Active pharmaceutical ingredients identified and measured in this preparation are the mixtures of ingredients which are of peroxide nature, such as hydroperoxides and ozonides of lipid nature.
Oil solution OLEOZON Topiko shows extreme germicide effects, because of which it is used to treat infections caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses. This product stimulates tissue regeneration and its use does not cause side effects, which has been proved by detailed pre-clinic examinations. It successfully passed all the pre-clinic toxicological examinations and all the requests of general toxicological studies (acute and sub-acute toxicity), local toxicology (skin irritation, ophthalmologic irritations, phototoxicity and sensitivity) and special toxicity (tests of teratogenicity and mutagenicity ).
