Washing Craem 20 is specially formulated for disinfection of acne & acne prone skin (including black head & comedo skin). Sulfur Zinc Oxide and Sodium PCA are inevitable ingredients in the whole disinfection process. Using Sulfur zinc oxide for acne can help prevent the disorder as well as regulate the activity of the oil glands. Combined with a compound of oxygen, this mineral is effective in allowing protein synthesis and promoting a healthy immune system. The skin disorder known as acne is a result of an imbalance of two or more factors having to deal with the sebaceous gland and the body's duct system. Oil is normally produced in the body by the gland in the skin, then the oil moves through the ducts to the hair follicles and to the top layer of the dermis. When an excess amount of oil is produced, it can result in a blockage in the duct system. If the oil cannot move freely through the duct, it is clogged and results in the disorder. Another cause of the disorder is when the skin cells improperly shed and, instead of flowing through the duct, stay longer in the body and build up within the duct to the point of closure. Zinc oxide for acne in combination with a sulfur mineral has been shown to clear up acne within one day. The sulfur destroys bacteria quickly and the zinc combats rashes.
