Our compounded dermatological products have undergone extensive research and development. The final compounded products must meet several quality standards, including chemical and physical stability, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, non-allergenic, and cosmetic acceptability, and preferably, cosmetic elegance.
The medications must also be able to release or deliver the desired therapeutic drug level, which is why developing dermatological dosage forms for targeted delivery can be quite complex. There are several factors to consider when designing a formulation, including the flux of the drug across the skin, the retention of the dosage form on the skin’s surface, the reservoir capacity of the dosage form, and the acceptability of the formulation to the patient.

The skin is the only organ that visually and outwardly shows the most obvious signs of aging. It regularly comes into direct contact with the environment, the air, and UV light; it contains hormone receptors that respond to hormone fluctuations over time; it carries the brunt of oxidative stress; and its connection to one’s physical appearance can have an effect on social interactions. It is no wonder there is a demand for cosmeceutical and anti-aging products.
Wrinkles, dyspigmentation, irregularities in texture, and other features of aging skin have been shown to distract from a youthful look. A 2007 study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology asked 353 raters to study images of female cheeks. They found that the homogeneity of skin color was found to significantly influence the perception of age, attractiveness, health and youth.1 Several other studies have established that greater success and opportunities in the workforce, increased mating opportunities, and overall happiness are also associated with a youthful and attractive appearance.2-3
The word cosmeceutical, a category of skin care products that have characteristics of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, was coined in the late 1970s to define products that can affect the appearance of the skin. Innovation’s line of cosmeceutical products is designed to slow down, reverse, or correct the inevitable aging process of the skin.
These products include:
- Firming and anti-wrinkle agents
- Facial peels and masks
- Moisturizers and under-eye formulations
- Skin-lightening agents
