What is PravENAC?
PravENAC™ is a proprietary Lactoferrin–based anti-acne supplement specifically formulated to help improve skin. The active ingredients in the formula include aloe vera and zinc gluconate and they provide antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help you achieve and maintain normal acne-free skin.
What is Lactoferrin?
Lactoferrin is produced by a proprietary process that derives a bioactive complex from whey rich in the lactoferrin fraction. Milk’s many bioactive components have specific physiological effects to support a healthy complexion from the inside.
Lactoferrin is present naturally in our exocrine secretions: milk, tears, nasal exudate, bronchial mucus, gastrointestinal fluids and saliva. A primary function of lactoferrin is scavenging free iron in body fluids and inflamed sites to suppress free radical-mediated damage (much like an antioxidant) and diminish availability of the element to invading microbes.
How does it work?
Lactoferrin works in two ways. Firstly it inhibits the growth of propionibacterium which is present on most people’s skin and responsible for acne, spots and blemishes, thereby lessening the number of new skin irritants forming. Secondly its anti-inflammatory properties mean that the size of blemishes is reduced and the blemishes health quicker, resulting in a smoother complexion.
Can Lactoferrin help with scarring?
Yes - lactoferrin helps repair damaged cells caused by acne and spots, although it must be taken daily for a period of several weeks before you will see the longer term benefit.
Can Lactoferrin help to lighten my skin?
Yes, again, taken daily over a period of several weeks it will help even out skin tone and provide a natural skin-lightening benefit
Is PravENAC™ an acne cure?
The combination of these pure and natural nutraceutical ingredients in the PravENAC™ formulation helps reduce the symptoms of acne by reducing the bacteria associated with this debilitating skin condition through its anti-microbial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

help: clear skin Clinical Studies
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.
The median improvement was:
Consumer research study 1 – test market group
Evaluating lactoferrin as a dietary supplement for the support of a healthy complexion
44 participants, 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.
After stopping lactoferrin supplementation at week 8, the number of blemishes started to increase as measured by an increased number of blemishes at week 12.
Over 76% of the participants observed visible improvements, including fewer blemishes, a reduction in the amount of redness and less oiliness.

“Milk protein contains lactoferrin which reduces the growth of causative bacteria and improves skin inflammation. Taking a product that contains dairy peptides offers a natural and effective approach to treatment (of skin problems)..." Dr Sarah Brewer.
Dr Sarah Brewer - The Natural Health Guru says:
Although acne is often thought of as a teenage problem, a significant number of adults in their 30's and 40's are affected, too. Dairy peptides contain immune-boosting substances, such as lactoferrin, which can reduce the growth of the causative bacteria and improve skin inflammation. This is great news for those having to cope with the emotional and physical discomfort associated with recurrent skin blemishes. Taking a product that contains dairy peptides offers a natural and effective approach to treatment. Sadly, drinking milk itself does not work as milk contains additional hormones that can make acne worse."
