Treat Acne with Coconut Oil and Nano-Bombs
A natural product found in both coconut oil and human breast milk lauric acid
-- shines as a possible new acne treatment thanks to a bioengineering graduate
student from the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. The student developed
a smart delivery system published in the journal ACS Nano in March capable of
delivering lauric-acid-filled nano-scale bombs directly to skin-dwelling bacteria
(Propionibacterium acnes) that cause common acne.
