The development process of Semisolid drugs combines four major formulation bases: oleaginous or hydrocarbon bases (ointments), anhydrous or absorption bases, emulsion bases (including water-in-oil or oil-in-water bases) and water-soluble bases (gels). The presence of oleaginous, anhydrous and water-in-oil bases are lipophilic, emollient and occlusive (preventing water loss from the skin) with a prolonged contact on the application area while oil-in-water and water-soluble bases are hydrophilic, non-greasy, non-occlusive and water washable. Few common excipients used in semisolid formulations include buffers, humectants, permeation enhancers, antioxidants, preservatives, thickeners, and chelating agents.
The topical formulation is designed to ensure that the active ingredients get easily absorbed into the desired skin layers at sufficient amounts for therapeutic effects. In most skin diseases, the target site lies in the viable epidermis or upper dermis, which is beneath the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin made up of non-viable cells. The stratum corneum acts as a major barrier for drug penetration, which is impermeable to almost all compounds and molecules with a molecular weight greater than 500 Daltons. Taking the proper concentration of the carrier base, the incorporation of permeation enhancers into the formulation (such as ethanol, propylene glycol), and increasing skin hydration are commonly used strategies to enhance skin absorption. These topical drugs even get absorbed through hair follicles and sweat glands, but generally, it is avoided in most cases.
Based on Application, the market is segmented into Metered Topical Dispensers and Swab Topical Dispensers. Based on Material, the market is segmented into Semi-solid, Liquid and Solid. Based on countries, the market is segmented into Germany, UK, France, Russia, Spain, Italy, and Rest of Europe.
