What is p.acne? How to get rid of it?
What is propionibacterium acne (p.acne)? It is the key bacteria to Acne formation and Skin inflammation. If it is not carefully treated, it can lead to permanent scarring!
Asians are typically more susceptible to acne outbreaks. Why is this the case?
- They live in generally warm climate
- As a result, skin produces more oil
- The oil /sebum offer a habitat for acne bacteria to grow and cause outbreaks in the form of reddening or bumps
Common anti-acne agents available in the market include Benzoyl peroxide, Resveratrol and Salicylic acid. But these are only effective for mild Acne and they might have side effects. For instance, Benzoyl peroxide in skin care products can result in dry and sensitive skin.
So is there more affordable and effective alternative?

Tests & Studies on NAPA-i
According to the paper disc test, NAPA-I is capable of inhibiting the growth of Acne strains by 2.5cm with only 1mg/gl used. Furthermore, comparing NAPA-I with natural products 1, 5-8, NAPA-I only require 0.25 mg/gl for an observable results.
According to the inhibition test, NAPA-I inhibits the production of LPS-induced NO in Raw264.7 cells more effectively than pure peptide (AFPG) at low concentrations.
*Raw264.7: Mouse Macrophage Cell Line
**Nitric oxide (NO) is an important molecule for host defense response against various pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Overproduction of NO induces tissue damage associated with acute and chronic inflammation.
According to the toxicity test, the cell viability remained constant when NAPA-I was tested with HACAT and 3T3 cells. Hence, NAPA-I is non-toxic to human skin
HACAT: Human Keratinocyte Cell Line 3T3: Mouse Fibroblast Cell Line
In-Vivo Test Results
In order to test the efficacy of NAPA-I Peptide, our supplier conducted an in-vivo test against 20 participants in the age range from 18 to 40s with the dosage level 10%. The test was conducted for 4 weeks, and the result is as you can see from the following:
