AKVANO® vs ointments and creams
AKVANO® is fundamentally different from ointments and creams. In ointments and creams, active components need to pass through one or several phase boundaries, and rubbing is needed for the formulation to interact with the skin. In contrast, AKVANO® formulations forms an even lipid layer on the skin surface after the solvent quickly evaporates and thereby facilitates an efficient interaction with the skin where no rubbing is required.
Ointments form an occlusive layer on the skin from which the active substance slowly diffuses into the stratum corneum.
Creams consist of small droplets from which the active substance has to pass phase boundaries in order to reach the stratum corneum.
AKVANO® instantly forms a thin lipid layer in which the active substance is evenly distributed enabling quicker, direct penetration into the stratum corneum.
