How do blackheads and pimples form?

To understand the properties a substance needs to combat acne and inflammation, it's important to first grasp how blackheads and pimples form.


Micro-inflammations within the skin, invisible to the naked eye, are considered triggers for acne. These small inflammations set the acne process in motion.



This refers to the skin producing excess sebum, often due to hormonal changes, but also due to improper diet or stress.


Hyperkeratosis and Plug Formation

Simultaneously, the outer layer of the skin thickens, and dead skin cells aren't shed quickly enough. This leads to clogging of the sebaceous gland ducts, resulting in open and closed blackheads and pimples.

Visible Inflammations

The overproduction of sebum and reduced flow from the sebaceous gland create ideal conditions for bacteria to thrive. Particularly, Cutibacterium acnes can spread easily. The immune system responds to the resulting bacterial byproducts, leading to visible inflammation in the form of red pimples.
