According to the WHO’s classification of topical corticosteroids, Efficort® is classified as potent (Group III). (1)

 

Active Ingredient

1. Increases penetration into the skin (2)

The active ingredient of Efficort® Cream increases rate of cutaneous penetration, making it more effective. This allows a lower dosage administration.

2. Reduces side effects which makes it safer (3)

The active ingredient of Efficort® Cream enables high local activity with reduced systemic effects. It also minimizes atrophogenic potential.
