Antibacterial Cleanser is designed for acne clients with normal to oily skin. It provides maximum bacterial control against Propionibacterium acnes and other undesirable bacteria and their acne promoting lipases without causing dryness. The specific extract from cinnamon bark inhibits the action of 5 alpha reductase, including its acne promoting actions in the sebaceous glands, as well as cyclooxygenase-2 (cox-2) a known pro-inflammatory enzyme.
