    I use Dimethyl isosorbide to dissolve benzoyl peroxide for making.gel.
    Is there any other solublizer for Benzoyl Peroxide?
    I made ADAPALNE+ Benzoyl Peroxide gel,but it's yellowish. Any suggestion.
    I know this is pharma formulation question.
    But required help for this formulation.
    My benzoyl peroxide plain gel is white.

    Thank you.

      Benzoyl peroxide is an oxidising agent, DMI and adapalene are not compatible with strong oxidisers. You're trying to mix fire and water.

      Thank you.
      I found Hot PG can solublize Benzoyl Peroxide. I think removing DMI will solve the problem.
      Thank you so much.
      This combination products available in the market.
      They Use POLOXAMER. I don't find info & role of this.
      Thank you again.

      It's take temp. of 95 C so it is dangerous to dissolve in PG.
      also find one other ingredient Docusate sodium. role or purpose to use cannot understand.

    Hi Pharma
                  I am quite a novice at formulating as I just completed my diploma. From reading your posts I understand you have many years of experience in this field. Would it be possible to provide me some consulting advice? And I am not expecting it to be free. I also understand if it is not possible and wouldn't take offense. Looking forward to your reply.
