CTRL Targets Acne

December 8, 2008

Acne care has gone gender specific with CTRL, a new line of topical, non-prescription products. Billed as a carefully-adjusted proprietary formula and a unique combination of natural ingredients to attack and prevent acne at its root cause, CTRL for Her and CTRL for Him have been created address the specific design and structure of the skin it is treating.

“It’s amazing, when you look at the many and fundamental differences between men’s and women’s skin. Until now, ordinary acne products treat acne with the exact same approach without consideration to these differences in male and female skin,” said Brian Jennings, founder and chief executive officer of Videsante Pharmaceuticals, based in Summit, NJ. “CTRL is designed to take those differences into account and provide a safe, healthy, comprehensive approach that can erase not only the appearance of acne but treat the root causes of it as well.”

The science behind CTRL is based on the four factors that trigger acne, including hyperkeratinization, sebum production, infection and inflammation. CTRL uses Videsante’s proprietary 5 alpha Phyto-Technology, featuring patented ingredients that attack the root source of acne by reducing oil and sebum production in the skin. At the same time, the products also deliver a series of prebiotic complexes that are designed to kill P. acne bacteria deep in the pores without damaging other important skin-balancing bacteria.
