anybody heard any reviews on this? http://www.clearogen.com/

It says it can reduce the DHT in skin,thats why it is effective for sebum overproduction induced acne.This is definitely my problem and any oral pills( like BC and spironolactone)fighting this matter are out of the question in my case because of the unbearable side-effects (dry eye is the biggest issue)soit would be nice to reduce the oiliness using a topical product.

Really, I'm not sure what ingredients in there are supposed to be anti-DHT, except maybe the lineolic acid in the lotion. Clearly their main active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, just like every other acne treatment, though...I wouldn't waste my money unless they publish their anti-DHT ingredients.

You can try taking natural DHT blockers, such as:

- saw palmetto

- stinging nettle

- pygeum

- green tea

- pumpkin seed oil

- emu oil, or anything with a significant amount of lineolic acid
