Taurine Bromamine

Recommended Posts

Taurine Bromamine (TauBr) is a haloamine, which are diffusible gases that are likely to be produced during inflammation. [1] Topical Bromamine has been used to treat acne, and may be used to treat rosacea. [2] TauBr has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. [3] With the issue of antibiotic resistance, TauBr may be "considered a new therapeutic option in inflammatory acne." [4] This may also be true for rosacea.
