Why is Bulgaria Home to Some of the Best Anti-Acne Products In the World?
Bulgaria produces some of the world’s top-notch skincare products to help get rid of breakouts and the secret is in our local ingredients and decades of expertise.
For many years our country has been known for its tradition in creating effective skincare, but in recent years manufacturing has become an increasingly innovation-driven process. Our local companies are working hard to combine our traditional methods and local herbs, oils, extracts and flower waters with international high-tech innovative technologies.
One such example is the hypoallergenic range Dr. Derm Professional. Dr. Derm is an effective, high-tech range that combines the power of natural and plant-derived ingredients with innovative cosmetic drone technology. Cosmetic Drones are the most advanced delivery system in the world of beauty. It is a system that transports the active ingredients in the deeper layers of the epidermis, directly to the cells that need either hydration, nourishment, lifting, regenerating or anti-acne action.
The anti-acne products in the Dr. Derm range take care of everything from cleansing and make up removal to active treatment of the spots, blackheads and oily skin areas. The finishing products guarantee ultimate hydration, regeneration and protection of the skin and help prevent acne-scarring.
Bulgaria is famous for providing the perfect home for the rosa damascena flower in the Rose Valley, a scenic region in Bulgaria. Rose Water is famous from ancient times with its gentle cleansing and soothing properties. When used topically on the skin, the rose extract has validated anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. The rose oil added in cosmetics and the pure rose flower water reduce sebum secretion, help minimize pigment spots and have powerful anti-aging and restoring properties.
Pure rose water is a perfect cleanser and toner for skin suffering from acne and rosacea. It soothes discomfort and inflammation, reduces redness and fights the acne-causing bacteria.
The Black Sea healing mud, microalgae and microfauna are typical for the Pomorie and Burgas salt lakes located on our south Black Sea coast. Black Sea lye/mud is largely known for being rich in magnesium and having a unique mineral composition that helps balance the skin and has potent anti-inflammatory and mineralizing effect. The mud and lye boost the skin with essential minerals, microelements and other nutrients that help it heal regenerate and heal faster.
Anti-acne products that incorporate Black Sea mud usually contain over 90% natural ingredients and are suitable for all skin types and all kinds of acne. They are especially recommended for teenage and young adult skin as they are not as harsh, do not dehydrate or strip its natural hydro-lipid barriers. What anti-acne mud products really do is help the skin fight the acne-causing bacteria by reinforcing its natural barrier functions and enhancing its own defense against inflammation and breakouts.
First identified in 1905 by the Bulgarian doctor Stamen Grigorov, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus is a unique ‘good’ bacteria/probiotic naturally found in Bulgaria and important to our heritage. The probiotic in our Bulgarian yoghurt is not only nutritious and healthy when digested in its purest yoghurt form, but skincare that contains it has powerful anti-acne properties.
Yoghurt-based ranges are known to have a balancing effect on the so-called ‘skin flora’, which refers to the microorganisms which reside on the human skin. The harmful UV rays, the negative external factors, impurities, low immunity, stress hormonal dis-balance, and other factors can affect the health of the skin flora, resulting in the prevalence of ‘bad’ (acne-causing) bacteria. This causes acne breakouts, spots, scarring, and premature aging, increased sensitivity and irritation in the skin. Products with Lactobacillus Bulgaricus are gentle, mild, and soothing. They not only help reinforce the skin’s active defense against acne-causing bacteria and breakouts. Lactobacillus bulgaricus plays a beneficial part in calming inflammation in the skin and may help with conditions such as rosacea, acne, and eczema.
We have three brilliant ranges that incorporate Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and the power of probiotics to help fight acne and sensitive skin in a natural and safe way. Those include:
Yoghurt of Bulgaria by Biofresh
Rose & Joghurt by Bulgarian Rose Karlovo
LB by Phytocode
In the past couple of years, Bulgaria has been the largest producer of lavender in the world. Lavender flower water has potent anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
It is especially helpful as a toner on oily, combination, and sensitive skin as it regulates the skin’s pH and the production of excess sebum. It can be used as a toner with other anti-acne products. Lavender water’s anti-bacterial properties help eliminate acne-causing bacteria. A few sprays after cleansing will instantly help even the complexion out and will give you a fresh look.
