Antioxidants such as vitamins E and C are known to play a significant role in ameliorating or preventing oxidative damage to the skin. However, to provide a satisfactory protection they must first permeate the skin, which serves as a permeation barrier. In this study we evaluated the influence of three different formulations (gel, gel-emulsion and emulsion) on the percutaneous absorption of 4-nerolidylcathecol, an antioxidant compound isolated from Pothomorphe umbellata root extracts. Also, the absorption of the isolated 4-nerolidylcathecol was compared with its absorption when dried P. umbellata root ethanolic extract was incorporated into a gel formulation. The 'lag time method' was employed for the analysis of the in vitro permeation data. All formulations showed satisfactory percutaneous penetration with the 4-nerolidylcathecol-gel presenting a higher rate of penetration leading to higher dry drug levels in the tissue.
