Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% - Sulfur 4% Cleansing Pads In a vehicle containing Green Tea and Aloe Rx Only

DESCRIPTION: Sodium sulfacetamide is a sulfonamide with antibacterial activity while sulfur acts as a keratolytic agent.
Chemically sodium sulfacetamide is N-[(4-aminophenyl) sulfonyl]-acetamide, monosodium salt, monohydrate.
The structural formula is:


Each pad of Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% - Sulfur 4% Cleansing Pads are coated with a cleanser-based formulation. Each gram of this cleanser-based
formulation contains 100 mg of Sodium Sulfacetamide and 40 mg of Sulfur. The cleanser base consists of: purified water, sodium cocoyl isethionate
disodium oleamido MEA sulfosuccinate, green tea extract, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, glycerol stearate and PEG 100 stearate methyl paraben, propyl
paraben, butylated hydroxytoluene, aloe vera gel, sodium thiosulfate, disodium EDTA, magnesium aluminum silicate, xanthan gum, sodium methyl cocoyl
taurate, white petrolatum.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: The most widely accepted mechanism of action of sulfonamides is the Woods-Fildes theory, which is based on the fact
that sulfonamides act as competitive antagonists to para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), an essential component for bacterial growth. While absorption
through intact skin has not been determined, sodium sulfacetamide is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract when taken orally and excreted in
the urine, largely unchanged. The biological half-life has variously been reported as 7 to 12.8 hours. The exact mode of action of sulfur in the treatment of
acne is not known, but it has been reported that it inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes and the formation of free fatty acids.
