The pilosebaceous unit of the human skin consists of the hair follicle and the sebaceous gland. Within this “mini-organ”, the sebaceous gland has been neglected by the researchers of the field for several decades. Actually, it was labeled as a reminiscence of human development (“a living fossil with a past but no future”), and was thought to solely act as a producer of sebum, a lipid-enriched oily substance which protects our skin (and hence the body) against various insults. However, due to… CONTINUE READING
