As a longtime sufferer of acne, I have spent a countless number of years trying to find a product that A) wouldn’t dry out my skin and B) was relatively natural. One would think that in today’s market, there would be plenty of these. But to my dismay, I was left with the commercial products that didn’t do much preventing, only short term diminishing. At one point during high school, my break outs would get so bad that it started to affect my social life. I didn’t want to go out or even go to school. What makes acne even worse is its not only the physical aspects that make it horrible, but the painful cysts, and itchy spots as well. It wasn’t until I discovered RG-cell’s Phyto A Solution and Cleanser that my face started — almost immediately — clearing up!
Within one week I went from my whole left cheek and chin being covered with marks of all sorts to having almost smooth and spot free skin. My pores were even shrinking! I finally felt my confidence restored and after a few months, I didn’t stop receiving compliments on how smooth and glowing my skin is. So, what is the miracle in the RG-cell Phyto A solution and cleanser? Well, its a double hit. The cleanser is vegetable based, refreshing, and tingling and the solution, an overnight cream, works to combat inflammation and stimulate the skin cells beneath the face. This is all because of the natural ingredients — I’m a health nut, so this is important to me. Some of my favorite of the ingredients I will list below with a description of their benefits.
Blue Green Algae (AFA)
Blue green algae which is high in antioxidants is considered a superfood, not only for consumption, but for stem stimulation as well. This makes it an excellent candidate for aiding in the elimination and prevention of acne. The AFA Algae works deep below the epidermis to strengthen and awaken the skin cells. It has also been proven to be an excellent anti-inflammatory because of the molecule Phycocyanin which is responsible for the blue pigment. (Found in both Phyto A cleanser and solution)
Lavender is most commonly associated with calming. It has many diverse usages such as being: aromatic, a relaxing herb, used in cooking, lotions, teas, and much more. Its latin name, Lavare, even means “to wash.” It has been known to have strong anti-inflammatory properties, offering a soothing effect on skin. Lavender oil soothes itchy and irritated skin and clears the face’s complexion with its astringent like properties. (Found in Phyto A cleanser)
Tea Tree Oil
Well known for its antifungal and antiseptic benefits, Tea Tree Oil is no stranger to acne treatment. According to dermatologist, Aurora DeJuliis, MD European Medical Spa in New Jersey, the oil penetrates the blockage between your skin and sebaceous glands and it’s also good at “disinfecting the pores, and drying out whiteheads and blackheads.” Much like Lavender, Tea Tree Oil is able to moisturize and soothe inflamed skin which is common with most acne (Found in Phyto A solution)
Rosa Canina Seed Extract
Is a source of multiple vitamins, such as C, A, D and E, as well as other antioxidants. Coming from wild roses, this has been utilized by many indigenous cultures to treat skin conditions. Rosa Canina seed extract works by hydrating the skin, safe for oily skin because of its absorbing properties, then creating a protective film that softens and heals the outer layer. A very versatile oil that hydrates and diminishes acne scarring. (Found in Phyto A solution)
Those are just four among many, many great and natural ingredients in both the Phyto A cleanser and solution. With so many new products out that are made in labs with questionable origins, it is important to recognize the benefits of the natural ingredients that have been placed all around us. With little to no side effects and many and more benefits, the ingredients used in the Phyto A cleanser and solution have been more than I could of ever asked for. It is a two step, all in one, smells great, punch in the face (literally) to the acne that has pained me most of my teenage and young adult life and I encourage anyone else who also might be suffering from acne to give the cleanser and solution a try.
