VitaMedica’s Healthy Skin Formula has been recommended for 20 years by medical skin care professionals for their patients with mild to moderate non-cystic acne, aged 12 years or older.
Healthy Skin Formula is formulated with vitamins, minerals, and botanicals to address skin health internally and promote a clear complexion.†
Non-cystic acne medications can have potent activity but may have significant side-effects. Go au natural by enhancing the body’s natural systems for repairing, cleansing, and normal healing.†
- A combination of vitamin A plus Betatene®, a natural mixed carotenoid blend. Vitamin A support healthy skin by reducing sebum production and the buildup of keratinocytes in the follicle.†
- The trace mineral zinc supports skin health and is involved in the proper metabolism of testosterone, the principal androgen involved in acne.†
- Vitamin C is essential for the development of collagen, a protein that provides structural support to the skin.†
- Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that prevents the oxidation of fats in the body including sebum.†
- Chromium improves glucose tolerance and may blunt the effects of a high glycemic index diet. Normal shedding of skin cells is inhibited with a diet high in simple carbohydrates.†
- Bromelain, an enzyme extracted from pineapple and selenium, a trace mineral, both have anti-inflammatory properties.†
- Burdock, Oregon Grape, dandelion and yellow dock contain herbal compounds known for their skin and blood cleansing properties, detoxify the skin.†
- Two easy-to-swallow, odorless capsules taken daily to obtain skin health benefits.

• The current standard of treatment for acne includes antibiotics, vitamin A derivatives and hormonal drugs; these drugs are useful in acne management but can induce a wide array of adverse effects. i
• The fat-soluble vitamin A and the water-soluble vitamin C are the predominant vitamins at work in the wound-healing process. ii
• A 2010 study found that in patients with mild to moderate facial acne, in 80% of those taking a zinc complex with antioxidant supplement had a significant reduction of acne. The treatment was efficacious and well tolerated. iii
• A 2018 review of 31 clinical studies found that zinc is a promising alternative to other acne treatments owing to its low cost, efficacy, lack of systemic side-effects and well-established safety profile. iv
• The inflammatory progression of acne produces free-radicals. It has been suggested that oxidative stress may be implicated in the origin of acne and that drugs with antioxidant effects (or antioxidant supplements) may be valuable adjuvants in acne treatment. v
• Zinc is a mineral that is essential for the proper development and functioning of human skin. Studies conducted in the 1970s showed that at high dosages, zinc was effective in the treatment in severe and inflammatory acne. vi
• Several studies have shown that low stomach acid is a common finding in patients who have acne. This suggests that the traditional use of bitter herbs, which act by stimulating digestive function, including acid secretion, may be useful and important for correcting acne vulgaris. Herbs with antimicrobial, inflammation- modulating, anticomedogenic, and, in certain cases, hormone-balancing actions are also useful for treating acne. vii
• A 1996 review of the literature found that bromelain is a useful therapeutic compound with anti-inflammatory action. viii
• The use of antibiotics for acne has been questioned owing to resistance concerns, especially since they are used for long periods at low doses. ix
• Certain P. acne strains were highly associated with acne, and other strains were enriched in healthy skin. x
