Ointments are preparations for external use, intended for application to the skin. Typically, they have an oily or greasy consistency and can appear “stiff” as they are applied to the skin. Ointments contain drug that may act on the skin or be absorbed through the skin for systemic action. Many ointments are made from petroleum jelly. Like many other pharmaceutical preparations, they frequently contain preservatives and may also contain aromatic substances and dyes to enhance patient acceptance. Although there is generally no agreed-upon pharmaceutical definition for creams, they are very much like ointments in their use. Their composition is somewhat like that of ointments except that creams often have water-in-oil emulsions as the base of the formulation. When applied to the skin, creams feel soft and supple and spread easily.
