Inventor of this substance, Dissaya Pornpattananangkul, a bioengineering researcher from the University of California, stated, laurik acid could save millions of teenagers in the world. This substance is going to be new hope in the treatment of acne because of its natural and safe.
Through his research, Dissaya prove that the treatment using facial creams that contain this substance does not cause side effects. Not as well as other current treatments that can cause skin redness, heat, and burning.
One of the advantages the invention is to combine acid Dissaya laurik with "gold nanoparticles". These nano particles that make acid laurik not attached to each other when the processed form of cream and then can be separated quickly when applied to the skin.
"Nano particles can also help determine the bacteria that cause acne liposomes based on skin conditions, including pH (acidity)," he said.
