Hey,

I opened the paper today and right there on a page of its own was a new acne gel that has only just been released, it says that it is as powerful as antibiotics!

It says that it treats the acnes underlining problem, which is sebum it narrows the openings of the glands - preventing it from escaping to the surface. So i would imagine that this would be good for ppl with oily skins too. Says that ppl's acne clears up super fast.

It is a powerful anti imflamatory and its active ingredient is called 'nicotinamide' a tried and trusted source of vitamin B3.

It has been tested on over 1000 ppl in America, UK and Canada and has proved very successful.

U dont go to the doctor or derm to get it, it is now available in any leading chemist.

Just thought that i would tell u guys.

What do u think?

Google it, and see what u find it is called 'Freederm'. I would google 'nicotinamide' aswell though.

EDIT: O yeah, bacteria will not grow a resistance to this.

Good, I located the right item. I googled to try and find the product in Canada, but couldn't, namely Globaldrugs.ca and Feelbest.com. I did a little calculation, and it seems it cost about $20 CDN before shipping.

I also looked at the nicotinamide cream and gel, but it doesn't look like the same product at all.

WindWaker: Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'm going to continue to look into this. eusa_angel.gif

well when theres mass advertising on a product its usually crap!!! sad.gif But this stuff does look promising, the website www.freederm.co.uk looks quite nice and tells acne as it is, desciribng all the different spots and stuff, so they arent your average cash gobbling company. Ive ordered some off of pharmacy 2u and it should be here in a few days and ill tell you guys how it goes....... I have been using dermameds acne gel up until now and it does do good but it just takes some time, and im an impatient guy! lol. So yeah you guys might as well give this stuff a try, where did it say that bacteria wont get immune to it Windwaker?

Oh yeah i never looked at that, thx for pointing it out.

Thats great :-), keep us posted.

It says something about the redness, does this mean that is good for red marks aswell eusa_think.gif.

It said it in the paper that i was reading, it stated that it is unlike any other acne gels as it isnt a antibiotic, it stops the underlining problem. So bacteria carnt get a resistance to it.

Keep us updated,

Good luck,

Tom ;-)

I see where the product is being used to treat Eczema. Has anyone found info on the net to link it to acne treatment. How about cystic acne?

Thanks

Tom,

The product does sound promising. I like the fact that it is able to penetrate into the oil glands.

Now my next question. Do you know if this is available in the US or if it can be shipped here? I will start checking into it.

Thanks again!

Hey,

Yeah i like the sound of it too, at least its not an antibiotic for a change.

On the freederm website, they said that it is available in Independent pharmacies nationwide. So just look in at your local pharmacy.

I am going off to get this too. I just want it to prevent mostly as i am almost clear, it does say that it stoppes ones that u carnt see aswell as clearing active ones so.

EDIT: Also, if u carnt find any where u live, http://www.pharmacy2u.co.uk do overseas shipping.

Tom :-)

A similar thing has been out in the UK for a couple of years, Its called Nicam Gel which is exactly the same as Freederm. I asked my GP who specialises in skin complaints if she'd ever prescribed Nicam Gel and how effective it was, she said that she had prescribed it for a few people and they hadnt seen many results. But you know, different people, different results. They're classed as P medicines which means you dont need a prescription but they will only be available behind the counter at chemists

Hey Tom

After checking out the site I'm left with one question...

Why use a treatment that is targeted at reducing the inflammation of an already plugged comedone when there are treatments out there which can prevent the comedone from forming in the first place?

I've tried Nicomide-T before, which is another nicotinamid topical, it did very little for my skin and I found it more irritating than Differin

I've been using this for the past 4-5 weeks now, during the day and BP at night. Nicotinamide is an anti-inflamatory agent, which is RELATED to vitamin B3. It's primarily for use on 'angry' spots. It absorbs ultra-fast as its in a gel format. It also contains citric acid as well, although I don't know what strength.

So grey fox has it been helping you or do you not realy know as you have used in conjunction with bp. Whats your acne like now and what was it like before you were treating it? My order still hasn't come throuhg yet which means i will have to wait till tuesday before i get it due to a bank holiday on monday! BAH! I have good expectations of this because previous anti-imflam's have worked very well on me, the thought of it preventing those nasty red suckers fills me with joy! eusa_clap.gif

Well I got this stuff pretty much before all the 'major' retailers got stocks of it. My dad's a pharmacist, and found out about freederm ages ago, and ordered some straight away. It arrived the same day that I found this website, and read about the regime.

I initially started using just the freederm for a week, then the more I read about the success stories with BP I decided to try that, and gave up on the freederm for a few days, then decided to combine the 2 like I'm doing now.

Before I started all this, my cheeks had a few spots, and redness, and my forehead was pretty bad. Now my cheeks have almost cleared up, I've got a big (cystic??) spot on my left cheek which is defo going down slowly, and my forehead is just in 'aftermath' stages, getting rid of the red marks and a few little spots. Overall I'd say the combination seems to work pretty well for me.

I've tried everything over the last 9-10 years and I think I'm finally winning!!! When you're applying the freederm, don't put too much onto your finger at once, as it dries very quickly and absorbs ultra-fast. A little seems to go a long way. As an added bonus, I've found that the freederm seems to help get rid of flakies as well, so it kinda counters the over-drying and redness effects of the BP.

Thats good news about the flakiness grey fox! Myne still hasnt turned up, goddam bank holidays and such! tyler D are you in the UK? If so you need to get this from a pharmacy but if your in the USA then you cant get this exact brand, there are other brands offering the same thing though a few of them were posted i think. Good luck.
