What does it do?

Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian formula is particularly suited to cases that are characterized by noncystic acne, abundant pimples, blackheads or bumps associated with adolescence. It is suitable for a range of skin issues that manifest in itching, redness, and fit into the pattern that Chinese medicine ascribes to heat and/or dampness.

According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the skin is associated with the lung and body fluids, and noncystic acne is often associated with heat and dampness. The redness is related to heat, and the tendency to present with a greasy complexion and pustules is associated with dampness. Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian is made up of natural Chinese herbs that deals with the root cause by clearing heat and eliminating dampness from the skin.

Zhen Zhu, true pearl, is one of Chinese medicine's most famous agents for improving the facial complexion, and it is often incorporated into skin and beauty products. Pearl clears heat and brightens the skin while improving the skin's tone and texture. When taken internally, it also improves the skin at the deepest possible level.

Pu Gong Ying (Dandelion), Jin Yin Hua (Honeysuckle flower), Ye Ju Hua (Wild Chrysanthemum flower), Zi Hua Di Ding (Violet), and Tian Kui Zi (Semiaquilegia root) are all herbs that are found together in the classical formula Wu Wei Xiao Du Yin (Five Ingredient Toxin-Dispersing Beverage). These herbs clear heat and resolve toxins, and they are particularly suited to skin conditions that manifest with redness and/or signs of damp-heat.

Chi Shao (Red Peony), Mu Dan Pi (Moutan cortex), and Dan Shen (Salvia root) are cooling herbs that move the blood, and together they clear deep-lying heat from the channels of the face. Dan Shen also improves the circulation of blood into the body's tiny capillaries to nourish the skin.

Di Fu Zi (Kochia fruit) helps the other herbs to target the skin, and it clears dampness and heat from the skin. Bei Sha Shen (Glehnia root) nourishes the lung yin, which helps the skin to stay lustrous and nourished.
