Why hasn't the medical community begun to realize the great benefits of Vilantae already?

•Vilantae is an all natural treatment.

•There is no incentive to spend the vast resources of getting Vilantae approved as a drug, when it is not patentable.

Throughout history there have been many treatments promoted with unproven medical benefits. The promoters of these treatments tend to have either an emotional, physical, or financial stake in the treatment, and as a result they exaggerate the benefits.

With applied skin care products, or with any product for that matter, companies will exaggerate the benefits of their product. This stems from the fact that a corporation's purpose is to

"Maximize shareholder wealth."

In response to this, the medical industry is structured in a way that only treatments with hard evidence showing effectiveness will be supported. Hospitals do not have the time or money to verify which treatments work. Instead they look to a third party to verify a treatment's effectiveness. That third party is the FDA.

There are established protocols about how to show if a treatment is effective through clinical studies. Clinical studies are very expensive, and in order to compensate for these costs the FDA grants patent rights and other benefits to companies doing drug research.

There are restrictions about what qualifies as patentable. Drugs are not naturally occurring substances, but are man made, synthesized through chemical reactions in laboratories.

Natural treatments on the other hand, are composed of substances that are naturally occurring. By their very nature, they are not patentable. Companies are not granted any form of compensation for doing clinical studies on natural treatments. What is the end result?

Since the healthcare industry is run almost entirely by corporations and a free enterprise system, it leads to very little clinical research on natural treatments. On the other hand, in order for doctors and the medical industry to give support for a treatment, it generally must be FDA approved.

There exists a double barrier. Not only does the FDA require clinical studies, but it requires numerous studies, and a lengthy drawn out application process that takes many years and costs millions of dollars. That's why prescription drugs are incredibly expensive.

Can you recall a time when you went to the doctor and they recommended a natural treatment? Do you find it odd that the vast majority of recommended treatments by doctors are synthesized drugs that do not occur naturally?

It's very disproportionate. There exists a large biased against natural treatments in the industry.

Is there another possible reason why modern healthcare has an undying love for drugs? Doctors and hospitals are financially supported by drug sales. You have to visit the doctor in order to get a prescription, you have to go to the pharmacist in order to buy it, and you have to pay your health insurance every month as another way of covering those costs.

In addition, a large amount of the intellectual material in medical schools is based off research conducted and supported by corporations. Pharmaceutical companies are constantly fighting to gain support for their treatments by the medical industry. It leaves little room for small companies supporting natural treatments. But just because modern healthcare has problems, doesn't mean you have to let your skin fall victim to it.

Granted, there are many treatments on the market that are natural and do not work. Health fraud is something that one should be particularly careful about.

Vilantae on the other hand, is an extremely effective treatment that has hard evidence to support it. A clinical study was performed on d-Calcium Pantothenate by Dr. Lit-Hung Leung, M.D. (click here). Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) also has numerous real testimonies on acne message forums from people who have had success. These testimonials are unbiased and unique, because they are not supported by any company that has financial interest in the treatment.

We are conducting our own massive anecdotal study on Evolution-X Vilantae. Eventually, with enough supporting evidence it may be possible to gain sponsorship for more clinical studies through an academic sponsorship.

Keep in mind that Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) is still a new discovery. In another five years time, despite these challenges, Vilantae will find it's way into acceptance by the mainstream medical establishments. Why wait?

The following information in italics is taken directly from the Federal Food and Drug Administration's Website.

Why do some supplements have wording (a disclaimer) that says: "This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease"?

This statement or "disclaimer" is required by law (DSHEA) when a manufacturer makes a structure/function claim on a dietary supplement label. In general, these claims describe the role of a nutrient or dietary ingredient intended to affect the structure or function of the body. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and truthfulness of these claims; they are not approved by FDA. For this reason, the law says that if a dietary supplement label includes such a claim, it must state in a "disclaimer" that FDA has not evaluated this claim. The disclaimer must also state that this product is not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease," because only a drug can legally make such a claim.

Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) is not a drug. Its structure/function for the body is to stop the skin from releasing excess oil. The reduction in oil, consequently, leads to the reduction in acne. Acne is a common skin condition that affects over 80% of individuals at some point in their lives and should not be considered a disease.

However, the FDA specifically defines "noncystic" acne as not being a disease and "cystic" acne as being a disease. This is because cystic acne does permanent damage to the skin by leaving scars.

For that matter, anyone reading this website should note that B5 is only to be used for the purpose of treating noncystic acne. It is not intended to treat, cure, or prevent cystic acne, even though our research shows it is effective in doing so.

Disease claims require prior approval by FDA and may be made only for products that are approved drug products.

This approval requires numerous clinical studies and the expenditure of millions of dollars. Without any compensation for doing clinical research on natural non-patentable products, doing clinical studies on natural products is not feasible.

In response to this, we are conducting a massive anecdotal study on the effects of Evolution-X Vilantae. This is through the use of surveys conducted on everyone who orders our Vilantae for the prevention of acne.

Why applied products yield poor results.

Preventative Measures for Acne.

Applied Skin Products: Cleansers, Toners, and Topical Treatments.

-The idea behind traditional applied skin treatments is to clean the skin of the excess oil and kill the bacteria. These have their drawbacks however.

While they're very effective at killing bacteria, the problem is it's impossible to kill them all. They regenerate very quickly. Fast enough indeed that it's only feasible to slow them down. The problem is there's a limit to how often you can wash your skin. If you could wash your skin every hour it would be enough to prevent bacterial re-growth to the point acne wouldn't be possible. Unfortunately, these products would burn away your skin at the same the time.

The other target focus of applied products is skin oil. This is the main reason applied products work to the extent they do. By eliminating what the bacteria feed upon it reduces their re-growth. The problem is, again, it's impossible to successfully regulate skin oils this way.

Maintaining the correct amount of skin oil is the key to stopping acne.

Skin oil has a purpose, which is to keep your skin moisturized. Without it the skin becomes dry and crackly. Too much oil on the other hand, becomes a feasting ground for bacteria. The key to having a clear free face is to maintain the correct amount of oil at all times.

Applied products tend to over dry the skin by taking away too much oil. In response the skin actually releases more oil to make up for the difference. For instance, after using cleaners many people find their skin oily in less than an hour after cleansing. As soon as the oil's released again the bacteria go right back to work.

Unless you can stop the excess oil from being released in the first place, you're not going to stop the bacteria, and you're not going to stop acne.

In addition, drying out the skin will irritate things more when they're already being irritated enough. The constant jumping between being too oily and over dried is something that only puts more strain on your skin.

Counter: Then why are there so many people with acne who have dry skin?

Although oil is itself moisture (it's partially composed of water), the purpose of oil is to be a protective layer. It retains the moisture underneath the skin and makes it waterproof. You can have oily and dry skin at the same time. When you wash your face it will strip the layer of oil off and dry the skin underneath. When the cells don't have their waterproof layer, guess what happens懮they loose their water! Soap loves to eat up the water in skin cells along with the oil and grim.

Although oil is itself moisture, it is not the moisture that's comprised inside the actual skin cells. The water inside the cells is much harder to replace. When cells loose too much water they become enflamed, itchy, irritated, and red. Eventually they die and peel off in flakes, which happens to virtually everyone who uses applied products at some point or another.

How does the body respond to a bunch of irritated dried out skin cells? It produces more oil. This leads to the skin remaining oily on the surface, but the cells underneath staying dry and thirsty. That moisture takes time to replace.

The ideal applied skin product would be one that dissolves oil but does not remove the water from the cells themselves. Afterwards, to prevent the water in the cell from evaporating one could put lip balm or another water proofing substance all over one's face. Bacteria have more trouble eating lip balm. Still, this wouldn't work because it wouldn't stop the skin from releasing oil underneath.

