Changing sebum composition

I've been thinking and reading up on the two main sub-causes to acne which are hyperkeratinization and oil production. Either may contribute more than the other, which is probably why treating both is best, as accutane does. Now then, not even the doctors know what causes hyperkeratinization and EXACTLY the process occurs (which I don't believe for a second!)...But here is a thought...Why not change the composition of sebum? Sebum must have essential things for P. Acnes to eat. If we were to create a super lean jenny craigs version, it may help. It's not as great as stopping the skin-shedding abnormalities but we don't exactly how to do that, save a few drugs that don't work on everybody (azelex, accutane etc). Just a thought...
