♫ Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud
Have you heard of this brand called Papulex? Prior to its arrival on my doorstep, I had never heard of it, so I did a little bit of Googling and found out a bit more about this brand and their products. Papulex is a dermocosmetic range that focuses on improving skin's appearance, reduce breakouts and pimples, while ensuring skin appears healthy and revitalised, using its unique Power of 3 triple-action formulation.
There are a number of things that can cause acne:
- Acne-causing bacteria
- Excess oil
- Blocked pores
- EU Patented ABA Technology - Reduces acne-causing bacteria
The ABA (Anti-Bacterial Adhesive substance) technology is unique to Papulex™, and works as a barrier to stop bacteria from attaching to skin cells, at the same time blocking them to reduce infection.
- Nicotinamide - Controls inflammation and calms breakouts
Early treatment of inflammatory pimples may significantly reduce acne mark and scar risk. Nicotinamide/Niacinamide is a natural molecule derived from Vitamin B3, and has anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce skin inflammation.
- Zinc PCA - Reduces skin oiliness and shine
Zinc is a well-known ingredient used in reducing sebum production. In Papulex products, zinc is combined with L-PCA, which is produced naturally in the body to regulate sebum production without causing skin dryness.
Papulex™ has recently introduced its anti-blemish Papulex™ Gel, a transparent gel that provides intensive anti-blemish skincare for localized spots on face and other small areas on the skin. Fragrance-free and paraben-free, the Papulex™ Gel is suitable for night and day use. It is also non-photosensitizing, meaning that it helps to prevent damage from sunlight/UV rays on the skin.
The gel has a lightweight consistency, and applies clear on the skin. A tiny dot is sufficient for most acne/blemish spots, so you don't have to worry about using it up too quickly. Although it is stated as fragrance-free, it does have a barely detectable, slightly... medical scent. Doesn't affect the gel's functions or bother me in any way, but I figured it needs a small mention. :)
The Papulex™ Gel (40ml) is made in France, and retails at RM52.80. Available at all local and leading pharmacies, as well as selected clinics nationwide.
For optimum acne-management results, the Papulex™ Gel can be used alongside other Papulex™ range of products:
- Papulex™ Moussant Soap-Free Cleansing Gel (150ml), RM72.50
- Papulex™ Oil-Free Cream (40ml), RM65.00
- Papulex™ Lotion (125ml), RM90.00
