Abstract:  This article represents the third in a series of articles on tips and hints of compounding. In this issue, we will discuss some tips and hints for the compounding of ointments, creams, pastes, gels, and gel-creams. For clarification, a gel-cream is a cream in which the external aqueous phase has been thickened using a gelling agent; the advantage is a more stable cream.
