Topical Solution/Cream/Gels

Definition : Products consisting of solutions, creams, and/or gels often made from plant materials, which do not contain drugs and do not act metabolically but can have other properties (e.g., some anesthetic or mild germicidal protection) that are designed for topical application. These products are applied locally and externally to specific areas of the body and are usually used to create a physical barrier on the surface of the skin. These topical solutions (that may be applied as an aerosol), creams, and gels can be also used to prevent absorption of certain environmental hazards (such as ultraviolet rays or allergens).
