    Curious as to whether anyone has experience with this molecule, it seems quite effective at low doses at increasing penetration of  a wide variety of drugs including steroids,antibiotics and antiviral agents. 

    Thoughts for use in anti acne otc drugs with either salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide?