Another thing to consider about different applied products is whether they actually effectively get rid of oil. Oil is like butter, and it doesn't come off easily. Soaps and cleansers are generally more effective at this, not toners and topical treatments.

Are your skin oils where they should be?

If you can randomly check for oil during different parts of the day and come up oil positive, then it's no wonder you have acne! You can tell if your skin is oily by looking in the mirror and changing angles until you can see shine. Feel your skin carefully and see if it feels oily. If the shine is from water, dry your skin thoroughly and then see if the shine is still there. If you have shoulder or back acne finding this angle is hard, so just see if the skin feels oily. Now rinse your skin thoroughly with water and then dry it thoroughly with a towel. Is the shine and oil still there? Most likely it is, because oil doesn't come off easily.

Now use a skin toner or topical treatment (if you're already using one) and apply it to your skin. Dry your skin thoroughly with a towel and see if the shine is still there? It probably is (toners and topical treatments are more for killing bacteria and changing the micro-texture of the skin).

If you use soap or a cleanser however, the shine should be gone if you look in the mirror afterwards. Be careful though, because it probably won't stay that way for long.

What can you do about the oil that appears within hours after washing? Nothing, because you just cleansed and cleansing again would over dry your skin!

Conclusion

Even though applied skin products have their flaws, they are still a whole lot more effective than doing nothing at all. For most people it was the only reasonable option for managing acne.

Vilantae by Evolution-X changes that.

Further evidence on why this is true? (that a lack of coenzyme A is the true cause for the skin over releasing oil.)

Consider the fact that Vilantae doesn't dry out the skin. It merely prevents the skin from releasing too much oil. Accutane (isotretinion) on the other hand, goes far beyond this by drying out the skin and taking away more oil than is necessary. That's because it does not target coenzyme-A production.

If coenzyme A did not play a large role in a person having excess oil, taking high quantities of Vilantae would be more likely to dry out the skin in addition to preventing excess oil.

~Cody Arceneaux
Age 34
"I began taking it, and at the end of the first bottle I knew this stuff really worked. My skin was clearing up and fewer pimples were forming. Even blackheads seem to reduce. And since fewer zits are coming up my face actually has time to get rid of old scars and blemishes before a new one takes its place. My skin keeps getting better and for the first time in over 10 years I think my skin is actually going to become perfect and stay that way. Nothing has ever reduced my acne this well."

~Matthew Theisen
Age 23
"Thank you i have spent no joke at least a million dollars in products, derm visits, and doc advice. I have had acne since the third grade and it was severe, as i got older it started to lighten up but only by about 5% then i found hope 8yrs later. Im now not embrassed to go outside or to look at guys. people think that i am pretty. I have never had that told to me. I never thought that something so simple could have such a big effect on my face. you have truely helped me and now i want to help you. Without this invention i would have never fulfilled my dream.

~Lisa Bermoy

"With a money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Americans usually look for the 'magic pill' that will cure everything and do it in a matter of hours. This supplement is no such thing, it takes time and patience. However, after a month, I've seen a drastic reduction of skin oils and I'm very happy with its results so far."

~Joshua Stateham
Age 21
"This is the best treatment I have ever used in the 17 years or so that I have suffered from acne. I have used every single over the counter and prescription medication available, including Accutane, retin-a, differin, and antibiotics. None of them were as effective and they all had more side effects."

~Miriam Kenanah,
Age 30
"Thanks again for your help, You guys definetly need to publicize your product more, I believe you could help many people. I have recommended several to your site, and I'm sure they will try it from the rave reviews I've given them. But do you know what? When you find a product that works, it's like a huge weight being lifted off your shoulders."

~Devin H,
Age 21
"My oiliness has been reduced by about 75%. I have seborrheic dermatitis and have tried EVERYTHING short of Accutane. This works very well to dry up the oil and with only minimal side effects. I was skeptical, but I'm very glad I gave it a try."

~Tim Morrow,
Age 33
