Brief Summary:
Antioxidants have been studied for their abilities to combat reactive oxygen species in a multitude of conditions. This study aims to assess whether the botanical dietary supplement 'Halo Beauty Kiwi Booster' (HBKB), taken orally daily for 8 weeks, can assist with Acne vulgaris as well as skin hydration and quality of life for those with acne.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acne Vulgaris Acne Dietary Supplement: HBKB Capsule Other: HBKB Supplement Vehicle Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The study will be a 2-armed investigational trial with one group receiving botanical dietary supplement and one placebo group provided with the similar supplement vehicle. The trial will be double-blind, randomized, parallel-group study. The investigational group will receive the botanical dietary supplement 'Halo Beauty Kiwi Booster' (HBKB), to be taken orally daily for 8 weeks. Control group participants will receive the HBKB botanical dietary supplement vehicle as a placebo to be taken orally daily for 8 weeks.Participants will have their skin assessed

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Botanical Impact on hydration in those with Acne Vulgaris [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    To prospectively appraise changes in stratum corneum hydration levels in persons with Acne Vulgaris (AV) after dietary supplementation with a compilation of botanical antioxidants.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Botanical Impact on Acne Vulgaris [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    To prospectively appraise changes in Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) of Facial AV after dietary supplementation with a compilation of botanical antioxidants.Scale is 0-4 (0 - clear and 4 - severe)

  2. Botanical Impact on Quality of Life in those with Acne [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    To prospectively appraise changes in AV related quality-of-life (AVQoL) after dietary supplementation with a compilation of botanical antioxidants.
