ASMS will contain a line of products including: a mask containing colloidal gold for repairing acne marks and scars, a natural hypoallergenic line of topical products supporting healthy skin and a product addressing existing pimples.
Science Behind AcnEase®
AcnEase® is a proprietary all natural botanical therapeutic® specifically developed to treat skin disorders including acne. AcnEase is a blend of the highest quality herbal extracts selected for their inherent properties to overcome the medically recognized factors involved in the formation of whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. This clinically tested product provides a necessary balance between demonstrated effectiveness and safety for individuals suffering from acne. AcnEase is gluten free, phytoestrogens free, animal by products free and chemical and GMO free.
Why It Works
AcnEase herbal ingredients work synergistically to restore the internal physiologic balance that is disrupted by endocrine changes, mental tension, stress and diet. Acne is actually a visible or external manifestation of an internal disorder. Acne is caused by an over production of sebum by the sebaceous glands in your skin. This excess sebum tends to clog pores, which then accumulate dead skin cells and bacteria. These clogged pores are visible on the surface of the skin as white heads, black heads (comedones) and pimples. AcnEase works to decrease this excess sebum production, thereby decreasing oily skin, and reducing the number of comedones and pimples seen on the surface of the skin. AcnEase is therefore unique in that it addresses the cause of acne and skin related problems.
AcnEase has been shown in clinical trials to successfully (95%) improve acne in patients 15-31 years of age caused by overproduction of the sex hormones (androgens or estrogen) and to reduce the inflammation caused by bacteria growing in the clogged pores of the skin. AcnEase has also been shown to be a highly effective (over 85% response rates) for adults with chronic and adult acne. This is not surprising since the same factors responsible for teenage acne cause adult acne. Since AcnEase was developed to correct, its beneficial effect is not restricted to acne. Improvement in chronic facial flushing and GI related problems associated with chronic facial flushing (Rosacea) and acne have also been reported following treatment.
AcnEase has received the highest award for clinical efficacy in China, successfully improving acne in more than 95% of patients in controlled clinical studies. Today AcnEase is manufactured in the USA under current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), satisfying the highest standards for manufacturing of herbal-based medicines. Experiential data collected from thousands of customers indicates over a 96% satisfaction rate.
Depending on the severity of the symptoms, AcnEase may produce noticeable results within 1-2 weeks. To achieve general improvement in cysts, whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples, the standard 1 month of treatment must be completed. For individuals whose acne is chronic, and was resistant to standard Western medical treatment, an increased dose and duration may be necessary.

Safety and Other Benefits
The ingredients present in AcnEase have been tested extensively at doses that greatly exceed the human dose, and have been shown to be safe with no signs of toxicity (Preclinical Safety). In addition, none of the herbal ingredients present in the AcnEase formula have been cited on the list of dangerous herbs compiled by International regulatory authorities; nor is it on their list of herbs known to cause serious side effects. The herbs used to make AcnEase are not present on the endangered species list either.
AcnEase achieves its beneficial effects by targeting the cause of acne without the harmful effects associated with the long-term use of other systemic agents. Oral antibiotics for instance are taken to reduce the number of bacteria growing in clogged pores; they do not prevent over production of sebum. The widespread use of antibiotics is not supported by the medical community due to the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Isotretinoins (Accutane) do target over secretion by sebaceous glands, but are associated with a number of serious side effects including depression in young males, birth defects, inflammatory bowel disease etc. Accutane is actually presently a subject of Class Action Suit in regards to those adverse effects and the use of its generic versions is reserved for the most severe forms of chronic acne and accompany by a legal release.
For mild to moderate
acne, topical agents are routinely used.
Firstly, these products primarily treat existing pimples and do little
to prevent new pimples from forming. The most common active ingredients present
in topical products include benzoyl peroxide ) and salicylic acid; both
ingredients can lead to dry, irritated and prematurely aged skin. Many topical products, including the retinoic
acid based products, cause skin irritation and also have sun restrictions for
use. The common denominator for all topical products is they all treat the
visible manifestation of acne, “the pimple” but do little to prevent future
acne. AcnEase is unique in that it targets
the cause of acne providing longer-term results. And given its unique mechanism of action, it
can be used carefully in conjunction with topical agents.

Pregnancy Categories for Drugs from the FDA
|Category A||"Controlled studies in women fail to demonstrate a risk to the fetus in the first trimester (and there is no evidence of a risk in later trimester), and the possibility of fetal harm appears remote."||For all practical purposes, there are no Category A drugs.|
|Category B||"Either animal-reproduction studies have not demonstrated a fetal risk but there are no controlled studies in pregnant women or animal-reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect (other than a decrease in fertility) that was not confirmed in controlled studies in women in the first trimester (and there is no evidence of a risk in later trimesters)."||Category B drugs include prenatal vitamins, acetaminophen and several other medications used routinely and safely during pregnancy. If there is a clinical need for a Category B drug, it is considered safe to use it.|
|Category C||"Either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the fetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus."||Category C drugs have not been shown to be harmful to fetuses (if they had been, they wouldn't be Category C drugs). However, there are some reasons to be more concerned about these drugs than Category B drugs. If the pregnant patient will benefit from a Category C drug, it is generally used, although most obstetricians would prefer a Category B drug if it will give equivalently good results.|
|Category D||"There is positive evidence of human fetal risk, but the benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk (e.g., if the drug is needed in a life-threatening situation or for a serious disease for which safer drugs cannot be used or are ineffective.)"||Category D drugs have some significant risks. They should be used during pregnancy only when the alternatives are worse.|
|Category X||"Studies in animals or humans have demonstrated fetal abnormalities or there is evidence of fetal risk based on human experience or both, and the risk of the use of the drug in pregnant women clearly outweighs any possible benefit. The drug is contraindicated for those who are or may become pregnant."||Category X drugs should not be used during pregnancy|
