SUMMIT, N.J. Videsante Pharmaceuticals has developed a gender-specific line of acne treatments that are available without a prescription.
“It’s amazing when you look at the many and fundamental differences between men’s and women’s skin. Up 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. “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.”
CTRL for Her and CTRL for Him are topical solutions. The science behind the products is based on four factors that trigger acne: hyperkeratinization, sebum production, infection and inflammation.
The products are made with Videsante’s proprietary 5 alpha Phyto-Technology that attack the root source of acne by reducing oil and sebum production in the skin. The formulas also feature a series of prebiotic complexes that are designed to kill P. acne bacteria deep in the pores and salicylic acid to clear away dead skin cells and other debris. The products are paraben free.
