Studies have shown that burdock root is able to inhibit the growth of the acne causing P. acnes bacteria which is found naturally in sebum. Also, burdock is rich with essential fatty acids, which contribute in regenerative processes in the skin. Burdock root is also able to regulate the function of the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for sebum production; the natural oil which builds inside clogged pores to create acne blemishes
