Pastuszka M et al. – Betamethasone dipropionate is a potent topical glucocorticoid which demonstrates anti–inflammatory, anti–proliferative, immunosuppressive and vasoconstrictive properties. Salicylic acid, in turn, has a strong keratolytic and slightly antiseptic action. The use of both components in one formulation provides a significantly better glucocorticoid penetration through the skin, which is crucial for the treatment of hyperkeratotic lesions.
