9,11) Through incorporation of the hydrophobic emollient polyoxypropylene stearyl ether, formulation scientists were able to successfully combine Cal and BD into both an ointment and a suspension with homogenous and stable distribution of both compounds; this allowed for proportionately enhanced cutaneous delivery of both active ingredients based on in vitro skin penetration assays as compared with other tested excipents.
The custom blend cream, prepared at the researchers' request by Johnson & Johnson (Skillman, NJ), contained purified water, propylene glycol, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, polysorbate 20, isopropyl myristate, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, benzoic acid, glycerin, and sodium hydroxide.
The product is a novel, topically administered, selective, small molecule inhibitor of stearyl Co-A desaturase, an enzyme involved in lipid synthesis that is expressed in sebaceous glands in the skin.
After which, the mixed stearyl alcohol, white wax and white petrolatum for the absorption ointment base were melted at a heat not less than 75 C using a hot dish with water thermometer.
Abstract The effects of the type and amount of the surfactant and cosurfactant on the miniemulsion polymerization of acrylate monomers were studied, and the comparison of the kinetics between miniemulsion polymerization and conventional emulsion polymerization was discussed in the presence of reactive surfactant allyloxy nonylphenol propyl polyoxyethylene (10), ether sulfate (DNS-86), and reactive cosurfactant stearyl methacrylate (SMA).

Sodium stearyl fumarate was selected as a lubricant and its level was optimized in batch F7 to F11 according to its lubrication property for blend to be filled.
However, G50/13 based matrix containing stearyl alcohol caused greater retardation in release rate compared to G50/13 and provided more linear release profile which was chosen for comparison with HPMC based tablets.
