acne.org Cleanser, Jojoba Oil and Moisturizer

acne-org

The owner of the site acne.org, Daniel Kern has created an acne treatment regime that is cheap and simple. It looks to me like these products are so far totally unknown to rosacea sufferers and I’m quietly hopeful that rosacea sufferers might actually love 3 of the acne.org custom products.

acne.org is a large online community of acne suffers that includes a small area for rosacea sufferers. The site is run mostly by volunteers and doesn’t accept any advertising. This in itself is something uncommon, a large internet site that isn’t owned by a commercial interest that doesn’t accept advertising. The site tells us that it uses the sales of their custom products to help pay for the running of the site.

The acne.org Regime

The regime has been developed by Mr. Kern as he was unhappy with the formulation, availability and cost of commercially available regimes for acne. Certainly the products that have been developed are generously sized and very cheap.

I applaud Mr. Kern and acne.org for developing their own treatment regime. Well done!

The acne.org regime consists of a Cleanser, a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide based Treatment Gel, Moisturizer with Licochalcone, Jojoba Oil and also a 10% Glycolic Acid based AHA+ product.

Even though the regime includes a benzoyl peroxide gel and a Glycolic Acid product, I thought that 3 other components; the cleanser, moisturizer and jojoba oil were worth highlighting.

If you are looking for a  cheap and simple cleansing and moisturizing regime, with a very short list of ingredients, then read on.

Acne.org Cleanser

Cleanser-8-2T

Here is their description of the cleanser: “Liquid cleansers are less drying and can more easily achieve pH balance. However, liquid cleansers never lathered enough for me. I like a nice lather with my cleanser. So I asked several manufacturers for the impossible–a pH neutral liquid cleanser that lathers well. After trying 11 or 12 samples, the winning manufacturer came through with a carefully combined ingredient list which achieved an exact pH of 5.5. Since the pH of human skin is about 5.5, the result is a cleanser that leaves the skin in an even harmony without over drying or stripping the skin. And it lathers well! I was thrilled. I also made sure there were no perfumes or dyes. If you’re looking for a colored or scented cleanser, this is not the one for you. Instead, it is as simple as possible–a neutral pH, a nice substantial feeling in the palm, a gratifying lather, and a clean rinse.”

Cleanser Ingredients

Water, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, PEG-150 Distearate, Sodium Laureth 13 Carboxylate, Disodium Cocamphodiacetate, Butylene Glycol, Sage Extract, Cucumber Extract, White Oak Bark Extract, Panthenol, Allantoin, Acrylates Copolymer, Methylgluceth-20, Polysorbate-20, Quaternium-15, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA.

Acne.org Moisturizer

Moisturizer-8-2T

The acne.org moisturizer contains Licochalcone, the same active ingredient promoted by the Eucerin Redness Relief range who claim that their products are proven to provide redness relief.

“Generously sized moisturizer with licochalcone. Also contains jojoba oil. Intensely hydrating, non-comedogenic lotion designed to eliminate dry, flaky skin. Goes on clear and absorbs quickly, leaving no residue. Super light feel, fragrance free and dye free.”

Moisturizer Ingredients

Water, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Methyl Gluceth-20, Squalane, Saccharide Isomerate, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Olivate, PEG-12 Glyceryl Distearate, PEG-23 Glyceryl Distearate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

Great to see Jojoba Oil being used here and the use of Licochalcone is also interesting.

Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Jojoba-8-2T

Great to see that our fellow skin sufferees (is that a word?) also love jojoba oil. For very dry skin this is great. Apply a few drops to your palms and gently rub into very wet skin. The oil absorbs really easily allowing you to further apply a moisturizer if required. I used to use vita oil when my skin was really dry and would recommend it to kick start your regime.

“Generously sized 8 oz. certified organic jojoba oil. I recommend people try a few drops of jojoba oil in whichever moisturizer they are currently using. It will not clog pores at all. Quite the contrary, it makes my skin look great and keeps my skin’s oil balanced. “

Jojoba Oil Ingredients

Jojoba Oil (100% Organic)

Love To Hear From You!

I was excited to find that such a simple, elegant and inexpensive cleanser and moisturizer was easily available.

I’m quietly hopeful that these products might also become popular with rosacea sufferers. It would be a great result if rosacea sufferers were able to find here a gentler, simpler and cheaper regime that they thought possible.

Please let us know if you decide to give them a try.

    Heat triggers my rosacea, whether it’s outside or inside. Orcea medicaine also contributes to me being sun sensitive. Any advice how to manage activity in the heat, whether inside or outside?

  2. Carrie McGrath says:

    Thanks for the article. I know lots of folks with acne have had success with “The Regimen”. Its worth looking at whether or not any elements may be applicable to Rosacea. I had a friend at work who urged me to try “The Regimen”, but I knew that ingredients like Benzoyl Peroxide were a no-no for sure and it would cause me a flare up. I wonder if any Rosaceans have tried the cleanser and moisterizer and what they might think about them. These may definitely be worth looking into. They look possibly tolerable.

  3. David Pascoe says:

    Based on my success with Jojoba Oil I’d say it has a pretty good chance at being like by rosacea sufferers.

  4. Tafadzwa says:

    I am currently using the treatment and the moisturizer. I don’t get redness from my rosacea but just pustules Initially, it worked great. I think the first two weeks. My skin cleared significantly but now the pustules don’t seem to be going away. I get new ones every day.. Maybe it’s the treatment causing the breakout. Can you please recommend something that dries up the pustules and clears the dark spots caused by the pustules? Thanks so much.

  5. Brad says:

    I’ve been using the Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer for 6 months now. It’s the only moisturizer that doesn’t break me out. The liquorice root has also helped to get rid of the hyperpigmentation on my face. Try it – it works for hyperpigmentation.
