Preparation of Compound Aloe Film and Tests of its Film Performance
OBJECTIVE To prepare traditional Chinese pharmaceutical film which can be absorbed through derma and have an effect of topical antibacterial , and take examinations of its film performance. METHODS The active ingredients extracted from the traditional Chinese medicine such as Aloe are blended in a certain proportion as the dressing of chitosan and casted into films.
