skin, papules, blackheads and whiteheads, nodules and pimples. The pathogenesis and existing treatments for acne is difficult. The severity of acne
varies greatly among the individuals and genetic background plays a vital role in its development. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acne) have been
recognized as pus-forming bacteria which triggers the inflammation in acne. The present study was conducted to evaluate antimicrobial activities of
Indian medicinal plants against the etiologic agents of acne vulgaris. Pathogenic factors include increased sebum production, hyper cornification of
pilosebaceous ducts, abnormal bacterial function, and production of inflammation. The therapy includes yearlong administration of synthetic
medicines, which can cause severe side effects. Hence, the less toxic and safe substances are needed for the treatment. Herbal or herbal based
medicines are safe alternatives in which extracts of natural origin are used as medicines. The aim of herbal therapy is to provide safe, efficient and
economical medicines so that the people can utilize them. In present review input of herbs in the treatment of acne is summarized. Different
databases were searched for retrieving all the medicinal plants with anti-acne activity.
