Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% - Sulfur 5% Cleansing Cloths
Facial Cleansing Cloths
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 cloth of Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% - Sulfur 5% Cleansing cloths is coated with a cleanser-based formulation. Each gram of this cleanser-based formulation contains 100 mg of Sodium Sulfacetamide and 50 mg of Sulfur. The cleanser base consists of: aloe vera gel, butylated hydroxytoluene, cetyl alcohol, disodium EDTA, disodium oleamido MEA sulfosuccinate, glycerol stearate and PEG 100 stearate, green tea extract, magnesium aluminum silicate, methyl paraben, purified water, propyl paraben, sodium cocoyl isethionate, stearyl alcohol, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium thiosulfate, white petrolatum and xanthan gum.
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.
