Abstract: Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was used to investigate the mechanism of action of a proprietary skin penetration enhancer, dodecyl-2-(N,N-dimethylamino)propionate (DDAIP) in dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) liposomes. Furthermore, the effect of enhancer concentration on lipid thermotropic transitions was investigated. With increasing concentrations of DDAIP (from 5 to 50 mol%), the main transition peak shifted to lower temperatures and became more broad. The pretransition peak also shifted to low…
