Active ingredients: Clobetasol propionate
Product Name and Form
Dermovate Scalp Application.
Qualitative and Quantitative Composition
Each 1 g contains 0.5 mg of clobetasol propionate (0.05% w/w).
Clobetasol propionate, like other topical corticosteroids, has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. Corticosteroids are thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, collectively called lipocortins. It is postulated that these proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid.
