Abstract

The present study highlights the importance of Hydrophillic-Lipophilic value of the base cream for the dermatological purposes beyond formulation stability. Hydrophilic- Lipophilic Balance (HLB) is largely considered for attaining stability of the base cream by the chosen emulsifier/ surfactants. However the base formulation (cream or ointment) also must act as an emulsifier to balance the hydrophilic- lipophilic ecosystem of the skin besides the formulation acts as the drug dispensing mechanism. Psorolin ointment for the treatment of psoriasis is being formulated with due diligence to HLB value due to the skin conditions of psoriasis. Details are presented in the paper.
