an "acne multivitamin"

people are always talking about all the differnt vitamins that help acne.

so why doesnt someone make an acne multivitimin that only contains all the vitamins that would help with acne?

No barriers that I can see. It could be that no one's willing to invest the (marketing) money until they can piece together enough weak research to be able to claim "studies show!". You really want marketing bucks to make money on acne cures, since none of them are actually cures. You want to create the buzz that the product does something worthwhile, then let the natural disease fluctuations (and large # of young people who will "grow out of it") confound people into thinking you're really on to something (as opposed to greatly helping a few, marginally improving some, and doing nothing for most).

There are some, although I don't think they've ever proven to be effective. I think Puritan's Pride has a formula for acne, and Frutels is a little vitamin type gummy (I think) marketed to acne sufferers. Clear Pores is a vitamin b5 product marketed for acne too.

As far as supplements go, there is some research to indicate that zinc and fish oil may be helpful.

I'm on one. It's made by Greens+ and it's called Perfect Skin. It comes in soft gels and in a powdered form, however the powdered form is much more expensive and is really just made for maintaining healthy skin where as the soft gels are made to combat acne. It contains Fish oil, green tea extract, vitamin E, selenium, chromiun, zinc and a couple other fancy things that i'm unfamilliar with. I can't realy tell you if it works or not, i take it in conjunction with a bunch of other vitamins.

Mutli vitamins may not be as effective considering they contain fairly low dosages of the different vitamins. A while back I took a multi vitamin every day for a month and didn't see any change.
