Quality Ingredients

The beginning of a compound starts with the base, which holds the active ingredients. The base is usually a cream, gel, ointment, or gel. Choosing the appropriate base for the compound is critical to the performance of the medication. We have access to the industry’s highest quality bases, such as the the ones listed below. This list is just a small portion of the many bases we keep in stock.


Atrevis HydroGel

The next-generation base for testosterone delivery.

It has long been assumed that testosterone absorbs well topically from a variety of bases. However, many patients and physicians often report problems with achieving desired testosterone levels in male patients. There are many variables that can affect these levels in men, and PCCA developed a new base that has proven results for testosterone delivery.

Atrevis Hydrogel is an advanced topical base designed specifically to deliver testosterone through the skin in male patients.


Clarifying Base

Used with dermatological compound formulations for teenage/adult acne, rosacea, oily skin, and aging skin prone to acne.

Supports healthy skin because of its unique avocado extract. Moisturizing properties for any skin type, including oily skin. Natural ingredients that may improve the appearance of red, blotchy skin. Works in conjunction with added ingredients (such as benzoyl peroxide and antimicrobials) and may also promote faster release and improved delivery of these ingredients. Reduces the chances of irritation that are often seen with acne medications because of its phospholipid emulsifiers that are mild and mimic skin lipids. Can also be used in anti-aging formulations.



Created for formulations targeting patients with eczema, psoriasis and xerosis (dry skin). Replenishes the lipids within the skin. Nourishes the skin’s structural integrity. Improves the appearance of red and irritated skin.

It uses the power and synergy of natural boswellic acid, avenanthramides from oats, phosphatidylglycerol and elegant film formers to deliver and improve the action of common active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used in formulations for these patients. Quickly replenishes the lamellar bilayers of the skin. Nourishes the skin’s structural integrity. Reduces the appearance of red and irritated skin.



Scientifically proven to deliver medications through the skin and is supported by an ever-growing portfolio of peer-reviewed journal publications. It is the ideal base in deep penetrating topical formulations for local absorption of active ingredients as well as transdermal formulas for systemic absorption of active ingredients.



A revolutionary mucosal delivery system that provides long-lasting coverage and improves contact time. This innovative base can be used in a variety of potential formulations, including oral, rectal, vaginal and esophageal/ gut preparations as well as wound care. It’s a great option for patients suffering from conditions like mouth ulcers (including those resulting from cancer treatment), esophagitis and more.



The only compounding base created for scar therapy. Due to the base’s proprietary blend of ingredients, including silicones (in a semipermeable polymer network that’s ideal for healing) and Pracaxi oil (which is rich in skin-friendly fatty acids and lipids), it’s been helping make a huge difference for patients with scars, including keloid and acne scars.

Appropriate for new or old scars. Provides long-lasting moisturization, protecting the skin’s barrier and reduces water loss. Promotes a healing, soothing and nurturing environment. Rich in skin-friendly fatty acids and lipids. Can be used with or without active ingredients. Formulated without gluten, casein, dye and parabens, among other allergens.


Spira-Wash Gel

Spira-Wash Gel is a remarkably adherent base designed for a variety of different applications, including anti-infection treatments of the skin, dermatology, occlusive needs, wound care and topical humectants. It is a soft, opaque polyethylene glycol (PEG) ointment base containing organic meadowsweet extract. Due to the phenolic glycosides (spiraein) and flavonoids in the meadowsweet, it potentially has germicidal, anti-inflammatory and healing properties, thus making it a good choice for wounds, ulcers, burns, sores and cuts. Spira-Wash is a water-washable base, which is very important in wound care since wounds need to be cleaned/debrided on a regular basis. Ointments that are not water soluble often present a big problem to healthcare providers.
