Bloom Organics Offers Options for Teen Acne

Dec 16, 2011 02:49PM

Bloom Organics, Day Spa & Boutique, has launched an initiative aimed at teens with problem acne.

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting 50 million Americans and almost 75 percent of teenagers. The psychological effects of acne on already self-conscious teenagers can be devastating. There is also a confusing array of lotions and potions claiming to cure acne, with promises of instantly attractive, glowing skin. However, many of these products contain synthetic chemicals; petroleum derivatives such as propylene glycol; parabens and a range of ingredients. The long-term effects of these are, at best, unknown.

Bloom Organics’ approach is both organic and holistic. According to Yasmin Farrell, owner and CIDESCO trained therapist, “We use products with ingredients that have powerful acne fighting properties such as willow bark extract, which is a naturally occurring BHA, or Tea Tree with its antiinflammatory and antibacterial qualities.”
