Id Sweat Acne and Overall Anti-bacterial Monolaurin Gel
This unique, skin-safe, coconut-derived monoglyceride is superbly simple, but packs one powerhouse of a skin-protective and therapeutic punch.
Treats the fungus that causes sweat acne (pityrosporum folliculitis), and is an impressive overall, broad-spectrum topical anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-protozoal treatment.
In clinical studies, this gel had a success rate of 100% when treating sweat acne, while keeping skin cooler, preventing over-sweating, and therefore preventing recurrence.
Unlike less skin-friendly anti-acne antibiotics and anti-fungals, this gel showed 0% irritation.
Also ideal for use on bare skin or under make-up to prevent shine and give skin a naturally fresh, matte finish.
NOTE: If your acne is very large, inflamed or widespread, consult a dermatologist before pursuing any topical skin care.
As often as needed...
For Sweat Acne: Squeeze out gel and apply on chest, back, arms, thighs, other sweaty areas.
For Face or Body Acne: Apply over affected areas, carefully avoiding mucosal (wet) areas of genitalia, eyes, nostrils and mouth.
For Shine Control: Use on bare skin or before makeup.
Can be reapplied as needed throughout the day.
If your acne is very large, inflamed or widespread, consult a dermatologist before pursuing any topical skin care.

Back (Bacne) ClarityRegret looking back? What you need is a rearview "clearer!" Bacne can be caused by comedogens in your shampoo, conditioner, and hair styling products trickling down onto your skin. Allergens in these products can also be at fault—while allergens don't clog pores the way comedogens do, they can irritate pores; irritation can lead to infection; and infection to pimples. Read More
What Is Hyperhydrosis? Hyperhidrosis is sweating that can be so excessive and uncontrollable so as to be highly visible and possibly even drip profusely from the skin, including the hands and feet. While the typical triggers to sweating (such as anxiety, heat, exercise, spicy food) affect those with hyperhidrosis, their sweating can occur without any triggers, such as in the cold. And sweat production for those with hyperhidrosis is significantly more than for most of us without the condition. Read More
