Sabine's CaseSabine, a 40-year-old female patient with hyperpigmentation, required a prescription for hydroquinone 4% cream from her pharmacist, Simon Smith. She had been using this prescription for a long time and told Simon that she had recently started to experience dehydrated skin, which was vulnerable to winter conditions. Sabine asked him for advice on the best skin care option.
The ChallengeHydroquinone is an API susceptible to oxidation. For Sabine’s dehydrated skin, a solution containing hydroquinone in a single formulation would be preferable.
The SolutionBy compounding with the unique Fagron trademark vehicles from Fagron Advanced Derma, pharmacists are able to deliver exclusive solutions that add significant value and offer customized treatment to patients. Patient satisfaction, therapy compliance and patients’ quality of life are thus improved.
The CureSimon Smith compounded hydroquinone 4% in Nourivan™ Antiox and was able to deliver an elegant
single treatment skin care solution to Sabine. She commented that applying just one product was much more convenient and that there had been a marked improvement in her skin condition. She also requested additional advice about a customized, anti-ageing solution.
