A highly effective acne cream, formulated with GM–1, that helps to reduce inflammation and infection of the Sebaceous glands, the main cause of acne. It also repairs the skin and tightens the pores without leaving any blemishes. Your skin looks younger and smoother.
GM-1 is a natural substance isolated from the fruit hull of the mangosteen. Over ten years of extensive research has shown that GM-1 possesses the following “4 A” properties:
- Antibacterial – GM–1 inhibits the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, both normal and antibiotic-resistant strains. The minimal inhibitory concentration to S. aureus is 0.98 microgram/ milliliter; GM–1 was found to effectively kill the bacteria.
- Anti–inflammatory – GM-1 exhibits anti-inflammatory activity three times that of aspirin in all experimental models. The anti-inflammatory activity was found to be caused by the inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis, interaction with some mediators, interference with leukocytic mobilization as well as with connective tissue proliferation.
- Anti–oxidant – GM–1 is a good antioxidant. In a comparative study, GM–1 exhibited activity equivalent to Vitamin E.
- Astringent – GM–1, when incorporated into a cream, exhibits astringent properties. It helps heal open wounds and shrinks the pores on facial skin, leaving skin feeling smoother.
