SummaryThe role of regular skin cleansing with soap or syndet in pre-acne is ill-defined. The intention of this study was to assess the relative value of an acidic syndet bar and a conventional soap bar in the prevention of acne lesions in acne-prone patients. In a randomized, open, comparative trial the three months' application of either an acidic syndet bar or a conventional soap to facial skin for 1 min each in the morning and in the evening was compared in 120 adolescents and young adults… Expand

Skin Cleansing as an Accompaniment to Acne Therapy

Routine facial washing has almost invariably been recognized or recommended as part of the treatment regimen and a recently completed study showed that a significantly decreasing trend in inflammatory lesions occurred in a panel of patients carrying out facial washing with a mild detergent-containing product.

TLDR
The skin pH seems to be open to long-standing changes according to the preferred washing habits which may also be of major influence on the composition of the cutaneous bacterial flora. Expand

Influence of the pH-value on the growth of Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnes in continuous culture.
TLDR
Findings substantiate the hypothesis that minor changes of the pH in the pH 5.5 to pH 6.0 range as to be induced by chemically neutral or alkaline skin cleansers on the human skin surface can increase the number of propionibacteria but not staphylococci remarkably due to the relative alkalinity by itself.

The production of inflammatory compounds by Propionibacterium acnes and other skin organisms
TLDR
Culture supernatants from four species of skin microorganisms were assayed for smooth muscle contracting substances which are indicative of inflammatory activity and at least three types of smooth muscle contraction substances were detected. Expand
