PCCA PLO-Diclogel Now Proven to Deliver Diclofenac Sodium into and Through Human Skin In Vitro!
PLO-DiclogelTM has excellent transdermal properties due to the lecithin, poloxamer and pracaxi oil complex.
This base has non-ionic characteristics which will tolerate the addition of acidic actives and salts. In addition, PLO-Diclogel is not affected by temperatures, and it can tolerate formulas with low pH (approximately 3) or high pH levels (approximately 10).
PLO-Diclogel is an excellent transdermal base option for dry and sensitive skin due to the minimal impact this product has on the skin’s lipids.
- Propylene Glycol-Free
- Less tack than traditional PLOs
- Recommended Active: PCCA Diclofenac Sodium USP (PCCA #30-1859)
Independently tested using modified Franz cell systems, PCCA’s new PLO-Diclogel base has proven that diclofenac sodium 10% penetrated into and through human skin and that the rate of absorption and the total percentage permeation is consistently higher with PLO-Diclogel than PLO, which translates to quicker onset and potentially increased efficacy.
