[Anti-inflammation] Research has shown that lipid extracts from six chlorella species are effective in the inhibition of the lipase enzyme and ROS produced by P. acne. The same test was conducted to test for the inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chlorella was found to be effective against inflammation1. These anti-inflammatory properties of chlorella work together to help prevent acne breakouts.
[Anti-pigmentation] Argan oil from the Argania spinosa tree contains an ingredient called sterolins which helps the skin to retain more moisture and promotes healthy skin cell metabolism. When the skin is moist, the body tones down the production of sebum, thereby preventing further acne breakouts. Vitamin E found in argan oil has antioxidant properties which help to fade acne scars by removing damaged cells and encouraging the growth of new healthy skin cells.
