Additional information

Zinc is essential for hormone balance and for healthy skin. It is involved in normal oil gland function and required for the repair of wounds and other skin problems. Together, these actions mean that zinc supplements may provide extra support for acne-prone skin.

Betacarotene is converted in the body into vitamin A, which is also essential for healthy skin function and repair.

Echinacea supports the body’s resistance to infection via a number of mechanisms, including supporting the activities of a group of immune cells called phagocytes, whose role is to engulf and digest bacteria and other foreign bodies. Consequently, it may provide extra immune support for those with bacterial skin conditions, such as acne.
