Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Topical semisolids can effectively deliver therapeutics to a targeted area, with the added benefit of speed, convenient application and reduced risk of side effects. Due to these advantages it should come as no shock that this area of drug delivery is steadily growing and primed for innovation.

This webinar will discuss emerging trends in the expanding topical market as well as a host of formulation considerations, such as those pertaining to solubility, stability, bioavailability and inactive ingredients. The team at Lubrizol Life Science Health (LLS Health) will also demystify the process of developing the right topical formulation, broken down step by step, from initial considerations and choosing a dosage form to preliminary product evaluation and optimization.
