Galderma has announced today that their 1% Ivermectin cream in development for rosacea as CD5024 has been approved and is now known as Soolantra.

Soolantra appears to be going to be promoted as a treatment that is quicker and more effective than Metrogel 0.75%.

Soolantra has been in development as CD5024 for many years. The earliest reference we’ve see was in 2006 when CD5024 was trialed in Australia. So Soolantra has been a long time coming to market.

Soolantra is available in 30 gram, 45 gram and 60 gram tubes.
