Acne is one of the most widespread conditions in the world, affecting about 650 million people globally. It is common in teenagers (almost 90%) and sometimes persists into adulthood, affecting both females than males, regardless of ethnicity. By age 40, 1% of men and 5% of women still have lesions. Several prominent groups, including the Global Alliance to Improve Outcomes in Acne, have published comprehensive treatment recommendations, but efficiency has barely improved since the ancient Egyptians and Greeks began using sulfur to tame acne [W].
The market for persons afflicted with acne is estimated at $2 Billion for prescriptions and up to $11 Billion when over-the-counter remedies are included.
