Testimonials. They said it!

"NovaFilm™ is an easy-to-use mucoadhesive base that allows compounders to better service our patients using a variety of preparations. NovaFilm™ can be used as-is for compounded gels with no need to thicken the base or it can be easily diluted with water to compound anything from a magic mouthwash to nasal sprays. I’ve also enjoyed using it in combination with VersaPro™ Cream Base for vaginal preparations. The versatility it allows is unmatched in the industry!"

"NovaFilm™ (mucoadhesive base) for vaginal administration of estriol had an appreciable impact on vaginal restoration as rated using a comparative vaginal health index (VHI) as well as patient reporting. I will continue using this base as part of my hormone protocols."
