Could C60 help your acne?
C60 has cleared up my acne.
Probably most of us have suffered with acne at some point in our lives. Indeed it is the most common skin condition which according to the NHS website is mostly in teenagers and younger adults with about 95% of people aged 11 to 30 being affected by acne to some extent.
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition caused by inflammation of the hair follicles and oil secreting sebaceous glands producing spots and pimples particularly on the face and upper torso.
Acne often begins during puberty when the sebaceous glands attached to the hair follicles become over-stimulated and produce excessive secretions (sebum). This, along with skin cells that are not shed normally blocks the hair follicles, trapping the sebum.
Bacteria normally in the hair follicles multiply in the sebum and this leads to an infection with resulting inflammation and pus, forming typical acne spots.
Acne research and how C60 can help.
A Japanese study from the Department of Regenerative Dermatology, Osaka University School of Medicine has shown that oxidative stress plays a major role in acne formation and that oxygen-radical scavengers could be potential therapeutic agents.
As the acne pustule is the site of inflammation and free radical production; C60, a known free radical scavenger, could reduce the levels of inflammation that cause acne spots.

The Japanese study showed that using topical C60 gel twice a day improved acne after 4 to 8 weeks and that skin moisture content increased after 8 weeks, indicating that fullerene can prevent skin drying as well. Adult-acne.net has reported that dry skin can be a feature of adult acne.
In addition to reducing inflammation, in lab studies C60 was noted to reduced sebum production.
Experience of an acne sufferer using C60
We have seen first hand the beneficial effects of taking C60 in olive oil on facial acne. Dr Steve Moore's son suffered with facial acne and then started taking C60 in olive oil. Following this there was a noticeable improvement in his complexion.
Cameron is 20 years old and has suffered with acne since he was in his teens. He started taking 10ml daily of oral C60 in olive oil in May 2019 and we took a photo each month to show how his complexion changed. As you will no doubt see, there has been a noticible improvement in his complexion, both acne pimples and blackheads. This improvement has been maintained with continued use of 10ml C60 in olive oil on a daily basis but we think that he would probably still get similar results with a 5ml dose.
