Highly performant active ingredients are good and fine. But what good is the most precious ingredient if it doesn't end up where it's needed?
This is where the galenic formulation comes in. It deals with the question of how active ingredients must be processed to be able to take targeted action. For example, galenics determine which dosage form is optimal for a pharmaceutical, i.e. whether it will be offered in the form of tablets, powder, suppositories or ointment. But galenic formulas also play a key role in cosmetics. One well-known example are liposomes: small spheres that – when incorporated in a cream – ensure that active ingredients are transported into deeper skin layers. Without this carrier substance, the cosmetic product could only reach the upper skin layers and would therefore be less effective. By the way, galenic formulations owe their name to the Greek physician Galen (129 – 199), private physician to the Roman emperors.
Dr. Wolff Research has been dealing with galenic formulations for many years and has garnered a lot of attention in expert circles, e.g. with the early development of a so-called ambiphile cream base. The clou: This base can be mixed with both water and oil and is therefore particularly flexible in its application.
The most recent example of a highly effective dosage form is the new Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1. For this product, Dr. Wolff Research developed an intelligent shampoo formula that transports the innovative caffeine complex deep into the hair roots. The result: The caffeine acts directly "at the source," promotes hair growth and effectively prevents hereditary hair loss.
