Health Notes

Acne Vulgaris

Acne Vulgaris
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by some in the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

SupplementAmountWhy
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Apply 4% gel twice per day3 stars[3 stars]
In a double-blind trial, applying a topical 4% niacinamide gel twice daily for two months significantly improved acne.
Tea Tree
Apply 5% oil twice per day3 stars[3 stars]
Although tea tree oil is slower and less potent than benzoyl peroxide, it has been shown to improve acne with far fewer side effects.
Zinc
60 to 90 mg daily3 stars[3 stars]
Several double-blind trials indicate that taking zinc reduces acne severity. Long-term use requires 1 to 2 mg of copper per day to prevent copper deficiency.
Guggul
500 mg extract twice per day2 stars[2 stars]
A controlled trial found that guggul (Commiphora mukul) compared favorably to tetracycline in treating cystic acne.
Burdock
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Tonic herbs such as burdock are believed to have a cleansing action when taken internally and have been used historically to treat skin conditions.
Pantothenic Acid
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
In a preliminary trial, taking panthothenic acid supplements and applying a topical cream improved moderate acne in two months and severe acne within six months.
Vitamin A
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Under medical supervision, large quantities of vitamin A have been used successfully to treat severe acne. However, the acne typically returns after treatment is discontinued.
Vitamin B6
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
While not proven in research, some reports suggest that it may alleviate adolescent and premenstrual acne, however, another report has suggested that it might make acne worse.
Vitex

(Premenstruation)
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Some older, preliminary research suggests that vitex might help clear premenstrual acne, possibly by regulating hormonal influences.

About This Condition

Acne vulgaris, also known as common acne, is an inflammatory condition of the sebaceous glands of the skin. It consists of red, elevated areas on the skin that may develop into pustules and even further into cysts that can cause scarring.

Acne vulgaris occurs mostly on the face, neck, and back of most commonly teenagers and to a lesser extent of young adults. The condition results in part from excessive stimulation of the skin by androgens (male hormones). Bacterial infection of the skin also appears to play a role.

    Comments about GRANDPA BRANDS 1010469 Grandpa Brand Thylox® Acne Treatment Soap:

    I use the product as directed on the box and it has worked wonders for my acne prone skin! My skin is pretty oily so the drying effect of sulfer has not bothered my skin but actually made it less oily! The smell is easy to get used to, it's not terrible and doesn't linger on your skin.

        I have tried every acne treatment out there. This is the best yet. Who thought a bar of soap would do the trick. Works great on back and chest acne too. Not drying, no film or residue left on skin, no harsh chemicals and cost effective.

            Accidenly left on for longer than box said on 2nd use bout 1/2hr it didnt harm my face it actually worked faster I could just feel it working. I have told a few people about it and even my son says that my acne is gone giving me a "high five". I love this soap. Now that I know how to keep the acne away from my 40yr old face now all I need is something for the marks that they leave behind. THANKS GRANDPA

                  My teen has used prescription sulphur cleansers to treat facial and upper body acne. I found this product at my local GNC store and decided that for a fraction of the cost of the prescription solutions, it was worth a try. Within several weeks of my teen using this once a day with no other acne treatments, the acne was 75 percent gone. It has become a must-have product!
