Complementing your anti-acne regimen, Aknicare Combi targets the acne causing factors from inside out. The synergistic combination of Epigallocatechin gallate and Zinc gluconate targets the pathogenesis of acne and counteracts the effect of IGF-1 (Insuline-Similar Growth Factor). Bolstered with niacin, to improve overall skin health and skin barrier function to prevent bacterial activity on the skin.
Findings have shown that excessive IGF-1, a protein hormone produced by the liver, can multiply cells that can cause hyperkeratinisation (excessive dead skin cells) and excess sebum production. These are two key acne causing factors.
The role of IGF-1 in the pathogenesis of acne
What is it?
IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor) is a protein hormone
produced by the liver in correlation with the levels of GH (Growth Hormone).
By what is it induced?
The synthesis of IGF-1 is also promoted by the consumption of
food with a high glycemic charge (pasta, etc...), milk and derivates (Western diet).
How does it act?
IGF-1 links with its receptor (IGF-1R), expressed at the level of
keratinocytes and sebocytes, stimulating their proliferation.
This contributes to the development of Hyperkeratinization, Seborrhea, bacterial activity and inflammation.
Hence, to reduce acne (pimples), we need to counteract IGF-1 and its effects.
Functional molecules of proven efficacy.
