  • Advanced Base: FoamaDerm™ is designed for enhanced drug delivery through the skin. Our studies showed better diclofenac release from FoamaDerm™ compared to other bases and the brand product; therefore it can be more effective at lower concentration (up to 3%) as compared to 5% or 10% in other bases.

  • Patient tested: Effectiveness of FoamaDerm™ has been tested at the University of Alberta on patients suffering from chronic pain. Click to read the article

Ketoprofen up to 3%

Lidocaine up to 3%

Diclofenac 3% with lidocaine 1% or 2% 

Ketoprofen 3% with lidocaine 1% or 2%
