The positive effects of lactoferrin on acne has been proven in clinical studies on acne sufferers who showed visible changes including fewer blemishes, a reduction in the amount of redness and less oiliness.
Below are the results of example consumer and clinical research studies proving the benefits of lactoferrin as a skin treatment on both Asian and Caucasian skin types when consumed daily over a period of 4 to 8 weeks.
Evaluating lactoferrin as a dietary supplement for the support of a healthy complexion
44participants, for whom other so called ‘acne cures’ had proven ineffective, but who shared the desire to be acne-free, were enrolled in the study (223 males and 21 females). For 8 weeks the subjects were supplemented with 200mg lactoferrin. Photographs taken by an independent photographer were blinden and evaluated by an independent dermatologist.
Subject data were collected at week 0 (baseline), which occurred before supplementation started, as well as at weeks 2, 4 and 8. The number of blackheads (open comedones) and non-blackheads (including whiteheads, closed comedones, papules, pustules and nodulocystic lesions) were counted on the forehead, left cheek, right cheek, chin and nose. For each subject, blackheads and non-blackheads were summed over the facial regions each week.
Evaluating the effectiveness of lactoferrin in a dietary supplement regimen
Forty-two participants were enrolled in the study and divided into 3 groups. The groups were stratified for gender and baseline acne severity. All groups were supplemented with Lactoferrin for 7 successive weeks. Group 1 received a total amount of 25mg lactoferrin per day; Group 2 received a total amount of 100mg lactoferrin per day; Group 3 received a total amount of 200mg lactoferrin per day.
Subjects had front profile photographs taken by an independent photographer. Photographs were blinded and evaluated by a dermatologist. Subject data ere reported at week 0 (baseline) and week 8.
