Main ingredients of Oil-Free Cream Papulex
4% Nicotinamide: (Niacinamide) This natural molecule derived from Vitamin B3 contains anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation, and is not associated with bacterial resistance. Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide or nicotinic acid amide, is the water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3. It has been increasingly studied for many different indications in the field of dermatology, but more research is needed to clarify its value. Studies showed that Nicotinamide is as effective as clindamycin gel in reducing acne severity without inducing bacterial resistance.
Patented ABA Technology: Exclusively found in Papulex™ products, it stops Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria from attaching to skin cells and reduces infection.
1% Zinc PCA: A combination of Zinc and L-PCA that is produced naturally in the body, this ingredient regulates oil production. It also decreases sebum production rate significantly after 28 days, reducing skin oiliness and shine. Papulex cream contains Zinc PCA that helps in regulating sebum production. Clinical studies demonstrated that 1% Zinc PCA lead to a significant decrease of sebum rate 28 days after twice daily application.
Zinc, both in elemental or in its salt forms, has been used as a therapeutic modality for centuries. Topical preparations like zinc oxide, calamine, or zinc pyrithione have been in use as photoprotecting, soothing agents or as active ingredient of antidandruff shampoos. Its use has expanded manifold over the years for a number of dermatological conditions including infections (leishmaniasis, warts), inflammatory dermatoses (acne vulgaris, rosacea), pigmentary disorders (melasma), and neoplasias (basal cell carcinoma).
