Spot, Spot Go Away!

Concentrated spot treatments are a must for fighting acne. To rapidly kill bacteria, reduce dead skin cell buildup and inflammation associated with acne they should contain high concentrations of powerful ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, calendula, aloe, horse chestnut and beta glucan.

Benzoyl peroxide is FDA approved to treat acne as it addresses each of the main causes. Benzoyl peroxide is an antiseptic, which prevents and treats acne by reducing the amount of bacteria on and in the skin. Once applied, benzoyl peroxide breaks down into benzoic acid and oxygen. Benzoic acid reduces fatty acids and releases oxygen, which kills the acne-causing bacteria. (Bacteria cannot live in an oxygen rich environment.) Benzoic acid is an astringent, which means that benzoyl peroxide constricts and reduces irritation and blood secretions common with acne. Benzoyl peroxide also breaks down dead skin cells (keratolysis) and increases cell turnover (the rate that dead skin cells are sloughed off the skin’s surface). This lowers the likelihood of clogged pores, which lead to more acne. Pevonia uses naturally sourced benzoyl peroxide from benzoic acid from fruits versus synthetically sourced benzoyl peroxide that is common in most acne products. Consequently, people who may experience redness or irritation with other acne remedies will not have that experience with Pevonia.

Salicylic acid, also FDA approved to treat acne, is the best acid to treat acne, as it is the only acid that can penetrate deep into the pore to banish excess oil, exfoliate dead skin, and kill the bacteria that cause acne. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that also lightens and reduces scarring. Pevonia uses naturally sourced salicylic acid from willow bark, wintergreen, and sweet birch leaves and special delivery systems, which makes it far more effective and skin friendly than synthetic versions, which can cause redness or irritation.

Calendula and aloe calm, soothe, heal and reduce the inflammation associated with acne. Aloe is also antimicrobial which helps fight acne-causing bacteria. Aloe vera contains amino acids and potassium that heal, polysaccharides that hydrate, salicylic acid that exfoliates, sterols that reduce inflammation and Vitamins C and E, which combat free radicals and stimulate collagen and nourish, respectively. Aloe vera also contains iron, which facilitates better oxygen usage, which p. acnes bacteria dislike.

Horse chestnut soothes and diffuses redness seen with acne by reducing capillary dilation (vasoconstricts). Note: Horse chestnut is from horse chestnut trees in northern Europe and is not a true nut.

Beta glucan controls bacterial growth and soothes the inflammation associated with acne. It is a natural gum polysaccharide, which makes it a humectant as well. Pevonia uses betaglucan from organic aspergillus yeast, which helps skin immunity and also functions as an antioxidant.

Pevonia’s Spot Treatment contains all of these ingredients, which when applied directly to a blemish when it first appears, will rapidly heal and soothe breakouts.

It is important to apply an SPF of 30 or more daily when using acne-fighting products, which can make the skin more susceptible to the suns damaging rays.
