Incorporation of benzoyl peroxide nanocrystals into adapalene-loaded solid lipid microparticles: Part I – Nanocrystalline benzoyl peroxide

Publication date: Available online 15 April 2019Source: International Journal of PharmaceuticsAuthor(s): Christoph Brammann, Christel C. Mueller-GoymannAbstractHair follicles are a promising target for the administration of drugs to treat diseases associated with the pilosebaceous unit, such as acne. For solid lipid microparticle dispersions a successful and selective delivery of adapalene via targeted erosion of the particles in sebum has been shown. By embedding nanoparticulate benzoyl peroxide in lipid microparticles, the therapeutic potency of adapalene can be further increased by improving follicular deposition of benzoyl peroxide and minimizing direct contact between benzoyl peroxide and stratum corneum, which is responsible for the irritating potential of this active agent. The aim of this study was to develop a novel nanoparticulate formulation for benzoyl peroxide suitable for the incorporation in solid lipid microparticles. In this contribution, a wet grinding process using liposomal dispersions of fully hydrated phosphatidylcholine was developed, upscaled and optimized for solid content and stabilizer concentration. The resulting novel nanosuspension was characterized by particle size and morphology and examined for chemical and physical stability as well as solubility and polymorphism. During the process development a dependency between the colloidal microstructure of the stabilizer dispersion and milling efficiency was found: while physical mixtures fail to deliv...

Background:Cutibacterium acnes has been identified as one of the main triggers of acne. However, increasing knowledge of the human skin microbiome raises questions about the role of other skin commensals, such asStaphylococcus epidermidis, in the physiopathology of this skin disease.Summary: This review provides an overview of current knowledge of the potential role ofS. epidermidis in the physiopathology of acne. Recent research indicates that acne might be the result of an unbalanced equilibrium betweenC. acnes andS. epidermidis,according to dedicated interactions. Current treatments act onC. acnesonly. Other treatment o...

AbstractThe grape seed extract (GSE) and its main active polyphenol, resveratrol (RES), have shown considerable antioxidant activities, besides possessed protective and therapeutic effects against various skin complications. This paper discusses the favorable effects of RES, GSE and their nanoformulations for dermatological approaches, with specific emphasis on clinical interventions. In this manner, electronic databases including PubMed, Science Direct and Google Scholar were searched. Data were collected from 1980 up to February 2019. The search terms included “Vitis vinifera”, “grape”, “res...

Radiofrequency (RF) skin rejuvenation is improved using RF microneedling (RFM) devices. More aggressive treatments are performed safely with minimal downtime than previous RF devices. Optimizing treatment parameters is essential for safety and efficacy. Multiple RFM studies support minimal risks even in dark skin types. RFM has been used to treat acne scarring successfully as well as skin laxity and hyperhidrosis.
