Acne is the most common skin care problem seen by doctors. It occurs when pores become clogged by a combination of an oily substance produced by the skin called sebum, dirt, and dead skin cells.
Often, bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes, is present, which can contribute to the redness, swelling and pus that can accompany lesions.
More than 90 percent of world population is affected by acne at some point in their life. Around 20% of the US population is affected with acne every year with an approximate $5 billion market.
