Two-Part “Inside-Outside” Acne Treatments Offer Alternative to Prescription Therapies
The psychological and physical scars left behind by acne can be devastating, especially to a teenager already struggling with the insecurities of adolescence. Many teens and their parents turn to prescription acne medications only to find that they are either ineffective or cause potentially severe side effects. Nature’s Cure has developed an alternative that combines the best of science and nature to achieve safety and efficacy; the Nature’s Cure 2-Part Acne Treatment.
Nature’s Cure includes all-natural tablets and a topical treatment to fight acne from the inside and outside. The Nature’s Cure tablet, based on homeopathic medicine, was the first internal anti-acne medication sold without a prescription. The FDA-regulated tablets help correct internal imbalances to stop acne where it starts. The topical treatment, in the form of a vanishing cream, clears existing pimples.
Homeopathic treatments have been used for centuries worldwide and, unlike many conventional drugs, have no known negative side effects or drug interactions. “Conventional drugs work by over-powering disease, causing side effects and toxicity problems. Homeopathics stimulate the body’s own natural healing ability,” explains Nature’s Cure founder and president Amy Baker.
Prescription alternatives have possible adverse effects with no guarantees that they will eliminate acne. Even Accutane, considered the most effective acne prescription, doesn’t work for everyone. About one person in four has acne again within two years and only about 33-60% get rid of their acne for good according to leading dermatologists*. And there is a near certainty (80-90%) of chapped lips, dry itchy skin, and dryness of nose/nosebleeds. More troubling side effects include eye irritation in 40% of users, joint and muscle pains (15%), hair thinning (10%), intestinal, urinary and headache symptoms (5% each) and increased sun sensitivity (5%). Most serious is the mounting evidence that Accutane is linked to depression and suicide.
The highly publicized suicide of Charles Bishop, the 15-year old who crashed a plane into a Tampa skyscraper in January, heightened awareness of the suicide risk. Other high profile incidents include the May 1999 suicide of a Michigan congressman’s 17-year old son who had been taking Accutane. The FDA received reports of 66 suicides and 1,373 cases of psychiatric problems among Accutane users as of December, 2000 according to a report in USA Today. These incidents led to congressional hearings in the Fall of 2000 and prompted doctors to come forward with evidence, based on previous cases of vitamin A toxicity, that supports a link between Accutane, a vitamin A derivative, and depression/suicide. In response, the FDA toughened restrictions on who can take Accutane and which doctors can prescribe it. The agency also added stronger warnings to package labeling and requires patients to sign a paper certifying that they understand the risks associated with the drug.
As a result, doctors, patients and parents have become more cautious about Accutane and, according to a May 5, 2002 Wall Street Journal article, “are searching for new, less toxic, options to treat acne.” Yet other prescriptions, like antibiotics and retinoids, are less effective and have their own side effects including irritation, burning, dryness and sun sensitivity, as well as the potential for antibiotic overuse, which can harm the protective flora in the digestive tract. Therefore, the only remaining widely-available options are over-the-counter products, most of which offer little relief.
Nature’s Cure is different because it fights acne from inside and outside the body. Another unique feature is that the treatment is available in both a male and female version. “Since acne, particularly face acne, is so closely linked to hormonal fluctuations caused by stress, monthly cycles, or lifestage changes like pregnancy or menopause, it is important to treat men and women differently. Nature’s Cure tablets combine just the right ingredients to help balance your body while fighting bacteria growth,” explains Baker.
Product effectiveness has been confirmed by consumers. After six years on the market, the Nature’s Cure Acne Treatments are top sellers in the acne category (see attached Chain Drug Review article). Consumers call in frequently to express their appreciation of product effectiveness and safety. Many have tried prescriptions without success and were thrilled to find dramatic improvement with Nature’s Cure without the risks and at a fraction of the cost and time investment.
Sandra Loppnow, a cosmetologist from Caledonia, WI is one example. She suffered from acne all her life and was deeply concerned when she saw that her four daughters inherited her acne problem. They spent hundreds on over-the-counter and mail-order products, as well as dermatologist antibiotic and retinoid treatments. Nothing worked and they were left with skin irritation and redness on top of their acne. They saw Nature’s Cure at the store and decided it was worth a shot for just $10. Within a month, every one of them was almost completely rid of her acne; and within two months they could go without make-up (see attached before/after photos). “I was skeptical at first, but I I liked the idea of the all-natural tablets. I couldn’t believe how well it worked – it even improved our skin texture, and it was so easy with just two pills a day. It changed our lives! My girls have been Prom and Homecoming Queens and I finally got rid of my acne at age 48. I recommend it to everyone I can,” gushes Mrs. Loppnow.
Nature's Cure Inc. was founded in 1994 to develop and market innovative Health & Beauty Care products that successfully integrate the best of the clinical world with the safety of natural products. The company markets and distributes the first OTC two-part acne treatment with an internal and external system approach and has specific formulations for males and females. Using homeopathic all-natural tablets along with highly effective traditional topical treatments, Nature's Cure revolutionized the acne category in the Food/Drug/Mass channels.
* Teen People, August 2002: “About 60 percent of [Los Angeles based dermatologist Howard] Murad’s patients who have taken Accutane remain acne-free; [Manhattan based dermatologist Ronald] Sherman maintains that Accutane is a cure only about 33 percent of the time.”
