Aqueous Testosteron as topical?
« on: September 14, 2020, 03:28:43 am »
I am wondering if testosterone suspension which is water based and esterless when applied to scrotum should absorb in the skin?
If not how easy is it to make a topical solution from this?  Can this be achieved by mixing in some household cream?

I'm thinking this may not work at all. Testosterone suspension has testosterone crystals that are surely too large to pass through the skin. Testosterone in oil would be a better starting point, but it may still need other ingredients to work well as a transdermal product.

Couldn't we just dissolve the crystals by warming them like mixing them in warm water and then applying that?

Testosterone is minimally soluble in water (23.4 mg/L at 25 °C), so this won't work. It needs to be oil or alcohol.
