Topical Delivery Systems
Providing characterization solutions for topical delivery products.
Topical delivery systems are important in both the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries where actives need to be effectively delivered onto or through the skin. Topical delivery systems include emulsions, gels, sprays, foams and transdermal patches.
Malvern’s range of analytical instruments and expertise in Topical delivery systems can be used to:
- Reduce formulation time
- Ensure formulation stability
- Verify product performance and consumer acceptance
- Characterize actives and carrier systems
- Optimize manufacturing conditions
- Evaluate device efficiency
- Monitor quality.
Since physical properties depend on dispersed phase characteristics such as particle size, shape and zeta potential, it is important that these properties are measured and controlled to produce efficient skin delivery and transdermal carrier systems, such as liposomes.
Topical delivery of actives to the skin is very much dependent on the rheological properties of the product, which can vary depending on the carrier system.
