Pimplex is a product of SBL's Research and Development and is a combination of well proven drugs of homeopathy therapeutics which treats Acne Vulgaris (Pimples) and Comedons (Blackheads). It prevents pitting and scarring on face. The mixture of blackheads, whiteheads and pink or reddish spots caused by Acne Vulgaris occurs mostly on the face, the back of the neck, the upper back and chest. Acne affects young people of both sexes but tends to be more common in boys.
It starts in adolescence because this is when there are great increases in production of hormones from the sex organs and from the adrenal glands. Under their influence and particularly that of the androgens, the oil-releasing sebaceous glands in the skin become overactive. They release too much sebum causing a condition called Seborrhoea (overaction of sebaceous glands)
