This is yet more proof that using the natural herb thyme, is more effective at killing the acne bacteria then using benzoyl peroxide. There is growing evidence to prove that natural treatments are the kingpin at getting rid of acne for good.
A recent study carried out by researchers at Leeds University suggests that thyme may have a greater antibacterial effect than standard concentrations of benzoyl peroxide in the treatment of acne.
Dr. Margarita Gomez Escalada, a senior lecturer in Microbiology and Genetics at the university and student Kimberley Sanderson have together found thyme to be more effective in killing the acne bacterium, particularly in sensitive skin than traditional chemical-based creams as the herb is believed to be less irritating….
The question I ask is, with evidence like this, why run the risks of using acne medications and OTCs to treat the your acne condition when going natural is safer and more effective as it can not only treat the symptoms, but also deal with treating the causes unlike drugs and potions?
