Antibacterial Tests Against Acne in vitro, the Physical Stability and Patch Test using Cream Containing Ethyl p-methoxycinnamate Extracted from Kaempferia galanga L., Rhizoma

Background and Objective: An activity of certain bacterias is one of the causes of acne. Rimpang kencur (Kaempferia galanga L. ) has an antibacterial agent from compound ethyl p-methoxycinnamate (EPMC). The purpose of this study is to find out the antibacterial activity using EPMC against P. acne, S. aureus and S. epidermidis with the physical stability of the cream and its safety use as an antiacne cream. Materials and Methods: The antibacterial activity and minimum inhibitory concentration of EPMC are 0.3, 0.6, 1.2 and 2.4% was done using disc diffusion method and broth dilution test. Data obtained from in vitro test of bacterial activity was analyzed using descriptive analysis and Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with 99% (p

Authors: Madan S, Nehate C, Barman TK, Rathore AS, Koul V Abstract The study highlights the significance of co-application of bioactive components into liposomal gel formulations and their comparison to azithromycin for treatment of Acne. A Design of Experiments (DoE) approach was utilized to obtain optimized liposomal formulation encapsulating curcumin, with size and zeta potential of ∼100 nm and ∼14 mV respectively, characterized by DLS, HR-TEM, FESEM and AFM. The curcumin liposomal dispersion depicted excellent stability over the period of 60 days, which was further converted in gel form us...

Authors: Abanmi A, Al-Enezi M, Al Hammadi A, Galadari I, Kibbi AG, Zimmo S Abstract Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory skin disease in the Middle East, similar to other regions of the world. In the Middle East, there is a relatively high proportion of patients with darker pigmentation (Fitzgerald skin types III-VI) who are prone to developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) as a sequela of acne. Data are sparse on the frequency and characteristics of PIH throughout the world. What information is available indicates that pigmentation problems can be very bothersome for patients and are often quite long...
