferers – both women and men – with a variety of acne types, including androgen-related, cystic and hormonal acne. AcnEase® treats current outbreaks and prevents new acne from forming with a holistic, effective approach to skin health. It works for all complexion types and colors and does not discolor or irritate the skin. There are no contraindications or restrictions on sunlight exposure for AcnEase® as there are for many traditional acne treatments. Benefits include:
- Affordable, effective treatment for acute and chronic acne.
- Treatment that is safe and all natural (botanical) and can be used on a long-term basis.
- Prevention of acne scar formation.
- Pain relief and elimination of the need for surgery or steroid injections.
- Convenient vitamin-like small tablets suitable for all ages, skin tones and types of acne for both women and men.
- Relief for rosacea-related facial flushing due to dilated blood vessels.
- Elimination of skin sensitivity and outbreaks due to rosacea.
- Alleviation of eye irritation and gastric reflux symptoms secondary to rosacea.
The acne treatments currently on the market don't prevent new acne from forming, focusing solely on symptoms. Antibacterial therapy can result in resistant strains of bacteria, and topical treatments can irritate and discolor the skin. Oral contraceptives taken to treat acne can have contraindications and side effects, and they aren't an option for the growing number of men suffering from acne. The only other systemic acne treatment – Accutane – has been withdrawn from the market due to severe side effects. (Generic forms of Accutane – isotretinoin – are still unfortunately on the market and can cause the same very serious adverse side effects.) AcnEase® eliminates these drawbacks.
"AcnEase® is effective because it treats the causes of acne, not just the symptoms," said Dr. Agnes P. Olszewski, CEO and Chairwoman for Herborium Group. "A primary cause of acne is an overproduction of sebum (skin oil) by sebaceous glands, which blocks the pores and provides a fertile ground for bacteria to develop, leading to localized inflammation and consequently scarring – it's a vicious cycle. AcnEase® breaks the cycle, using a proprietary herbal compound to restore balance and skin health. It works for people who suffer from acne of any type at any age, regardless of skin color and complexion."
AcnEase® has been clinically tested and proven effective. But for Dr. Olszewski, the most touching proof points are the emails and letters the company receives from users who tell the Herborium team that AcnEase® has changed their lives. People who lived in fear of breakouts, reluctant to attend special occasions or even leave their homes because of their dissatisfaction with their appearance, have written to tell the Herborium team that after trying every remedy on the market without success, they've finally found the solution they were looking for in AcnEase® and that they have never looked or felt better.
Herborium's unique Botanical Therapeutics® blend Eastern and Western medical traditions to provide the benefits of both. Shaped by the Western emphasis on science, testing and metrics to ensure safety and effectiveness and influenced by the holistic wellness focus predominant in Eastern traditions, Herborium's Botanical Therapeutics® – including AcnEase® – offer new hope to patients with unmet treatment needs.
The company is currently developing other Botanical Therapeutics® that will address sexual health issues in men and women, energy and stress problems, symptoms of BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) and other health concerns.
