Niacinamide is also known as Vitamin B3 or Nicotinamide. Research articles have demonstrated the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of Vitamin B3.
Topical application of Niacinamide have shown it to be superior to antibiotics such as clindamycin - with no side-effects (unlike antibiotics).
Niacinamide face cleansing pads with water-soluble microbeads and pore-cleansing action are now available on Amazon.com
Here is an article highlighting its efficacy:

Nicotinamide is definitely useful for acne control. Its anti inflamatory effect works great on pustules, and studies have also demonstrated it can reduce sebum production, similar to Accutane. However, I think you may have made a mistake when you mentioned its antibacterial effect, which so far as I know, doesnt exist.

I wrote a post about using nicotinamide recently. Take a look
NICOTINAMIDE

If you know of any articles or studies demonstrating nicotinamide's antibacterial effect, please leave a comment. I would love to be proven wrong

So, this is what I'm trying.

Clearasil 3 in 1 Wash
Minocycline 100mg capsule (1 a day)
Nicam 4% Nicotinamide Gel
Jojoba Oil; for flake control and moisture (Love it)
Aloe Vera in the morning and Sudocrem in the evening

3000-4000mg of Vit C
50mg Chelated Zinc
Omega Oil Capsules

Working quite well on the acne but red marks are my worst enemy!!
Only started the zinc, vitamin c and jojba recently, but I think theyre working well.

Is this the article you mean?
It doesn't actually say that nicotinamide is antibacterial, it says that it is more effective at controlling acne than clindamycin, an antibiotic. This means that it's anti-inflammatory and sebum reducing effect are as effective as clindamycin's antibacterial effect.
So, this is what I'm trying.

Clearasil 3 in 1 Wash
Minocycline 100mg capsule (1 a day)
Nicam 4% Nicotinamide Gel
Jojoba Oil; for flake control and moisture (Love it)

acnebuster - I compared your ip location with the company you seem to be spamming (both here and other places where acne sufferers gather). You and they seem to be in the same town. Huh.
It is like a reason that picks you up
And places you
Where you always wanted
To be.
