In 2010, Dr Wu released 3 highly succesful BB Creams called the Dr Wu VC Whitening / Diamond / Perfect Cover BB Cream, which was an instant hit and appeared on various taiwanese talk shows.
This year, they will be releasing two new BB Creams to cater for women of different needs.

This is a mineral based, oil control, anti-acne, soothing, hydrating, whitening, UV protecting BB cream. It uses the patented french anti-acne formula – Ac.net.
AC Net contains oleanolic acid, which inhibits 5-A reductase to fight hyper seborrhea, while the NDGA contained is a cell growth regulator that inhibitshyperkeratosis (excessive build-up of skin cells on the surface of the skin) and inflammation. The AC NET is formulated in an osmotic gel, which also helps to control bacterial growth.
Olive leaf extract is also included in this compound and has superb anti-inflammatory as well as antimicrobial properties, containing oleuropein, 11-demethyl oleuropein , 7,11-dimethyl ester of oleoside, ligustroside, oleuroside and unconjugated secoiridoid.

It also contains tea-tree oil, Radix Glycyrrhiza (甘草), witch hazel to help control the sebum secretion for 8 hours.
2. Dr Wu Extreme Hydrate BB Cream
This BB Cream uses the NASHA modified Hyaluronic Acid.
NASHA (Stabilized Non-Animal Hyaluronic Acid) is the patented technology which is used in all of Restylane range of products. The hyaluronic acid is stabilised to create a long-acting substance. The stabilisation involves the binding together of the HA molecules in a network.
Without this modification the hyaluronic acid would only stay in the tissue for days. Conversely, too much modification can affect of the HA’s most important properties negatively. This property is its biocompatibility, which means the ability of a substance to be body-friendly so that it does not cause allergic reactions.
The NASHA gel is therefore only stabilized by approximately one per cent which gives a long lasting effect as well as minimal tissue disturbance.
NASHA’s properties also allow it to be integrated naturally into the body so that nutrients, hormones and other important substances in the body can pass through the gel.
Unlike several other HA preparations, Q-Med’s NASHA is based on a non-animal (biosynthetic) raw material. This gives a very high degree of purity which means that the risk of allergic reactions and the transmission of infectious substances are minimal. These are problems which can occur in products of animal origin.
Use of NASHA technology is clinically proven, with nearly 10 million treatments worldwide and an excellent safety profile of 1 in 20,000 patients experiencing an adverse event.
Also included in it’s formulation is natural algae extracts (天然藻類萃取) and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid 水解玻尿酸. These 3 ingredients work together to bring intensive hydration to the skin for hours.
In addition, natural Japanese Camellia Japonica extracts. The leaf has been shown in vitro to be potent antioxidant and also able to inhibit the expression of collagen-depleting MMP-1 when applied to human fibroblast cells. It also provides numerous benefits for the skin ranging from moisturizing to wound healing.
Only a pearl size would be able to cover the entire face. It’s ultra light and moist formula spreads easily on the skin, doesn’t clog pores, doesn’t leave any stickiness – and hydrates your skin for hours!
