Background: The presence of sebum on the face is responsible for both facial shine and the formation of comedonal and inflammatory acne lesions. Sebum control is a goal of many OTC skin care products; however, most currently available products function by absorbing sebum from the face rather than modulating its production. Objective: To demonstrate the effect of topical 2% niacinamide on sebum excretion rates and casual sebum production in Oriental and Caucasian populations. Methods: Separate… Expand

TLDR
The results of the study generally show that there is no significant difference between acne vulgaris and clindamycin 1%, but in the use of topical drugs there will be differences including depending on drug match and type of face so that it can affect the treatment process. Expand
Meeting the Challenges of Acne Treatment in Asian Patients: A Review of the Role of Dermocosmetics as Adjunctive Therapy
TLDR
This article reviews the evidence on dermocosmetics for AV and provides practice recommendations as discussed during the 4th Asia-Pacific Acne Leaders' Summit held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 7 and 8 February 2015. Expand
Dermocosmetics: beneficial adjuncts in the treatment of acne vulgaris
TLDR
Dermocosmetics are useful treatment adjuncts for acne and have been shown to improve the clinical signs of acne, reduce transepidermal water loss and modify sebum production, and this evidence supports the use of dermocos cosmetics in clinical practice. Expand
Moisturizing and anti-sebum secretion effects of cosmetic application on human facial skin.
TLDR
It could be concluded that the cosmetic application on human facial skin might provide some moisturizing effect and at the same time an anti-sebum effect, which favors the maintenance of good skin physiological function after applying skin care products. Expand

A double-blind controlled evaluation of the sebosuppressive activity of topical erythromycin-zinc complex
TLDR
It is indicated that sebum output is significantly reduced by the erythromycin-zinc complex, and this reduction is theoretically beneficial for the acneic patient. Expand
Topical Spironolactone Reduces Sebum Secretion Rates in Young Adults
TLDR
Topical spironolactone may be effective in the treatment of acne patients with high SSR, and none of the subjects experienced skin rash or signs of local irritation. Expand
Sebaceous gland secretion is a major physiologic route of vitamin E delivery to skin.
TLDR
Sebaceous gland secretion is a relevant physiologic pathway for the delivery of vitamin E to upper layers of facial skin and this mechanism may serve to protect skin surface lipids and the upper stratum corneum from harmful oxidation. Expand
Correlation of human in vivo and in vitro cutaneous antimicrobial factors.
TLDR
The presence of antimicrobial substances on human skin was investigated and skin lipids from the two groups of subjects were extracted with acetone and assayed against S. aureus, S. pyogenes, and C. albicans. Expand
On the mechanism of sebaceous secretion
TLDR
From knowledge of the time between synthesis and excretion of sebum, sebum production rates were calculated from the sebum content of punch biopsies and determined to agree with those measured by long-term absorption of se bum at the skin surface. Expand
The treatment of severe cystic acne with 13-cis-retinoic acid. Evaluation of sebum production and the clinical response in a multiple-dose trial.
TLDR
Clinical improvement, as judged by counting the nodulocystic lesions and measuring their greatest diameters, was noted in all three groups, and the most common clinical side effects were cheilitis, desquamation of the skin, and pruritus, but the side effectswere not severe enough to require interruption of treatment. Expand
Changes in long-term sebum production from isotretinoin therapy.
TLDR
The prolonged remission seen in patients with nodulocystic acne may be related in part to continued sebaceous gland inhibition in some patients, but it obviously is not the only actor responsible for the long-term improvement that is seen. Expand
Moisturizing effects of topical nicotinamide on atopic dry skin
TLDR
The effect of topical nicotinamide on atopic dry skin was examined and the results with the effect of white petrolatum in a left–right comparison study were compared. Expand
Human skin surface lipid film: an ultrastructural study and interaction with corneocytes and intercellular lipid lamellae of the stratum corneum
TLDR
The results showed that the SSLF formed an amorphous sheet of variable thickness on the skin surface instead of forming lipid droplets, as had been the usual assumption, and provided some new insights concerning the structure of the SSLf and its relationship with the SC. Expand
Analysis of human skin surface lipid during treatment with anti‐androgens
TLDR
Both sebum excretion rate and bacterial flora decreased during therapy but only the ratio of free fatty acid to total glyceride plus free fatty acids changed, falling in all groups during therapy. Expand
