Steve's CaseSteve required a repeat prescription of benzoyl peroxide 5% and clindamycin HCl 1% in a gel for his acne. He complained to his pharmacist, Mr Nguyen, about the amount of time needed to apply the two products and an unpleasant dry skin feeling after frequent use.
The ChallengeDue to Steve’s dehydrated skin condition, a cream would be better for his skin type than a gel, and combining both APIs in a single formulation would be preferable.
