We are regularly asked about acne treatment products. Therefore, as a responsible cosmetics manufacturer, we ensure that customers are aware of two things.
Firstly, the definition of a cosmetic. This is any substance or mixture intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body. The purpose is cleaning, perfuming, changing appearance, and correcting body odours. Or protecting them or keeping them in good condition.”
Secondly, products intended for the cure, treatment, or prevention of skin conditions fall under the category of drugs or pharmaceuticals. In other words, these are treatment products, not cosmetics.
Therefore, brand owners are breaking the law by selling cosmetics with the promise they can cure or treat acne.
Acne treatment products. What is the best approach?
As a matter of fact, acne is one of the most common skin conditions. It is difficult to understand the causes. Dermatologists are unsure. However, it should not be ignored. If ignored, you risk scarring.
A holistic approach is best. Have a look at this guide: How to Get Rid of Acne – The Ultimate Guide.
