Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy is a proud member of Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA). Because of our commitment to quality, we only use special micronized progesterone from PCCA. Compounding pharmacies that are not members of PCCA do not have access to this high quality ingredient.

- Above and beyond USP standards

- Particle Size (100% <10 microns and 95-99% <5 microns)
- From an FDA-Registered Facility that is GMP Compliant
- 14 Checks and Analyses Are Performed on Each Chemical Lot
- Bio-identical plant based ingredient (Derived from Yam)
Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy understands the importance of working with pharmacopoeial grade hormone powders that consistently meet potency standards. PCCA’s Special Micronized Progesterone meets these high standards but also excels in an additional category: particle size. PCCA’s Special Micronized Progesterone is 99% less than 5 microns. Particle size is very important in drug delivery, regardless if it is transdermal, oral, sublingual, vaginal or rectal. Consider this quote from the text Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery Systems by Howard Ansel and Nicholas Popovich: "When a drug particle size is reduced the total surface area created is increased...this generally results in an increase in the rate of dissolution and increased therapeutic response has been reported for a number of drugs."
When it comes to quality, nobody beats PCCA. We are happy to use Special Micronized Progesterone in our formulations. Give us a call or e-mail today to discuss your formulation options.
