Compounding Procedure

  1. Using an appropriate size mortar and pestle levigate API with solvent (Ethoxy Diglycol).
  2. Add Organic phase and mix until uniformly dispersed or dissolved.
  3. Add Hydrophilic phase by geometrical method to the mix of A and B. Mix well until a homogenous gel is formed.

Compounding Tips

  • Store Organic phase at room temperature, and Hydrophilic phase in the refrigerator. NOTE: Hydrophilic is made of a thermoreversible polymer. It is solid at room temperature, and liquefies at refrigerated temperature.
  • Warm Hydrophilic phase to about 10°C prior to compounding to improve the rate of the gelling process.
  • Complete dispersion or dissolution of API in Organic phase is important before incorporating Hydrophilic in order to obtain best results.
