Dermatological Compounding 101

Dermatological compounding is one of the most popular forms of pharmaceutical compounding available.  The reason for this is that compounding has such a wide variety of current and potential uses.  The types of medicines that can be adapted to include dermatological standards are:

  • Creams
  • Lotions
  • Emulsions
  • Gels
  • foams
  • Suspensions

The benefits of dermatological compounding are the exact same as other forms of compound pharmaceuticals.  These products however, are applied directly to the skin for absorbtion rather than other types of administration.  They will be compounded to make either an ointment or a paste to be applied to the skin.
