Anti-Acne Activity of Toothpaste ? An Emerging Pimple Treatment


Abstract

Author(s): Preeti Dharmik and Ashok Gomashe

Acne may be treated with a combination of remedies including over-the-counter skin care, acne medications, and chemical or laser procedures. All these treatments are comparatively costlier. Hence in the current study, attempts are being made to search for new and cheaper remedy for acne. Here Anti acne activity of various toothpastes was studied against well proven acne causing microbes viz., Propionibacterium acne (n=20) and Staphylococcus aureus (n=30). For this purpose 5 different toothpastes viz., Colgate, Close-up, Pepsodent, Miswak and Cholgate visible white were selected and their antimicrobial activity were checked. Among all the toothpastes, Colgate showed promising results. Data from topical applications in human subjects revealed that this treatment is effective only against white headed pimples .Study also concluded that white pastes have more anti acne property than colored pasts or gels. The MIC of Colgate was found to be 1.25g/ml against both the acne causing microbes
