Thymus vulgaris (common thyme, English thyme, summer thyme, winter thyme, French thyme, or garden thyme) is a commonly used culinary herb but also an important aromatic plant for the treatment of acne. Common thyme is a Mediterranean perennial plant which is best suited to well-drained soils and full sun.
The Essential Oil of thyme , contains 20-54% thymol , which is powerfull antiseptic natural substance.Thyme essential oil also contains a range of additional compounds, such as p-cymene, myrcene, borneol and linalool.
Utilisation of thyme in different intermediary pharmaceutical forms ( teinture, extracts, essential oils, aso) and final dermatological products (ointments, creams,aso), is the best way for the natural treatment of acne. For a complex complementary treatment of this dermatological disease, we associate with very good therapeutical results, apitherapy (honey, propolis) and dietotherapy, for to realise a synergic effect.
