Dermatologic Medications

“I went to Koshland Pharm because I have a prescription for dandruff shampoo, and I wanted to get the active ingredient in a sulfate-free base. They immediately found an appropriate base and emailed me the ingredient list so I could verify that it was what I wanted. The shampoo works great.”

  • skin dyspigmentation (discoloration)

  • pruritus (itchy skin)

Koshland Pharm meets the highest standards for quality and safety in its profession. When it comes to dermatologic creams, it is important that a compounding pharmacy use an ointment mill to reduce the particle size of the cream’s active ingredients and to ensure consistency.
