Clearogen Acne Research
Aside from FDA-approved acne medications Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid and Sulfur, which are used to clear the existing acne, Clearogen contains natural anti-DHT ingredients that address the root cause of acne on the initial hormonal level. Dirt, makeup, and other factors only come into play if your glands are producing excessive DHT. Therefore, by stopping DHT, you eliminate the excessive oiliness that leads to acne in the first place. Clearogen is the first over-the- counter, fully FDA-approved product, for treating acne where it starts.
Natural Anti-DHT Ingredients
The natural anti-DHT ingredients in Clearogen® include botanical compounds that have undergone independent scientific studies, proving their ability to inhibit 5-Alpha-Reductase (to reduce DHT production) and block the androgen receptors (to reduce stimulation of the oil glands by DHT). The main natural ingredients include Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic acid (ALA), Linoleic Acid, Oleic Acid and Saw Palmetto Extract. Clearogen® is the only product on the market that contains these ingredients in one easy-to-use topical formula.
GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid & Oleic Acid
Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), Linoleic and Oleic Acid are essential fatty acids found in plant oils. These fatty acids have been individually proven to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase. In fact, these are the most powerful inhibitors of 5-Alpha Reductase known today, and not only do they inhibit the Type II form of the 5-Alpha Reductase, but also the Type I form of the enzyme, which is present in high concentrations in the sebaceous glands and skin. Additionally, GLA, ALA and Oleic Acid have potent anti-inflammatory properties. While other acne solutions may work for short term breakouts, Clearogen has figured out the formula to treat acne, long term. Clear up your skin, and then stop future breakouts before they start, with Clearogen’s simple total acne control system.
Saw Palmetto Extract
Saw palmetto has been extensively studied over the past several years for the treatment of enlarged prostate in men ( BPH ). Saw Palmetto extract which is a known anti-androgen is the liposerolic extract of the fruit of Saw Palmetto.
Saw Palmetto has shown to effectively block DHT and is also believed to block the androgen receptors which are found on the sebaceous glands.
