Balancing and matting cream for oily acne-prone skin.
How it Works
Equa-Derm Cream is for oily, porous skin prone to inflammation. It restores healthy microflora, reduces the activity of harmful bacteria and inflammation, moisturises and evens out the complexion. Avocutin, extracted from avocados, reduces the sebum production (down 30% after 3 weeks of daily use) eliminating greasy shine. Avocutin’s action is comparable to that of retinol without the side effects, it is one of the few topical ingredients actually able to combat hormonal acne. BioEcolia® rebalances the facial microbiome restoring healthy numbers of beneficial flora. Agarikon mushroom extract reduces oiliness without drying the skin, fights particularly stubborn, even antibiotic-resistant infection, and has an awakening effect on the skin stimulating all essential processes in the skin. With regular use the characteristic spongy look goes away forever. Indian Tamarind extract has strong moisturising properties and anti-inflammatory effect.

How to Use

How it Works
Butyl Avocadate (2%)
Butyl Avocadate (Avocutine), the molecule naturally isolated from avocados, is an inhibitor of 5-alpha-reductase type 1, an enzyme responsible for the production of oils on the face. A 2% cream is able to reduce sebum production by 30% after 3 weeks of regular use. Butyl Avocadate provides retinol-like effect without any harm and side effects, one of the very rare topicals that can actually help with hormonal acne.
BIOECOLIA® is an oligosaccharide obtained by enzymatic synthesis from natural sugars (sucrose and maltose). By virtue of the specificity of its inter-sugar links, BioEcolia® is a unique substrate for the development of the skin’s saprophytic flora to the detriment of undesirable opportunistic flora, pathogenic or not, that are ready to invade the skin at the least sign of imbalance. BioEcolia® rebalances, maintains and even stimulates the skin’s Ecoflora considered to be the body’s first line of defence against external attack.
Fomes Officinalis (Agarikon) Extract
Agarikon mushroom extract is ideal for treating oily skin or for those prone to breakouts. It’s a top-notch astringent, helping reduce oiliness without drying skin. Agarikon helps firm skin, too, making pores appear smaller. Today many microbiologists and virologists pin their hopes onto Agarikon in their quest to find an effective remedy for the particularly resistant forms of severe infections. Agarikon extract helps conquer severe and chronic skin inflammation in acne patients due to its ability to suppress the development of bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotics as a result of previous, unsuccessful treatments. Agarikon’s ability to affect the structures of parasympathetic nervous system in the skin is quite unique. Chronically oily skin almost always has wide pores, too: it is a manifestation of a particular condition, called vegetative vascular dystonia (VVC), constantly preserving the skin and muscles in a state characteristic for deep sleep. Agarikon effectively raises the skin from its sleep, restoring the healthy microcirculation and drainage, increasing its elasticity, tightening pores, smoothing out the skin’s surface and eliminating the characteristic spongy look.
Tamarindus Indica Seed Extract
Clinical studies showed that Tamarindus Indica Seed Extract works as good as hyaluronic acid. Also it has anti-inflammatory, immune-stimulating potential, and promotes wound healing property. The extract also forms a hydrocolloid film on the skin which protects it against transepidermal water loss and effectively moistens the epidermis layer of the skin.
