If you would like to try it for your patients, you can adapt a prescription ordered 5% or 10% diclofenac or ketoprofen to up to 3% diclofenac in FoamaDerm™.


A better solution for topical drug delivery

As pharmacists, we realized that some of the bases available for compounding diclofenac are not effective. These bases are mostly oily, sticky, not easy to apply and with sub optimum effectiveness. Over the years we heard the same from other pharmacists and realized that we needed to find a solution to this problem. We designed a better base - FoamaDerm™ - with the end user in mind - the patient; for the ease of application, ease of compounding and above all a better drug release profile to ensure optimum effectiveness with lower concentration, up to 3% diclofenac. 

Following ingredients can be added to FoamaDerm™:

Ketoprofen up to 3%

Lidocaine HCl up to 3%

Menthol, and camphor up to 1%

Ketamine up to 4%

Adding other ingredients or other concentrations has not been studied.
