It took many years but today we have a patented product!
My kids did not have acne because we worked together to invent skin products that would heal the cellular disease happening at the level of the "intelligent" infundibulum. (See below) Yes, all other products on the market do not treat the source of the problem they only treat the result of the acne disease.
We used the HEALING miracle & science of how certain minerals from the sea work coupled with other science secrets that have been shown in the research to heal the deepest layer of cells where all the problems with acne begin. We are not treating the affect of the problem, we are treating THE PROBLEM itself.
We have coupled our miracle healing serum and cleanser with our excellent probiotic "secret formula" that will assist the gut lining in the small intestine. Junk food, over use of antibiotics, birth control pills, hormone imbalances and stress will inflame the lining of the walls in the gut making the absorption of nutrients compromised which will them make acne much worse!
When this happens the gut normal mixture of good to bad bacteria begins to become "out of balance" and the bad bacteria begins to get a foot-hold and win or TAKE OVER the battle and the gut. A healthy gut has the important job to heal imbalances in skin cells and body functions.
The Willeford kids grew up on the beach and own more bathing suits, sun glasses, hats and flip flops than anything else and they spent most of their time in the water or on the beach! This is when we realized acne was cured when prolonged time in the salt water cleansed the cells at a deep level.
Ocean Seas Dermatology acne formulas were created years ago when my kids were teenagers! Getting to market took some time due to patents, FDA trials and international patents. Created by a Scientific Medical Homeschool Family with the motto
"Working for a Dream Leaving A Legacy!"
Having acne is terrible in general for young people but it seems to be even worse when you have to put on a bathing suit for water sports. Who likes exposing skin that has acne all over it and most makeup products can't hold up to the surf!
Sunscreens seem to irritate acne but the ocean water seems to ALWAYS heal it! With this observation we set out to "bottle" the ocean and couple it with an FDA approved evidenced-based acne pharmaceutical solution and ingredients. We currently are working on a sunscreen that will not harm the body with nasty chemicals and prevent the burning and irritation of the acne inflamed and irritated skin.
When acne began to appear on my kids skin we began to work towards the healing cure! Being a nurse practitioner I have seen my share of depressed acne clients. I have also been frustrated with the options available to offer my young patients knowing the complete failure of medical options, and current products on the market. The exception could be possibly the pharmaceutical Accutane but this drug comes with extreme side-effects that can be life altering.
The medical disease Acne vulgaris is a multifactorial inflammatory disease affecting the pilosebaceous follicles. The pilosebaceous unit is composed of epidermal cells lining the hair follicle and the sebaceous gland. Each hair follicle is associated with one or more sebaceous glands.
The infundibulum communicates directly with the epidermis and extends to the opening of the sebaceous gland. In a normal follicle, sebum is secreted from the sebaceous glands and carries desquamated keratinocytes from the follicular epithelium up the follicular canal toward the infundibulum. Keratinocytes are shed as single cells and are moved to the follicle lumen and removed. In acne vulgaris, however, keratinocytes hyperproliferate and are shed as a group of cells rather than individual cells which obstruct the neck of the follicle.
"Acne vulgaris develops when the infundibulum becomes occluded, trapping sebum, shed cells, and bacterial products, and leading to inflammation."
The use of synthetic sea water or natural sea water for the treatment of acne has never been specifically studied. However, despite the lack of evidence of demonstrated benefit there are physiologic reasons to anticipate effectiveness. There are many areas of commonality of this treatment for acne with well understood physiologic and disease processes. The most pertinent of these are keratinocyte hyperproliferation and the subsequent inflammation.
Today, all my kids so far have graduated from the science department at Coastal Carolina University. Brea, graduated with a Biology Degree and Sierra with a Biochemistry Degree. Both girls are attending medical school and "who knows" down the road they will certainly be able to provide excellent skin care and treatment!
Logan, my son is physics and biology and Marena starts in the fall. Inventing and solving problems is what they have grown up to understand and innovation is a great ways to use science degrees and apply the knowledge to innovative start-ups that solve problems for people!
Ocean Seas Dermatology is the first start-up company my kids have had "personal" input into. They were using the products and testing on themselves long before we started clinical trials and went to market.
It is our hope that our skin company and products will heal your skin and return to you the life you want to live as a teenager and college student! We know when your face doesn't look good you do not feel good about yourself! We totally get it!
It is our plan to continue to expand our Derm Company with more skin care, nutritional, makeup and sunscreen products that will effectively treat all types of skin conditions and diagnosis specifically formulated for young people who cannot pay for high dollar, high end fancy skin care that doesn't work. We are scientist who look for the natural cures that WORK and are affordable to every teen but most importantly will do no harm to the body.
