Recipharm has the knowledge required to develop semi-solid products with sufficient stability, low-risk of adverse reactions and the desired therapeutic effects.
Topical and transdermal products are typically in the form of creams, gels, lotions, ointments, pastes or sprays.
All these methods of delivery are physiochemically complex systems and it is vital that you have a thorough understanding of how these formulations work and their complexities during development.
Performing characterisation work, including rheology and permeability screening on skin and synthetic membranes, is also essential.
It is also important to consider the way the product will be administered, as topical and transdermal products can be applied in different ways to achieve unique effects. There are also a number of special administration routes where liquid or semi-solid dosage forms are needed.
