Product Labeling Index


Sulfacetamide Sodium is a sulfonamide with antibacterial activity while Sulfur acts as a keratolytic agent. Chemically Sulfacetamide Sodium is N-[(4-aminophenyl) sulfonyI]-acetamide, monosodium salt, monohydrate. The structural formula is:Each gram of Sulfacetamide Sodium USP 10% and Sulfur USP 5% contains 100 mg of Sodium Sulfacetamide USP and 50 mg of Sulfur USP in a cream containing: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Disodium Oleamido MEA Sulfosuccinate, Edetate Disodium, Fragrance, Glycerin, Glyceryl Monostearate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Methylparaben, PEG-100 Stearate, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Thiosulfate, Stearyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum.

Clinical Pharmacology

The most widely accepted mechanism of action of sulfonamides is the Woods-Fildes theory, which is based on the fact that sulfonamides act as competitive antagonists to para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), an essential component for bacterial growth. While absorption through intact skin has not been determined, sulfacetamide Sodium is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract when taken orally and excreted in the urine, largely unchanged. The biological half-life has variously been reported as 7 to 12.8 hours. The exact mode of action of Sulfur in the treatment of acne is unknown, but it has been reported that it inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes and the formation of free fatty acids.


Sulfacetamide Sodium and Sulfur cleanser is indicated in the topical control of acne vulgaris, acne rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis.


Sulfacetamide Sodium and Sulfur cleanser is contraindicated for use by patients having known hypersensitivity to sulfonamides, Sulfur or any other component of this preparation. Sulfacetamide Sodium and Sulfur cleanser is not to be used by patients with kidney disease.


Although rare, sensitivity to Sulfacetamide Sodium may occur. Therefore, caution and careful supervision should be observed when prescribing this drug for patients who may be prone to hypersensitivity to topical sulfonamides. Systemic toxic reactions such as agranulocytosis, acute hemolytic anemia, purpura hemorrhagica, drug fever, jaundice, and contact dermatitis indicate hypersensitivity to sulfonamides. Particular caution should be employed if areas of denuded or abraded skin are involved.FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Keep away from eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Keep container tightly closed.


Lf irritation develops, use of the product should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Patients should be carefully observed for possible local irritation or sensitization during long-term therapy. The object of this therapy is to achieve desquamation without irritation, but Sulfacetamide Sodium and Sulfur can cause reddening and scaling of the epidermis. These side effects are not unusual in the treatment of acne vulgaris, but patients should be cautioned about the possibility.
