    Sorry to hear your acne is spreading. Usually, people with oily skin have a higher tendency of sustaining acne infections because the excess sebum on their skin clots with nearby dead skin cells, trapping multiplying acne populations within pores. However, conventional medical wisdom doesn't apply to all people. You may be developing an allergy to certain foods or to certain chemicals which come into contact with your skin. There are an increasing number of cases where foods high in animal fat are responsible for histamine reactions on the skin (though these reactions tend to take place mostly on the back and chest). If you're so inclined, you could take a two-week break from red meat, pork, fried chicken, whole milk, etc. and see if that improves your skin. You could also opt to double-rinse your clothes or pour 1/2 cup white vinegar into the rinse cycle to neutralize all of your detergent's alkalinity. Alternatively, you could try our allergy-free laundry detergent, which is not only pH-neutral but also free of any chemicals. And of course, you'll want to make sure all of your cosmetics are non-comedogenic. All of the above solutions may help alleviate future breakouts, but they won't be complete solutions even if you are allergic to animal fat and detergent chemicals.. You will also need an anti-bacterial, pH-balancing product to reduce the acne populations on your skin and assist your immune system from further in-pore infections. For that solution, we have two strengths of soap, Aqua and Coral KAVI. Coral KAVI, more effective against acne than Aqua KAVI, may dry your skin.
  2. Sorry to hear about your family's skin problems, but you're all certainly not alone! Off-the-shelf soaps tend to strip the skin's hydrolipidic layer, and many people are unable to restore their skin's acid mantle fast enough before their next shower, leaving their skin victim to a perpetual cycle of distress and irritation. Coral KAVI contains 2% colloidal sulphur -- a very effective acid (with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties) which brings the skin's pH back down to its natural level of 5.5, significantly reducing the skin's likelihood of triggering a histamine response (i.e., redness, inflammation, and acne). Sulphur is also anti-seborrheic, which means it does an excellent job of removing sebum (skin oil). However, if your son is producing abnormal amounts of sebum, no topical solution will solve the problem. You will certainly need to discuss the matter with your dermatologist, but the only product I have seen which permanently reduces oil production by the thyroid is Accutane. Accutane, however, carries many terrible side effects (suicidal behavior, bone and muscle loss, kidney and liver damage, hearing and vision damage, and a host of other problems). If he is thinking about it (as many teens have), I would steer him clear of it. None of our products contain titanium dioxide or any other sunscreens, nor any parabens or other allergy-inducing preservatives. If you are experiencing breakouts or irritation on your body, I would recommend our Laundry Cleanser as well. Its pH-neutral solution will preserve your skin's hydrolipidic layer throughout the day. Off-the-shelf detergents have a pH of about 11, and that alkalinity does not wash off in a single rinse cycle and is subsequently transferred to your skin, raising its natural pH. Alternatively, you may wish to double rinse your clothes or pour 1/2 cup white vinegar into the rinse cycle to neutralize the alkalinity of the detergent. If you have any more questions, please feel free to reply. And if you do choose to try KAVI, we would be very interested in your feedback. KAVI Support
