No Colostrum Does Not Cause Acne

Many of the patients we treat at our Acne Clinic have questions about what causes acne. Some have asked us does colostrum causes acne? Colostrum is the early milk of either humans or cows and other animals that have recently given birth. Though it is generally uncommon for non-infants to consume colostrum it is thought that colostrum can help treat acne. This is done by using bovine colostrum which is high in lactoferrin to treat acne symptoms.

Colostrum does not cause acne but using it to treat acne might be an option for you. Consider speaking with a member of our team to help you understand your acne symptoms. We are here to help you find the ideal treatment for your skin.

What Causes Acne?

Acne develops when hair follicles on our skin become clogged. Clogging occurs when either dead skin or oil enters the pores. Dietary choices and personal hygiene often have little to do with acne development. There are a variety of factors that can cause acne development.

Some factors that affect acne production are stress, medication, hormonal changes and in some cases diet. Hormonal changes such as pregnancy and birth can contribute to acne symptoms. Mothers produce colostrum after birth. This can contribute to acne but the hormonal change, not the colostrum, is the culprit behind acne production.
