Compounded Medications

We compound to your formulation using pharmaceutical-grade powders from recognised suppliers.  Should you require help in creating your preferred formulation, please get in touch.

Dermatology

We compound medications that treat Acne, Rosacea, Pigmentation, Psoriasis, Eczema, Scarring and Nail Fungus.  We also compound Anaesthetic Gels using one or a combination of Lidocaine, Tetracaine, Benzocaine and Prilocaine.

Anti-Ageing

Oestradiol, Oestriol, Melatonin and / or Progesterone can be combined with Lipoic Acid, Phytohormones, Boswellia, CoQ10, Hyaluronic Acid and vitamins A, C and E into a serum or cream to boost collagen production, plump the skin and reduce the effects of fine lines and wrinkles.  We also work with Ascorbic Acid, Kojic Acid, Malic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid to make customised chemical peels, lightening creams and anti-hyperpigmentation creams

Hair Loss

We work with Minoxidil, Finasteride, Latanoprost, Bimatoprost, Dutasteride, Tretinoin, Azelaic Acid, Spironolactone, Caffeine, Oestradiol, Progesterone, Cyproterone Acetate, Melatonin, Biotin, and D-Panthenol to create topical products for stimulating hair growth.  Please note that Minoxidil can be unstable at high concentrations and is sensitive to low temperatures, both of which can result in product crystallisation.

Tonics and foams are offered as dosing forms.  Tonics are alcohol-based and suitable for all ingredients other than Latanoprost and Bimatoprost.  Foams contain less than 10% alcohol and are suitable for all ingredients apart from Spironolactone and Cyproterone Acetate.

We also offer a serum that stimulates the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows as well as producing a lengthening and thickening effect.  It is a temperature-controlled product and must be kept refrigerated, below 8°C.

Bio-Identical Hormones

We compound creams, gels, capsules, lozenges, rapid dissolve tablets, oral drops and pessaries and work with Oestradiol, Oestriol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone and Melatonin.

Roseway Labs bases the shelf life of its products on scientific research regarding the stability of bio-identical hormones.  It is commonly accepted that oestrogens or combinations of hormones are the least stable in a cream or gel preparation and begin to lose their effectiveness after three months.  We therefore give most of our topical medication a shelf life of three months.  The exception to this is when a topical preparation contains only progesterone or only testosterone.  In these situations, a shelf life of six months can be given.

As a result, if a topical medication is only used once a day, the pack size of 30ml (100 doses) is usually most appropriate.  If it is to be used twice a day, then a 50ml tube (160 doses) can be selected.  We do offer a 100ml pump, although one pump from this tube dispenses a larger amount of cream, so it only provides 125 doses.

In all situations, compounded BHRT capsules, lozenges, pessaries and rapid dissolve tablets have a shelf life of 6 months.

Pain Management

Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is offered in both capsule and liquid form.

Other pain-relieving preparations can include: Amantadine, Amitriptyline, Baclofen, Clonidine, Lidocaine, Ibuprofen, Ketoprofen, Corticoids, NAIDS and Benzocaine.

Thyroid

Due to the rapidly rising costs and limited availability of natural desiccated thyroids, we have begun to compound thyroid suspension and capsules.  We use pharmaceutical-grade levothyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3), which can be offered individually or combined into the desired dose, as specified by an endocrinologist.
