Acne Keto Cream (Ketoconazole / Niacinamide) 2/4% 30mL
This skin care for acne is recommended for hormonal acne occasionally expereinced by patients on TRT/HRT as well as treatment of fungal acne. This type of acne is usually caused when pores become clogged with yeast in a condition called pityrosporum folliculitis. Because most types of acne are caused by bacteria, other types of acne treatments will not help treat this condition.
How do you know if you have pityrosporum folliculitis? If you’re tried other forms of acne treatment and noticed no difference in your breakouts, it may be because your acne is being caused by fungus rather than bacteria.
Ingredients in the Acne Keto Cream include:
Ketoconazole 2%/Niacinamide 4%
This acne cream is comprised of two ingredients:
Ketoconazole- An anti-fungal medication which can also be effective in stimulating new hair growth if suffering from androgenetic alopecia. In addition to killing fungi, ketoconazole is also helpful in countering the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - Helps protect skin from UV damage while suppressing melanin from reaching the surface of the skin. Melanin is a naturally occurring substance in the body responsible for the skin's color and absorption of UV rays. Too much melanin can result in age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation. Applying niacinamide topically can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness, skin sallowness (yellowing), while also improving skin elasticity.
