Over production of sebum causes the pores of the skin to become blocked and this is how the pimples, whiteheads and blackheads (comedones) of acne form. Clogged pores attract bacteria which then overgrow and cause infection. Eryacne 4% gets into the blackheads and blocks the growth of the bacteria, while at the same time reducing the amount of fatty acids that the bacteria live on. These actions of Eryacne 4% reduce growth of the bacteria that contributes to formation acne skin lesions and prevents the spread of infection.
