Zilch Acne Formula by Dr. Vivian Tam is a 100% natural, Chinese Medicine herbal tablet designed to clear stubborn adult acne.

The patented formula of 17 potent herbal ingredients works on fighting the root cause of the skin disease, promoting skin health from the inside out. Available 1st May 2017. 


Zilch Acne Formula works in several ways, providing long term results for acne sufferers.
Firstly, it works on reducing inflammation, reducing the soreness, redness and uncomfortable swelling of larger cysts and nodules.
On a similar level, it works on removing heat and toxicity from the body. In Chinese Medicine, an imbalance of heat in the body can cause skin breakouts. A perfect analogy is the Earth’s core getting too hot, causing eruptions on the surface (volcanoes!).
Blood circulation in Chinese Medicine is integral to the optimum wellbeing of one’s health, and promoting healthy blood circulation for skin health is no exception. When there is blood stagnation (blockages) in the body, swelling and inflammation and build-up of toxicity can occur. To better understand this concept, imagine a blockage in a car engine – eventually this blockage will cause the car to overheat, and “blow up”, similar to the body accumulating inflammation and toxicity, causing breakouts. Ingredients in Zilch Acne Formula promote and boost blood circulation to stop these deeper nodules from occurring in the skin, and promotes skin healing.


It all started from a skin problem of my own. I suffered from Acne as a teenager and into my 20’s with no luck in finding a real, long term solution to my problems. When I started working as a Doctor of Chinese Medicine, I had access to all the Chinese herbal ingredients my heart could desire (yes, herbs are kind of a love and passion for me!), and I started treating myself. Within weeks my skin was almost completely clear, and years later, my skin is still in great health. This was what led me to focus on the skin health side of things. My passion in Chinese Medicine and skin health led me to research everything I could know about Acne and it’s causes.

Fast forward a few years, I feel blessed every day to be able to help people with acne that have often exhausted all other options to try and clear up their skin. Chinese Medicine is about treating the person for their disharmony or pattern, and with thorough consultation, I was noticing that most of the patients that present with hormonal, adult, large, cystic acne were all showing a very similar pattern. I started to feel very excited about all the people I could help with this stubborn skin disease and the dream of Zilch Acne Formula was born; the mission was simple- to help everyone achieve real results in clear skin, naturally, without the use of harsh chemicals or drugs.
I spent the next 18 months developing and refining the formula, and getting it TGA approved. When the approval was granted, the dream became a reality.
