New! Mentholatum Acnes Postbiotics Cleanser and Acnes Oil-free Gel Lotion

November 6, 2022

Facial acne can seriously undermine a person’s confidence and self-esteem, and while in most cases it goes away after puberty when hormonal fluctuations stabilise, the skin condition may sometimes extend into adulthood. According to biomedical journal PubMed, acne is often thought to primarily affect teenagers but a survey revealed that 50% of women aged 20 to 29 continue to experience acne, and as much as 25% of women aged 40 to 49 still do as well. 

Mentholatum understands how this can impact young adults’ quality of life and has developed a skincare range specifically to tackle this skin problem. Developed from Rohto-Pharmaceutical, a global pharmaceutical company with over 120 years’ experience in pharmaceutical technology, Mentholatum Acnes is Japan’s No. 1 brand for acne-prone skin.
