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.
