A composition is disclosed which when topically applied is effective in the treatment of acne and skin disorders. While the etiology of the treatment is complex, it is believed that the composition reduces the rate of sebum secretion, inhibits the formation of keratin and fatty acids in the pilosebaceous ducts and is antimicrobial to the bacteria normally found in said ducts. The treatment is accomplished quicker and stimulates the production of collagen in the healing of scars if the composition is sonicated into the affected area with ultrasonic vibrations.
