Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy is pleased to announce our new base incorporating the latest thinking in customized pharmacy compounding.
We refer to this base as the “Patchless Patch,” an innovative film-forming gel. This base forms a film using natural polymers and provides excellent adhesive properties. Once Occlusaderm® is applied, although water soluble, it is impermeable and oil-resistant.
Occlusaderm® can be used as a base by itself or as an ingredient in a formula. Used alone, a film is formed on the skin which can then be “peeled” off. Using this technology combined with other bases and we have properties aiding in the penetration of active pharmaceutical ingredients to our current bases.
Many drugs can be incorporated into Occlusaderm® and many disease states will benefit from the unique properties of Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy’s newest base. Some of the uses for this base are listed below:
1. Numbing creams
2. Facial Masks
3. Acne Preparations
4. Skin whitening formulas
5. Scar preparations
6. Wound Care
7. Hair Growth
