Product Information

  • Description

    Clindamycin 1% is a topical lotion that serves as an antibiotic to combat mild to moderate cases of acne vulgaris. This medication is polymyxin-resistant and reverses resistance to most beta-lactam antibiotics. Its strength lies in its classification as a lincosamide antibiotic, which inhibits bacterial growth. Clindamycin 1% interferes with the synthesis of protein, a fundamental process needed for bacteria to survive. It binds to the bacterial 50S ribosomal subunit, disrupting the linkage of amino acids, which is crucial for forming bacterial cell walls and conducting cellular processes. This action ultimately leads to the demise of the bacteria. An added benefit of its topical formulation is that it has a numbing effect, making it effective in reducing inflammation and pain caused by acne, especially when it comes to inflammatory acne lesions. In summary, Clindamycin 1% is not only an effective tool in inhibiting bacterial growth but also reduces inflammation, making it a powerful weapon in the treatment of acne vulgaris.
