  • Abstract

    The objective of this work was to develop the semi-solid topical gel formulations of mometasone furoate and study in vitro skin penetration through rat skin. The concentration of carbopol 940, ethanol and propylene glycol in gel formulation was optimized by Box-Behnken statistical screening design. The concentration of carbopol 940 (X1), concentration of ethanol (X2) and concentration of propylene glycol (X3) were selected as independent variables. The flux (j), total amount released at 8 hours (Q8) and enhancement Ratio (ER) were selected as dependent variables. All gel formulations showed good results for different parameters like drug content, pH, viscosity, and spredibility. A marked effect of independent variables (concentration of carbopol 940, ethanol and Propylene Glycol) on mometasone furoate permeation was observed when it was incorporated gel formulations. The values of J, ER and Q8 were strongly dependent on the independent variables.
