Acne vulgaris is a common skin condition with a high prevalence in teenagers and young adults. It is a condition of the pilosebaceous follicles, resulting in comedones, papules, pustules or nodules which occur primarily on the face, but which may also present on other areas of the body. Although acne is not physically disabling, its psychological impact is highly significant, contributing to low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. As a result, there is a significant demand for effective acne therapies.
