Propionibacterium acnes is the bacteria responsible for inflamed acne breakouts. It is generally harmless but when pores become engorged with excess oil and dead skin cells, it creates an environment where P. acnes can excessively grow. This then triggers inflammation within the pore, creating a papule, pimple, or cyst. Reducing the P. acnes population is therefore an important step in controlling acne.
Teenagers and adults are often very self-conscious when skin breaks out, either as a result of acne and skin inflammation. Fortunately the cosmetics industry offers a number of ingredients to prevent, treat and target problematic skin.
