The brown seaweed, Sargassum polycystum C. Agardh, was evaluated as a potential agent against acne vulgaris. The antioxidant and in vitro antibacterial properties of four methanol fractions (F1–F4) obtained through column chromatography were studied. F1 showed the highest activity against Propionibacterium acnes with minimal inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations of 0.25 and 0.50 mg mL−1, respectively. Additionally, treatment of P. acnes lipase with F1 resulted in the highest lipase… CONTINUE READING
