What is compounding?

Compounding is the process of producing a pharmaceutical item to fit the unique needs of a patient. This allows for targeted and individualised therapy to better address the patients’ needs.

Compounding involves an active ingredient being formulated to the specific concentration and in a suitable vehicle (e.g cream/ointment or other base). The process requires specific equipment in a certified laboratory.
