Testosterone Creams Vs. Gels, Which One Is Better?
By far, creams offer superior penetration compared to gels. Testosterone creams compound in a base that provides a much higher penetration of the testosterone through the skin (40-50%) compared to the 10% penetration of most water-based gels. Since five times the amount of drug is being delivered into circulation by using a transdermal cream, versus a gel, a lower amount needs to be applied to achieve optimal testosterone levels.
Creams also moisten the skin, while alcohol-based gels dry it out. Higher active ingredient loads can be accommodated with creams compared to gels, as most hormones (mainly testosterone) are not water-soluble and require a lipophilic vehicle to get through the dermis (skin) into the systemic circulation.
