We Have New Labels!

17 posts in this topic

I've got some exciting news for those of you who use acne.org products. We have just finished designing new labels for you guys.

While we love the current design of the products, they don't reflect the new design of acne.org and are starting to look a little dated. Our aim was to come up with a design that not only matched the new acne.org, but also reflected the high quality of the products.

We (Dan, Kent, Paul) worked tirelessly to come up with a design that we all loved. But in the end, we think we cracked it.

Please let us know what you think. (only if you love them though) ;-)

P.S we don't have an ETA on when the products will be shipping with the new design. But I do know I can't wait to have these on my bathroom shelf!

Good job, Paul! They look much better than the old ones! I almost wish I had acne again ;)

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Really like the new design, very professional and 'pharmaceutical' looking. As Brandy can attest, I would personally like to see more shiny gold on the labels though.... much much more shiny gold.

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

They do look very nice! However they remind me of something you would get on prescription, quite professional I guess?

Great job none the less


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

///

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

Hey Kyle, thanks. Yes, our Benzoyl Peroxide for example, is pharmaceutical grade and we wanted to ensure the design reflected the high quality of the products.

Maybe by the time I place my next order, I'll get some bottles with these schnazzy new digs. I assume the bottles themselves are staying the same. It's only the labels that are being changed, correct?

That's right. Just the labels are changing. We still have stock of the old design, so we can't give an ETA on the new labels. But perhaps in the future, when we know the new labels are shipping, we can let you all know :)

Any update on the general timing for rollout of these new labels? You may not have specifics. But the original announcement was in February, are we getting fairly close now? The labels look great!

Definitely! The labels are what makes this regimen so awesome...Almost 10 months after the announcement and now "[they] can tell you that [they]'re definitely close!". Awesome. Instead of focusing on labels they should focus on delivering and respecting the people working for them and those using this website. The NSA is nothing compared to this company. I have my (reliable) sources and this will probably be gone anytime soon anyway. Or they'll leave it here to show how "unbiased" and "open" they are. Only use this regimen if everything else has failed you (except maybe Accutane). For the majority this is a stupid regimen as they can control acne using much less BP. This regimen should not be a first to try, it is not based on science at all, while at the same time they are questioning other methods without (much) science backing it up.

You have your "sources," huh? Let's just say you're the one who sounds like a wack job. I'd be in favor of them deleting your post, and mine right after it.

Before opening your potty mouth you could do some research yourself. Talk to people who have worked for the company. K? Thx! I was convinced by some people here that there was nothing wrong with the integrity of this company. But after what I have found out I have no doubt that integrity is not their first priority. Neurotic is a word that suits them better. And they are not the charity they want you to believe. They make more than enough money. That is fine because it is a business. They just should not make it appear as if they are the equivalent of mother Theresa then. The labels look good though.

You seem to have a big problem with Dan making money. Guess what? That's your problem. It says right on the web site and his videos that you can use a cleanser, BP, and moisturizer from a store if choose. Don't want to support his business? Go ahead and give your money to the rich corporations that already make boatloads of money instead. That's up to you. Dan started making a Benzoyl Peroxide in a large size years ago cause it was ideal for people on the regimen. It was very popular so he made other products as well. Now, I would guess he's probably making millions (though I have no clue). Good for him. He tried to start a web site that helped people with acne by sharing a regimen. It grew, there was demand for specialized products, and he eventually filled that need and made a ton of money from it. There's no problem with that, especially considering how he has helped so many people. Many people, myself included, would be pretty upset if his products didn't exist. I've never met Dan, but what you're saying needs to be exposed as pure foolishness. If anyone reads your post and my post back-to-back I'm sure they'll be able to recognize that.

As far as talking to people who have worked at the company....Dan only about five or six employees. So I doubt you're in touch with them either.

How have they ever advertised themselves as a charity? They give you the info needed to cure acne. You can do the regimen on your own without their help. But frankly, it's better to buy from them. So you can either take the free knowledge about killing acne and use drug store products to clear your skin--oh wait, maybe I should correct myself because that is pretty charitable--or you can buy their products. As far as being neurotic, that also doesn't surprise me because Dan is known to be a perfectionist and it wouldn't surprise me if he got a little uptight sometimes. But I don't want to hang out with him, I just want to use his products. So, I honestly don't know what you're bent out of shape about.

I see that you have significantly toned down your original post. What a shame. But anyway, I have already replied in another topic and I will leave it at that. You may believe whatever you want to.

I didn't tone down anything. I deleted the sections that were not relevant to your post on this particular forum (as opposed to your other thread) to avoid confusing the reader. Obviously you have no problem making unbacked claims that confuse the average reader (i.e. comparing acne.org's practices to the NSA). Personally, I like to avoid info that's not relevant to the conversation at hand.

I've worked for the company for the best part of 10 years and I can happily report that I'm proud to be part of the team. I believe 100% in both The Regimen and Acne.org as an invaluable resource to acne sufferers.

Acne.org is not a charity and doesn't claim to be, but its certainly not a your average company either.

Long before Acne.org products existed, The Regimen was a huge success and it continues to help thousands of sufferers from around the world. Aside from Accutane, I believe The Regimen is the best acne treatment available today. But Acne.org is much more than just The Regimen, it's an entire community of people sharing their experiences with the entire range of treatments available. If profits were Acne.org's focus, then we would not be recommending other treatments or allowing our users to discuss them.

Do we push The Regimen? HELL YES! We believe passionately in The Regimen but even more so, in helping acne suffers achieve clear skin. Dan, myself and the many of the other team members are ex acne suffers, we've been there and understand.

Now, to Acne.org products. They are higher quality and better value than any of the alternatives, which brings me on to the next part of what makes The Regimen unique. No other company that I know of, offers alternative products to use with their system and trust me, many people do opt for the alternatives and that's fine. As long as they're following The Regimen and getting clear, that's good for me. Would I prefer everybody to buy the Acne.org products? Yes, as I can personally vouch for the exceptional quality and value for money. If profits were Acne.org's focus, then the products would be lower quality, more expensive and come in much smaller bottles.

True story: we have thousands of users waiting for an SPF from Acne.org, it's been years in the making. Dan has spent endless hours researching and testing many different formulas in a bid to create the best SPF moisturizer. I've tested many myself and they've been great but as far as Dan was concerned, they were not perfect and until they are, we cannot release it. Earlier this year, we actually come up with a formula Dan was quite happy with. We designed the labels and were ready for production but at the last minute Dan pulled the plug as he wasn't 100% happy, despite it being IMO better than almost all the other SPF's out there. If profits were Acne.org's focus, then the SPF would have been released years ago.

When I first discovered Acne.org, I had tried everything but Accutane to clear my acne but nothing had worked. Like many others here, I wasted thousands of pounds on treatments that failed to deliver on their promises, acne pretty much ruled my life. Then I found Acne.org and The Regimen and guess what? It worked. Unfortunately, one thing The Regimen is not, is a cure. I used The Regimen for years but if I stopped, my acne would come back and so once I reached my late twenties, I opted for Accutane and I've been clear ever since. Anybody I encounter with acne, I recommend The Regimen, but for people 30+, I'd probably recommend Accutane instead, as nobody wants to be treating their acne for the rest of their lives. However for teenagers and young adults, its worth doing The Regimen until their acne goes away, because the side-effects of Accutane are fairly severe and in many cases, for life.

I could go on all day, but I won't, I have an important mission to attend to.
