Azone Oil (Laurocapram) is a new-style, high effective penetrant. It can accelerate the penetration of hydrophilic medicine and lipophilic medicine through the skin. Absorption enhancers are substances used for temporarily increasing a membrane’s permeability (e.g., the skin and mucosa), either by interacting with its components (lipids or proteins) or by increasing the membrane or vehicle partition coefficient.
Laurocapram is combined as an excipient not an active ingredient. Excipients are added to ensure that the shelf-life of the active ingredients can be long enough to be active until internal use. Excipients are combined also to support the active ingredients, so that the latter can be easily administered or absorbed in the body.
