LOL, actually for some people that very well may be the case. There are studies that have shown that some acne sufferers skin lacks that ability to produce Isotretinoin, otherwise known as 13-cis retinoic acid.

Since our Livers are responsible for the enzyme needed for this conversion and Zinc plays a role in it's production too, hopefully it's a bit easier to understand why certain cures work for certain people!

Thanks =)
