Abstract
Purpose. Stable oil/water (o/w) microemulsions are very effective vehicle systems for dermal administration of drugs having no or low skin penetration. These systems, consisting of oils, a blend of a high and a low HLB surfactant, and a hydrophilic phase (propylene glycol/water), were developed using pharmaceutically acceptable components.

Extended static and dynamic light scattering results on micellar solutions of the dihydroxy bile salt NaGDC (sodium glycodeoxycholate) are presented. From the measurements the apparent molar mass and the mean aggregation number, the apparent diffusion coefficient and the mean hydrodynamic radius for the micelles as a function of NaGDC concentration (8.5−28.0 g/L), ionic strength of the solution (0.03−0.2 M NaCl added), and temperature (20−35 °C) are deduced. The apparent micellar size versus sur...

Abstract Laser light scattering was used to monitor particle size and polydispersity of several water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsion formulations upon dilution with excess of the dispersed (aqueous) phase to induce phase inversion and generate oil-in-water (o/w) and/or water-in-oil-in-water (w/o/w) emulsions. Factors affecting particle size, such as, the extent and temperature of dilution, as well as, sample storage conditions were investigated. In addition, the particle size of diluted formulations...

Dynamic light scattering from highly concentrated colloidal systems with a narrow distribution of particle sizes can be interpreted in terms of the sum of two independent modes due, respectively, to collective diffusion and polydispersity fluctuations; a general formalism has been presented for calculating the relative mode amplitudes for hard spheres in the Percus–Yevick approximation [Pusey, Fijnaut, and Vrij, J. Chem. Phys. 77, 4270(1982)]. This work extends the relative mode amplitude calcul...

Several component diagrams for different alcohols as cosurfactants and potassium oleate as the surfactant were investigated. Between the regions of the water-in-oil microemulsion and the micellar solution (reverse micelles), and diagrams showed a zone of instability which was determined by particle size analysis by means of photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS). The poly-dispersity of the internal phase was determined at the instant of microemulsion formation and after fixed intervals of storage...

In this paper, we outline a simple procedure for analyzing small angle neutron scattering (SANS) spectra from interacting colloids containing a continuous distribution of particle sizes. In particular, the effects of polydispersity on the apparent interparticle structure factor S′(Q) observed by SANS is investigated. We find that the oscillations in S′(Q) are significantly damped in comparison to those of the true structure factor S(Q). When our procedure is extended to the analysis of SANS spec...

This paper concerns the dynamic light scattering by suspensions of polydisperse hard spherical particles. It is concluded that for relatively high volume fractions and fairly narrow distributions, the light scattering correlation function should, to a good degree of approximation, be composed of two independent modes with well‐separated decay times. The faster decaying mode describes collective stochastic compression–dilation motions and is present even for a monodisperse system. The slower deca...

The purpose of this review is to understand why a random structure of this type does not collapse into an ordered phase. The interface saturated by surfactant has a nearly vanishing surface tension; one essential parameter is then the elastic constant K describing the curvature elasticity of the interface. The persistence length xi/sub K/ of the interface increases exponentially with K. This should have some important effects. (1) When K is above a certain value K/sub c/ the interfaces tend to s...

A framework for interpreting experiments on Doppler shifts in light scattering from pure liquids and polymer solutions is presented. The spectral density of the light scattered into a given frequency range and angle by a liquid composed of identical, isotropic particles much smaller than the wavelength of the incident light is expressed in terms of the Fourier transform of the two‐body space—time correlation function. The formalism is then applied to the problem of light scattering from dilute p...

The three-dimensional classical many-body system is approximated by the use of collective coordinates, through the assumed knowledge of two-body correlation functions. The resulting approximate statistical state is used to obtain the two-body correlation function. Thus, a self-consistent formulation is available for determining the correlation function. Then, the self-consistent integral equation is solved in virial expansion, and the thermodynamic quantities of the system thereby ascertained. T...

Abstract The time–temperature superposition principle (TTSP) was applied to the destabilization kinetics of a pharmaceutical emulsion. The final goal of this study is to predict precisely the emulsion stability after long-term storage from the short-period accelerated test using TTSP. As the model emulsion, a cream preparation that is clinically used for the treatment of pruritus associated with chronic kidney disease was tested. After storage at high temperatures ranging from 30 to 45 °C for de...

: A moisturizing cream mixed with a steroid ointment is frequently prescribed to patients suffering from atopic dermatitis. However, there is a concern that the mixing operation causes destabilization. The present study was performed to investigate the stability of such preparations closely using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As sample preparations, five commercial moisturizing creams that are popular in Japan were mixed with an ointment base, a white petrolatum, at a volume ratio of 1 : 1. ...

: A menthol-diphenhydramine cream is prepared in hospital pharmacies and then prescribed to patients for the treatment of pruritus associated with chronic kidney disease. The purpose of this study is to design a stable formulation without any concern about phase separation during its clinical use on patients. As a preventive measure against phase separation, various surfactants and thickeners were incorporated into the creams. The test creams were stored at 40°C, and then their phase separation ...

We have recently established a novel method to evaluate the emulsion stability of pharmaceutical skin cream. The key technology of the method is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The purpose of this study was to verify the usefulness of the method in the cosmetic industry.Milky lotion-type emulsions were employed as test samples. We note that the test samples were prepared by taking account of commercial milky lotions. After the sample preparation, a centrifugation treatment (5000 g for up to 12...

Cyclic nitroxides are a large group of compounds composed of diverse stable radicals also known as synthetic antioxidants. Although nitroxides are valuable for use in several skin conditions, in in vivo conditions they have several drawbacks, such as nonspecific dispersion in normal tissue, preferential renal clearance and rapid reduction of the nitroxide to the corresponding hydroxylamine. However, these drawbacks can be easily addressed by encapsulating the nitroxides within microemulsions. Th...

AbstractA non-destructive method for monitoring creaming of emulsion-based formulations is in great demand because it allows us to understand fully their instability mechanisms. This study was aimed at demonstrating the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) techniques, including MR imaging (MRI) and MR spectroscopy (MRS), for evaluating the physicochemical stability of emulsion-based formulations. Emulsions that are applicable as the base of practical skin creams were used as test samples. Subst...

Abstract Several skin diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis are associated with the depletion or disturbance of stratum corneum (SC) lipids such as ceramides (CERs), free fatty acids and cholesterol. Studies suggested that replenishment of these lipids might help to treat diseased, affected or aged skin. With this premises in mind, there are some formulations in the market that contain SC lipids and currently, to facilitate permeation of the lipids deep into the SC, various CERs, and ...
