Not too long ago, a friend told me that they were using Preparation H to clear wrinkles under their eyes. This sounded strange to me, so I thought that I would investigate. How can a cream made for hemorrhoids give you clear skin? With a little research, I found astonishing facts about a substance called Bio-Dyne that is only in Canadian Preparation H.
About twenty years ago, Preparation H in the United States of America was the same as the Canadian product. They both contained two main ingredients, Bio-Dyne and shark liver oil. After just a few years on the market, the Food and Drug Administration reviewed the ingredients of Preparation H and decided that some ingredients needed to be changed. This was because of the shark liver oil, not the Bio-Dyne. The American manufactures of Preparation H were forced to change how they made their products, while the Canadian ingredients stayed the same. Now back in present day, the Canadian Preparation H is the only product with Bio-Dyne.
What does Bio-Dyne actually do? It is now known that Bio-Dyne is biologically active on skin cells. The Cincinnati Burn Unit and Oregon University School of Medicine have both done studies showing that Bio-Dyne speeds wound healing in burns. The process that the body uses to heal burns is identical to that of scars. By applying just a little Canadian Preparation H to an area of your body that has acne scars, it is easy to see results in just a week. While the results may not be permanent, it is still possible to enjoy clear and smooth skin.
