Scientists at New Zealand based biotechnology company Quantec Ltd have filed a patent on a new discovery related to acne prevention.It has discovered its patented ingredient IDP, which was developed by the company in 2009, fights bad bacteria on the skin’s surface while maintaining the health of the skin’s microbiome.IDP is sourced from New Zealand cow’s milk.While most of the time bad bacteria within the microbiome will not cause problems, sometimes the bad bacteria can cause infection. If bad bacteria multiply, they can gain a foothold and can invade other places on the body where it doesn’t normally reside. This is what is happening when you get pimples on your skin,James talks with Dr Rod Claycomb Managing Director, Quantec and Epiology.
