- Other Ingredients:
Nicotinamide is a water-soluble component of the vitamin B complex group. In vivo, nicotinamide is incorporated into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). NAD and NADP function as coenzymes in a wide variety of enzymatic oxidation-reduction reactions essential for tissue respiration, lipid metabolism, and glycogenolysis.
Nicotinamide has demonstrated anti-inflammatory actions that may be of benefit in patients with acne including, but not limited to, suppression of antigen-induced lymphocytic transformation and inhibition of 3',5'- cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase. Nicotinamide has been demonstrated to block the inflammatory actions of iodides known to precipitate or exacerbate acne.
Nicotinamide lacks the vasodilator, gastrointestinal, hepatic and hypolipemic actions of nicotinic acid or niacin. As such, nicotinamide has not been shown to produce the flushing, itching and burning sensations of the skin, as is commonly seen when large doses of nicotinic acid or niacin are administered orally.
Zinc has been shown to inhibit the inflammatory polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis in acne patients. Zinc has also demonstrated an inhibitory effect on the lipase of the three Propionibacterium species found in human pilosebaceous follicles. Patients with acne have been shown to have significantly lower serum zinc levels than matched healthy controls.
Azelaic Acid is a dietary constituent (e.g., in whole grain cereals and animal products) that has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity against Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis. The antimicrobial action may be attributable to inhibition of microbial cellular protein synthesis. A normalization of keratinization leading to an anticomedonal effect of azelaic acid may be also contributed to its topical use for treatment of acne vulgaris.
Copper is an essential trace mineral in human nutrition. Although rare, copper deficiency has been induced by supplemental zinc therapy.
Folic acid serves as an essential cofactor of the biosynthesis of thymidine and purine nucleotides required for normal cellular DNA synthesis. Deficiencies of folic acid have been demonstrated to occur in some cutaneous disorders.
