Did you know we use professional dermatological bases for our skin-targeting compounds? Take a look at our exclusive line of topical delivery vehicles.

PCCA Clarifying Base™
Developed by PCCA compounding scientists, Clarifying Base™ is best for patients with problem skin. It’s patent-pending technology decreases oil formation, is highly moisturizing, and boasts natural ingredients – like avocado extract – that may improve the appearance and reduce irritation of red, blotchy skin. The lipid-mimicking base may promote faster release and improved delivery of medications. It can serve as a great skin-booster by itself, but when combined with active ingredients – like antibiotics and acne medications – it can become an affordable, personalized solution for acne or rosacea sufferers. Best of all, it’s stable when compounded with benzoyl peroxide, making it a powerful prescription treatment option.

Another base from PCCA scientists, VersaBase™ is noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic and is formulated to be nonirritating, smooth, ant gentle. It’s a solid choice for most topical creams, especially for hormone replacement therapy, as it’s simulates the natural moisturizing barrier of the skin. It’s oil-free, petrolatum-free, paraben-free, and odor-free.

With exclusive patented technology, LipoDerm is the first proven permeation-enhancing vehicle in the compounding industry. It’s actually included in the official USP Compounded Preparation Monograph (Ondansetron Compounded Topical Gel 20mg/mL). With scientifically-backed absorption-boosting abilities, LipoDerm™ is smooth, creamy, non-sticky, and non-comedogenic. It’s nut-free, peanut-free, and gluten-free. It’s room temperature-stable and can be compounded with combinations of NSAIDS, muscle relaxants, anesthetics, some hormones, and more.
